New Year Everyone!
Everyone thinks of starting over at New Years. The New Year magically bring in a new beginning. It does not take January 1 to start over. Every morning we awake is a New Beginning.
Start every day positive. When we don't get enough sleep, we are not the best we can be. Go to bed on time and plan 8-10 hours of sleep. Set the alarm and Get Up! Turn off the alarm and get out of bed. It is that simple. Don't start your day thinking I don't want to. Read over your positive list and SMILE. You are alive and be happy.
I can remember when my adult children were little children. I had a 40 hr per week job, I had lots of church things, (church services, women meetings, children meetings, choir meetings, and let's don't forget visiting, and etc.). Then my children had their school activities. Oh, I can't forget I had school for myself. Sometimes I was so tired, I would just go to sleep. That was not good. Cover all the important things, limit the extra family activities. It is OKey to say NO.
I have been told, "But I can't because I have children." That's great, get your children to help." They will not do it perfectly, but they will learn how to help and learn how to be productive adults.
Or "I can't get 8 hours of sleep because I have to much to do." Really, get the rest and sleep you need and plan your day. Please don't think you are the only one that gets the TO DO LIST done. As you plan your day, be realistic. Do forget driving time and traffic. It's hard to be at the ball field and stuck in traffic. Let's be real, except for a wreck, traffic is not a surprise. WAZE is really good with traffic information.
A note to the single parent: find someone to help you. If you have family that is positive, that is great. A local Church could help. Sometime you might have a neighbor that can help. Find someone or a group of people that can help you and encourage you.
Starting every day with ... This is a new day. I will be the best I can be.
Live the Postive Life.
What happened Yesterday, happened Yesterday.
Start a New Day Every Day.
