Goal Setting

One of the biggest things I am learning about myself is that I like to bite off more than I can chew. All of the time. I sign up for online classes and then don't finish because I am overwhelmed. 2014 is the year I am going to change this.  I have bought myself an organiser, DH tells me to use my Ipad but he doesn't understand the joy of using a book and being able to open it easily and, not to mention, decorate it.

My main goal is to have the courage to live my life happily. No more sitting around feeling sorry for myself.

In my organiser I write a daily personal to-do list, no housework. So a typical day might look like this -
  • study
  • exercise
  • One Little Word
  • blog
  • Psychologist visit/meditation
My daily goal is to get through as much of this list as I can.  My long term goals are more along the lines of -

  • eat better
  • sort cupboards
  • travel
I have found that not having goals and just floating through life get me personally nowhere fast.

Do you set goals for yourself?

Yes, I am still here


Sorry for the break but life has been crazy busy around here. DH has had a job change. DD is back into the full swing of Uni and work and long distance relationships. DS has been busy with work, Year 11, gym and driving lessons. As for me - I have started studying for my Diploma in Early Childhood Education.  Big changes for us.

DH and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary this year and we have been looking at an overseas trip. Nothing fancy as our budget will be tight, but we have discovered that it is cheaper to head overseas than holiday here in Australia. Crazy. I am having fun doing lots of research and checking out destinations. DH has traveled overseas for work but I have only been to New Zealand 23 years ago eek!

I discovered a new blog called Love Happy Daily and Sunday is running a blog challenge for May.  The challenge is to blog every day and Sunday has supplied a list of daily prompts. So I am going to give it a good attempt. blog-every-day-may is the link if you are interested.

I will be back tomorrow with another post.
