I am one of those people who like to create resolutions upon the commencement of a new year. I like the idea of a fresh start and a clean slate; I like self-reflecting on what I have done well and where I have fallen short.

For the past few years, I have tried several times to go on a shopping ban and I have horribly failed every single time. This year I am going to focus on paying off my debt entirely & if succeed at this, I will not be doing any unnecessary shopping. Without further delay, let’s get on with the resolution list!

  1. Pay off debt entirely. Devoting minimally a solid $1,000 a month to demolish it.
  2. Blog once a week (minimally)
  3. Brown bag breakfasts & lunches during the work week
  4. Go to Medjugorje on a pilgrimage before the end of 2020 (will need to save for this somehow!)
  5. To continue taking leaps of faith when an opportunity calls, but fear is holding me back
  6. To pray the rosary daily
  7. For both my husband and I to write three things down daily for what we are grateful for
  8. To go through belongings once a month and purge whatever I can to have less stuff in my space
  9. To meditate daily for a minimum of ten minutes
  10. To eat more plant based food & fish


I will work with the above list for some of my future blogs. I can explain the reasoning for some goals which you may not be familiar with or may not understand why they would be important to me, let alone anyone.

I would like to wish each and everyone of you a blessed 2020 New Year which is full and rich in health & happiness.

Peace & Love – Rachel
