Navigate (v.)

The word “navigate” has a variety of meanings:

  • to travel over, through, or on (water, air, or land) in a boat, aircraft, etc.
  • to plan and direct the course of a vessel or vehicle
  • to make sequential progress through something

…to name a few. Each of these pertains to my current lifestyle.

  • to travel over, through, or on (water, air, or land) in a boat, aircraft, etc.

Well, this one is obvious. On any given day, I’m on a plane, train, or automobile – literally navigating my way through airports, cities, and countries – whether for business or for leisure.

  • to plan and direct the course of a vessel or vehicle

I am constantly planning (and re-planning) and determining my next course of action. Where do I want to be in five years? How do I want to look? How do I want to feel? I am always working to figure out what I want, and looking for ways to get myself to that point. My to-do lists, planners, Pinterest boards, and podcast / Instagram choices, etc. are ways for me to help plan the next month / year / five years / rest of my life. #controlfreak

  • to make sequential progress through something

I’ve been on a journey to weight loss for 15+ years. I’ve been on a journey to optimal health for the last three or so. The most progress I’ve made physically has happened in the last two. The most progress I’ve made mentally, has been just over one…and it’s the one of which I’m most proud. I’ve come a loooong way from the insecure, self-deprecating, unhealthy girl. I’ve made progress over the course of  this 15+ year journey, and am hoping for more.
