I'm not a huge "New Years Resolutions" person… I usually make them, but I'm not always (read: never) very good at choosing reachable goals… or keeping the unreasonable goals that I've made… So, with that in mind… Here's my list for now… subject to change :)
I know that lots of people have a "word" of the year… Another thing I haven't been successful with… BUT this is the year of "Blessings" As in, I'm going to remember to count them every day… No matter the sadness or struggle, or the wonderful achievements… there are many blessings to have AND to share… And, so that's goal number 1 for this year… Be mindful of the blessings…
Goal 2… Church… I know I'm "odd" but, I LOVE to go to church… For me, it's a restful, peaceful place… but I never go… I don't really have any reason why… but that changes this week… I could use some "mind" rest… and Church is the best place for me to find that. And along with this… I would love to actually finish (as in listen every day, not just a month or 3 weeks at a time) www.dailyaudiobible.com love Brian's voice and view… and would LOVE to get through the whole of the bible in a year. And, who doesn't love to be read to :)
Goal 3… ummm… the house… I'm going to try very hard to slowly get a handle on the house so that it's cleaner and more organized… we have too much "stuff" and need to purge, but also just set up some routines so that it doesn't always look like a war zone when you walk in the house… Or so that people can actually stop by without panic around the house.
Goal 4… health… I need to get more exercise… not just chasing the kids… but actual purposeful movement…And, with the new Dr. who actually listens, get a handle on the migraines and any other issues.
Goal 5… actually much higher priority… but these aren't really in any order… less yelling… It's not the kids' fault that I have migraines or am tired and crabby… so I'm going to try VERY hard to dig in and find more patience…
I think 5 is good for now… I can always add to the list if I accomplish everything :)
