2013 was a good year, banner really in some circumstances.
i want 2014 to be all that God has in store for it to be.
truthfully – i keep learning how little my planning has to do with anything, God’s plans will always prevail whether they line up with mine or not.
So without further ado – here is the 2014 list:
+ read the entire Bible. gasp, i know, i haven’t done this yet?! i have read probably 80% of it throughout my life – but i haven’t forced myself to really dig my heels in and read page for page from cover to cover. and i’m going to have to do this OUTSIDE of my daily study time. i’m one of these people who has to really study God’s word when i’m digging in, not just read a paragraph, close the Bible, and “mark it off my check list.” yeah, no that doesn’t fly in this nest.
+ study, really study the Word. this pretty much goes hand in hand with the first one. dig in deep, bust out my theology books, dig deeper, fast, and pray through the scripture.
+ get rid of some toxins i’ve kept in my life. truth be told – i hold onto some things even though i know they are not good for me. it’s time to clean house.
+ training. keep going to my trainer and really push myself. having a trainer isn’t for everyone, i get that, but for me that extra umphf of accountability really resonates.
+ another 35lbs. i was proud of the 35 i lost in 2013 – but i’m not finished. i’ve got around 35 more pounds to drop until i’m at my ‘goal weight’. i would also like for this to not take the whole year, realistically i would like to have it gone by summer time – june – which is 6 months. 6 months to really kick my butt into gear.
+ more fun movement. this encompasses a lot of things. i would love to pick up boxing/go to a boxing gym, kickboxing class. there is just something powerful and awesome about throwing a good right hook. this also means more outdoor movement – kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, etc.
+ save $$ for the sibling trip. my brother & i are going back to ireland and scotland in 1 1/2 years. can i get a what what!!! i’m so pumped – seriously like SO PUMPED!
+ stretch out of my comfort zone. sounds easy right – not always. i really want to push some limits and LIVE life this year.
+ conference? this was on last years list, maybe i’ll make it to a conference this year.
+ gun range + capture the flag.& no not together, this isn’t the hunger games and that wouldn’t end well.
+ write my story. this was also on 2013’s list, and it just didn’t happen – and i’m ok with it. obviously parts of my story are still (and will always be) being written. but our stories are meant to be embraced and shared with others. connecting is so crucial.
+ paint more. get my brushes dirty and really create.
+ develop my style. in all aspects; clothing, writing, blogging, etc.
so there are my goals, resolutions, changes, whatever you want to call them.
i’m looking forward to what 2014 holds.
