I have always been a person to make lists. I love crossing off the list, the things that I have completed. This usually pertains to a "to do list" for the house chores but I have used lists for other things too.
In my journal (diary) whatever one calls it these days. I have a section where I have made lists for each new year of things I want to accomplish. Better known as resolutions. I recently read back over the past few years and was surprised that I was able to cross some of those things off my list. Like, reading a book, learn to ice skate, learn how to shoot a gun, get rid of some unnecessary stressors*(they were specific) Many, many things I was able to achieve.
There was a #1 on every page of my resolutions. I haven't been able to cross that one off. This year is a New Year and I have never been so motivated and so excited about changing old habits and exercise.
This is my first attempt at the positivity challenge and the thing I have learn looking back over the past resolutions is I CAN accomplish things. And I can accomplish this goal too.
Then thing I love the most each week is going to the edit section of my page and erasing the previous weeks weigh in and replacing it with a smaller number...and then the simple act of hitting the 'save changes' button gives me great satisfaction. I intend to *save changes* weekly.
Have a fantastic day everyone!
