Last year was pretty rough and the new year doesn’t seem to be treating me much better so far. I have decided to go about my goals in a gentler, kinder manner this year, with the overall focus being on simplifying all aspects of my life.
I need to accept that I can’t change the past and I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. I will focus on each day and find the blessings within it.
I have a very small family and I feel like I haven’t done enough to show how important they are to me. I will spend more time with them beyond birthdays, holidays, etc.
I will focus on my marriage this year. It has taken a beating the last couple of years. My husband is my partner and should have input in all significant decisions. We will start traveling again.
Unclutter my life.
I will let go of the past. I will let go of broken relationships. I will get rid of material clutter.
I will read personal finance, blogging & leadership resources. I will continue to blog. I hope to attend Fincon 2013.
I will eat real food. I will try new things. I will eat slower.
I will walk and bike along the beautiful parkway I live on. I will walk my dog.
I am doing another no spend challenge. This time I will try not to buy any new clothes from Jan. through March, with the exception of undergarments. I’d love to make it through the year, adding other categories along the way.
Use automatic methods to save with 401k (s), Impulsesave & Roth IRA(s). I am also participating in the 52-week savings challenge.
