It’s January 13th, and I am just now getting around to my resolutions post. I’m nothing if not a
This year I decided to do a little something different with my resolutions. I have always viewed my resolutions as just resolutions-when in reality they are goals, so this year I am treating my resolutions as goals. The big difference being that I am setting mini goals on my way to obtaining my larger goal/resolution. I am still working on my mini goals, but here is what I have so far.
My 2010 Resolutions:
1) Continue to grow in my relationship with the Lord.
This has always been a very important resolution for me. This year to make sure that I really do grow as a Christian I have subscribed to a daily devotional e-mail. I have also committed becoming more involved in our church.
I used to love to volunteer when I was younger. As a high school student, I gladly spent my afternoons visiting with elderly patients in the nursing home. As I grew older, the everyday hustle of life took over, and I find myself rarely giving back to my community. This year I want to become involved in at least one steady volunteer activity. I am currently looking in to being a mentor.
3) Continue to lose weight and become a healthier me.
I have currently lost 20 pounds, but I have more than a few pounds to go. My first mini goal is to lose 5 more pounds by my birthday.
4) Be more organized.
To accomplish this resolution, I have assigned each month of the year an organization project. Busier months have smaller projects while larger projects are set for slower months. This month’s organization project is the garage.
5) Manage my finances better.
My goal is to decrease my spending and decrease my debt. I am currently working on my mini financial goals which include how much debt I want to pay off this year and how much money I want to try to put into savings.
6) To Live Simpler.
God has blessed me with so much, and instead of appreciating the wonderful things that I have I find myself wishing for and wanting more. My goal this year is to learn to live a simpler life. I want to be happy and content with the things that I have and learn to cut back on my need for material possessions.
