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.
