My Book List:Books to read in 2018

In 2017 I made a mental note to read more books?.  When I completed a book I would scribble the name in a notebook. When I reflected on my year, I was glad that I read more, but I didn’t feel a sense of accomplishment.

Looking back, how could I feel successful? I didn’t set a goal to achieve, I was just flying by the seat of my pant.  Since I wasn’t striving for anything there was nothing to celebrate. Since my whole blog is focused on goal-setting and completing goals. I figured a book reading list would be a great place to start this goal setting journey.  

5 Things You Must Stop Doing To Complete Any Goal

Like your children, each of my girls has various strengths. When I see one of their strengths shining through, I always remind them to use their powers for good and not evil.  As a woman, you are an amazingly powerful creature! When it comes to others, especially your offspring, you can demonstrate unimaginable strength. You show strength in how you uplift, care for and love others. Yet, when it comes to yourself you don’t use your amazing powers for good. Instead, you take the passion from your strength and channel into causing severe damage to yourself.

How I buy 3 months worth of snacks for 4 kids in under 1 hour

Anyone who knows me knows that I hate grocery shopping?. My trips include going to the store, thinking to myself “Why don’t I ever create a list”(or forgetting said list), strolling through the aisles trying to Pinterest recipes as I go, wondering why don’t I end this cycle. I know you’re thinking “Girl just plan”.  Don’t know why, but it’s always been a struggle. Also, why is Walmart always redesigning? STOP MOVING THINGS ALREADY!! I digress.?  So needless to say when Amazon Prime debuted I was the among the first to sign up!

Since Amazon Prime, several companies have jumped on board by also offering fast shipping at affordable prices. Which is a win-win for me, because I get to save time and money!
