I decided this year to write a list of goals, not resolutions. To me a resolution seems too rigid, to "instant" - like if by January 5th I haven't already made it a habit that I've failed or something. A goal is more something you work toward.
We are all a work in progress, and for many of us our resolutions to change take work and take time. And how many of us can really say that by the time we got to December 31st that we had kept our January 1 resolutions? I know I can't name one resolution I kept.
So, this year I made goals for myself.
Stay constantly aware of God's presence 24/7
Fill in my personal Spiritual Inventory Growth Chart (I will be writing about this soon!)
Less time online and more time with each person personally
Take more pictures (I know. You're like, "Really??" Yes. Really!)
Challenge Robi more with more structured activities
Exercise regularly and be more active
Live more in each moment
Be more positive
Finish those posts sitting in "drafts"
Work on the family history book
Take more time to study writing skills
You may think that this is a short list - honestly, I could put 10 items or more under each heading - but since I do tend to be my own worst critic, and since I tend to overwhelm myself with personal expectations, I made it a point to keep each category short.
What are your goals for 2012?
Thank you for sharing...
