New Year New Word

I have never been one to make New Year’s resolutions because I always see them as a set-up for failure.  Resolutions can be so specific that one wrong move derails your goal.  I recently saw on the By the Lakeside podcast, that Sandy was choosing a word that she can incorporate into her daily life as a gentle reminder of her goal.  I really like the idea of having an overall theme for the year.  I have been using this technique since the beginning of the year and so far it is working for me.  My word is focus.  I get very distracted because I want to do everything and then nothing gets done.  I have been sitting down and making a schedule for myself and this also includes planning out dinners.  Since I have started my small yarn business on Etsy, I feel like I haven’t been able to fully focus on it and it is definitely something that is important to me.  I’m a stay-at-home mom now, I look around the house and see all of the things that need to be done.  Again I get distracted.  I’ve now scheduled time for the house, running errands, and my business while the kids are at school.  Once the kids are home I focus on them because I’ve gotten the chores done that needed to get done.  This has been really working out for me so far because I thrive on routine.  I hope your goals for the new year are also going well.  Now back to work!
