My 2010 Resolution - Invest

As you may or may not know, I make one word resolutions at the beginning of the year.  It is easier for a sleep-deprived mom to remember one word rather than entire lists.  After all, I have a half dozen To-Do lists going at a time.

This year my resolution was "Invest".  At first glance one might think that to invest is simply a monetary principal having to do with piling large sums of money into the oh-so-reliable stock market.  Though I did roll over my 401K to an IRA this year, that was the extent of my financial investments for the most part.  However, I did have much success with my resolution this year.

In 2010, I invested by:
  • Spending more time learning the ropes with my Mary Kay business, including taking a trip to Dallas for their annual Seminar.
  • Losing 35 lbs. using the WWW technique - Workouts and Weight Watchers.
  • Showering, doing my hair and putting my make-up on every day.  (Fellow moms understand what an investment this is.)
  • Blogging.
  • Beginning homeschool preschool with my 3 year old, which has included "Fun Fridays".
  • Taking part in various ministry opportunities, Bloom among those closest to my heart.
  • Homemaking.
  • Learning how to stretch my pennies in the kitchen by baking my own bread and making snacks instead of buying them.
  • Sacrificing.
  • Teaching my 3 year old about the importance of a thankful heart.
  • Making my true friends more of a priority.  (Something I can always improve on.)
  • Keeping my mouth shut when I really didn't want to.
  • Brushing and flossing every day.  (Well, almost every day.)
  • Using my Rainbow and prolonging the life of my furniture, carpet and family.
  • Lingering in the precious moments that occur each and every day.
  • Praying without ceasing.
Indeed, this has been a fabulous year, and my one word resolution was something I kept in mind every day.  It was a great goal.  I have another great one in mind, but will wait to share that with you until the new year actually begins.
