Hope your New Years celebrations were great! Did you make any resolutions? If so, I hope you stick with them. Personally, I don’t make resolutions myself. I am always hard on myself and quite frankly, don’t need the extra added pressure. 🙂
I will however, write down a few PIPs for the coming year. (Personal Improvement Plans) whether it’s to be a better listener, more generous, lose weight, eat more healthy, slow down, speed up…whetever they are, I’m gonna try like the dickens to stick with them.
I have received a few e-mails from customers asking specific PIP types of questions. So I thought it would be a great idea to start another article series. I recently published a series for holiday help offering tips, recipes and advice for great DIY inexpensive gifts for Christmas.
I’m no guru and make no claims as such. It just seems as though folks gravitate to me for advice (for whatever reason).
I think it’s because I am always learning about and researching this or that helpful thing and that is only because I need so much help myself! 🙂 I am always more than happy to share the cool stuff I learn about with all of you. I figure that may be why all the e-mails asking for help. Hey we’re all in this together right? So I love to share what I learn.
There have been a few folks also asking me how my walking and weight loss is going.. WELL…. like I said, I am always hard on myself. I feel very badly that have not been able to get out and walk for numerous reasons beyond my control.
So my first PIPs will be to exercise at home when I can. I will set aside one hour during the day at least 3x a week, drink more water, formulate and test a few more eco-friendly beauty products and get more organized in my business.
Those are my present plans / goals anyway. Since life is dynamic and always moving and changing, I never get down if my own plans don’t work out. I figure, everything happens for a reason so, I tend to go with the flow. 🙂
I will start the PIP series of articles tomorrow but, will leave you with a simple recipe for a great healthy start for your day! Enjoy!
