How to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions Last 2 steps!!!

Okay here are the last 2 step on how to make New Years resolutions…

3. Tell everyone you know. Some say that New Year's resolutions are best kept to oneself, but look at it this way: the more people to who you announce your resolution (say, to get more organized by spring), the more people will help remind you if you fall behind. There's no shame in seeking help if you can't accomplish your resolution on your own.

4. Reward yourself. Following through on a New Year's resolution is rarely easy, so a reward for doing your best never hurt…for example, maybe you can reward yourself with a new pair of shoes for organizing all your closets in your house. WHY NOT… THERE SHOULD BE ROOM!!!! RIGHT?????

I feel it is important to always set goals for your self. It shows that you always want to be a better person.

Homework: Write down at least 2 goals and tell someone you know. Have a great and organized weekend!!!


-Have more one on one with the kids.
-Have prayer every night with Justin.

How to Keep Your New Year's Resolutions

Well, I have missed writing in my blog…My sister from Utah came to visit, with her kids, and with Christmas my life got real hectic!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!! Mine was great but very busy!! I am excited to get back to my normal schedule, even if I do have to wake up at 5 am again!!

I remember every year in grade school, the first day back, all of my teachers would make us write our New Year’s resolutions down…WELL IT IS that time of year again to set some goals and make New Year’s resolutions.

Here are the 1st 2 tips on making New Year’s resolutions…

1. Aim low. It goes without saying that most New Year's resolutions are easier announced (or written) than done-but if you set the bar too high, you're doomed from the start. Instead of saying I am going to write in my blog daily, say I will at least write in it 2 times a week. That way you are not setting yourself up for failure!!!

2. Don't overload yourself. It's difficult enough for the average person to follow through on one New Year's resolution; why would you make a long list of 20!!! Pick 2 or 3 and really concentrate on those.

Come back on Friday for the last 2 tips!!!!
