This Girls’ New Year’s Resolutions

What is a resolution?  A resolution is a goal that is set at the beginning of the year – not a wish, a goal.  The point of this goal is to attain it before the the new year arrives.  So, you want to make your New Year’s Resolutions attainable by making them small enough to actually accomplish in a one year time span.  And then break them down into steps of how you can achieve them.  Another great step is to start with your smallest goal and accomplish that one first, so that you build up a “snow ball effect” momentum which will help push you in a positive way towards achieving the rest!

So… want to see this girls’ New Year’s Resolutions?!  In the true spirit of “putting myself out there” for the purpose of pushing you all farther, through this blog, I will share mine with you.  This is not an ‘edited for public’ list… these are my actual New Year’s Resolutions.

For each resolution I have written on this sheet of paper, I have the also broken down into HOW exactly I plan on attaining them.  For example: 3. Drink 8 glasses of water/day – Keep water bottle with me, filled at all times so that I always have water with me to drink.

Another thought – have you ever thought about outsourcing or asking for others’ help in achieving your New Years’ Resolutions or goals?  This is why so many people purchase gym memberships after making their resolutions.  The downside to that theory is that there is no accountability… no one to make sure you go!  There’s a new movie in theaters right now called “New Year’s Eve” in which a lady named Ingrid (Michelle Pfeiffer) gets a courier boy (Zac Effron) to accomplish her entire list off New Year’s Resolutions for her in 24 hours… since she hadn’t been able to do them on her own.  This is of course a movie-version, yet still a great example that you don’t have to go at it alone!  You can ask friends for help.  Or even hire or outsource it out to have it ensured done for you, like Ingrid did.  Either way, accountability (telling someone, and having them check on progress) is a great help to ensure your success!

However you go about it… I wish you good luck!!    You are all now my instant accountability partners.  I have just shared with you a list of things that I WILL accomplish in 2012.

Happy NEW YEAR’S!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...
