WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR THE NEW YEAR?
Now that it is 2015, everyone is making new resolutions. As for me, I am going to keep it simple. 2014 was a rough one, but it ended VERY well. We finally sold our home, found one that we love and got an excellent deal on, and I became a grandma for the first time. Can't get much better than that!
Usually you hear of people wanting to lose a bunch of weight, or maybe they want to quite smoking or something like that. Some want to get more organized...there are a ton of things that people set goals to do.
Many of these goals are great, but usually by the end of the first two weeks, most have forgotten about them, or failed, and then just give up.
I don't want to be one of those who give up after a few weeks, so I have given my New Years Resolution some thought. Yes, I need to loose weight, no, I do not smoke, but I do bight my nails...I could quit that. As far as getting organized, well, I will be moving into a new home in a few weeks, so, that is pretty much a given...something I HAVE to do...so that probably does not count.
So, what have I come up with? I plan to be the best me I can be. I want to be the best wife, best mom, and best grandma. I want to be the best sister, and friend. So, what I need to do is look for opportunities to serve, opportunities to listen, just to be there for people sometimes is enough. There are so many out there that just need someone that will listen. I need to have a smile on my face more, and to weed out negativity in my life.
You know what? I am probably going to fail, but that is ok, I need to just pick myself back up, and start again.
So, good luck to all of you who are setting new goals for the new year. Don't give up. If you fail, then try again.
Here's to all of us improving ourselves!
