New Year

Some say New Year Resolution.
I would like to say New Year GOAL.
With that Im gonna write them down, not only that, Im gonna post them to my wall.
To be seen.

I think we as people work a little harder toward goals, and even harder if written down, putting thoughts to paper. Just keeping them up in your head I think leads to failure quicker.

So here is my first draft of goals:

Be a better friend:
2011 (probably earlier) I failed as a friend. I can come up with lots of excuses, Im sure, but I failed and thats just that. I hurt a person/people I love dearly, and to find that out, killed me. It still does. I shed lots of tears, still do a little. I suck. I dont wanna do that again. That was my BIGGEST regret of 2011, SO Im gonna be a better friend. And if Im failing you as a friend, call me out! I get distracted easily. I have 3 little ones, and I have a hard time. So call me out! Smack me upside the head.

Be a better mom!
Being a mom is tough stuff, I absolutely LOVE being a mom. I wanna be a better one. I wanna do more with my kids, get down on the floor and have fun. Parks, outings fun! Let them be kids!

Be a better wife.
I LOVE my man! OH how I love him! He does so much for our little family! He works so hard! He deserves WAY MORE!

Lose weight.
Isn't that everyone's goal? Im tired of being tired. Im tired of shopping in the fat girl section. (I dont though..) My hubster has been working out like a maniac, and he looks good! I dont want to be the fat one next to him! HAHAHA

Work Out:
Penelope has been waking up way early... I dont like it, but I think it will be a good time to get some Zumba and wii fit in!

Save more money!
We have done SO well. We are out of debt. Now we are working so hard on saving! Ok not SO hard, but we need to! I want our emergency fund funded this year, so we can start saving for a house!

Get involved with my church.
Last week I volunteered for winter VBS, I LOVED it so so so much! O want to get involved in some sort of ministry. Nick wants to work with the youth, and I wanna go where he goes, I wouldnt mind working with the little ones either, not older than 1-3rd grade. BUT will go where needed. Where God wants me to be. Praying about it!

MOST importantly, draw closer to Jesus.
My relationship with Him this past year was MAJORLY lacking.
This year is gonna be better! With Nellie waking up early, I plan on doing some quiet time before my work out! Pray. Read. and listen!

 So there you go.
What are some of your goals?
