Happy New Year, 2015!
Over the past couple of years I have learned something about myself, big year long goals really fizzle out over the course of just a few months. With a hubby working on the road, life seems to take many turns and I find myself flexing and shifting right along. This past year I found that setting a few simple goals, and maybe a couple short term goals works best.
What I have worked through and found for the first half of 2015 is pretty simple.
*In terms of my health – MOVE, SLEEP, EAT
Be 20 pounds lighter by December 2015
MOVE 10 miles a week, SLEEP (Rest my body)
I am also adding a change to monitoring my INR and going back to an anticoagulant clinic.
A photography course in January, then practice through the spring.
Spiritual Disciplines –
Continue memorizing James 1
Also, the section a month Scripture Memory Plan and the Salvation Basics Memory plan from Kathy Howard’s Free Discipleship Tools.
I am also very excited to be planning to Read through the Bible with She Reads Truth community.
Monthly Reading across genres.
This month, January, I am planning to read:
There are two audiobooks on my iphone right now, The Snow Queen and The Life of Pi.
One overnight trip with each of my immediate family. (Hubby and 3 youngest daughters) I was able to do this in 2014 and what a joy and blessing it was to me personally, and to the relationships.
So that’s it. Just some simple goals and a lot of joy facing the new year!
How about you? Are you goal setting?
fyi, I edited this post some after reading this piece by Mary Bacon
