2012 was a good year. For starters, the world didn’t end on December 21 – we dodged a real bullet there. Friends got married, graduated, found new jobs, and so much more. It was a year of real life. David is down to his last year of school (thank you GI Bill), I’m back in school for my Masters, we both are healthy, and no kids. It was only a good year, because in our household of 2 (plus 3 dogs) we do not like to settle. What makes the man and I work so well is that we always look at what will make life even better!
Here it is. Setting resolutions or goals for the new year ahead is a good way to reevaluate the point you are in life. Or at least that’s what I like to tell myself. For 2013, I’m going back to the simple things that make me happy and a few that make me miserable.
- Ride my bike more!
- Becoming a sewing goddess – I mean out of this world, project making, sewing extraordinaire.
- Take a bartending class.
- Skype more with TBF (you’ll learn more about them later) – even though we text each 6 out of 7 days of the week.
- Embrace my crush of Joseph Gordon-Levitt – it is inevitable. I knew this day would come. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQBk7eqoPC4&w=420&h=315]
- Run the Dallas Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. I hate running, but I’m going to own this marathon…I think?
- Accomplish more craft projects from Pinterest.
- Take to heart and practice the lessons from The Daily Love.
- Maintain a 3.5 GPA within my Master’s Program.
- Hang out with my friends more often – instead of once every 2-3 months. We are bad like that, really bad.
- Read at least 10 books – starting with The Other Boleyn Girl (not including my textbooks).
- Purge my closet twice this year and donate clothing to Goodwill or Salvation Army.
- Eat healthier and lose those unwanted 10 pounds.
- Make a quilt for everyone in my family.
There you have it, my 2013 goals/resolutions. With that, I leave you with one of my favorite quotes that I’m taking myself into this new year with.”You see things; and you say “Why?” But I dream things that never were; and I say “Why not?”” -George Bernard Shaw
2013 is a new clean canvas to start fresh with. Create your own painting of what you want your life to look like. It’s going to be on heck of a year.
