What to do???

I decided to start this blog because there are so many things I want to do in life and if I don't have goals set - they will never happen.  So this is a way to make me accountable - if I say on here that I'm going to do something I will have to follow through with it.  So I want to be serious when I do set a goal.  So many times I've said - I want to do this and that and that is where it stays - me saying it.  So that has to change.

My first goal is that I want to be organized in all aspects of my life - HUGE goal, but if I do that as my first goal it will make everything else easier.  I've come up with so many excuses on why I can't be organized:
     I'm too busy
     I know where everything is now
     I won't do it because my husband is bugging me to do it
     And on and on...you all know what I'm talking about.

I could so easily become a hermit crab...so I make myself join things - volunteering is a passion of mine, but being unorganized as I am it just makes my life even more out of control and I see why my husband gets so frustrated.  I make my life stressful, I truly do.  I don't get up early enough.  I stay up too late.  I don't put things away when I'm done with them.  I don't say "no" when I should.  I put things off to the last minute when I don't need to.  I'm really bad.   But I'm not hopeless - I'm setting a goal.

I can't put a time frame on my goal so much but I can for individual pieces of my goal.  I will get up a 1/2 hour earlier in the morning so that I can take the time to make my bed and begin to put away the mound of clothes that is on my dresser.  When I come home I will empty any bags that need emptying and put things away.  Before I go to bed I will make sure everything is put away that I used.  I will for a 1/2 hour every day/night clean an area.  I will take 1/2 hour every/day night to work on organizing.  There are many projects that I can work on whether it be work, crafts, or volunteering. 

Wow - I've put it to paper so I must do it.  I have a double agenda for this - this will get me moving and will help me with my weight loss also - yea, the best of both worlds.

Check back to see what journey I'm on next.
