This post may send some of you (few) readers into a mild stage of boredom however I read your goals and got a few good ideas so maybe, just maybe, you may pick up a few from me!! I have paired my list up with the ABC's and here is how it goes:
A. APPLE A DAY: I need to eat healthier!
B. BUDGET: I am totally not a budget person.. I want to focus on sticking to a monthly budget so we can start saving for our future!
C. COOK: I need to cook more...hands down!!! I have started making a monthly calendar of our meals!!! And this way I don't have a ton of food piled up in our freezer and it goes to waste because I forget about it and find it a year later!
D. DEVOTION: Getting into a good devotion is a must do this year!!! I really have slacked and I can tell!! I have a few in mind and I am going to try to start this week!
E. EXERCISE: I need to get in better shape! Yep you heard me!! This 100lb soaking wet girl needs some form! I am just down about the way I look!!!
F. FOCUSED: I laugh at this one because I can't stay focused long enough to wash dishes... I need a sign "I think I can...I think I can" ha
G. GODLY: I know I am just not the godly person I need to be. I seem to get so tied up in the world that people don't see God through me anymore.. MAJOR CHANGE!!!
H: HOUSEKEEPER: If Ryan is reading this he is probably falling out of his chair right now in laughter! I am NOT a housekeeper! I saw this website on another blog and it has amazing tips and such Check it this out here! Again where is my sign "I think I can.. I think I can"
I: IGNORE: This is my biggest fault. I let TO MUCH get to me... Well I am going to focus on not letting little things people say or do get me down.. I am going to pray for strength to ignore them and keep a smile on my face.. (I will probably come home and cry but who is watching then!)
J: JESUS: Lola loves Jesus and I am out to teach her more about that sweet sweet name!
K: KIND: I just want to be more kind to people! I hope I can suck some my feeling up and just be nice to even the people that drive me CRAZY!
L: LOVE: I used to just love everyone no matter their faults. I have become so bitter about situations going on in and around me that I have developed a hard heart towards some people.. No joke it has taken over my heart... I am strongly praying that God will start breaking down walls towards some people and I can begin to love them again...
M: MOTIVATION: This is another one I know Ryan is laughing about... It takes me FOREVER to get motivated in the mornings...
N: NO: I have a hard time telling people "No" and I over book myself. I try to make everyone happy but it is wearing me down... My schedule is so busy and I just want to slow down!!!
O: ORGANIZED: Yep this is a MAJOR goal in 2012!!! Get more organized... My house could be on hoarders because I keep everything.. I am about to start cleaning out!!! Do I smell garage sale..YES I DO!!!
P: PUNCTUAL: Oh Me Oh My!!!! I am no where near punctual! In fact I am still handing out Christmas presents! I am usually about a month late on birthdays and 5 to 10 mins late to events... I just need to start being on time...NO MORE EXCUSES!!!
Q: QUALITY TIME: This is truly my love language! I love quality time. I have put it on the back burner because I am always so busy however I have limited some things in my "side business" and I am going to focus more on quality time with my family and friends!
R: READ: I hate to read.. I have no desire to waste my day away in a book! But I do love to read blogs so I am going to focus on reading more blogs!!! They truly inspire me!
S: SAVE: I just need to save money!
T: TEACH: I have started working with Lola on a few home school things. She is doing so well and I can't wait to teach her more!!!
U: UNITY: There is just so much that has gone on in my life that makes unity a struggle. I have always dreamed of having a family that sticks together. My parents were divorced and still to this day it just breaks me. I love my step parents and siblings but I just don't want Ryan and I to ever go down the road of divorce. Divorce is so hard on a family! AND I want our family to have a strong bond. I try to hard to be nice when people try to control us or keep their foot in the door to our home and since I am going to focus on being KIND I am going "BUTT" people out politely! ... So please don't get your feeling hurt when we don't tell you we are making a "get a way" trip one weekend or maybe choose to keep our family issues private! I am just wanting to develop a strong unity with Ryan and Lola!
V: VACUUM: I am on a mission to wear my old vacuum out so I can get a new one that does all my floors in the house!!! Cleaning my floors is such a process... it wears me out!
W: Water: I need to drink more water!!!
X: eXtra! eXtra!: Read all about it!!! Yep I am going to blog more!
Y: YES TO ME TIME: Take more time out for me! Get a sitter and get my hair done or even shop for groceries without telling Lola "No, we don't need that big bag of candy." haha seriously I need more "me" time! I hate to be away from Lola and that is why I never find time for me!! ha
Z: ZZZZZ...: Get on a better sleep pattern.. Right now I sleep WAY to much! haha A reason why I don't get just a whole lot of motivation!!
If you made it all the way to read this!!! CONGRATS and check back tomorrow for a little give away to start the new year!
