Small Goals. . .
I am a goal oriented person big time! This is a good characteristic I think, but it can be bad if you're never satisfied with the present and always looking to the future. I find myself getting stuck in this way of thinking: Always planning for the future.
Next week I will be finished with school! I have two papers, one presentation, and a final test left to do and I will be finished with formal education for the time being! By nature I'm already making lists as to what I'm going to do with all of my free time! I have to admit I'm very excited to be able to plan my evenings with projects that I want to do.
I have lists made for cleaning and organizing my bedroom and laundry room. I have a huge list for Thanksgiving! Joe and I are hosting Thanksgiving and planning for a spectacular celebration with family and friends. I also want to make a list of winter projects I'd like to try. My DIY board on Pinterest is full of great projects I've been waiting to try. I feel it's important to start with a small list of simple projects and focus on one new skill to learn; I have a problem with planning way too much at one time. Small goals will help me stick to a schedule and feel accomplished; something school did for me. Small goals will also help keep my mind busy but enjoy the present.
Here is my list of small DIY projects I want to accomplish this winter.
