A New Year...Same old goals
In 2009 I have some goals...while a few areas of focus will deal with down-sizing...in most areas I hope to grow! My aspirations are:(in no particular order)
To shrink my waist...and my thighs...and my butt...and my etc, etc, etc.
To increase the amount of stuff being stored in my brain
To magnify my spirit
To lengthen my stride
To advance in creativity
To step-up my determination
To heighten my self-esteem
To share my faith
To propagate the family name...or at least have the process started!
To augment our income...while abating our spending
To improve upon my skills as a student and excel in my classes
To design and bring to pass a magnificent creation with my sewing machine...or at least learn how to use it
To assemble a family history book
To go to on a trip/cruise with my hunk of burning love (would that be Josh or Lindor Truffles?...or the fact that I said "hunk of burning love" might cancel my worthiness of cruising)
To not let the unimportant things hinder my progression and to realize everyday where my priorities lie.
To never be insentient
To care about myself and others but not care about what others think of myself
To have an upsurge in patience and not be so quick to frustration
To escalate my parenting skills
To purge negativity from my speech
To dip into more non-fiction, uplifting, self-helping books
To get a kick out of the journey (sounds a little more passionate than *enjoying*)
*To use the thesaurus much more often to try and sound intelligent*;)
And lastly but certainly the furthest from the least... To develop a more profound relationship with my Savior(if I do this all the other stuff will fall into place...so I will start here!)
So these are just some of the things I have had on my mind for a while...I need to write it down and hold myself accountable! So often I get wrapped up in the minutiae of life and it starts to weigh me down and keep me from doing what I know I really should...over the next year I need to keep in mind and become an expert on what is good, better, and best. I think so often I am doing so much good in life that I am overlooking what is best...I am sure some of you know what I mean! (I am not even going to mention blogging...oh I mean...oops!)
Happy New Year to you all!! We are definitely partying tomorrow with friends and stuffing our faces before we have to be accountable...because for one last day my goals are null and void until the 1st. Sounds like I am setting myself up for some true success;)
Hope you all have a face-stuffing, game-playing, belly-laughing, whistle-blowing, confetti-throwing, lip-kissing day!
