Lets try that again...
Don't you just love the beginning of the year? So much possibility, so much potential. If you failed to reach your goals, it's like you have a fresh start to try again. One of my resolutions (although I don't like that word) is to be more organized. I am tired of being pulled in many directions. For Christmas, I received a whiteboard, and a large wall calendar. The whiteboard is on my fridge, where I write what needs to be done, and cross it off when complete.
I plan to begin to read a chapter of a book called 'Simple Abundance' by
Sarah Ban Breathnach. I remember starting this book many years ago when I first bought it and got 3 months in before laziness set in. I am already a few days late, but that is ok. I will start tonight.
Another habit I let slide was writing every evening in my gratitude journal. I have several books I have filled over the years, but the last couple of years I just stopped. It's not like I didn't feel gratitude, I mentally gave thanks during the day and before bed, I just stopped writing it in the book. Tonight I will promise myself to get back on track. Baby steps, that's all...
Art journaling is another discipline I would like to try. I am inspired by many artists who are taking the challenge to do a journal page a day. I cannot commit to this, but I can certainly try one page a week. I even signed up for class with Paulette Insall.
All of this is with the hopes of becoming more authentic, and having the best year ever.
What are you committing to for 2009?
