The end of the year always leaves me reflecting on the past year. Thinking about if I have been settling. Thinking about what I could do better. Thinking about what went well and what works perfectly.
So I normally write down some resolutions. I try to “limit” it to no more than 20. I mean I could think of so many things to do better, then I would just get depressed at how much work I think I need .
Years past it has always been things like exercise more, save more money, be a better wife, mother, friend.
And while those are great goals, they are just too vague for me. This year I have been thinking about ways to really make some changes for the better.
As soon as I read it, which was moments ago, I knew THAT is what I had to do. So I will be setting up a few GOALS a month and then posting my progress on them. Then each month I will be reflecting and seeing the progress as opposed to waiting a year and only seeing the resolutions that I didn’t make. (Really the gym lasted a few months this year, and I still go occasionally, once in the last 6 months is occasionally, right?)
I have got my thinking cap on now as to which ones I would like to work on first.
I am going to start out slowly so how about in January I focus on 2 things:
- Eating out less, and having more healthy snacks in the house. My dinners are planned pretty well with E-Mealz. I still struggle with breakfast and lunches.
- Keeping Laundry caught up. I will do at least 1 batch every day, all the way through. WASH –DRY- FOLD- PUT AWAY
I am going to start focusing now, a head start for me is always good. Then check back in February to hopefully celebrate my successes!!!
