11 ThingsPosted: December 11, 2010
This is day 11 in the Reverb10 Project.
11 Things: What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life?
- More conflict with family – I’ve set boundaries and taken a step back to try to avoid more conflict in 2011.
- More big housing expenses like replacing the furnace and air conditioner – We knew these would go out soon, but we hoping to get a bit more life out of them. Anything else will be completely out of the blue, and I don’t know that we can avoid it.
- More procrastination on my sewing business – I need to make time each day to work on filling my etsy shop. I’ve had several custom orders now and know that I have a good product that people are willing to purchase.
- More middle of the night feedings – I’ve got to train this baby to sleep through the night since she is waking out of habit, not out of hunger.
- More yelling – I grew up in a house of yellers, so it is what comes naturally to me. I need to be more conscious of my reactions to things large and small.
- More swearing – I grew up in a house of swearers. I need to become more deliberate in my language.
- More “stuff” – I’ve become more aware of my accumulation over the last year, and I need to continue to limit what I bring into the house.
- More weight – I’ve had to work hard at losing this baby weight, much harder than ten years ago with baby #1. I need to continue to limit snacks, eat healthy and begin exercising.
- More TV and internet time – If I watched less TV I’d get a lot more done. I’m usually on the internet while I’m watching TV. I don’t spend nearly as much time on the computer if I’m not on the couch, so perhaps finding a spot for the computer on a counter kills two birds with one stone.
- More drama from volunteer positions – One volunteer position I served on for a couple of years was particularly fraught with unnecessary drama. I’ve left the position, so this resolved itself easily.
- More….not sure. I could only think of 1o!
Getting rid of the above will allow me to live a more peaceful, meaningful and deliberate life. I’ll also be able to move forward with goals I’ve set for myself.
I need to keep this list handy to refer to it.
