|my scripture for the year|
I always think of the new year like I'm going to wake up with a new found motivation to be and do all the things I need to - to be the "new" me. You know, the "resolutions" me. Naturally, this never happens. I still crave donuts and despise housework. Ha. Always a work in progress.
Over dinner last night, C and I talked a lot about some changes we want to make this next year. We broke them down into categories...Faith, Health, Finances, Travel, Relationships, Miscellaneous. I think they are all pretty basic resolutions. We want to get healthy, grow closer to one another and God. We hope to travel more, buy a new home, pay off some student loan debt and work on some career goals. You can read more about my 2015 resolutions here.
I've been doing the monthly goals thing for the last few months. While I'm never 100% successful with them, I do feel like writing down a handful of things I want (need) to accomplish over the month is a great motivator. I'm not too proud to tell you that if I don't write things down....I don't do them.
Anyway, C is going to start doing a list of his own... and I'm excited to see how much more we can accomplish this year. A good portion of 2014 was spent on the couch watching Law & Order reruns. Entertaining, yes... but not so conducive to productivity.
