Get Real With New Years Resolutions!! Make Them Challenges!!!

Get Real With Yourself!!! New Years Resolution or Challenge??

I have seen so many people talk about New Years Resolutions and how some wont make them and some will. Well it’s natural to come into the New Year with goals that you are diligently working towards however, I do not think that people really understand the difference between a resolution and a challenge!

A Challenge is a call to take part in a contest or competition! A Resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something. So what’s it going to be? A Challenge??? A call to take part in a contest or competition that will in the end give you the win? Whether that win be weight loss, paying off debt, getting your family healthier, or going to church twice a week. Will it be a resolution??? a firm decision to do something or not to do something?

My advice for making your 2014 New Years Challenges happen for you is to first of all grab a pen and piece of paper and write them down! Put a poster board, white board, or write it on your bathroom window! Make sure your goals are visible to you EVERY morning when you wake up and get out of the bed! This will hold you accountable daily! You need to see what you are not doing…. Now don’t beat yourself up over it if you have failed at a few along the way, but be sure to always try to accomplish them on a daily basis. If your goals are visible to you every day and you are reminded then you may just succeed in 2014!

You can also call a trusted friend and tell her you want to give her a list of your long term and short term goals and you would like for her to call you out on them! For example if one of your New Year’s Challenges is eat healthier, before you go do your Saturday grocery shopping she can call her and remind you of what your goals where so that you don’t sneak a box of Debbie Cakes or a pint of ice cream.

The other thing that I feel is very important about New Year’s Challenges is to make them obtainable. Do not make goals that are way beyond your reach because you will end up failing and just throwing your hands up on it all and walking away! I have seen it time and time again “I am a size 20 in January and I want to be a size 5 by March!” This will probably not happen and if it does this is not healthy….Make your goals reachable!

Do not let the vicious cycle continue of making NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS that you just don’t stick with! Make your New Years Challenges happen by preparation, perseverance, and accountability! Do not be afraid to set up short term and long term goals. Weekly, monthly, quarterly, and then the YEAR goal! This will help you obtain your goals and make it easier to break them down where they are easily obtainable! It’s in essence giving you a road map to your success in 2014!

Setting GOALS is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.

Mission Possible

                      Image

Hello. My name is Stephanie Morton and I am a stay at home mother of four beautiful little girls! I am an entrepreneur as well. I love the ability of staying home with my girls and don’t really care too much for the daily chores like laundry, dishes, and house cleaning but it comes with the territory. I am 28 years old and four children… Yes I know, WOW! I am married to an amazing man that I love dearly. He is a wonderful father and supportive husband. I am truly blessed! 

I am now incorporating blogging into my everyday life because I feel like I can offer some insight and helpful hints to many stay at home mommies on how to deal with the everyday “I wanna pull my hair out” moments, I want to share with you all what I am doing with my family and how I am making the days of our lives go by with happiness and health conscious decisions.

 

We need our children to see that they are our most valued treasures. We need to show them that they are our nations future! It is our job to teach them whats right and guide them in the right direction.I will focus on the home and being a mommy but I will also post about 3 things that are very important to me in hopes that it will help others or inspire someone else.

First and foremost I will be incorporating the lives of Mommy’s! Stay at home moms are my niche because that is what I am so I know the language so to speak, but I would also like to talk about the things working mothers go through as well. This is a parenting blog so honestly whether you stay home with your children or work 40 hours a week, you should benefit either way.

Secondly, I will be discussing on many of my blogs prevention and awareness for children whom have been or are being abused in anyway. I have been in this situation and I have learned so much dealing with this horrific trauma in a child’s life and I hope to help those in need for guidance on what to do in this type situation. I also intend on sharing information on how to acknowledge that this may or may not be happening to children you know or even your own. Like I said, I have had to deal with this traumatic experience in my life and I want to reach out and help others be able to prevent or acknowledge that this is happening by educating you on what I have learned from my personal experience. I am not a doctor. therapist, or licensed counseler and I do not claim to be one but I am a mother and I have been there and dealt with it and have learned so much and still am learning on coping mechanisms, prevention, etc. so I will be sharing what I know with you. 

Last but not least I will be sharing many ideas on how to live a healthy lifestyle and getting your family on the fast track to a health and wellness. I will share recipes that I use for my family, informative information on health and nutrition, and how I get my family the nutrition that they need. Hopefully you too can incorporate these things in your home.

Being inspired by other mothers is what made me want to share with all of you what I am doing in my home so I hope you enjoy my blog and feel free to share with your friends and family if you wish.
