Three weeks: 21 days…that’s the magic number scientists once thought it took to create a new habit. For years I heard people share this age old addage, and think to myself “I must be broken.” The only thing I seem to be able to accomplish in three weeks is anticipation of when it’s over: don’t judge.
30 days from now, the first half of 2016 will be complete. Let that sink in for a moment. By July 1st, 2016 will be barreling toward “Back to school” sales, Halloween costumes, and of course Yuletide joy.
I’ve accomplished alot in the first half. I quit my job, and started my own business. I taught Shorty how to swim, with Tiny currently learning. I bought a new car, and learned how to properly hem pants. All in all I’m feeling pretty confident about the direction by professional life is taking.
My personal life, on the other hand is a whole other story.
My main New Year’s Resolution was to become a better spouse to Captain. While I’m not a horrible wife, I most definitely am not a winner winner chicken dinner 100% of the time. Heck, I’d wager it’s more like 75% and that’s being gracious. (if you’re reading this, sorry Captain)
I also resolved to become a healthier me. While I have certainly moved a lot more this year (due in part to not having to work overnight and keep odd hours) I most certainly have not secured the spot for being the best me I can be, ya dig?
So, starting today I’m taking some of these bigger resolutions and breaking them down into monthly installments.
I’ll journal my progress here, so get ready.
