Maravilloso Monday- My New Year’s “Metas” (Goals)

Submitted by on January 11, 2010 - 11:30 am

It’s not like me to wait until the second week of January to write my New Year’s Resolutions. I am usually more organized. Normally, I would have thougth about this a month ago and carefully decided which resolutions I wanted to choose (and share with you, my La Buena Life friends.) But this year I have avoided this task, like the plague. (Ask anyone on my team and they will agree.) You see, I don’t really like “New Year’s Resolutions” I find that more often than not, I (and most people) abandon them within the first couple of months of the year. I think, more than anything, that we forget about them. We start the year with such excitement and high hopes and then we get back into our crazy lives and forget about the promises that we made to ourselves. So, this year I have decided on a few “goals” instead of resolutions. Here they are:

1. Get more organized!
I am sure that I could blame my disorganization on “mommy brain”, oh who am I kidding? I do. Enough of that! No more excuses! I am getting organized. (You should have seen what I did all day yesterday. I organized my home office, which happens to be my dining room, since my son has taken over what used to be my home office, as his play room.) I figure that if I get more organized, including managing my time better I will be able to…

2. Spend more time with my friends.
I spent most of my time with my son and my computer. (My husband is busy working at his restaurant.) So in 2010 my second goal is to spend more time with my friends. I feel as though I am living my Post-Baby life, right now. I love my son, but miss hanging out with my friends, as in my Pre-Baby life. This year I will get more organized & manage my time better, so that I can spend more time with my friends. Yeah! 🙂

3. Give more!
This year my goal is to maintain a “giving mindset”. Inspired by The 29 Day Giving Challenge, my goal is to give away 1 thing each day. Gifts might include, time, food, clothing, money, well-wishes. It feels so good to give, why wouldn’t I want to do that all year?

4. Do all that I can to get my TV show, La Buena Life, on the air.
This goal is a biggie for me and I can’t do it alone. This is where all of you come in. Please help me make this happen. How? By getting your friends to join La Buena Life and my mailing list. I have listened to your requests and I promise to deliver even better content on this year. So share the love, please! Send your friends our way and then when La Buena Life, the TV show, gets picked up you can watch it knowing that you had a part in making it come to life.

So, those are my goals for 2010. Maybe you can help me stay accountable for them. What are yours? We’d love to hear. Share them with us, in the box below.

Happy New Year!

    I love your “10 in 10” idea Monica. That’s great! There’s nothing like having a group of friends to hold each other accountable. I think that that is part of the problem with resolutions. They always seem to be private goals and since no one is watching we either forget about them or bail out.

    I wish you the best of luck with your goals. Having concrete goals is definitely a good idea.
