New Years Resolutions? I’m going with GOALS!

This upcoming year of 2012 is set to be amazing! How do I know that, you may ask?

Well….because I’ve set it to be!  This year, instead of setting resolutions for myself, I’ve decided to set goals.  I’ve always loved setting New Year’s resolutions, getting a cute new notebook and pen from Target, then writing out my resolutions one by one.  I had every intention of fulfilling them, too!

Yet, year after year, December would come and I would realize that I hadn’t really fulfilled my resolutions.  A very disappointing way to end the year.  Then, this year, I wrote out all the things I wanted to happen.  More singing gigs, write more, more students.  I wrote about being a better, more patient and smarter Mommy.  I wrote about how I could improve as a wife, therefore improving my family’s life.  And, I KEPT writing them out.

I re-read a fantastic book I had read several years ago, called “Write It Down, Make It Happen” about writing out your goals.  I am reading it again now! It’s a book I HIGHLY recommend. I kept refining them and thinking about these thoughts in as positive way as possible.  I joined a group called JAH (you can check it out here) to help me with my plans of making a better life for myself and my family through focus and hard work.  Now, was I completely successful with all my goals?   No…not yet, anyway!  However, I am getting closer and closer to the exact life I want to live and enjoying the ride along the way!  The journey should be just as much fun as the destination.  After all, that’s what life is all about!

Here are my goals, handwritten in one of my fave iPad 2 apps called Noteshelf! It’s so cute with fun papers, “pens” with many colors to choose from and even emoticons to add flair! Not to mention it fulfills that “buying a new notebook” need and let’s you write it out by hand, in a high tech way! LOL! Love it!

Let me know about YOUR New’s Years goals! I’d love to hear from you.  And, may I take a moment to thank YOU for taking time to read my posts!  I wish you and yours a most joyous and love-filled 2012!

The flat out truth is that most of us don't end up keeping our resolutions. So how do you keep resolutions, especially if you really want to?

About New Year’s Resolutions

Maybe our biggest challenge this January is getting those New Year's Resolutions down on paper where you can measure them and really do something about bringing them to pass.

Remember last year, I was supposed to start off 2011 with a fresh, chilling dip in the Pacific Ocean, but I missed it.

New Year’s Resolution: Love More

About five years ago, we decided to add two more words to our already established three word family mission statement. These two words: LOVE MORE are so simple to write, simple to say, often hard to put into action.
