A Goal for the Week, A Goal for the Month

So I've decided instead of New Year's Resolutions, I'm going to set a single, achievable goal for myself at the beginning of each month.  The goal will be something to help me work towards a more perfect physical, mental or emotional well-being. 

January's is simply to eat breakfast each morning.  This is more challenging than it may seem, as I usually have to eat breakfast in my car as I'm driving to work, OR get up at 5:30 in the morning to have time to sit at the table.  So, I can either plan out some healthy, portable breakfasts, or get my tired butt out of bed earlier.

I think I'll start with the portable breakfasts.

I also am hoping to find time to set a small weekly goal - separate from my to-do list.  For example:  this week's goal is going to be to make an effort to be more kind to the people who surround me daily.  That will be a challenge today as I am miserably sick and just want to hide under the covers and/or tell everyone to go jump in a lake and leave me alone.

However.  I do love a challenge, so I'm going to be nice to the people I live with. 

Do you have any small, achievable goals you could be working on?

P.S.   HI MOM!!!!
