For the past couple years I have approached my goal setting differently. I used to list something like exercise everyday, let’s just say that by January 8th that goal was a bust. I’ve learned to set more, realistic goals for myself. You know, so I don’t get discouraged and give up by February.
In college I read a book titled Authentic Happiness… I am pretty sure I have mentioned things I like about that book on this blog before. One chapter talks about goals and instead of taking something away– add something to your life. For example: Learn to play guitar, travel somewhere, read more. I LOVE IT! But I also still need to cut things out of my life. So my list is a mix of both. Here are some of the things off the top of my head that I hope to attain this year…
More handwritten letters to family (once a month)///Less browsing aimlessly online
More positive thoughts/// Less comparing myself to others
More creativity just for fun///Dust off my first camera that shoots with film
More time feeding my spiritual self. This is the only one where I am saying to do something everyday, because it’s something I really want to do for myself and it will, in turn ,bless my family.
More patience at home
Learn something new (Haven’t figured out what that something is: )
Launch my scrapbooking blog next week…
Follow through with my goals, not letting fear hold me back.
What are some of your goals? I’d love to hear…
Here’s to Twenty Thirteen…!!!
