the spiritual ashley
ashley the wife
the social ashley
the academic ashley
the physical ashley
... and at any given time, i can only be two of those at once.
i rotate from being really social and hanging out with friends and being a good wife, to focusing only on church and school and putting all other relationships on the back burner. other weeks i am caught up on assignments and have straight a's, but i also gain 5+ lbs. sometimes i am so good to my husband and i give him all of the attention he needs, but then i forget about praying or my church calling. it is so incredibly difficult to balance all five ashleys at once.
so this year, i am going to set goals that cater to all the ashleys,
hopefully bringing balance to my life.
spiritual: attend the temple at least twice a month,
and read the book of mormon
wife: do spontaneous things with my husband,
and follow these rules i found on pinterest
social: be more outgoing in the ward,
and invite people over more often
academic: straight A's next semester,
and no ditching class
physical: NO CAFFINE in 2013,
and exercise at least 3 times a week
i figured if i blogged about these goals, the publicity would pressure me into accomplishing them. so wish me luck as i strive to make 2013 a year of bettering myself and becoming the person i want to be.
