New Year’s Resolution 2014

0876-new-year-2013-1100025877-10232013

Here’s 2014 and another round of resolutions.  I think mine may sound like a broken record.  Run a half, stay in shape and help others do the same.  Eat as clean as possible and walk my own talk.

I’m going to add one more to that… go on a great vacation.

It’s been a while since my husband and I have gotten out of Dodge.  Whether it’s the mountains or a beach, we will get a break this year.  We need it!

Cheers to a new year!   Better than the last and full of excitement and fantastic experiences for us all!

Personal Contracts

This is part II of my last Blog on Balance 😉

There are times in our lives that we need to take a step back to reorganize, reassess and redirect our efforts.  This should be a scheduled occurrence.   It could be once a year, every six months, maybe even monthly.  It gives us a time to reflect and move forward in a more positive and productive manner.

In conversation with a friend of mine, we decided that a great way to do this would be to write up contracts for ourselves.  And to keep ourselves accountable, we would send the signed contracts to each other.

We are both working on businesses and trying to find balance with productive schedules that still leave time for us to have a life.  So our contacts were based on those areas of concern.

This idea could also be used in families or relationships.  Not only would it be a great relationship builder but it would assure that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goals.

What would your contract look like?  What areas of your life would it cover?  Believe it or not, the act of producing and signing a contract that came from your feelings and needs is quite liberating and empowering.  Give it a shot!
