New Year's Goals



"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." - C.S. Lewis


I have thought really hard for a long time about what goals I wanted to set for myself for the new year.
I had to break them down into categories to be able to follow them better.

Personal
*Decrease personal shopping- set a $ limit and stick to it. NO add-ons at grocery store either.
*Desire less material things- be happy with what I have -make it work
*Quality time with family- ie:game night, cooking night, etc
*Quality time with Mark-once a month date night
*Celebrate 10 year wedding anniversary! :)
*Travel more with family-day trips, weekend trips, and vacation
*Take get away trips with Mark
*Begin scrapbook- ordered a picfolio and pages already
*Read 2 books per month
*Stop over analyzing everything
*Have an open mind, arms and heart to new things and people
*Stop comparing myself to others
*Stop worrying what others think and learn how to say No.

Physical
*Run first 5k-begin training bright and early Monday morning!!
*Join a gym or attend mom's
*Increase organic intake. More fresh fruits and vegetables.(try a new vegetable)

Spiritual
*Complete Bible study on James by Beth Moore
*Seek local studies
*Read Bible and study His word in-depth-find mentor
*Build-up AWANA girls
*Prepare 4 year old ss class for Kidzone
*Attend seminars or WOF-ordered ticket to see Lisa Whelchel!!
*Surround myself with other Christians

Business
*Increase sales team
*Attend annual Spring Sprint-ordered tickets!!
*Dial-in phone training weekly

2011 has been both rewarding and heartbreaking for me. My family has experienced sickness, separation of marriages, loss of friendships and then were also able to heal and learn from each of these. My pastor often says we are either coming out of a storm, in middle of a storm or getting ready to enter a storm.  I look forward to the different storms in 2012 with my family.

I wish each of you a wonderful New Year! May God Bless each and every one of you.
