New Year, New Me

It is time to get on the resolution band wagon. This year I am resolving to become the kind of housewife I am in my dreams. I want to put the kind of effort into my home that I would put into a job. I am constantly telling people that being a Stay-at-Home Mom is a full time job, but I never approach it that way. As a result I feel like I am constantly 2 steps behind where I need to be. This constant battle to get ahead leaves me feeling inadequate and unfulfilled.

I am going to start this year with the goal to start to feel like I am excellent at my job. I want to feel like I have the type of home that people want to visit and the kind of children that people want to be around. I also want to feel like I am the kind of woman that people want to be around. I feel like even if I get my home and children in order but look harried and unkempt it will be a wasted effort.

I know that this will not be easy, I have years of complacent habits to undo, and a million good habits to start adding to my daily life. I also know that it can't be done all at once. I need to make changing my outlook on life a constant thought.

So if you are trying to change your life in a positive way please join me on this journey. It will be a learning experience for everyone involved. I know that there will be days when I feel like a failure, I just hope that they are interspersed with days when I feel like I am making strides towards my goal.
