52 Weeks of Love, Inspiration, and Organization

Author: Melissa Lahti ~ January 1, 2014

52 weeks of love inspiration and organization

As I sit and focus on the New Year and think about resolutions that never get resolved, I was trying to come up with a plan that would actually help to make improvements throughout the entire year.  Then I started thinking about what kind of improvements I would like to see.  Of course there’s the typical get into shape and get organized but then there are also goals I want to make that will not only improve my life but also the lives of others.  As a natural born care giver, I am always and have always been concerned with the well being of others. With that, I have developed a plan.  Not only for myself to follow but for anyone who would like to join me.

I have come up with a list of 52 goals, one for every week of 2014.  I call them “The 52 weeks of love, inspiration, and organization”.  I figure with a new goal every week, I will have 7 days to complete each goal and I will have no excuse to not complete it.  At the end of each week, I will post a journal with my results and I would also love to share the results of anyone else that joins in this challenge.  So make sure to come back every week for a new challenge and to view the results of the challenge from the week before.

This Weeks Current Challenge

Week 8

This week I am going to take on the challenge of learning how to recycle. Every time I throw something away that I know can be recycled, I feel bad. I have been wanting to do this for quite some time but have never known where to begin so this week I am going to learn exactly what it is I can recycle and set up an awesome organized system to have everyone in the house join me.
