New Year 2014

At the start of each New Year, it’s pretty common for folks to make resolutions:  losing weight, starting better eating habits, going back to school, etc.  Unfortunately most resolutions are null and void before the month of January is even over.

I’ve been thinking about what I wanted to do this year, what did I want to accomplish?  The more I thought about it, the more I remembered all of the things I was supposed to do in previous years.  I think this year I’m going to focus on Completion.  Finishing up some of the things that I’ve started.  I’ll admit, I’ve had a bad habit of starting a project, slacking off and then starting something else.

First on the list is school.  I won’t say how long I’ve been working on a graduate degree, but it’s time I finish.

Next up, all those unfinished home projects.  My basement looks like a war zone/ catch-all for all the junk items we haven’t bothered to actually store away properly.  Well it needs to be turned into a real family room.

My pitiful basement

I just saw the power mitre saw that was purchased umpteen years ago because I wanted crown molding in the dining room – and I was sure that I could do it myself (watching too much DIY Network).   Well it too needs to be put to use – to actually cut the molding for the dining room.

There are scores of other projects: the garage organization, the gardening, unfinished sewing, the unfinished knitting, and all of the DIY projects that I actually purchased the materials for.  This year it’s time to complete them.

While a diet is not on my list of things to complete, I could stand to start getting some exercise in.  Now if someone can tell me what home exercise routines I need to do to get my legs to look like Naomi Campbell’s I’d be eternally grateful.  LOL!  Seriously…

What are you looking to Complete this year?

      Happy New Year Kenya!
      Yeah I know, wishful thinking on the Naomi Campbell legs. LOL! I am determined to tie up these loose ends. I think I will have a better sense of accomplishment, and be a more positive example for my child. I don’t want to be one of those “do as I say, not as I do” parents.

    Naomi Campbell’s body is ridiculous. I need her workout plan, for real. On my list this year is to get my business off the ground.

      Yes, it truly is! Whatever she’s doing, I need to be doing it too. Starting a business is on my list too, but only after I’ve completed school. I’m determined to get that done!

      Ohh Faith, starting new things IS so much fun. In fact I’ve already came up with a few new things that I want to do, but I am DETERMINED! Those new things can’t begin until I’ve cleared out some of the old. Actually when I think about it that way, it makes me work that much faster so I can get to them. 🙂
