I don't make New Year's Resolutions, but I use the new year to reflect on accomplishments from the past year & developing points for the upcoming year. So far this year has started well. I jumped in running with the head start I got in December. I vowed to do a few things:
- Schedule my time. I've got all sorts of little pieces that are supposed to fit into the puzzle. I wasn't doing a good job of getting them to all fit. I've learned to say no a bit more. I've blocked off the time I can't control; work, kid's homework, dinner, etc. And filled in what I can; workouts, weekly dates with the hubby & time to work on updating the shop. I've got to say, I feel good!
- I've taken control of our dinner menu. We were tired of just having whatever & not whatever was healthy. I'm planning dinner & the shopping list on a weekly basis.
|My Grateful Journal - A new daily exercise. Just fun pens in a fun journal. I don't want to complicate it quite yet & make it an art journaling project.|
- I am getting the jewelry business up off the ground. I have been stuck behind the hump the last few years & am determined to make it work. (I love you Tim Gunn!) I get some great news & some momentum, but I can't continue riding the wave. I'd like to become more disciplined & focused with my work. I'm taking another class with Alyson Stanfield, Blast Off, & I've been reading her book when ever I have a spare second - I don't read books unless they are craft books or magazines - & I can't put it down.
