This year, I'm keeping it simple when it comes to goals for the new year. It's a lot of work to be better in every way in only a year. I mean, com'on, big changes in every domain of your life...in only 365 days? Very difficult to accomplish. I don't mean to be a negative Nancy here, just trying to be realistic.
I have plenty of things I want to accomplish in the new year including taking a trip outside Washington, completing a juice cleanse, reading more, and Netflix-ing less. But the one goal I'm going to put on the front burner and really focus on is to be more organized. It's gonna happen. I even bolded, italicized and underlined the word "organized" for goodness sake. That means it's a serious goal.
It's gotten a bit out of hand. I feel like certain areas of the house (my room in particular) experiences tiny explosions about every three days that I am constantly recovering from. I clean up, get kinda organized and then in three days the space is back to mini-disaster status.
My plan is to first get my room under control. I need to donate things I don't wear, throw away things I don't use, and organize things I want to keep. This will mean investing in some bins, shelves, hooks and other organizing gadgets. Then, the kitchen, living room and my car. Yikes. this could take a while.
