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
