I always get so sad when Christmas is over. Packing up the decorations and the switch back to regular music on the radio always slightly depresses me.
So it’s a REALLY good thing I love getting organized because it’s something to look forward to in the New Year!
To get my started, I pulled out a few of my favorite things:
I’ve got my personalized Erin Condren Life Planner, Erin Condren What To Buy/What to Eat Snap in Dashboard and Stickers, Gilmore Girls Pencils, All Out of Grocery List and of course COFFEE!
Once I got organized, I jotted down a few goals and resolutions for myself for the year, Here’s what I came up with:
1.) Be a Happier, Healthier Me:
I could definitely set a goal of going to the gym at least 3 times a week, lose 10 lbs or eat only healthy food, but lets be realistic, that’s not going to stick. Sometimes I need to binge on a bowl of pasta or a pint of ice cream, and you know what, that’s okay! I am not going to feel bad for indulging on my favorite foods here and there. What I can do is make conscious decisions to balance those splurges out with healthier foods and some cardio!
2.) Spend more quality time with Christopher and Hallie:
I definitely need to work on setting down the phone and spending QUALITY time with my family. What I mean by this is helping Hallie with a puzzle instead of scrolling through facebook while she plays; or spend time chatting with Christopher when he gets home from work instead of turning on the TV. I am really hoping to strengthen our relationships this year!
3.) Figure out my dreams (AND MAKE THEM HAPPEN):
Last year I totally thought I knew where God was leading me, and then a HUGE curveball was thrown at me and I was left figuring things out. I do know that I really enjoy having an outlet for my creativity and I really enjoyed working in social media. I just need to find the right alley! I have a lot of balls in the air and getting much closer to figuring things out, so I am hoping that this year will be a year of revolutions for me!
What are your resolutions? How do you get organized?
