January Goals

I like the idea of New Years resolutions, but month-to-month goals definitely work better for me. However, I do have a sweeping arc of a resolution for 2015, and that is to try and be more positive and make a BIG attempt to worry less. It’s funny, my niece and I were talking the other day and we’re both complete worry warts. I’m not sure if this is a Scorpio thing or not, but we’re both plagued by concerns that almost never pan out. So this year, I’m going to make a conscious effort to cut that out. My life resolutions are, as always, to be a better and healthier person. Now back to the monthly stuff. Here’s how I did with December’s goals

– sort out/upgrade my health insurance coverage
– get rid of some of the cat stuff that pepsi never uses
– clear out the boxes near the kitchen
– have the front verge landscaped
– fill out the council form to have a tree planted on our verge in april 2015
– do ALL of the christmas shopping
– plan new years eve

December was a crazy-busy time for me, and aiming this high was my first mistake. I was busier than usual at work, and we all know what the holiday period is like – one social event after the other. So I’m not going to be too hard on myself for not getting more things ticked off my list. I’ll have a little bit more free time in January, so I’ll see how I go.

– finish the latest book club book and plan a meeting
– take unwanted/read books and magazines to give to friends
– sort out/upgrade my health insurance coverage (I absolutely WILL get this done in 2015)
– clear out the boxes near the kitchen
– follow up on the front verge landscaping
– fill out the council form to have a tree planted on our verge in april 2015
– plan a little weekend getaway for the end of the month
– send my interstate BFF a birthday card/gift
