Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were filled with joy, delicious treats, and treasured family & friends! 🙂
Every January to me is new beginning – a time to reflect and plan. I first like to look back on the previous year’s accomplishments and shortcomings before making my goals for the next year. So remember that little goal list I posted last year around this time? Well time to pull it out of the wood works and see how I actually did…
Listen To Myself For Once PASS
I left a job I was not happy at, and that alone would tell me I succeeded in this aspiration. I also took a job that is more entrepreneurial and out of the box, which by the way, I’m LOVING. I’ve realized over the last year that deep down only I know whats best for me, no one else. And that voice is one I have to listen to. It’s kinda funny how you can know something your whole life and still have to relearn to apply it.
Be More Spiritual FAIL
I could be doing a lot better at this one. I think I’ve improved my stress level but there’s still a lot of progress to be made in terms of how I spend my time.
Own my Own Piece of Earth PASS
We did buy a home earlier this year, and it is everything I thought it could be and a whole lot more… of unexpected pop up work. But that’s fine. We locked in a great interest rate and we absolutely love our new neighborhood. We are on the way to making our home uniquely ours. It feels good only throwing 75% of our payment away instead of the full 100%. 🙂
Go to Europe FAIL
Geesh, let’s put this one on 2014’s list yet again. We need to just up and do it!! I’m not getting any younger here.
Run a 5K FAIL
This really is not that hard of a goal…and yet I still haven’t accomplished it. Crazy. Well this will have to change! Who else is with me on the Couch to 5k program?!
Live a Healthier Lifestyle BEYOND FAIL
I would love to say I totally nailed this one….but not so much. I still eat way too many cheeseburgers, slices of pizza, and sit around much more than I should. And I’ve gained like 5lbs…. so yes, massive fail. But I kind of am forced to change my ways this year (I’ll get into that more in my next post: 2014 goals and resolutions).
Develop & Maximize my Unique Talents BARELY PASS
The fact that I have picked up a paint brush again, started journal-ing and writing, and also reading whole books (other than House Beautiful mag) has told me that I am going in the right direction. Now it’s taking the knowledge I’ve acquired, the countless hours thinking and planning, and turning it into a reality!
So I’m 3 for 7. Not bad. How did you guys do last year? What are you putting at the top of your list for 2014?
