There are many things needed to close out a year. It’s something that I usually just did haphazard I guess. I mean, it’s going to happen one way or another— “time and tide wait for no man.” But for the first time in my life, I feel compelled to really be purposeful.
At work, I have my list of things to do.
1. Enter contributions; 2. Print out Labels, 3. Print out Letters; 4. Stuff envelopes; 5. Print W-2’s and 1099’s. 6. Buy Stamps. etc. Closing out a year is part of the job. It’s important. I have legal implications.
At home, I usually just crossed off dates on the calendar. And ate a bunch of food on New Year’s eve. And regretted it the next day.
But this year seems different. My husband and I have been talking about having a family meeting with the kids and reviewing the year (I thought it would be fun to look through pictures) and also set goals for 2016. Family and individual.
For example, in 2015 I started seeing a Naturopath for my health and have made great advances in the area of healing my gut and losing weight and inches. In 2016 I want to increase the amount of greens I eat and I also want to add yoga, strength training and Zumba to my workout (which presently consists of 20-30 minutes 4-5 times a week on the treadmill while watching Netflix. This is a very attainable personal goal. I think.
