I have never been into writing New Years resolutions. I think it's because I never really feel motivated in the middle of winter. In January we are just coming off the Holiday high, then it's our anniversary, then before you know it January's over. February always flies by and that leaves you two months behind on your resolutions. So instead of being bugged and disappointed for the rest of the year on broken resolutions I do things a little different. I can't remember where I first heard the idea but a few years ago I started my March 4th/Forth resolutions. Every March 4th I march forth with my resolutions.
(Do you like my hand model?)
So some of my resolutions this year are:
- I will write a Thank You note to someone once a month. I got this idea from my dad who would always randomly have a Thank You letter in the mail for someone. I always wondered how they understood what he was writing to them. My dad has a very cryptic handwriting. You would think he was a doctor!
- I am going to start my to-do/scheduling list again. Before and while I was dating Drew I was very meticulous about writing everything down. And was obsessed with to-do lists and my planner just ask my friends. You just get more done that way. Then I got into a funk where I just didn't do it, and wasn't me! Well I'm finally breaking out of that, and I'm going to be on top of things again.
- I am going to write at least one thing daily that I am thankful for.
- I am signing up for a community education class to get me out of my comfort zone!
These aren't all of my goals to March Forth to a better me, but you get the idea.
So to get started yesterday I walked to a stationary store and bought some thank you cards. I love these green ones, thank goodness there's always something to be thankful for. How true is that?
I have started up on my to-do lists already I am ready to March Forth!
