Into A New Year
As I've taken time to read other blogs, facebook posts, etc.. so many people having been talking about their goals and resolutions for 2011, I've realized that I haven't really thought to make any of my own or as a family. I'm not one for resolutions, but I'm all for setting goals (my hubby not so much). It wasn't that I didn't want to set any, I just didn't. I still haven't, but I will...maybe. I've just been thinking about them...and doing dishes, and taking down Christmas decor, getting the girls back on track with school, getting myself back on track with exercising....and haven't taken time to do this.
I was reading yesterday on my friend Sarah's blog (which is great by the way), and she posed two questions that I decided to write down and ponder over the next few days. What are they?
I want to set goals, but I don't want them to be out of reach of attaining. I want them to be simple and ones that will make a difference in everyday life.
As I step back and look at all that took place in 2010, I see some things I want to do differently, I see areas that I need to grow in, areas I need to focus on. I see things that maybe I need to let go of for now, simply because of the season of life we are in. Whether my goals turn out to one or twenty doesn't matter. What matters is that I feel them in my heart, not out of a sense of "duty".
