With the coming of the new year its time to reflect on the past year and set some goals - or good intentions - for 2014 (I don't like the word resolution....it makes me feel so inadequate if I fail to follow through). Over the years I have learned not to set myself to lofty of goals as something always comes along in life that supersedes them....so this year my "good intentions" are simple, but attainable.
- I intend to post regularly to my blog....it may not always be art work but I will try to post something at least 3 times a week.....quite a challenge for me. However, I have a plan that involves actually taking a lunch hour at work and using it for something other than playing Suduko on my tablet! Stay tuned for regular updates and accountability projects.
- I intend to renew and refresh my business. What direction I go is yet to be determined, but I have to do something. I have been with Close To My Heart 9 years today and it seems a shame to let that go, so I shall keep that in place in some form or fashion as I work on a more profitable direction for the business.
- I intend to move to a newer, more energy efficient home this year. Each winter I say this as I sit wrapped up in two blankets with the fireplace going and still have a $500 electric bill, but this is the year I will do something about it. Both of my kids will be living on their own so I can look for a place to suit my needs with less to move and put away!
- I intend to maintain my 35 lb. weight loss - especially through the first 3 1/2 months of the year....this means I will have to cook at home and go to the gym regularly.....ugh!!
And that's it for this year....4 easily attainable goals. Wish me luck and stick around to see how I do.
