My New Year - things I want to do, but don't want to call "resolutions"
My 2013 New Years..... things I want to do but don't want to call "resolutions"
You know, the word "resolution" sounds a bit... sad to me some how. Using it makes me feel like I was a failure somehow in the previous year... and I don't think that is really true :). Having moved my husband and I out to the "country", started our antique business, started this blog, and much more, I feel I accomplished a lot... but what do I want to do in 2013.... well let me think...
I'd like to increase our family by 1 (need hubby's help on this one :))
To increase sales at our Antique Booth
To lose some weight
To get my craft room set up and beautifully
To grow my blog
To try a slue of new recipes
To have a whole year of loving what I do and doing what I love
To learn something new
To teach something to someone
To read at least 3 books
To bid and win on at least ONE storage unit at a storage auction
To be a better couponer
To craft, craft, craft
To do some volunteer work
Now, if I try to tell myself, that is a complete list, I will be kidding myself! But what's the harm in adding things later?
I think I have two items on that list that are the utmost important to me.... actually, let's not joke... I KNOW this!
Loving what I do is a big one.... I spent years and years working because I need money, instead of working on something I love, and making money while I do it. So this year, I am going to do whatever it takes to do what I love and love what I do, because I refuse to spend another year, not.
And of course, the "increasing our family by one" is HUGE. Let's call it what it is people, it's my biological clock ticking ticking ticking. When I see a baby, I want it. Luckily when I joke that I am going to take it, my FRIENDS laugh and usually offer for me to TAKE it, for at least one night! Ha! (I am not dumb enough to make this joke to a stranger - they might be scared! :)
So these two are at the top of the list... but all are important... and I think I'll start now....
Have a wonderful, happy and healthy New Year... and all year.
