We're here once again. Thinking ahead to the new year and personal goals. What if anything did you do to change the way you do things to achieve your personal goals, (*if you follow this thread you'll know I have virtually stopped using the word resolutions) I now only use personal goals not because it gives me an "out", just to make it feel somewhat more achievable. I make simple lists of two to three items that are achievable and then when the three things are done I will write down another 3 things list.
This helps me. How about you? And what's on your list?
My first thing is: to clean out two of my kitchen cabinets that while I was baking for the Christmas holiday, i could not find my baking pan until I literally rummaged the cabinet through! I have over time ridiculously shoved things in the cabinet making my life cluttered and it is unnecessary as I have places for the things. So I will correct this immediately first thing.

Hi Mary, your idea of just having 3 things on a list is great as it's a lovely feeling to be able to cross off a whole list of accomplishments before having to consider the next 3. Talking 'tea', I continue my hunt for a decaffeinated tea that tastes great without milk or sugar. Happy New Year! Joy
Happy New Year to you too! I used to overwhelm myself and then feeling very unaccomplished, my list would evaporate into thin air. This way I feel a true sense of accomplishment, even if it is just 3 very small things.
Oh, this was so me! I would feel very bogged down by things, now I try to eliminate the stress by completing only a few things at a time. I try to have one very important thing and then 2 less important but "fun" things on my list, like cleaning something small, (i.e. junkdrawer, or craft room organization) this way I AM actually getting things done, while not stressing over it.
I'm about to embark on my spring/summer walking fitness program. I start out slow and definitely pick up the pace and within the month's time, I have fluffed off the winter's hibernation. What/How are your fitness goals? Are you pushing beyond and how do you cool down?
As soon as it gets warm and dry enough after I have done my morning walk, I love and really enjoy sitting on the patio listening to all the sounds and enjoying a cool iced tea.
Happy Spring...Happy summer to be and Happy goals for you and me! Mary Caliendo Tea Editor
