Happy 1st Birthday The Hard Hat Belles!

God's Work Jeremiah 29:11

Happy Birthday The Hard Hat Belles!

On this day (February 25th), exactly a year ago

Dddneen and VeeBee filmed their first video

The crazy product you will get to see

Will show you where they used to be

They had no aprons, no make-up, no lights

No wigs, no audio, and they didn’t work nights

They took their camera and filmed without script

They laughed, had fun and then coffee they sipped

They had decided the name of their journey

The Hard Hat Belles was chosen – without an attorney

So when you enjoy this video they made back then

You’ll compare it to the current ones and they’ll get 10 out of 10!

VeeBee’s Easy Way to Make New Year’s Resolutions and Keep Them

Happy New Year

VEEBEE’S THOUGHTS ON NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

I haven’t made any New Year’s resolutions in a long time. In actual fact things changed in my making of New Year’s resolutions after my son Sidney was born. BC (before child), my life was a breeze. I had it together. I was organized to the tee. I had endless energy to make long to-do lists – and to actually do ALL the things on these lists. Then in 2004, I just gave up. I had learned in the short 6 months of Sidney’s life that I had no control and in actual fact was out of control…

BACK IN CONTROL

Eleven years have passed since then, and I think I’m ready to yet again make some New Year’s resolutions! I have found my new groove with The Hard Hat Belles and feel I owe it to myself and everyone reading this, to make a fresh start and try once more to not only make these vows, but actually work at keeping them. Now you might ask yourself “What has changed?” or “Why now?”. The answer is that I’ve become more realistic and have learned to let go of my pride now and again. I have learned that it is okay to fail and it is alright to have to make adjustments in order to reach my goals.

So, here I am typing up these thoughts and contemplating what I need to do and how I’ll actually keep track of what I’ve done. Instead of giving away my specific New Year’s resolutions, I will try to give you some pointers on how you can go about dealing with this New Year’s Pledge Monster – that is if you are planning to tame one yourself!

TAMING THE NEW YEAR’S PLEDGE MONSTER

  1. Write down your specific resImportant to Journal/Trackolutions. Actually picking up a pen and putting it onto paper is a very powerful way of committing to something you would like to accomplish.

2.  Find a friend or mentor to whom you can be accountable to. It helps to tell someone about your plans. That person can pray for you and support you.

3.  Brainstorm for these areas of life: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual.                                                                                                      Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, and Physical Examples4.  Be realistic with your goals. If you have unrealistic expectations, you will set yourself up for failure and disappointment.

Realistic and Unrealistic Goals

5. Use your calendar to help you plan. Either writing goals onto your calendar or entering it onto a calendar app on your smart phone or I-phone will remind you daily of what you would like to accomplish. You can also sync all you calendars onto one central calendar.

EQUIPPED AND READY

Now that you have the tools, all you need to do is apply these to accomplish your New Year’s resolutions! I dare you to train your New Year’s Pledge Dragon. Achieving what you set out to do, will not only make you feel better about who you are, but ultimately it will bring glory to God, for what you’ve done with what He has entrusted you with.

Psalm 51:10-12 (NIV)

Blessings for 2016!
