Goal Setting

New Year Resolutions

When I was training as a hypnotherapist at Hogwarts I liked that NLP saying, “If you always do what you’ve always done, you always get what you’ve always got.” My hypnotherapy teacher used to say,
“Whatever you believe to be the truth, is the truth for you.”
1) Set Realistic Goals. I am always making myself lists and berating myself for not accomplishing everything. I began this blog by writing that our mission was to be boaters, travellers, writers and parents. Now I don’t know if it’s realistic to be all of these things, as well as a medical secretary, a hypnotherapist, a home-maker and a wife.

2) Enjoy my children, every day. Spend quality time together. Life is short.

3) Put some TLC into my marriage; recognise thoughtfulness, make time for each other, listen, and focus on the positives.

4) Get a bigger home, more storage space, a washing machine. Maybe a house.

5) Sell a freelance article. I’ve had articles published, but this year I am going to be paid for writing something! I have bought a book about it.

6) Finish writing one of the three books I’ve started writing.

7) Keep on top of the housework/ boat chores.

8) Settle in a community. Get some neighbours and a local pub.

9) Exercise – swimming or yoga?

10) Be more calm and confident – use self hypnosis more often!

11) Promote my blog. (The only thing I have done so far is a bit of Facebook and British Mummy Bloggers!)
12) Get a job related to writing – perhaps a secretary in a publishing company?

13) Long term goal – make writing my career.

I found out about this blog hop from read it and vote for her in the blogging awards!

Yes it's a long list. By the time I got to the end of it I had broken resolution number one! Ha ha! :-)
