I read Elsie's blog 'A Beautiful Mess' on a daily basis. At first when I saw her 4 simple goals post I didn't think much about it. As the week has wore on I have found myself thinking more and more about things I want to do and equally important, things I might actually find time to do. I really tried to pick 4 realistic goals, simple enough that I will accomplish them.
1. Master an at home manicure/pedicure.
I love having my nails done, it makes me feel happy and put together and it's a little me time. I don't love paying crazy amounts for a manicure every week or fake nails. So I have been watching YouTube videos on manicures.
2. Take a creative writing class.
I have absolutely no reason to take this class other than I want to. I always enjoyed writing in school and I would love to do more of it.
3. Make dinner with my kids at least once a week.
Sweets went to a Montessori school for two years and Bug starts tomorrow. It's always amazing to see what the kids are capable of when they are given the opportunity. In a Montessori classroom the kids prepare their own snacks and practice a lot of simple 'practical living' works that teach coordination and responsibility. I don't think I've done the best job of encouraging my kids to do house things, simply because it's easier if I do it myself.
4. Yoga, once a week.
I really enjoyed doing yoga at the YMCA. Unfortunately I have no time to get there. I added a few yoga dvd's to my Netflix.
So there you have it. I think my goals should be easily accomplished if I can maintain some sort of focus (hard to come by these days). I did give myself a manicure today, and it's getting there
