I knew that I would not be ready to start any new goals over a weekend that followed celebrating New Year's Eve, so I resolved to start working toward my goals on January 5th, which is when my older daughter goes back to school and we get back into the "normal" routine. So far, my goals are more ideas than solid goals with action steps. I want to eat healthier foods, work on paying down debt, keep a cleaner house, and of course continue to work on building up my Etsy shop.
One thing I'm hoping to offer more of in my shop in the coming year is more chainmail items that my husband has made. These have been really popular, especially at the craft fair we did in December. I have one of his chainmail keychains on my keyring, although mine is a straight line rather than a celtic star. I asked him to make it for me to "test" to see if the rings would hold up to being taken in and out of my purse, pocket, dangled from the ignition of the car, etc. Yeah, I was just wanting to "test" it, that's it. ;) I've had it for several months now and it has held up quite well. I really like it.
So, now that we are 4 days into the New Year, what kind of resolutions have you made? Have any of them already been broken? ;) If so, I hope you don't throw in the towel, one of the things about goals is they are something to work toward, not something you flip a switch and have perfectly. There will likely be bumps on the way, but as long as you don't let them stop you, you can still reach your goal.
