Just thought I’d pop in and share a random post on things I’m striving for in the New Year. I hate to be too specific, as in say, weight loss goals, because I find myself getting discouraged if I don’t hit the mark. I only lost twelve pounds last year, but that’s okay. It’s better than gaining twelve. And since I hadn’t set a strict goal – I simply wanted to be healthier in 2012 – I am successful! I only worked out 59 days (give or take a few) last year, so to improve this year, I want to at least double that number. That’s probably the most specific goal I’ve set for the New Year.

So, here are a few ideas rattling around in this brain of mine:

N– Never say never. Try new things.
E–  Engage myself with my children more.
W– Wonder at God’s creation. From a tiny lady bug to the, fluffy, white clouds, God’s handiwork is to be admired.

Y– Yearn to be closer to God.
E–  Encourage my friends and readers.
A– Adapt to any situation without complaint.
R– Remember my dad daily, and strive to keep his legacy alive.

Those are my thoughts; I’d love to hear yours! Happy Friday!

    Those are good goals for all of us to embrace. I also had a good father, and I have a perfect Heavenly Father. I want to walk closer to Him this year.
    I love you.
