DO MORE WITH LESS...
In a quest to pay down debt, to lose weight, to feel better about myself, I've found that I can do more in life with less.
Less over eating.
All of these mean...
More money for savings / paying off debt etc.
More room in my pants, healthier body / mind / soul.
More time to get down to the things in life that are true, real and not materialistic.
More time to help others, not just myself.
DO MORE WITH LESS...
Means clearing out my closet, ridding my home of items I don't want, need or have a use for. Taking these items to the Salvation Army, to help others. Donating them to different charities to help others. Items left that have a bit of value, I plan to sell on Craigslist or in a yard sale. Money to go toward paying down debt.
This year I want to down size. Hold on to what is important to me, purge what isn't.
Mike and I live in a great house, but I'll be honest there is one room that we literally are using as a storage area. Most items in that room are in two stacks. Wedding Gifts (Keep) and Donation items (purge). Throughout our home we have items that some might be LOVES, some might be items we just bought for the hell of it.
In an effort to eventually purchase a home, and start our lives be it with parenthood and beyond our first step is getting all our finances in order. And frankly, get our shit in order. This will be a perfect beginning to that task.
So yes, I want to lose weight, who doesn't? Yes I want to incorporate a healthy lifestyle into my current non-healthy one. Yes I want to cut down my clutter and get my crap in order - but if I start listing those specifics I'll be upset by the time I say Happy Valentine's Day because I'm stuffing my face with dessert and my favorite jeans don't fit anymore.
Instead... I'm doing less with more. Buying less, hoarding less, giving more and taking more time away from just thinking of ME, ME, ME!
So tell me, what is your goal for 2013?
In other news tonight is the big night for my boys the Alabama Crimson Tide. BCS National Championship against the Fighting Irish if Notre Dame! I know it's going to be a great game. I am rooting for my boys but I know it will be a hard fought battle between the two! May the best team win and ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!
