2012 Goals


I’m only about a little over a month late, but I’ve really been wanting to post about my goals/resolutions for this year. I love the idea of a fresh start each year and being able to look ahead at everything this new year will bring. Even though I’ve never really been into resolutions, this year I have a few things that keep sticking in my head.

First of all, I want my word of the year to be intentional. No matter what I do, I want to be intentional about it. Getting homework done, hanging out with friends, doing laundry – I want to be present in every situation and care about what is going on. Oftentimes, I’ll be folding laundry and just rushing to get it done so I can move on to the next thing that I have to do. But doing this is just rushing my life away. I know this is kind of dramatic, but I really do think that being intentional, even about doing laundry, could be relaxing and positive.

Next, I have a few broad things that I want to focus on throughout the year:

  • Saver each moment (goes along with being intentional)
  • Better time management
  • Create a budget – and stick with it
  • Allow time for creativity
  • Create a working wardrobe
  • Focus on service – serving God and others

Finally, I have a few goals that I’d like to add to my bucket list for the year:

  • Go backpacking
  • Go on a 30+ mile bike ride
  • Go tubing/skiing/snowboarding
  • Go on a road trip
