I just have to say that I love that song and every New Year I sing it to myself. I’ve decided to make some resolutions for myself, if you will. I like to think of them more as tweaks and plans to help me enjoy life more.
One of my absolute favorite quotes is:
“In a world where you can be anything be yourself.”
Well, I haven’t felt like I’ve been being myself. I feel like I’m stuck in a cycle of making excuses and some days I see myself being more bitter than happy which is never a good thing. I find myself trapped in what ifs, pity and sometimes resentment. It’s not a good fit for me and my family.
This year I resolve to teach myself that I am perfect, my family is perfect and our situation(s) with life are indeed perfect.
To help myself I outlined some goals and here is the reason for all of this…
_ Clean and organize home office
_ Clean and organize front porch into play center
_ Clean and organize basement
_ Create craft center in basement
_ Automate ALL of our bills
_ Setup ING online savings
- Emergency Fund
_ Cut back on thoughtless/impulse spending
_ Eliminate half our debts (not including mortgage)
Write, read and share more
_ Monthly freelance article(s)
_ 2-3 blog posts per week
Take a class (or classes)
Grow Diaper Parties business
_ One party per month
_ One expo per year
_ Monthly guest posting for promotion
_Get tattoo (with ING savings!)
_Do more activities with the family
_Limit soda to one a week
_Walk more (especially with J)
_Laugh more, love more, be present, be authentic 🙂
I’m sure I’ll come back to add, delete and move things around. But, it’s a start. I don’t resolve to do everything at once and I don’t even know if I’ll accomplish everything that I “want” because life always has different plans that come up.
My number one goal for myself in 2011 is NO MORE EXCUSES for not living and enjoying the life that I currently have. No more what ifs only what is…
Do you have any resolutions or goals for yourself? Why did you decide on your resolution/goal? How do you plan on accomplishing it/them?
