Oh January. 1/12 of the new year has already passed, but I feel like I’m already making significant progress on changing my life, and I couldn’t be happier! Here’s how the month shaped up:
- Read 6 books
Check! I’m rather pleased with this result after last month’s failures.
A Crimson Warning on 12/31
Stumbling on Happiness on 1/2
Murder in the Marais on 1/5
Murder in Belleville on 1/15
Pictures at an Exhibition on 1/18
Heat Rises on 1/22
America’s Hidden History on 1/28
- Pay off one of my credit cards
Check!!!! Soooo happy I was able to knock out my Bank of America card, first on my financial priorities list, when I sent the last payment on 1/24.
- Throw out 20 things
Check! I got rid of 20 different things as of 1/31
- Keep a gratitude journal for the month (to get started on my 2012 goals)
Check! Somehow I managed to write down my gratitude every day for 30 days. Change is coming
- Put money into my Roth IRA
Check! $200 in the retirement account this month. Not a lot but certainly better than nothing. Now that I don’t have a 401(k) that gets put in automatically, I think I’ll need to step this up.
How has your new year started? Did you make any progress on some major goals for the year?
