Living Your Best Life

Not Tomorrow – TODAY!

It seems like 2018 just rolled into 2019, but last week, I turned the calendar over to August.

For years as a student, and then as a teacher, I considered August the beginning of a new year. New school clothes, a hair cut, new teachers (or students), new classes, and a grade older. After 49 years of August “new”ness, I still feel that August brings with it a new year. I even bought six new spiral notebooks this weekend for my “THE ONE” notebook. Hopefully, that lasts me for the year.

The older I get, the more I am learning that I need to stop procrastinating and wasting time. “I’ll get to it tomorrow” or “I’ll get to it someday” just isn’t in the calendar anymore.

So, as I take stock of what I did and did not accomplish in the past year, I am looking at what my goals will be for “this” year.

MY GOALS (because “someday” NEVER comes)

  • declutter room by room
  • sell things that I haven’t used or missed in the past four years, but that I moved to Tennessee with me because I “might” need them “someday.”
  • take a complete household inventory
  • exercise my creativity – in other words, get to the re-purposing of cigar boxes and Altoid tins; making statues from the collection of glass I have; creating jewelry from old silverware

What goals will you set for “this” year?
