New Years Resolutions 2012

It's that time of the year again. Time to evaluate.

We square ourselves up to the ol' looking glass, squint our eyes, crane our neck and take a critical look at who we are and what we're doing with life. Then, we make promises resolutions to prevent us from becoming more set in our ways and hopefully mold us into someone closer to who we want to be. We make these goals--lose ten pounds, work out more often, spend more time on a hobby, spend less time on the couch, etc--to better ourselves. Because Lord knows we can always improve.

Yep, it's that time of year again.

And I've done it. I've given myself a once over, evaluated my daily life, and taken inventory. I've come up with a short list of goals for the new year. Here they are:
  • A photo a day. Did I mention that I got a new camera?! Yep! And it's fantastic. Now it's time to get out and use it. My plan is to take at least one photo every day of 2012. It'll help me grow, learn, and will be fun! I'll post them on the blog weekly, reviewing each day's image.

  • More blogging. I'm pushing for at least four posts a week. It's quite a bit more than I've been doing--which was usually once a week--but with all our house projects and the additional weekly photo log, there's plenty to share.
  • Three days a week at the gym. Yes, we lead a pretty active lifestyle. But we have memberships so both Hubby and I want to make this a priority. I've already scoped out the latest class schedule. Spinning and yoga are calling my name. Yay!
  • Find a new church home and attend--whether I have to go alone or not. Here's the deal, my husband has a job that often has him working on Sunday mornings. And he can't just take a vacation day once a week to go to church with me. But I'm terrible at going by myself--I don't like to. Since moving in November, we've yet to settle into a new church. We're hoping to find an evening service, or at the very least find a couples Bible study that meets in the evening when we're both available to attend. But either way, I need to get better at not using my husband's work schedule as my excuse for not attending Sunday morning service.
There you have it. My short list of goals for the next year. Don't get me wrong, we have other, more specific plans and goals for the year--both in house projects and personally--but those are different than my life goals for the year. 

Bring on 2012!

  1. Good luck on a photo a day. I know a few people that have done it for a year or two now. Me? I tried doing it for a month and by the time the month was over, I was done taking photos for a while. I love the record of that month though. Maybe someday. It will be fun to see your photos.

  2. My Hubby wants to write resolutions for each other...hmmmm, I'm pretty sure I know what his will be for me! :)

  3. I like your resolutions. I understand about church. It is extremely difficult for me to get the motivation to go to a service alone. I will offer a prayer- right now--that God blesses you in this regard. Happy New Year!
