I spent a lot of last year saying, "I should do this..." or "I should do that..." And then I never did it.
I didn't make plans to make it happen. I didn't follow through. I just didn't.
I meant well. I had every intention of doing said things. But I suppose those things weren't that important to me. I didn't make them a priority.
And then, guess what? They. Never. Happened. And then I complained about them NOT HAPPENING!
I mean...what did I expect? That they would just magically happen all on their own? That I'd wake up one day and the things I wanted to get done were done?
It would be nice if this would happen, but nope, that's not how life works. Unfortunately.
Now, don't get me wrong. I accomplished a lot last year. Our family accomplished a lot last year. But I let some of the small things slide. Some of the things I've wanted to do, and knew they would make a difference for me if I did them.
I didn't really give it a thought until I was going through my 2020 calendar...this is something I do every year to review everything I've done the previous year. And I realized it's a brand new year. A brand new start.
And yes, I know I don't need a new year to start something new. But why not now? Now is the PERFECT time to start!
So this year, I'm focusing on follow through. But not just on anything. I'm going to ensure I have my priorities straight. I'm going to have my list of goals, my list of things I want to accomplish, big and small, and I'm going to make sure I follow through.
More important, though, I want to ensure I'm not taking on too much. I want this to be the year where I learn to do LESS better.
I've always been one to take on too much. To say yes when I really don't have the time or when I don't really want to say yes.
Well...no more. Not this year.
So here's to 2021. Where I prioritize my to do list. Where I say no if it's not a Hell Yes. Where I do what I say I'm going to do. Where I follow through.
What about you? What are your plans for 2021?
Have a beautiful week! And Happy First Week of the New Year!
With love and wellness,
