12 in 12

So this year instead listing 20 resolutions I will NEVER accomplish, I decided to go a different route. This year I am going to work on completing 12 goals in 12 months! Why did I choose this method instead? Well, let me explain my warped logic! Ha! A person can start to develop a habit and stick to it after performing said habit for a month to 6 weeks. All of the goals are areas in my life that need I figure if I take a month to "learn" a positive habit, I will hopefully continue it after the month is over. Make sense?? Now these are MY personal goals, but I will strive to have my family join me on certain months!!

I would love to list all 12 goals for ya, but guess what? I CAN'T!! I only have a few ideas ready...I need to pray about what areas in my life need improvement and positive change. I do however, have January's goal ready!!! Ta-da......

{a different person every day, whether it be through a phone call, text message, email, snail mail, FB or in person}

Now to incorporate my family on this I would like to get the kiddos to draw pictures to send to certain family members that we don't get to see a my wonderful Aunt Jessie!! I would love to teach them to pass on love and encouraging words to could make such a difference in just one person's life.

{a few other goals I will tackle throughout the next year: abstain from drinking "real" sodas, staying off the computer until the kids go to bed, no sugary treats....and more to come.}

I am going to do my absolute best to stick to each goal, and I am going to be honest when I fail. :) If you would like to make an effort with me each month just let me know, and we can encourage each other!!
