It is really hard to believe that it is the end of 2011 already. It feels like only a couple of months ago I was just talking about this very topic and wondering what 2011 held in store for me and my family. Now I'm at it again only this time I am wondering what is in store for 2012. Every year I always try to come up with a few goals that I want to try and meet before the year is over and this year I am VERY determined to meet some of those goals. I have put some of these things off for years and think it is high time that I got my butt in gear and started doing them instead of just talking about them. So here it goes.........My NEW goals for 2012 are:
1. I feel this one is pretty important.....Getting back to health. I don't mean going on a diet cause those never work for me. But I do mean making some significant life style changes that will bring forth a much healthier and energetic me. In reality I need to lose about 30 to 35 pounds and have been putting it off for WAY too long. So, this is the year I really will try to take a step in the right direction and start getting back to health!
2. Be more appreciative of what I have and show it to others. I am not saying that I don't already have a deep appreciation for the things I have. I am very grateful for everything that I have been blessed with but I would like to try and embrace a more grateful attitude and spread that attitude on to others.
3. Write more. I love to write. It is a source of great joy for me and I wish I could do it more often. Some how it always seems to take a back seat to all the hustle and bustle that life throws my way. So this year I am going to try and make some designated time just for writing. Short stories, poetry, blogging, journaling...it doesn't really matter what I am writing about just as long as I am taking the time to write.
4. Try to come up with extra sources of income. I have been a stay at home mom for 8 years now and have loved it. Through out those years I have come up with several ways to supplement my families income while still being able to stay at home. One of my goals for 2012 is to continue finding unique ways to generate the extra income to be able to continue to be a stay at home mom. New business venture for 2012??? We shall see.
So there you have it. These four things are some of my top goals for 2012. I'm excited for what the new year holds and what kind of fun this year will have in store for us. Bring on 2012! I am ready! What are some of your goals for 2012? Please share them with me in the comments section. I would love to hear some of your goals for the new year.
Happy New Year!
