There are so many things I want to accomplish in 2010, and for once in my adult hood I am NOT putting weight loss. I am at a healthy weight, and while I want to hit dream goal ~ and I know that my dreams are going to come true this year, it will happen naturally. I have changed my entire lifestyle, so if it is meant to be, it will be. As of right now I am healthy! And so 2009 was a success because I gave myself the gift of health, happiness, and self acceptance. There is no gift that NO ONE can give me that will top that.
BUT I do have some pretty tough goals that I want to achieve this year.
**MY MAIN priority is always to better my relationships with my household relationships, as well as my spiritual relationship with Our Heavenly Father**
1. Write a book (or two): Weightloss, and a children's book.
2. Run a marathon (even if it's just a 5k)
3. Volunteer somehow to encourage heathy environments for children.
4. Possibly get in with MOPS to become a public speaker to encourage parents and preschool teachers alike.
5. Plant/tend/ and harvest a garden this year. (Spring/ Summer/ into Early Autumn)
6. Embrace each day for what it is : a gift! I want to realize my attitude makes all the difference in the world, not other's.
7. Paint and redecorate every inch of our home.
8. Build an entertainment savings account. Yes we have a savings account, and are not struggling. But I hate that we pull out of it whenever we decide we want to do something. Now, we don't do it all the time obviously or it wouldn't be there. And praise the Lord it is enough to probably float us for a year if need be, but we don't want to use it for that.
Yes, the list could go on and on, but this is a vast list of various things that in my heart, I have a passion for. A drive and motivation to tackle. Honestly, as well as I feel lately I want to tackle the world, but what happens when we begin to focus on our goals for the upcoming year ( mind you I did not say New Year's Resolutions) is we become over zealous and then do not follow through. We make lofty goals, and then decide it was too much to begin with. I simply REFUSE to do that. I am goal oriented, and I know that I can accomplish anything I put my mind and heart to. Not just my mind, not just my heart, but both.
