I’m currently receiving complimentary Invisalign® treatment in exchange for sharing
my experience, once a month, but this month, I thought I would share some of my
goals for my first year in my thirties…since I just entered a new age bracket, and all.
1. Get on a regular sleep schedule. Long since past are the days when all-
nighters were no sweat. I used to be able to go to school and ace my classes
on no sleep, take a quick nap, stay up all night, repeat. I don’t know how I
survived past my teens, to be honest. Even still, I sometimes get three hours
a night. Insomnia is the worst, and sleep is the best. My goal is to do
everything in my power to change my sleeping habits. I don’t want to look
like an old lady by the time I’m 35, and if I don’t start getting that beauty
sleep, it’s inevitable.
2. Finish my Invisalign treatment. As of now, I’m about 1/3 through my entire
treatment, and I’m already loving the results. Going from one set of
Invisalign clear aligners to the next is a breeze, and I’ve gotten so used to
wearing them – but I can’t wait for the final results. Getting Invisalign
aligners was one of the best decisions I’ve made, for myself. (p.s. If you are
interested in Invisalign treatment, you can request more info, here.)
3. Find a type of exercise I enjoy. I work out because I have to, not because I
enjoy it. But I’ve always envied those who look forward to working out – I
have friends who live for it. I’m not sure if they’re under some magic spell
that I need to look into, or if they just found something that works for them,
but I want that. I’ve always been hesitant to try new classes, because I get
really anxious when I don’t know anyone or what I’m doing.
4. Spend more time with my family. I know it seems like I’m with my family all
the time, but it doesn’t feel that way, to me! Even though my extended
family is scattered all over the place, my immediate family is completely in
South Florida. I now have two nieces and two nephews, and if I’ve learned
anything from little Chichi (that’s Tessa, my littlest sister), it’s that kids grow
up way too quickly. We’ve also lost a lot of our loved ones, over the last few
years – every moment with family is precious. This year, we had our first
family vacation, ever. It’s our goal to make it an annual tradition.
5. Take my mom on vacation. My mom was young and single when she raised
my sisters and me; she made a lot of sacrifices and worked a lot of jobs to
keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. Even still, she never gets a
break. I would love to take her on a trip – preferably an international one,
since she’s never been out of the country. She deserves a true vacation! Not
surprisingly, the last two are the ones I’m most looking forward to.
