2011 Goals, Part 1

I think it is about time for me to revisit some goals I made for 2011 and to make some new ones! In the last few weeks I have really been working on bettering myself emotionally, physically, spiritually, and just all around in general! Here are my current goals, in no particular order!

1. To wear earrings daily. I know, this seems really random. But I have had 2 holes in each ear for over 20 years now and I have probably actually worn earrings a total of 1 year of that time. I always love seeing cute earrings but I just never put them on myself.

2. To accessorize more. I have been anti necklaces since Owen was born. When he was a baby he would pull and yank on my necklaces so I just stopped wearing them at all. However, I have so many cute ones and I want to use them to accessorize more. I also have some really cute rings, belts, etc.

3. To do my hair and makeup at least 3 times a week. Baby steps.  I have fallen into the mommy rut of climbing out of bed, caring for the child, and neglecting my appearance. Well NO MORE! I need to make a huge effort to look nice. Along with this I need to change out of my PJ's daily. Sometimes I just think it is easier and more comfortable to stay in leggings and a tank top. However I always feel so much better about myself when I get some cute clothes on!!!!

4. To get on a better sleep schedule. I often seem to get either WAY too much sleep, or significantly not enough sleep. Case in point- it is currently 120am and I am still working on stuff. Last week though I was going to bed by 830 (I had a bad cold) and getting almost 11 hours of sleep. I need to make a commitment to get into bed between 10-11 each night.

5. To be present. So many times I feel like I am doing too many things at once, neglecting to be present in the moment I am in. I need to be more present with Owen- playing on the floor with him, teaching him, and not worrying about anything else. I also need to be more present when interacting with John. I often have so many things floating through my head, questions i remember i need to ask him, or things I need to do in order to truly live in the moment with the love of my life! 

I have so many other goals that I will post shortly. Baby Steps Amy. Baby Steps!
