I know a lot of you are getting back into the swing of things after vacation and much needed time off. I’m back after what seemed like a very long December that had my mind on so many other things. So so sorry for my absence.
Like a lot of you, I am feeling optimistic and hopeful for a great year ahead. I’m not so anxious to do my yearly goal list though (PS: I like the word goal instead of resolution-but that’s just me). I dug up the one from last year– hidden in the junk drawer of the kitchen and was really surprised to find that I had nailed many of the goals I set out last January. Go me. So with that enthusiasm and in the spirit of getting shit done, I give you some of the things on my list.
Work out more and eat better foods.
Yes I know, everyone has this one on their lists and by February this starts fading fast. I get it. I really want to get this one going and keep in going. I had been doing this during the summer and was feeling pretty damn fantastic. But then my bad habits started creeping in and one bad habit lead to another and another and now I’m fluffy again and I hate it.
Put away stuff after I use it.
This is a major flaw of mine. I tend to leave things out and then do one large cleanup. No bueno. I’m sure this new goal will help me stay organized too (another goal of mine).
Watch less TV and read more.
Easy swap no? I just have to be conscious of it and I’m sure this will happen fairly quickly. That’s the thing about changing habits. I firmly believe you have to keep yourself aware of the bad habit, so it can be changed.
Play more with the dogs.
Too often the family dog gets neglected when new additions (like babies) arrive. While it’s not gotten to the point of forgetting to feed them or leaving them outside in the cold, we do need to play with them more. They are a part of the family too after all.
Clearly, this was one thing I failed at in 2014. I’m gonna need to blog at night and post the next day. I find it easier and more efficient than trying to get it done in the morning while feeding the baby and doing chores.
Don’t compare my journey to someone else’s. (This is a big one for me)
Comparison is the thief of joy (Theodore Roosevelt said that). And it’s so true. I am pretty sure if I am mindful of this every day, I will be more sane and lead a happier life.
Ok so there are some of the biggies. These are so many others but they are more personal in nature and need not be explored on this here blog.
So Buttercups what are some of your goals?
I hope all of you had a beautiful holiday season and are ready for this new year!
