I’m not usually the type of person to make resolutions at the beginning of the year. And if I were, forget them including to lose weight or find the cure for cancer. But I am naturally a goal-setter and January is a great time to evaluate what I’m working toward.
The past year was a fun one, full of travel, adventure, passion and friends. At the start of the year I made a list of goals that I focused on throughout 2012. I was going for “more” – read and pray more; grow personally, professionally, spiritually and emotionally; be more open with my life, thoughts and dreams; have fun more often; do more new things.
It’s fun to look back on 2012 and see how I accomplished each of my goals! I went on vacation to New York City (twice!), Vermont, Chicago, Sioux Falls and Leavenworth (Wash.). I gardened and canned for the first time, read nearly 20 books, spent countless hours with friends (both new and old), prayed and sought God more than ever, and had a lot of fun! I was also more transparent with those close to me about my life and experiences. This was indeed a year of “more!”
So what are my goals for 2013? It’s all about going for even more! I’d love to travel, read, explore, pray, try new things and open up more than last year. But primarily I’m focusing on two things that will take some serious focus and stretching beyond what I believe my limits are. For now things are staying under wraps, but I promise to bring you into the loop as they develop!
If you’d like to pray with me over the year, I’d be happy to share a little detail…. But for now, I’m praying for even more for YOU as we move forward into this new year!
