I see my birthday and the time surrounding it as a personal New Year, a time to reflect and celebrate on my past years. Since the New Year consists of New Year's Resolutions, I have listed them as follows:
1. Be Healthier: this means healthy eating habits and working out consistently even when I don't feel like it. It means making and keeping regular dental and doctor appointments. And it means taking vitamin supplements regularly.
2. Get Organized- I am often looking for things, which often contributes to making me late or near late for events in my busy work week. I have many things in my home that I don't use or need. I want to get rid of these things and only live with what I love and need. Then, I want those things to all have a place.
3. Save and Make More $$$- I am making a short term plan which includes smarter shopping, budgeting better, and a PT job. My long term goal is to go back to school if only part time very soon. Ideally, I would like to go by next year. After reading a post from blogger , brunsli it gave me the boost I needed to rethink going back to school. I am presently researching MBA, JD, MSW, MHA, and PHD (Forensic Psychology)programs. I am interested in a career in service to people as I am a nurturer naturally, but I need to know specifically what that is. I need to decide how I can pay for my education and what to do with my house if I can not work full time or sell my house as I can't afford to take a loss in today's terrible selling market. Thoughts?
4.Stop Procrastinating- You may delay, but time will not. ~Benjamin Franklin. I plan to do too much tomorrow. This is evident as I am writing about last week as we speak. I f you have tips that are really helpful to you, I would love to incorporate them into my life. The key theme seems to be creating routines...
5. Be More Beautiful- Though shedding pounds will help, I also want to see a dermatologists and create a beauty routine. As it stands, I sleep with my makeup on and don't wax/shave the way I should. I know TMI! My eyebrows can be unkempt, and I will still walk out of the house anyway. I don't want to become one of those women you see in the grocery store with baggy clothes on and rollers in their hair. I want to look as good as I can whenever possible. I know there have been a lot of missed opportunities. Being a single heterosexual woman, I have to realize that men are visual and look accordingly. Plus, I hate walking by the mirror and thinking what is going on today. Well, Sisterlocks definitely help with it because I always have perfect hair at least. But I know you readers know what I mean. There is always room for improvement.
