2010...it has came & went already. Speedy little thing I must say.
I have been reflecting on some of my Goals I put out there on the blog
world at the beginning of 2010. All of them have been accomplished in
These Goals are in no particular order...
Goal #1...Have More Fun...check. I relaxed on some things in life &
decided to not be a bump on a log in certain situations..took time to play
games & go outside with the kids. Let the house be messy sometimes & didn't
freak completely out & blow a gasket.
Goal #2...Run a 5k. Not only did I run 1 5k...I ran 3 & in each I lost 1 minute
off my time. I went from 33 min to 31 minutes. That. Is. Huge. For. Me.
Goal #3...Be Intentional. We started having bible studies with the kids & applying
scripture to their lives. Now I must admit...the last month or so...we didn't do as
good as job with this as we should have. We let the hustle & bustle get in our way.
Goal #4...Stronger Marriage. Of all the goals...I think we worked harder & saw
more growth in our marriage than in any area this year. We are finally on the same
planet as far as our finances & we don't allow arguments to get out of control like
we used too. We have had one of the best years I think so far. Once we confessed that
we really needed counseling & went...it only got better from there.
Goal #5...Healthy Lifestyle. You know...we were really doing well on this until about
a month ago & all the goodies came along & we let it attach us like a wild beast!!
I am not kidding at all! With running comes some discipline & it forces you to
watch what you eat & drink on a more consistent level. So we are back in the
saddle so to speak today & not gonna let it slide again!!
(just noticed I did great on both #3 & #5 goals until a month ago...hmmm)
Goal #6...Take a photography Class. Did it! Learned so much. I want to take
another one soon. I bought 2 new lens for Christmas...SO EXCITED!!
I also made some amazing Pastor's wives friends from all over the states &
I totally treasure their friendships. I had a chance to meet a few of them in
October & I am soooo looking forward to May when we get to spend a
few days together in Nashville!
God led me to start mentoring our staff wives & that has been such a blessing
in my life. Our time together is precious to me.
Lots of change this year...lots of me letting change happen & not digging my
nails into the floor & saying "no way". But releasing things to Him & letting
Him guide me .
I could seriously PAUSE my kids ages right now. I love everything about
I am praying about new goals for this year. I already know a few that I have
on my heart. I am finding that I am just a type of person who needs to be
pushed...needs someone to say "here is the finish line"
or the direction you need to go. Or I will just wander around in "duh" land for
awhile like a crazy person. Seriously...I'm not kidding people.
I will post on them in the next few days. Happy New Year!!
