I begin the new changes tomorrow morning. I am looking forward to this, and I know I will have some difficulty in doing some of it, but I know it will take time to do.
I will begin with the things that are important to myself personally...getting rid of the damage done by the sun and my pores. I am tired of looking at that in the mirror. I am using Clinique's skin care line.
I am also going to concentrate on my teeth, making sure that they get healthier so that I will be confindent when I get my dental work done that I won't screw up this time.
The next phase will be to get my hair back to its normal shine and vitality. I sweat at work and that does some damage to my hair also. I want to get rid of the dullness, so I have stuff to use that is cheaper but effective and something I always used, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle three days a week, and their shampoos and conditioners. I love this as much as the Clinique because it works very well.
I will also be using Sally Hansen's products to grow and strengthen my nails and her cuticle massage cream to condition my cuticles so they aren't so ragged. I am also using Cortizone for my psoriasis (ears and left hand), and Avon's Silicone Glove to soften and moisturize my hands to make them look better.
This will be my morning and evening routines when I get up and when I go to bed at night. Once the routines for this are established, I think I will be alright. The stuff I am doing and using are things I have used in the past and I am comfortable with, so all should be well on that front along with my normal everyday body wash and using.
All of my bills are caught up, so I only need to get myself on a bill paying schedule that is organized and keep the electric bill down to a manageable size through the winter. I think I can do that. It will just take a little effort to make all of this happen.
The next steps to take will be to read the books on self improvement. I did start Stephen R. Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, but had put it down for some unknown reason, but I plan to pick it up and read it this week. I also have a few other books that are self improvement based that will help me as well...I think I have one on positive assertiveness that should work fine.
I am not sure how I wish to take the spiritual journey, but I have some ideas including devotionals that should help.
I do need to finish cleaning my home and getting things ready for my daily routines that start tomorrow morning. It is not a hugely daunting task, but I just need to get into a routine there too so it won't be so bad.
I will also find time to write. This is my true desire in life. I want to become a writer and to do that I must WRITE as I have stated before. I am going to start by practicing, but I need to get into that habit first.
Wish me luck...
