Well, I may be a day late, but so far, I'm not a dollar short! At first I wasn't going to make a New Year's "resolution", mainly because I can never keep it, mainly because I make unrealistic resolutions, like climbing Mt. Everest, stuff like that [lol, not really, but really that unrealistic, in comparison]. I recently subscribed to an online website called "Mind/Body/Green", because I found myself going there almost daily to read some of the articles. One of the articles posted yesterday was about giving stuff away, clearing clutter, letting go, realizing what's important are NOT "things". It really hit home with me and I thought, that's it! I spend way to much money on stuff I really don't need. So the first thing I did this morning was write a big note that says "Everything I need, I already have." and I taped it to my computer monitor [since most of the shopping I do is on-line]. Before I hit that "add to cart" button next time, I'll be sure to read my note first. I also "unsubscribed" to any e-mails that tempt me to purchase things...beads, shoes, jewelry, cloths, etc. So, my "resolution" this year will be to see how long I can go before I buy something I really don't need...I'll keep you posted on my progress.
What resolutions have you ever made and kept? Do you have one you are starting for 2014? Let me know...we can encourage each other! Or, perhaps you can be encouraged by Frankie's daily affirmations...what I call "The Daily Turtle"
Hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season!!
