goals

I don't usually make goals or resolutions.  In the past I have made them and set myself up for failure and that's not a good feeling!  This year I am approaching my goals differently, I didn't want to create a list of unattainable things to accomplish only to give up by January 5th. I have created a list of things I know I can do.  I did not set any lofty goals beyond my reach.  I am working on putting things in place to help me conquer these goals, which will make lovely blog posts for my new blog.  I love when a plan comes together [insert smiley here]

Returning from our family getaway this Christmas, I sat in the airport terminal, said a prayer and began writing down my goals for 2012.

  • Deeper daily time with Abba.
  • More quality time with the Hubby and Babies.
  • Take more steps toward healthy living.
  • Be more available.
  • Start sketching and drawing again.
  • Create more laughter in my world.
  • Start blogging again.
  • Read 6-8 books.
  • Establish ink & mouse for God's glory.
  • Become a better designer/artist.

I have also decided to claim a word of the year.  Ali Edwards (a well known scrapbook artist) has been inspiring people to pick "One Little Word" for each year.  I have joined her Big Picture Class to keep me accountable to stick to my word.  The word I have chosen for 2012 is, cherish.  The verse I found to inspire me is Proverbs 19:8,
The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper.
here we go two thousand and twelve...

I'm so proud and thankful to call you friend... thank you for encouraging me in the same. I am choosing to dive into ONE WORD... the first word that comes to mind for this next year... He plants it and I participate in the nurture and harvest of it with many attainable moments for it. :) Tell me the first word that comes to mind for you and then I will share mine. ;) ((share via FB ... I'll catch it faster. ;) )) love you!!
