I always think of the new year as a chance for a fresh start. The bad habits and things I didn’t do well before… this is a chance to make improvements on all of them! I’m not one for new years resolutions. I don’t believe that you should just decide to improve one part of your life. Why not work on improving all of it?
For the new year, get a journal or a notebook. Begin by writing down all of the things you want to do better. Maybe it’s learn new recipes, do a better job at sticking to your cleaning schedule, or take better care of your husband. Your list can be two things or fifty things. It’s all up to you.
Once you’ve really looked at things and made your list, continue to journal about what you can do to make these improvements. Are you going to look up local cooking classes to improve your cooking skills? Are you going to take a sewing or a French class at the local college? Maybe you are going to start meditating or doing yoga to help you keep calm and patient. Be specific about what you plan on doing in order to make the improvements in your life.
Continue to journal throughout the year on your progress. It’s amazing, after a few months you can go back and read from the beginning and see what leaps and bounds you have made.
I wish you all a wonderful and improved 2015!
