5 Simple Goals for 2012
Another year has come and gone it was a year full of many memories and mistakes made.
Here is a list of my goals for next year, I set them a bit smaller than I would have liked. I am an over achiever by heart, but I wanted to make sure my goals were attainable so I would have no problem hitting them, and hopefully surpassing each one. I plan to re post my goals the first week of each month so I can stay on track all year. (I would hate to compose a post about how I was unable to achieve any or all goals that month)
1. Write at least 1000 words a week for my novel in hopes of completing it by August 2012.
2. Make a kids created monthly scrapbook. I had a scrap book bought for me 5 years or so ago and I still have not done anything with it. Every year I say I am going to have the kids each pick their favorite pictures of that month and do a page but, I never do. This year I am going to make it a school art project for the kids. They can either draw pictures save school stuff print pictures anything they want. This will be done the first school day of every month for the previous month so the first project will be done on Wednesday February 3.
3.Do yoga at least 2 nights a week. Before my last 3 children were born I did yoga daily and loved the stress release it gave me. I have let my yoga practice slip through the years. My plan is to set up my yoga space before the kids are in bed so as soon as they are in bed I will be ready to go.
4.Jog outside, kids free! I plan to get a neighborhood sitter to watch my kids for an hour once a week to have a stress free jogging experience.
5. A year long study of 12 famous artists. Each month we will focus on one 1 artist and create an art project replica of a famous painting.
A few that I have selected already are:
Vincent Van Gogh
Claude Oscar Monet
Leanardo Da Vinci
I am hoping to fill in the rest as we go selecting artists that we read about through our other studies.
So that's it, just 5 simple easily obtained goals to promote a stress reducing, fitness enhanced, and creativity inspired year!
What are your goals? I would love to hear them!
