And now that I have declared my Goals for 2015 I want to write my goals for January. Doesn't it feel like a new start every year when January comes? A new lease on life? A new chance for change? Sorry, sometimes I even make myself a little sick when I start to sound so philosophical. That just seems where I find myself lately. Maybe it is the change my life is taking. Anyhow!
1. ATTITUDE...Always a good place to start!
A. Use scent...to me there is nothing like a good smell to boost my attitude in a new direction. Some of my favorites are: vanilla, baking bread, citrus, lavender. In January I am going to start my day EVERYDAY with a new scent in my Scentsy burner.
B. Relive a memory...Thinking about a good memory puts me in a good mood. EVERYDAY in January I will start my day with a good memory. I have many, many. And through Throwback Thursdays I can share them with you.
C. Music...we all know how a good, up-beat song with boost our mood. EVERYDAY in January I will start the day off with a good upbeat song!
D. Laughter...How can you be in a bad mood or have a negative attitude if you are laughing? EVERYDAY in January I will search for something to laugh about. Maybe I will even find a way to share my laughs with you.
E. Let it out....I am not naive enough to believe that a bad attitude or a negative thought will still not find a way to sneak into my life. I am a SINGLE grandma raising teenagers for goodness sake. I have lived with a negative attitude most of my adult life. I am a person who usually sees the cup as half empty. So, in the month of January, EVERYDAY whenever I feel that bad mood coming on I am going to sing, yell, dance, punch a pillow or just scream. Let it go!
(And since I wrote this, my health care premiums went up $110 a month so I might have to incorporate E. pretty quickly)
