So this year I really want to set some goals for myself. Most years I just push them off and say, "Well i will never carry them out so why make them?"
But this year I am going to make a change!
My goals for this year I have thought long and hard about. And I am going to make an honest effort to follow through with them.
Here they are:
1. Spend at least 1 hour a day, with no TV and just play with Alex.
On the days I work this is the hardest, but I WILL do it!
2. Go to Church more. I am not going to set a limit on that but in 2012 I only went probably 4 or 5 times, if that. I really want to spend this year getting more connected with God.
3. Pray each night before bed.
I always say how I am going to add someone to my prayers and I do, however I really just keep them in my thoughts throughout the day. And I usually think of them often but I never really say a real prayer. So my goal is to change that.
4. Read at least 20 books.
I used to read so much! I would finish 2 books a week when I was really reading. But once I started into nursing school that all changed. All I read were textbooks and nursing things. But I want to get back into reading real books and do it for fun.
I think these goals I have set are realistic and achievable and as I accomplish them I will only add to them, not say, "Well I accomplished my goals, now I can be lazy for the rest of the year."
So now I plan to check back in on these goals with you all maybe once or twice this year.
I hope I can really stick to them.
