Today I am reading Courtney Carver’s book that launched yesterday morning. I’m also looking into a new food plan, continuing on our minimalization journey, working on my 333, doing laundry and I just signed up for a Simple Year. In addition, we are visiting with family who flew in for Christmas, planning our visit with my husband’s father, I’m considering packing the rest of the house all while sipping on my last few days of flavored-creamed coffee before its totally black and munching on a cookie that will be on the NO list after the first of the year.
To say I am busy is an understatement, to say I’m also reading three additional books along with Mrs. Carver’s is pure insanity. I’m doing everything and nothing (my husband’s favorite phrase) eloquently. Also the first time I attempted to spell the last word of the last sentence, Grammarly warned it was an unknown word. Typing perfectly is not my strong suit, maybe I will take that up in the latter part of 2018.
Why do I do everything at once? This way? It’s because I am easily bored and self-deprecating. I need to achieve something in the next year and if I have started a lot of things, surely I will do one of them well. Also, I need to go back to work after the vacation too so I can focus. I do not have the type of personality that you can leave unchecked. I will subscribe to everything given the chance, and jump on every bandwagon as it pulls up. I have always been this way. That is why when I finally cleaned out my craft room it was embarrassing. There is no way I would ever be able to complete every project I had invested in over the years. Most of them were left half started.
So the end of the year is approaching, and the calendar itself is in pretty good shape but its reuse would leave us a bit challenged. The next one from my husband’s work has arrived in the mail and will replace the old one along with all the projects and goals that didn’t make the cut. We partially tackled minimalism and made a sizeable dent in the items we own. We lost some weight and we upgraded our big house to a more manageable tiny one. Those three alone were big accomplishments and we are still adapting to them. We couldn’t have accomplished them alone, so it was great to have support. I myself am grateful my husband did not question my sanity when I approached him with tiny living and minimalism.
This year digitalized instruction and media for my (our) goals makes more sense, due to our home size. I have a phone, a tablet, and a computer, I will never run out of devices unless we lose electricity for a while. I look forward to what the new year brings for the new life we have planned and my own personal goals. It will be amazing and a day for celebration if they all make the end of the year cut in 2018. It’s highly unlikely that will happen, but I am a believer in miracles so we will see.
Whatever life improvement projects your New Year brings, I wish you the very best at tackling them and best wishes for the changes ahead.
