I read an article this morning about making a “shipping list” so you can look back on all the things you have finished up and “shipped” out over the past year rather than just planning ahead for the things you hope to accomplish. That’s great too-we all need goals and direction, a map if you will, but it’s also good to take stock of how far we have come. It gives us a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction and also a boost of energy for the year ahead to get those next goals done. So even if you have already made your resolutions for 2011, go ahead and Pat Yourself on the Back for 2010! I am sure you did a LOT of work during that year. I know I did if I think back over the whole year. Being a Mom is hard work. Now, you can get back to THIS year and remember to have a perfectly imperfect 2011. There’s just no way around that:)
