Last year Doug and I shared our resolutions with each other. We hoped to hold each other accountable to them. I’m not totally sure if it worked but I’m hoping to do the same this year.
So, after lots of thinking and praying … here is what I’ve come up with for my 2012 new year resolutions and goals.
Cook with more vegetables.
Doug and I both hate vegetables. When I cook a meal, it’s usually just a main dish and that’s it. It’s bad. But I know if I made a side of frozen peas or something, we wouldn’t eat it. With three growing boys in the house, I need to do better. So I’m on a hunt for recipes with veggies in them that Doug and I will like. I’m thinking stir fries, chili’s, casseroles – that sort of stuff. Anything that will make eating veggies taste good 🙂
So I’ve been toying with the idea of being published … like a book. I’m not sure I have what it takes, but I think it’s at least worth a shot. So in 2012, my goal is to do more research on what it would take to be a published writer and how to do it. Maybe even send something off to a publisher(s) by the end of the year.
We’ve been in our house for about two and a half years and I have ZERO pictures of the family on the walls. So this year my goal is to finish decorating and hang pictures on the walls. I love taking photos of my friends and family and I have a tons of picture frames …. I just need to put them together and put them on my wall.
Just keep going with the Little Warriors. I think the first thing I want to do is plan the second event. And the next thing is to get a website up and running. I started looking into it before but it got too crazy with Thanksgiving and Christmas. So I’ll get this done in 2012.
There are so many more things I want to get done, but I think I’m going to try to focus on these four. They are pretty close to my heart these days and something I end up thinking about every day. I think those are the best kinds of resolutions. The ones that are on your mind every day.
It’s just so crazy to think of everything that has happened over the past year. How much we’ve been through and how far we have come. So is the journey of life I guess. Here’s to 2012 and the adventures God has in mind for us all!
