Planning a Better You

My husband regularly says he isn’t perfect but he is trying to do a little better every day. What a great motto.

So you want a better version of yourself? I sure do. There are a few things I would like to work on to be a better me.

Wait my turn

I know I am doing it but sometimes I can’t seem to stop myself. I interrupt people when they are taking. It is the number one thing I want to work on. It is so rude. I am ashamed I have a problem with it.

Just plain weight

It goes way beyond just wanting to look better. I am on blood pressure meditation and the only reason is my weight. It is a health issue. I want to be around for my family. If looking better is a side effect, I am ok with that.


In the depths of depression, I am sure I wasn’t the best wife and mother. Now that I have the depression under control, I want to make sure that I am working to improve at both roles.

Work harder

I want to work on staying focused and not be so distracted at work and home. I have some big goals for work and it will take some hard work to make them happen. At home I want to get the garden going again. That is also hard work. I don’t want to subscribe to that saying work smarter not harder. I think both are important.

I am not aiming for perfection. I just want to follow my husband’s words of wisdom and simply do a little better each day in all areas of my life. The ones I listed are high priorities but I want to be better in all aspects of my life.

What do you want to improve?

  1. You are not the only one with somethings to work on and in fact you and I are alike in some ways. I too have a tendency to interrupt. My weight, I have been fighting with for many years. Up and down, up and down. Some days I feel so distracted I can’t get anything done but I try not to beat myself up although I find that hard too. I take it day by day. I tell myself I am human and life is to short to beat myself up. I just give it my best. I haven’t met anyone yet that is perfect.
