Get Your Crap Together

Get Your Crap Together Molly

Man, I need to get my crap together. I know that I have got to get back into a routine to make things happen! It never fails – moms, I know you feel me – that your kids start school and things go well. Then comes Thanksgiving break, things are off for a week, but as soon as you get back, Christmas break hits. Kids home, husband home, everyone is home. No routine as you have to get them all taken care of and fit all your crap into things also. New Year hits, you take a couple weeks to get back into it – Spring break arrives. Crap. Now to really just muster through and get back to routine in about three weeks for school to let out. Crap again. Now to create a whole new routine that caters to kids all the time and work and everything else.

Get it together I tell myself plenty of times.

I honestly am beginning to think that me trying to make everything fit into my schedule is what is creating these issues. God is laughing at me for trying to do it all my way. He is telling me to calm myself, look upward and rely on Him.  I just wish that He could just help me out and maybe put it on my Google calendar, or even pencil it into my Erin Condren planner. It would be great – right?

Too bad, so sad…it doesn’t work like that.

I am going to continue to plan, but I will do it in pencil. I know this will frustrate me a lot, but I know that I can do nothing but say “Yes Lord” and keep moving. Let us not get so uptight about things that we cannot see that there is a divine purpose in it all.

Rest easy friends – I feel you.

January Is Here…Again.

January is here…again and you are going to need to dip deep to plan for success this year. Crazy, isn’t it? It seems like it was just January 2016. Time flies and I have no clue where it went since I think everyone can agree that it really wasn’t a fantastic one. I can’t say that it was bad, as I know I had some really great time with my husband, kiddos, and friends. I just know that there were some nagging things that hung around and were more of like an annoyance when they decided to pop up. I know it happens and I know it will probably happen again this year. The thing that will change about it, is that I am going to bless it and release it. My dear friend Dana told me that phrase and I really am going to embrace it!

I am taking today to really seek my goals at the core. We all have nice general ideas of what we want…I want to lose 10 pounds….I want to eat better…I want to read more….and those are all great things! I believe when we want to make these things a success, we really need to look at them and find out what it will really take to make them happen and be successful! You need to dig deep. What exercises, days, and time are you going to do such activity? What are you going to cut out and add to you diet? Do you h ave recipes? What books are you going to read? I really think you need to dig deeper than just creating an idea of what you want.

I know for me today will involve a pencil, my planner, and the internet helping me make sure I am fully prepared to take off with a huge possibility of success. I want to really put my best foot forward. Today, my planning day, took a huge step by getting up and getting my husband prepared for work and showering. I think that when you get up and put yourself together you are going to be more successful than if you sit around in PJ’s. Not saying I don’t love hanging out in my PJ’s, I just know that I can start my day off with action.

What are your goals/resolutions/changes, that you want to make this year?   I have a few and I will be revealing them as I go this year. I can’t wait to share this journey with you!

December Goals 2016

12-2016December  goal time is here! I feel like I have very simple ones, yet in my head, I have broken them down a whole lot more to give them some depth. I like to make simple things really complicated sometimes.

Exercise – 30 minutes or 3 miles, at least 3 times a week.  I need to really get some fo this weight off and get into a better mood. I know that exercise is really the only thing that is guaranteed to help me!

Devotion & Prayer – I have to get into a better routine of this. I know this is needed in my everyday life as it grounds me. Reminds me  what really matters. Plus, it is part of my daily habits that I do most every morning.  I have 5 things that I need to do every morning to keep my mornings sane! Are you in need of myTop 5 Secret Tips to a Peaceful Morning? Drop your email in  the comments and I will get it out to you right away! You won’t regret it, as it was a game changer for my sanity!

January Content – I want to have my content calendar for January fully written out, and quite possibly scheduled!

Read 2 Books – I don’t even care what they are. I want to get in the habit of reading more so that I am watching less crap TV. I love me some Bravo, Hallmark, and Lifetime, but I sure could be more productive with my time.

Plan Q1 – I need to focus my first quarter of 2017. I need to figure out some scaleable business streams to really get me off and running. I don’t care how big they are to start, I just know that I need to get them started so I can out myself on the path to better setting myself up for lofty goals I have written for next year.

These are my plans, now what are yours? To be clear, I also probably won’t start these until Monday. I like to start things on Mondays, and it is my birthday. How better than to start off a new year of my life than with goals in mind?
