So excited for this New Year. I chose as my one little word – ACCOMPLISH. I chose this word because I have so much I want to accomplish this year. And I know that I will only be able to ACCOMPLISH these little goals one day at a time. One day at a time for 28 days makes it a habit, so it’s said. The first is small and maybe silly to some but I am enjoying it – making my bed. Today is DAY 4 of making my bed before I leave for the office. Two things – my Mom used to say, “Make your bed, the whole room looks cleaner.” I agree. The other – there is nothing like climbing into a made bed. I was gifted a bottle of grapefruit scented sheet spray – it’s light, heavenly.
My main project for January is this little sack that was chosen by a Mommy-to-be. There is no excuse that I cannot find thirty minutes a day to crochet at least four-six rows or more.
Another thirty minutes is all I need to MOVE each day. I choose walking and I love and have used (with much success) Leslie Sansone’s walking tapes. So, I know that even though its dark and cold by 6:00 p.m., I can still walk a mile in my living room.
That last little goal (to become habit) is to save money. I am shooting for $100.00 this first month (that of course will depend on what breaks around here). Our office moved in the middle of December to the middle of town – ON my bus line. Last year, I weighed taking the bus vs. driving and parking and I felt that cutting the traveling time was more important. However, I do not feel that I made valuable use of the time saved so it was a no win situation. This year, I have bought bus tickets, an overall savings of $60.00 plus gas over the wharf, and $20.00 plus gas (plus a 15 min. walk (but that’d be exercise) over Station Square. I’ll gain the exercise bonus back when the days stay lighter longer by getting off 2 miles from my house and walking the rest of the way.
So, that’s it. My four little changes which I hope to ACCOMPLISH and instill as routine habit.
