since i have chosen my word of the year – i haven’t thought too much of goals.
i still plan to do my monthly goals – i think that is the best way for me to stay on top of things and really focus – instead of loosing what all i want to accomplish in a year.
so these goals – are general goals, things i want to just do.
not make a big deal out of it – but make it part of my life.
instead of a big goal that hovers over me – small changes that turn into secondary breathing.
there are things in my life that i’m constantly finding are weighing me down that shouldn’t.
i want to be present.
i want to be reflective.
i want to be active.
and pouring into others.
i want my life to be a reflection of the Lord – in a way that transcends just a year.
so may 2016 be the catalyst to really make that happen.
chill | i’ve been too high-strung lately. i need to relax more – stay in bed a few minutes longer, read all the books, lounge some, and enjoy the silence.
photography | a love photography was slammed this last fall – and i’m hoping to take many more pictures next year and stretch myself and my creativity.
be active | move. move. MOVE more. kayaking, hiking, regular workouts, walking, rock climbing – do all of the fun active things that i can in my area. i live in a warm climate – so why not take advantage of it more!
explore | we live in such a big, glorious, beautiful world. why not see more of it?! i’ve traveled overseas a lot – but i want to do more day trips and traveling in the good ol’ usa.
be goofy | i used to be a lot more fun that i am right now. i think this thing called adulthood has sucked a lot of the random fun from my life. i’m always over thinking and never just doing.
so here’s to bringing back some of the goof ball to my life. i’ve missed it.
rejoice | i don’t take stock enough of all of the good the Lord does. for me, for friends, for this world. i want to stop focusing on the negative – and focus more on the good and be thankful and GIVE thanks.
