Just Checking In


Hey!  We’re halfway through January.  How are you doing on those New Year’s resolutions?  Are you using the bucket strategy?  I am, and so far it’s working.  I’m even doing a bit better in other areas as well, but I can feel the temptation to allow things to slip.  If you’re still hanging in there, way to go!!  But if you have abandoned your goals, it’s not too late to get back on track.


What causes us to sometimes give up or lose sight of our goals?  Could it possibly be we just don’t want them bad enough, or do we get distracted by something else that gives us temporary satisfaction?  Care to share your experiences or observations?

    I didnt make a new year’s resolution because I never follow through with it. My plate is often running over and I am trying to make time for the people and things that really matter to me, because otherwise there is no point in working as hard as I do.

      While you didn’t make an official New Year’s resolution, it sounds like you have made a conscious decision and goal of making time for the people and things that really matter, and that’s a good thing. You do, indeed, work so very hard, but I admire the way you make time for your children, family and friends, too. ((hugs))
