This year I'm behind making my resolutions. With everything going on I have found it difficult to truly look forward. Although according to everyone I should be looking to the future with a optimistic eye. I really want to be that person who lets it go and looks to the future with nothing but bliss. I just know this year is going to be tough. I'll be getting a divorce and I'll be living in transition.
I like being married. I'm the type who wants to be married. I want a family. I want a husband and partner. Not having that has been difficult. I'm not only mourning being with my husband but I'm also mourning my marriage and all the hopes and dreams I had for us. Wow! Have I brought y'all down enough?
Making resolutions is going to be my first step toward moving forward and admitting I just might have a bright future ahead after all.
So here it goes:
1. Put back a $100 each month
No explanation needed. I have never been able to save money so I hope this year shows more promise. Financially I need to start preparing for a new future.
2. Become more fashionable and put together.
As my marriage crumbled so did my appearance. The last thing I've cared about is what I looked like. I'm going to work on that by taking more time to dress myself, do my hair (and not just throw it into a messy bun), and actually wearing make-up to work.
3. Work on focusing on one task at a time.
I'm a major multi-tasker. I am constantly working on more than one thing at a time. Rarely do I finish one thing before I am starting something else. It's a really bad habit of mine. I'm really bad at it when it comes to work stuff. I need to slow down and focus. Even right now I am watching a show, texting, and writing a post.
4. Write a daily to do list and keep it manageable.
I'm bad about writing a to do list and then leave it to never look at it again. I need to start writing one and focusing on the tasks. I also don't need to write down more things than I can handle in a day. I need to write daily, weekly, and monthly to do lists.
5. Keep my car clean.
My car is a hot mess. I'm talking awful. It looks like I live in my car. What I do know is that my life is much easier to manage when my car is clean and organized. Since moving out of my house I have all kinds of random stuff in my car. I literally even have a storage shelf in my trunk. I need to give it a good cleaning and start fresh.
Five resolutions seem good and solid. I'm happy with them. How awesome will it be to come back next year to write out my resolutions and be able to say I did all of them for 2015?
