Who Wants This Year To Be Different?? (You can raise your hand if you want)

Who wants to have a better year this year, the best ever??
Do you?
Here's a Top Ten Suggestion List to Tell Yourself:

10. I'm going to get enough sleep more often than not.
(I would tell you to shoot for every night, but let's be real).

9.  I'm going to get everything ready the night before and be on time every morning....welllll many mornings as I possibly can...

8. I'm going to eat more good foods and less junk.
More granola bars and fruit, less candy and Cheetos.

7.  I'm going to make at least 2 new friends this year.
Not on social media....actual friends...And I'm going to start the first day of school by talking to someone I never met before.
6.  I'm going to study first and play later.
I always say I'm going to; this year, I am.
5.  I'm going to ask one teacher about his or her life outside of class, so that I remember they are people, too.

4.  I'm going to do someone a favor or a chore without being asked, at least once a week. And I'm not going to expect anything in return.
3.  I'm going to read a book for each season, at least, and then talk to friends about it. (Start looking for your Fall book ASAP!)

2.  I'm going to cook supper, or learn to cook one thing, and make it for supper, either by having someone show me, or following a recipe. And I will clean up afterwards.

and the #1 thing I am going to do this year (OK so there are several sub-sections):

I am going to treat myself the same as I would treat my best friend.
  • I will be less critical of myself, because I'm doing the best I can.
  • I will take care of my health and speak up if I need help.
  • I will give myself the gift of solitude once in a while to clear my thoughts.
  • I will stop being worried if I don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend.
  • I will not judge people.
  • I will remind myself that lots of people care about me, even when I'm having the world's worst day                          


  • I will keep my eye on my goals and keep working at them.
  • I will let go of yesterday, because I can't do anything else about it.
  • At the end of every day I will remember at least one good thing that happened, and smile.
  • I will remember that overall, life is good.
 Now get out there and make this year better!! You can do it!!
