5 Things I Want To Change

4 Aug

Another awesome list like thing I call 5 Things where I list 5 things about a certain topic! I would love for you to link up at well by blogging your 5 things and then commenting with your link!

This week I am doing 5 Things I Want To Change – and trust me – it was not easy to narrow down to just 5. Sometimes I am an over achiever and can’t just take it slow, then I overwhelm myself….I am working on it – I promise!

#1 – What I do to get a paycheck.  @KellyOlexa and @YourInnerSkinny have taken the leap and left their jobs for what they love. They are making their dreams work for them. I want to join them. My goal is to narrow down exactly what it is that I want to do and make it happen by the beginning of 2013 so that by next summer I can make it happen. I figure this should not be a hasty decision, that is why I am giving myself time.

#2 – How I keep in touch with people. I don’t feel like I do a good enough job anymore. We are all busy people – I get that. I just never want to say – I will call them tomorrow and God forbid something happen today. Whether I start making Skype and FaceTime dates, phone call appointments, keep cards with me at all times to write letters, send photo cards – whatever – I just need to get it going.

#3 – My need to spend money. I like to shop. I do and it is for no real reason! I just know that if I want to be able to make my #1 happen – I need to stop this and focus my energies to working hard and not spending hard. I would really like to have some savings started!

#4 – My social media reach. Sounds kind of self-centered. I know. I just want to really show that I can be influential in the things that I am passionate about. I have already started to do some things differently this month and I want to just be able to keep it going and tweak it as necessary.

#5 – How we eat in our house. We have to re-think food. We used to eat so much better in North Carolina. Fresh fruit and veggies, and affordable priced items were everywhere. Up here it is so expensive and it has hindered our ability to focus our healthy eating habits. I want to make sure that we cut in other places (#3) so that we can make this a priority. Getting everyone else on board will be a little hard – but I think I can do it!

What are 5 things you want to change?

    Right now I’m good with everything other than a few things that are out of my control for another 2 yrs…then there’ll be change

    Good luck on your ‘paycheck’ change! I’ve worked for myself for over 20 yrs..it’s a wonderful thing!

    Great list! I love #2. It’s important that we keep in touch with others especially as we get busier and more inundated with technology. Even if it’s lunch one week or a phone call each Friday, etc. it can make a big difference in our relationships and our well-being. Love the list idea! xo

    Great list, Molly! I love that you’re taking some time to think through your job and how you make money. Best of luck determining your niche, that’s exciting! And eating well can definitely change regionally, we struggled to find the same quality of farmers markets and CSA’s, etc when we moved last summer, too.

    did I write this post? haha jk. But seriously I agree whole heartedly with every single point you’ve made. I hope you find what it is you want to do for a living. It’s so frustrating to be in a job that we only half-heartedly (if that) enjoy.

      I love being at a University – the position I am in just isn’t all that I am looking for…We will get there sister!
