New Year's Resolutions???

Well, honestly I'm not making any. I think when you put New Year's in front of Resolutions you might as write FAIL!!! I am though a big believer in goals! I make them all year long. I have big goals such as getting the basement completely organized and clean and small goals like getting an A on a test. It keeps me focused on the task at hand. You should always have long term and short term goals. I also don't beat myself up if my goals are not accomplished. Life gets in the way and sometimes it has another plan for you and the goal is just not one of them. So my goals right now are both big and small. Some goals I'm working now are long term and big such as becoming a nurse. Some are small term and small goals such as getting the house completely organized before the next semester starts. I don't want to waste this valuable time I have off of school. I have a full load of classes next semester which will not give me the time to do much with my home except general cleaning.

So this year nix the New Year's Resolutions and just make goals! Goals you know that you can handle and that you won't be disappointed if they are not fulfilled.

Have a wonderful New Year's. Stay safe and please if you are going out and drinking have a designated driver!!

Blessing for the New Year,

I'm not a resolution maker... I don't think I believe in them AT all! I usually do my changes in pre new years doses... somehow they feel more attainable. It's like starting a diet on Wednesday instead of Sunday. You know?
