It’s all part of a plan

I have started the new year off with a long list of things I want to get done.  Will I succeed?  We will see!  I use to think that everything had to be done now, but I learned a very important lesson on this.  It all has to start somewhere and daily consistency is key.  I just had this conversation with one of my girls the other day about how taking that first step is the most important. Don’t get me wrong, finishing something I started brings me great joy and ultimately what I worked towards from the beginning.  I’ve been a dreamer most of my life and I’m pretty sure my Dad is to blame.  If there’s one thing I learned from him, is that hard work pays off.  Dreams do become plans and plans become reality.  People look at me funny when I say “ I love to clean and organize”.  Having a organized home has always been my dream, but that dream has to become a plan in order to get it done.  Just as with anything in life I don’t want my life to always be a dream, it needs to become a plan.  I’ve had this conversation with my girls and also two very dear friends already this year and it’s so apparent we all have dreams.  It’s so exciting to take a dream, form a plan and start.  Sound simple? Not always, but just to be able to dream a plan and work every day towards that goal is so important.  I’m going to go ahead and let you in on a plan I have in place for this year.  Most of you who know me know I have a booth in a antique mall close to me.  I love this place and have not kept it up as I would like to because of our busy life.  No excuse!  My youngest daughter Hannah and I took a load to the booth the first week of this month and as we were leaving I told Hannah that we will do our best to take a load in at least once a week this year.  So far, so good!  My booth looks so much better full of all the goodies we took in.  I took in a table that needs a lot of love and the girl at the counter said she couldn’t wait to see what I brought in because my stuff flys out the door!  That boosted my confidence level and made me realize my plan is working!  Everyone’s dreams are different.  Weight loss, pay off bills, remodel your home, pray and read your bible more.  The list goes on and on, but one thing is for sure, In order to see results our dream has to become a plan in order to become a reality.  Knowing I have a plan in place thrills me more than anything!  I’m sure you noticed another plan I need to work on?? This blog you are reading.  I haven’t blogged since May!!  My dream of starting a blog, became a plan and that plan is still in place even with the break in between.  Go out and put your dreams in place with a plan.  Life is beautiful and having a plan in place motivates me every day! Happy 2018!
