With the start of a new
year day comes new opportunities. I am determined to make today, and the days ahead some of the best. In order to do this, I have set goals for myself.
Make trust and forgiveness my default mode.
This is something I struggle with. I have always been a person who will forgive (with time), but never completely trust again. Once that trust is gone, I have no interest in allowing it to grow again. I want to get to a place in life where trusting and forgiving come easier and more naturally to me.
Adopt Makeout 2014
Christine from Pink So Foxy did an inventory of her make-up collection and discovered she had FAR more than needed. As a result of this she made a contract for herself (Makeout 2013) allowing her to purchase 10 new "pieces" of make-up during the entire 2013 year. Make-up is my weakness. I love it. I find a product I "just have to have" and buy it only to find a new product I "just have to have" not long after purchasing the previous product. During 2014 I will be doing Makeout 2014 and allowing myself to purchase just 10 new "pieces" of make-up. This includes foundations (after mine is gone) and brushes.
Be more organized.
I am in the process of organizing my life... Starting with my bathroom vanity and linen closet. I am getting rid of a lot of "stuff", so it's time to organize what's staying here.
I recently bought these drawers (found here and here) for my bathroom to organize my make-up and assess what all I truly have (see also: Makeout 2014).
Other areas or organization include my bills (I bought all the components for Nina's Bill Book, but never put it together), clothes (so many things I don't wear, but can't seem to part with), closets in guest rooms, and garage. Good thing I have a year.
Run the Fort For Fitness Half Marathon again... and PR.
So there they are... my big goals for the coming months. What goals do you have?
