Resolutions. Goals. Lifestyle change. Plans for a better year.
Whatever you call them this has been on your mind for a bit, hasn’t it?
In personal reflection, I’ve realized that this is not the year to do more. The world tells us that more is better. A bigger home, is supposedly, better than a smaller home. That more stuff to take care of is better for you and your family. That more is not just better…it’s more.
The one thing 2015 taught me is that more is just…more. Profound, isn’t it?
So for 2016, I don’t want to do more. I don’t want to add additional challenges or goals. I’ve got them. I don’t just want to gloss over the goals- do a high-level “Uh, yeah, I got the job done…” kind of a thing. That’s not who I want to be.
I want to keep the same things I’ve been working on and just be more focused. I want to do better. I want to not just write a post, but go deeper. I will tell you what we are working on, what we are learning, and where we are struggling.
Because we are all working on something.
Two years ago, I never would have believed that we would have been able to pay over $40,000 of debt while still living off just one income. That doesn’t even make sense in my mind.
The big goals never really do.
So how did we do it? This month, I’ll be sharing all about our pantry challenge, how we have made lots of small changes that have added up to big savings in our bottom line and even teaching you how to set up your first budget.
I am confident we are going to make some great strides together!
Tell me now, what resolution are you working toward?
