  • Stop being so judgmental!!! - This is a big one for me. 
    • I'm doing great with this.  If I find myself judging someone, I stop and think of it in a different perspective.  I also am not voicing my judgments like I did before.  I can't always help when things pop in my head, but I can certainly control what comes out of my mouth!

  • Check and empty my e-mail daily so I don't have a backlog of 700+ e-mails to delete
    • CHECK!  Kicking A and taking names on this!  It's so much easier to delete a few e-mails rather than pages and pages!  I've also been unsubscribing from e-mails so that my inbox doesn't get so bogged down! 
  • Don't slack on the blog.  Post every Monday! 
    • Posting!
  • Cut back on Facebook time
    • Proud to say that I am doing this!  I don't post a whole lot either!  I even cleaned out my friends list and got rid of people that I don't know and/or talk to.  Some people I would keep on my list just so I could read their drama.  Not anymore!
