A Few of my Favorite Things

Getting Organized and New Years Resolutions

I always get so sad when Christmas is over. Packing up the decorations and the switch back to regular music on the radio always slightly depresses me.
So it's a REALLY good thing I love getting organized because it's something to look forward to in the New Year!

To get my started, I pulled out a few of my favorite things:

I've got my personalized Erin Condren Life Planner, Erin Condren What To Buy/What to Eat Snap in Dashboard and Stickers, Gilmore Girls Pencils, All Out of Grocery List and of course COFFEE!

Once I got organized, I jotted down a few goals and resolutions for myself for the year, Here's what I came up with:

1.) Be a Happier, Healthier Me:
     I could definitely set a goal of going to the gym at least 3 times a week, lose 10 lbs or eat only healthy food, but lets be realistic, that's not going to stick.  Sometimes I need to binge on a bowl of pasta or a pint of ice cream, and you know what, that's okay! I am not going to feel bad for indulging on my favorite foods here and there.  What I can do is make conscious decisions to balance those splurges out with healthier foods and some cardio!

2.) Spend more quality time with Christopher and Hallie:
     I definitely need to work on setting down the phone and spending QUALITY time with my family.  What I mean by this is helping Hallie with a puzzle instead of scrolling through facebook while she plays; or spend time chatting with Christopher when he gets home from work instead of turning on the TV.  I am really hoping to strengthen our relationships this year!

3.) Figure out my dreams (AND MAKE THEM HAPPEN): 
     Last year I totally thought I knew where God was leading me, and then a HUGE curveball was thrown at me and I was left figuring things out. I do know that I really enjoy having an outlet for my creativity and I really enjoyed working in social media. I just need to find the right alley! I have a lot of balls in the air and getting much closer to figuring things out, so I am hoping that this year will be a year of revolutions for me!

What are your resolutions? How do you get organized?

  1. Love your EC planner!! Best way to start the year! I'm working on similar goals this year. Aiming to work out 5 hours / week to feel better (and hopefully get those endorphins going!) and really focus on my relationships. My word for 2017 is deliberate. :)
