It’s January again, a season of resolutions and goals and oh, who am I kidding? If we let it, January – with all its fresh starts and expectations – can be a season of stress, frustration and even disappointment.
I mean, who really follows through on their New Year’s plans?
Lose 25 pounds.
Floss every day.
Read 100 classic books this year.
Make crafts and cookies with my children every day.
Clean my house from top to bottom each week.
Never touch another piece of chocolate again!
Okay, so maybe you aren’t quite that unrealistic with your goals (I hope not!). But I just have to ask: What are you doing to make your goals for 2011 attainable?
When I sat down to make my list of goals for this year, I filled both sides of a piece of paper. And the margins. What can I say? I have a lot of room for improvement!
But looking at that list and thinking about the steps I’ll need to take to meet each one is so overwhelming!
