Welcome to a bright and shiny new year! I'm truly excited for all the possibilities a fresh start can bring. What are your goals for 2019?
I enjoyed the holiday season last month which included my 28th birthday on December 27th. I spent the day in Seattle eating and window shopping and finished off with a generous plate of homemade sushi that night. My anxiety levels have not been great, but I'm getting through.
One of the aspects of my life that I am most excited about right now is my startup, Sapient Living. My mission is to lead humanity onto a more sustainable path and I have quite a few strategies to accomplish this goal. All paperwork to found the company is completed, but I still have the opportunity to learn more about taxes and being a good boss. It feels great to be at this point in my journey!
Since founding Sapient Living my work with food has taken on a deeper and broader perspective. I still work on the Sapient Diet every week, including sourcing and recipe development, but right now I'm in the middle of creating a report on the state of food systems in America which includes my vision on where I believe we can get to as a society. The research is very fun for me.
I anticipate even more adulting this year between the business and earning an income, continuing to work towards moving to a new place, working on understanding health insurance and generally becoming excellent at personal and professional finance. There are so many new things to handle all the time, but I can see that I'm learning lessons that will make me more effective in the future.
Self care, routines, and compassionate communication have all become extremely important as Thomas and I continue building a life together that we truly love. What are some things that you do for yourself that help you achieve your goals? I'd love to hear about it!
