A New Year

One often thinks of a new year as a new start. When actually that isn't what it is at all, there are no new starts. Things can not and will not be forgotten from years past. Having said that....
I am NOT going to do new years resolutions.
I am going to set goals though... here are some:
* I'm going to make sure I do at least one "creative" thing each week. Hopefully more, but at least one time during the week I want to do something that I enjoy, whether it be making cards, scrapbooking, or just making something for the house. No matter who is upset that I am closed up in my scrapbook room ignoring them.
* I'm going to declutter my life more and make a conscious effort to buy less "stuff". I don't need all that I have and I sure do not need to buy MORE!
*Speaking of more stuff....I want to get out of debt. I want to sell a couple of more houses this year and pay off credit cards. (without charging them back up!!!) I can do this if the old explorer holds up!)
* I'm going to try harder to pick up after myself - I get on to Tyler all the time for the trails that he leaves behind when actually I leave them too. I let messes (of all sorts) get a bit too much before I clean them up and I need to stop that.
* I'm going to work on my physical and mental health, I'm going to do more for "me" and less for everyone else. If you are everyone else, I'm sorry.
* I'm going to practice forgiveness -

Great goals Lesa. Amazing how we as women are often so busy tending to everyone else, that we fail to take care of ourselves. What we need to realize is that taking care of ourselves allows us to better take care of everyone else.

Looking forward to keeping up with you through your new blog!
