Once More Into the Fray

Happy new year! And so we begin...
I've made some goals for the year and I'm very excited about accomplishing them, but I would be lying if I said I was not afraid of failing. I've made the goal to lose weight many, many times and not had lasting success. So, why do I continue to put it at the top of my goal list? Is it habit? Is it an unexamined tic that I need to revisit? Why do I do it? I'm 56 years old and I'm at my heaviest weight so one might say that by continuing to focus on my weight, I am attracting more weight to me!

Hmm, I don't know about that, but I know it is, again, my number one goal. To lose 52 pounds in the year 2020. I genuinely believe this is the year I'm going to make that happen. I look forward to sharing the why, the how, challenges, the successes right here on my dear old blog. By the way, I'm five pounds down so I'm off to a good start.

Other goals include refinancing our home so we can finally do away with the mortgage payment insurance! Pete and I also want to pay off our credit card debt which is hovering around the $10K area.

Another big one for me, personally, is to earn at least $1,200 via Tender Arts Studio. The "how" of this is unknown to me yet, but I know that blogging has to be part of the equation. I imagine my etsy shop will play a good size role and my sister-in-law and I are signing up for a May craft show. I see this income as coming from many different sources, but mostly I see at as me finally getting serious about my creative business. It and the weight loss are the two accomplishments I want the most and I cannot see why I shouldn't be able to do these things.

I am reading Marie Forleo's "Everything is Figureoutable" and it has been a great read thus far. I've gleaned some important truths that I believe are already transforming what I believe about myself and my capabilities.

So much to share! I am looking forward to this year and I am committed to being BRAVE in my pursuit of the things I want. I plan to record monthly updates here on the blog about my progress with these goals.
