The truth is that I've been in a rut. And it could have been the above, not mentioned reason, also sleeplessness, or anything else.
But I've found that the things that I want to change are actually the things or behaviors that have kept me in a rut. No more; this is MY YEAR!
First, I'm breaking up with Debt. He's a horrible friend. He lies all the time and totally backstabs me when I'm turned around. He's actually like one of those horrible boyfriends who says all the right things to manipulate me and then WHAM! I'm on my face because he's knocked me around. I'm done with Debt. He's bad.
We are on the cash envelop system. I believe it is the best way to move forward financially. I am trying to cut down my grocery budget by 30%. And once the bad guy, Debt, is gone, we're moving to the 3-6 months of expenses stage. I'm really excited about my financial goals. (And yes, Erik is way on board with me!)
Secondly, it's time I lose some weight. The baby is nearing one-year old and it's time. I will do this by eating better and somehow will find time to exercise. Since I've been eating healthier I've noticed significantly fewer mood swings. Dang it! I guess my diet does affect my moods and hormones!
Thirdly, I'm looking for work. I stumbled upon this site, RealWaysToEarnMoneyOnline.com and I'm very enthusiastic about finding some sort of online writing work.
Fourthly, I think knitting is cool and I've been trying to teach myself to do it for a couple of years. Well, I think this is the year for it!
Fifthly, I need to get my sewing machine fixed. I realize this may not seem like a goal worth listing, but since I will have to save cash for it, it is.
I'm believing that with posting my goals the Lord will give me strength and perseverance. And that if I do fail to meet all of my goals then it will be all for His Glory anyways! :)
