I have been so busy with work the last thirty days that I really have not thought about the parts of my life that needs improving until the last couple of days of 2015.
I wrote down a couple resolutions that I know I want to make a difference in my life for this new year. But when I make these resolutions I have to think about how it will affect the people who in are now in my life and make room for new people to come in my life as well.
So here goes, my top four for the new year of 2016.
Number one – Stop shopping and use the stockpile.
As most of you know I am an extreme coupon user. I try to get everything for free, half price or less and for the most part less. I have a nice stockpile and yes everything is in date and not expired. But I want to use as much as I can and not buy because I will be canning my own food more than before.
I will most certainly have to change the way I think about shopping for food, house and body supplies, that is the challenge.
Number two – Start a new business.
A couple years ago I made this same resolution but it was different then , I wanted a new career and I wanted someone else doing all the book keeping and the insurance stuff. This year I am starting a new business, No I have never done anything like this but if I don`t try, I will not know if I can make it or not. Since I am good at growing and I am a born sales lady, how can I go wrong?!
Number three- Replace the old with new.
This resolution is a multi one. I know I will have no choice but to replace my old car with a new one sooner than later, it has over 300,000 miles.Replace my old wardrobe with a new one, slowly not all at once. I also want to replace old thoughts with new thoughts. It seems I do not give myself enough credit for the abilities I possess. No second thoughts and just do it. That is how I need to be.
Number Four – Be more selfish.
As most women know, sometimes, no most of the time, I neglect myself to help others. I over work. I do not tend to my appearance as I want. I neglect my healthy eating habits to accommodate what others want to eat. I want to be a little more selfish, think of me before anyone else. Make plans for travel that I want and not just go as the driver. That type of selfishness.
Well that is my yearly four. I make two that I am sure I can accomplish and two that will be hard. Can you pick which is which?
