Gotta love how you start out with an excited intent to do something you had planned to do. Sometimes, the computer totally deletes your hard work and you have the choice to either begin again or quit. The same goes for New Year’s resolutions. So, in the best effort possible, this article is being re-written with the hope that it will not be deleted again! At worst, it will be saved to another application, just in case.
Every new year, we get it into our minds, that this is a fresh start. It’s time to dust off the work out gear, dig out the art supplies, tap shoes, or even finally get around to using those gift certificates someone thoughtfully gave to us. No matter what you choose to do, make 2013 a year that you don’t give up! Don’t give up on your plans, ideas, or intents. Find the stamina to keep going and do it! Here are a few ideas to help you in case you are not sure how to tackle the new year.
1. Be inspired: Schedule and attend an art class. Mrs. Myesha Francis of M. Francis Gallery is wonderful at pulling the inner artist out of anyone, regardless of age. She is uniquely talented to help all ages. Whether it’s a girls night out, corporate function, or just simply a family affair, contact her to release your inner artist and walk away with a few wall-worthy pieces.
2. Get Organized: Set up systems that will help your day begin and flow much better. Life style expert, Lainika Johnson shows you just how to do that in her awesome video. If you need to learn where to start, take these brief three minutes and watch her talk show you how!
3. Work out: Living Social has two great deals to kick start your goal. Whether it’s Pilates for $40 for an unlimited use 1 month trial, or $22 for eight boxing classes.
4. Beauty: Groupon has a bunch of deals from $59 teeth whitening to $17 Blowouts. It’s up to you to choose, but whatever you do, enjoy your deal.
Hopefully, all of you will have a great New Year’s day and night. Enjoy yourselves and learn to take time for you and your family making memories.
