Tuesday is the usual start to my work week, thus making TODAY my first attempt at achieving something in the New Year :) HOWEVER, I couldn’t really go and get started without typing down my 2015 intentions.
Now, I’ve always disliked resolutions. SO, for the past few years, I’ve been EXTRA careful to only use the word = goals. Well, that didn’t work out great either :( I know a word doesn’t have that much power over me, but when I look back at my 2013 AND 2014 “goals” and see the BIG items I didn’t accomplish . . . I. Get. Frustrated. As a result, I’m switching up my noun-age for the next 365 days and using intentions for 2015.Why? Because I INTEND to get stuff done. So much so, my 2015 to-do’s are going to be bit MORE specific:
– Read for thirty minutes each day.
– Get out of the house for a social engagement [at least] once a week.
– Complete one functional art piece each month.
– Launch the Homebird Upholstery website by April 1st.
– Be less hard on myself.
– Stay musical.
My list isn’t very long, BUT I have a tendency to believe that I am Super Woman and that there ARE more than 24 hours in a day. Yes, I might be insane ;) that’s why I am trying to be on the side of concise. I mean I’ve been wanting to create a Homebird Upholstery website since December 2012. [Good grief, Jenna!] It’s just that I get distracted VERY easily. I guess it’s a good thing I’ve discovered that about myself, right?! I honestly feel like my mind is running in a million different directions at certain moments. In my attempt to change this year, I even purchased one of Whitney English’s Day Designers in hopes that I can be more frugal in my list making and keep myself balanced. I need to learn that “less is more” in my day-to-day activities.
“One must never be either content with, or impatient with, oneself.”

Given these points, I AM curious, though – am I alone in feeling like this? I would love to hear if YOU run into any of these obstacles too. We can be CRAZY together. Lol. Happy New Year! And let’s take 2015 by the horns.
