Ring in the New Year …..

with those pesty New Year’s resolutions.  I have researched them and find that the following make the top of the list:

  1. Improve physical well-being: eat better, exercise more, lose weight, drink less alcohol, quit smoking, etc.
  2. Improve mental well-being: think positively, enjoy life
  3. Improve finances: get out of debt, make a budget and stick to it.
  4. Improve self: become more organized, manage time, reduce stress
  5. Spend quality time with family members
  6. Take a trip
  7. Improve career: perform better at current job, get a new job
  8. Make new friends: improve social skills
  9. Be more involved in sports or different activities
  10. Volunteer to help others: practice life skills, give to a charity IMG_6636

 My daughter in Atlanta started the new year off in a big way by organizing her linen closet.  Time to get rid of old clothes and toys and all of the “stuff” that we may not need but others may actually want and enjoy.  Hmmm, what’s next, maybe the playroom?!!

Whatever your new years resolutions are if any, be realistic. The most common reason for participants failing was setting unrealistic goals for themselves (35%).  Remember, the best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time!  So hang in there ……. HAPPY NEW YEAR and HAPPY RESOLUTIONS – Now, get to work !

About Ruthie Curtis

About Ruthie I am a real estate agent in Columbus, GA and love my “job.” I enjoy being associated with the professionals at Bickerstaff Parham Real Estate and the folks that I come in contact with each and every day. I basically just love houses and all that is associated with them. It is so rewarding to help buyers and sellers reach their goals and to be a part of the process that makes it happen. I especially love gardens and how they can work to improve a property both in aesthetics and function. As a Master Gardener, I feel that I can add another dimension to the home buying and selling process. Partnered with my love of creatively doing the “what if we” changes to houses and my attention to detail, I can offer my clients a well-rounded approach to meeting their real estate needs while having some fun along the way. I have lived in Columbus for the past 25 years and have been actively involved in the community. My involvements include being the 1996 Race Director for the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens; a past board member of Girls,Inc and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA); a board member of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Columbus Botanical Garden, the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society, and is a member of the Women’s Reading Club of Columbus and the Overdue Book Club. I am a member of St. Luke United Methodist Church where I serve on the Altar Guild.photo (10) I am a UGA Bulldawg – having grown up in Athens and attended the University of Georgia where I received a BA degree in Advertising. I have two daughters, two great son-in-laws, five grandchildren and a Jack Russell Terrier named Jasper. I live in the historic Overlook area in Columbus where I recently purchased an older home and enjoyed the experience of putting my creative knowledge and skills to work!
