So how did I do in 2012? Some of the things on last year's list are on the list again. And that's okay. I continue to grow spiritually and to learn other things. As long as I continue to make progress, that's all that matters.
I came across an article on A Biblical Marriage "Should Christians Make New Years Resolutions?" It's worth a read, and it certainly got me to thinking. I do have goals for 2013, but my main goal is to not let them take the place of God.
I wasn't going to give much thought to the past year or resolutions at all, just keep on going. Then I received this article from (in)courage in my email. There's a free download for the questions and they would be excellent for reflection and even for scrapbooking journal prompts, so I thought I'd share. Since I do have goals, this link at Simple Moms is going to be useful for making them happen. I also went ahead and purchased her book. Info on how to get it and four others in a bundle at a super deal is below and over in the side bar.
So what are my goals?
If is were to choose a word for 2013, it would be simplify. I started with my blog header. I think it's much cleaner now. I plan to simplify lots of other things as well.
- Organize my craft room (this is on ongoing process)
- Organize my photos and do more with them. ( They shouldn't just live on the computer.)
- Continue to improve my photography- I got an external speedlite flash for Christmas so I've got to learn to use it.)
- Lose 10-15 pounds.
- Start/maintain a system of menu planning for healthier eating.
