I gave up doing New Year Resolutions a while ago and traded them in for an opportunity to set goals. Maybe it's because I work in education and addressing goals is part of my daily life. But I do know that my good friend at My Purple Brick Road posted her 2012 goals for the world to see, so I thought I would be brave and do the same thing. So, without further ado, here are some of my goals:
1. Eat at home. This is mainly for health and budget issues. I eat out way too much!
2. Save more money. See number 1. Plus, my student loans are coming due this summer, and it's not pretty folks.
3. Pay off credit card debt. It's not much, but it needs to go away.
4. Take and pass the Praxis Exam.
5. Work Summer School 2012. See number 2 and 3.
7. Build a better relationship with people who annoy me at work.
8. Read the Bible.
9. Increase my home preparedness. This includes several things...
10. Stop drinking soda regularly. I'm pretty much addicted to sugar.
11. Downsize, declutter, and donate.
12. Watch less mainstream television.
13. Laugh, pray, and be grateful everyday.
14. Be more reliable. Be the person everyone is happy to see everyday.
15. Be joyful - make it contagious.
17. Get serious about the garden and harvesting. I tend to get lazy with my gardening.
18. Learn to save seeds and save seeds for next year. I have a book.
19. Create a better food storage rotation system. Exciting, I know.
20. Be my best at work, even if it is difficult and some things are out of my control.
21. Journal/blog more.
23. Hang artwork on the walls at home. Yes, I have lived here for 3 years and still have many a bare wall.
Plus, I have a few that are more personal and I'd like to keep off of the interwebs. What are your 2012 goals?
