My dad used to scuba dive. I remember this one time when I was about 8 years old we went to Catalina with one of my dad’s friends so that they could go scuba diving. For some reason they were doing an early morning dive. We were up at the crack of dawn and had to get all their scuba gear down the docks. We had taken a boat over the island and didn’t have a car so as the sun peeked over the horizon we loaded up a wagon and walked down to the pier.
No big deal right? Should have a been a smooth ride, a moment to take in the morning air and gaze at the beautiful sunrise. Except that the walk was cobblestone streets the whole way. So the wagon didn’t roll smoothly. It bounced. Loudly! Those cobblestone streets announced our early morning plans to the whole place. I still remember it.
That’s pretty much how my December went. December is supposed to be a time where you reflect on the year, spend time with family, and basically regroup. Instead we bounced along never really finding a groove. With my husband sick all month and a pointless school schedule I really don’t know how I got anything accomplished at all. To say it didn’t go smoothly would be an understatement.
Which means that I didn’t really have much time to do my reflecting and planning. It’s my favorite time of year and I almost missed it!
But never fear! I’m a bit late but I do have my goals set for you! Each year, I set three New Years Resolutions. One financial, one personal development, and something I’ve been putting off.
- Earn an additional $1,500 per month (all of which will be paid towards debt)
- Believe in myself more (easier said than done but I’m going to put real effort into it this year)
- Do a better job of keeping track of my business expenses. (UGG.. I’m embarrassed to admit they got away from this year. All my talk and this is what I do. Terrible!)
I’d love to hear yours! Please share in the comments!
