It’s funny how many things I planned to get done this summer. I always look to summer as my time of new beginnings. Yeah, I know New Year, Clean Slate and all that. But, Y’all, I’m a bus driver. My year starts in August and ends in May. June and July are just BONUS months. Every year I plan to use these months to totally transform every part of my existence that isn’t working for me. *sigh* Sometimes that’s a tall order. I mean I’m gonna clean my house until it looks like a museum, lose enough weight to be a super model, sell enough Tupperware to be queen of Direct Sales. I’m gonna do it all. Oh, and take care of my family and throw parties. Whew, all in two months I’m going to get ‘er . . . well you know. 🙂
So don’t get me wrong, plans are great but they do have to be realistic. I mean how much weight can I really lose in two months healthfully? I can probably do about 20 pounds and that’s if I’m good ALL the time. (I’m not good all the time) Would I like to become the Queen of Direct Sales? Yeah. Can that happen in two months? I can get pretty darn close. I’m not gonna lie with that one, it can be done. What else? Oh yeah, Is my house going to get clean enough to sell tickets? No, I have two teenagers at home this summer with me. I can, however, clean it enough so if someone were to drop in or I wanted to host my own Tupperware party I could do it without wanting to crawl under my bed. (Really, don’t look under my bed)
I guess what I’m trying to say is . . . don’t let your plans derail your progress. Does that make sense? Set a goal and take tiny baby steps to work towards that goal and see where you are in the end. If you focus on how far you have to go it may freak you out and you’ll stop. DON’T stop. Lose weight one day (one meal) at a time. Clean house one room at a time. Take your throne one party at a time. It’s a process and it takes work but it can be done.
WE CAN DO THIS!
