Happy New Year!
Every year on this day I make my list of New Year Resolutions. I would venture to say I manage roughly a 50% success rate. A million years ago when I was back in school, that would have been an F, but as a much WISER adult I can look at 50% with a glass half full mentality. Adults are busy with careers and kids and aging parents and Netflix, it’s hard to achieve 100% on anything!
2015 was no different. 50% it was, but that 50% was GREAT! It included, open a new store (CHECK), take 2 vacations with the family (one included some work stuff, but basically, YES), open an online store (DONE), teach dad how to use a laptop (it’s getting there), do more outside things when it’s cold (walking to and from heated car and into Target doesn’t count I know)… Honestly, I set some lofty goals and am proud of my accomplishments. “Eat better, excercise and read more actual books” are always throwing off my % and if I take those off of the list, I would be much closer to a 100% success rate.
SO in 2016, I’m not going to put on my list to eat better, excerise and read more books, because I should be doing those things anyway and a nagging phone reminder alarm isn’t going to make me do them, it’s just going to make me wish I remembered what setting it was in my phone to shut off that alarm. Instead, I’m going to repeat 2015 and put on my list: Open a new store (I know, it’s crazy!), take 2 vacations with the family (with less work involved), teach dad (this is a continuous process) how to use his new laptop, take more photos of things other than furniture (the dining room set above by th way is in room 4 in Batavia and it’s very pretty) and do more outside things when it’s cold (like when it’s 40-50 and not windy out). I’m going to add “write in blog”, because I’ve had that on previous lists and I’m just not consistent.
I am also going to try and always be supportive of others and to listen better. So I hope you are proud of your accomplishments too, I know I am proud of you and if you would like to talk about your 2016 New Year Resolutions, I would love to hear about them! 🙂
Happy 2016 everyone! I wish you great health, happiness & a prosperous new year!
