Seriously, we could all do with some more healthy – no? The older we get the more obvious it becomes that we can’t treat our bodies the same as we did when we were younger and expect to feel… well, human.
I know I don’t sleep enough, and my diet is terrible. I FEEL like my diet is terrible. This is big on my list of things to address this year… not just for myself, but for my family too.

Make Your House a Home
If you can’t come in and sit down in a clean, relaxing space at the end of a long day at work – there’s something wrong. If you (like me,) have to move a pile of tiny socks and pjs off your couch before you can put your feet up, there is a problem. I KNOW not having laundry on my couch would change things for me. My house would feel… free-er.
It’s frustrating that the only person that can make this happen for me is me.
This is the year to DO that. Maybe you want to:
finally, conquer the clutterorganize your closet/ paperwork/ trouble spotmake better use of your timeget the laundry under controlstart meal planningmake use of a cleaning scheduleteach the kids to help around the houseget a decent bedtime routine going (for kids or for you!)get the fridge/ pantry/ bathroom cabinet under controlgo chemical-free
Get Your Finances In Order
We want to buy a slightly bigger house in the near future.
Sometimes it feels like we’re doing ok in the saving department, but when I really step back and look at what we spend, I know we can do better. There are big holes all over our budget.
You too? Maybe this is the year to:
deal with your debtleave the job you hatestart a savings account & save regularlystart investingget life insuranceincrease your incomebreak your shopping habitlearn to budgetsave enough to take a holiday/ buy a carlearn to use credit cards properly
Live On Purpose
When we look back at life, there isn’t a whole lot that we spend our time on that will really matter.
This is a terrifying thought to me, and one that spurs me on to consider new year’s resolutions like these:
read your bible regularlymake time for friendsimprove your marriagemake family time a prioritystart a hobby that you enjoyget happy in your skinaddress your mental hang-upsbreak your worst habitvolunteer your timelearn a totally new skillgive up busymake a new friendget out of bad relationshipstravelbecome a published authorstart a familybuy a homebecome a better personlearn to prioritizelearn to be content
