In an earlier blog post I discussed New Years resolutions. I just don’t understand why life changing decisions can only be made one day out of the year. Whatever day that a choice is made and plans put into action, that is the best day.
With that in mind I have put some plans in place to make some life changing decisions of my own. The first change was to start this blog. I had another blog years ago and maybe I didn’t take it as seriously as I should have at the time. I have put more time and thought into this one and even though it might not show now, I hope to make this site a success.
The next thing is to expand my social media presence. I have plans to branch into YouTube and Periscope and already have a presence on Instagram and Twitter. I have also started an eBay page to sell some of the home sewn crafts that I have made and hope to get more made soon.
I also want to expand my life-coaching and Officiant businesses. I have begun looking into people in my area who might have the same goals I do, maybe we could help each other succeed. No highly successful person got there alone, someone had to help along the way. I would also like to do some public speaking which might make some of you laugh. Those who know me know I would rather vomit than stand up in front of a group of people. But how will we ever succeed in life if we don’t face those things which scare us the most? How can I tell my daughter to go against her fears if I am not willing to do the same?
The other change coming is to get healthier. I want to lose some weight, feel better and live happier and longer. That will be a huge part of my YouTube experience because I really need the accountability. I need to know that other people will know when I succeed and when I fail. I know I will fail from time to time but hope there are more good days than bad.
So just how am I going to put these things into action? First I need to become more disciplined with my time and scheduling. I need to make plans, write them down and don’t let anything or anyone interfere. I am too quick to tell people I can help out without thought to the fact that I had something already planned. My plans were less than important than others’.
I need to learn as much as I can about the things that I want to do. I need to learn video editing and production, writing clear and concise content and hone my sewing skills. I need to practice my public speaking. I need to get my name out there.
I need to plot out set time to go to the gym. Luckily my husband’s job provides me with access to a free fitness facility. I just need to take advantage of that. I have already started eating better. The holidays make it so hard to stay disciplined with all of the sweets and fatty foods just about everywhere that you go. It is too easy to nibble every moment of the day and calories just don’t seem to count like they do the rest of the year.
So let’s do this together. Email me or send me a comment if you need some accountability just like me. Let’s start some conversations with ideas to help each other reach our individual goals. Keep an eye out for the info on my YouTube channel. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter. We can make 2018 successful if we all work together. Anyone want to join me?
