In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

New Years Themes

I’m enjoying the slower pace of life right now. Spending much needed time with family. I’ve decided to focus on themes rather than resolutions for this year. Life is so variable that having specific goals seem more like a source of stress. I’d rather focus on themes and have areas to focus on and see where life leads. For this year, I want to focus on organization, fitness, and social.

  • Organization—-I want to be able to find what I need and have things I love taken care of.  I want my home to reflect my personality and be better able to support my lifestyle and interests.
  • Fitness—-I’m happy with my weight, but I miss where I was athletically and where I think I can be.   I’ve fallen out of the habit of exercising and notice the impact it’s had on my mood.
  • Social—-I want to strengthen the relationships that I value and create new ones.  Life is busy, but I want to find ways to connect with people in a more meaningful way.

I have read some quotes on blogs that have stuck with me over the past few weeks.  Unfortunately, I don’t recall off the top of my head the blogs or the exact quotes.  “Compare yourself to where you were yesterday”  It’s easy to focus on how I’m doing based on where I want to be,  other people’s progress, or in the remote past.  It’s a nice reminder to take baby steps and value progress no matter how small.

The other quote was related to getting tasks done right away rather than waiting.  It’s easy to think oh I’ll have an opportunity to do that later and then later life gets in the way.

Enjoy the end of 2012!
