The holidays are approaching, inevitably the year is coming to an end, so I am at my balance sheet as a woman.

The past year has not been an easy one, as I run two businesses. Employees, customers, suppliers, sales, marketing... it's my daily lot.

I love entrepreneurship! I love my companies and I'm very excited about the plans for 2020! But as a woman, I look back and see that many of my personal goals have not been achieved, nor are they on the way to being achieved.

I've been a very fitness minded person for a long time, but 2019 wasn't my healthiest year. I have taken several shortcuts... and therefore gained weight.

For the past two months or so, I've regained control of my diet without having a weight or number in mind as a goal.

Then I added 30 minutes of training per day.

It's not always easy; I have crazy days! But I realized that my health was declining.

Breathless or unable to lift big boxes (not practical, I get them every week). I used to be able to drive up and down to the third floor and back without even feeling hot or out of breath, but now I find myself burned after only one trip! WTF????

But where is this project to buy a duplex?!? Pfff... I may have given up on my finances, but in November, I prioritized my own salary. Saving is important! And squandering my savings makes me sleepless at night.

As for family, I miss my youngest child and my grandson, but unfortunately I don't have control over them, and I can't force my daughter to want a relationship with me. Luckily, this is not the case for my oldest daughter with whom I have a great relationship!

So yes, 2019 won't end where I would have liked to end it, but when you're going through a period of change, you're also going through a period of upheaval in your lifestyle. At least my wanderings are on and 2020 will really be my year, I can feel it!

The last month of the year is starting and I'm happy to end it by taking charge of the aspects of my life as a woman that I had given up.

I don't pretend to be perfect, but I work to always go further than the day before and I love the balance sheet period.

I move every day at my own pace and I refuse to weigh myself, take pictures of myself or even measure myself, because I am looking for a sense of well-being. I just want to be fit and not be a fitness woman. I do it for my health in a simple way.

In the next few days, I will be working on my dream board for 2020. I'm making one for each of my companies and one for myself, much more personal. I hang them in a place that only I can see, but a place where I see them every day.

Don't be afraid to admit that you haven't been able to achieve all your goals, it's not a failure. Sometimes life takes us in unexpected turns and I firmly believe that it knows where it is leading us.
