I promised to talk about my goals for the new year. I have been working on them a little bit. It might take me a while to get it all down. If I try to do it all at once, I will get overwhelmed and just quit.
As a matter of fact, I am not even done making them all! I don't want to rush through it. I think that's why I fail so many times. I make plans without thinking them through clearly and taking the time to pray about them first. I can make all the wonderful goals in the world, but if they aren't His goals for me, what is the point?
So, onto the goals.
First, I worked on my Spiritual goals. I will only list a couple here, even though I have several.
1) Finish reading the Bible in 90 Days. I am in Proverbs. I hope to finish by April 31st.
2) Memorize 2nd Peter 1:1-11 and apply it to my life by reviewing it regularly.
3) Read through the Bible in 90 Days again over the summer months.
Then, I worked on some personal goals. Again, I will only list a couple.
1)Continue learning to run for exercise, and increase my time each week until I can run for 30 minutes without stopping.
2) Go to bed no later than 10:00 each night. (This one is proving to be my undoing!)
I have goals for what I want to accomplish with the kids, for school, and financial goals. So far, things are going pretty well. I am working on my 90 day Bible, and I am up to running for 5 minutes without stopping.
One important personal goal I set was to increase my own personal reading time. The more children I have had, and the busier I am managing my home, the less time I have had to read. Anyone who grew up with me would tell you that I was the classic bookworm.
I am excited this year about doing a lot more reading. I have finished 1 book, and I am looking forward to starting the next one! My biggest problem is that there are so many books I want to read; it's sometimes hard to know where to start! I have a good mix of books lined up, and I'm sure I will add to the stack as time goes along.
Well, there you go. Those are a few of the things I would like to accomplish this year.
Anyone else want to comment on any goals they have set and how it's going so far?
