Here we go again. It’s a new year. Week one is in the books and everybody starts off with the best of intentions. How many of us started off the year with a resolution? I didn’t make a list of resolutions. I went the Kanye West route and decided to “be great”. I figured that covered all aspects of my life and what I’d like to accomplish.
Most people, even if they don’t make resolutions, set a goal or make some promises for changes in the new year. We do it every year. The thing is, if we don’t follow that up with a plan of action, those goals and promises are just words.
I don’t know about you but since becoming a mom I have been even more determined when it comes to things I want to accomplish. I’ve heard from people about what they can’t do because they are a mom and I was determined not to become that person. I am convinced that my dreams don’t have to stop because I have children. My dreams have changed for sure and some of them have taken longer to accomplish but they are STILL possible.
So, in an effort to be more than words I’ve taken it a step further and started taking action. I’m linked up with my sister from another mister, Amber to talk out all of our plans and goals and keep each other accountable. The plan is to meet on a regular basis to chart our course.
It feels good to talk out my goals and have new perspective and things that maybe I haven’t thought about that could take my dreams to the next level. It feels good to provide that same encouragement and support for someone else. Of course the challenge will be to keep it going beyond the first few months of 2013.
Have you taken steps for a plan of action to keep yourself on track and motivated?
