Happy 2017

Another year is about here. What do you plan to do to make 2017 great? While so much is out of our control, so much is also in our control.

In 2016 I set a lot of ambitious goals for myself. I accomplished one of them and learned quite a bit about the other goals. I definitely made some good progress. Tackling a lot at once really reminded me to take things a step at a time and not overwhelm myself to get things done.

I plan on taking that mindset into 2017. Whether you want to lose weight, get out of debt, find a new job, enhance a skill, go back to school…. just remember to take things a day at a time and be realistic. The more realistic you are, the more realistic achieving the goal will truly be.

2016 taught us a lot. It was good, bad and ugly. 2017 will bring its own set of challenges, here’s to getting through them.

Happy new year everyone!

Here’s to a new year

2012 was a great year. A stressful one, but a good one. It also set me up for a busy 2013.

We have to sell our house, move, some small things in between there, plan a wedding, finish losing weight, have my wedding and some travel here and there.

There’s a lot there to do. I’d feel better and excited about the move if the house sold. I’d feel better about the wedding if I felt like I had a better grasp on what I need to do. I have a pretty good idea, but I’m sure there are things I’m missing and that’s what I’m worried about.

And I have this ongoing fear of pestering people with my wedding. I care too much.

Come September, I’ll have time to relax. It’ll be a long road, but a great one! This’ll be a year to remember.

Here’s to a great 2013!
