New Year’s Resolutions (A Work in Progress…)


I usually don’t make New Year’s resolutions. They always seem so cheesy and the people around me never seemed to keep them. But, then I thought about my life and things I’d like to improve on and maybe accomplish. So, here’s my list (in progress) of New Year’s Resolutions:
– Get out surfing at least twice a month during the winter months and four times a month during summer months.
– Get my National Board of Professional Teaching Certification
– Play for another season of Volleyball
– Finish reading the New Testament by March
– Finish the paintings I’ve started
– Avoid getting over-extended by not saying “yes” to more social obligations than I can handle
– Eat out less and prepare healthier meals more consistently
– Work out at least three times a week (volleyball and surfing count as working out)
– Strengthen my arm & shoulder muscles to help avoid volleyball & surfing injuries
– Add the art portfolio and writing/poetry section to my website
– Seek out practical ways that I can spoil and show love to my husband
– Continue seeking God and relying on him for my needs
– Bring down our debt as much as we can, get credit report & learn more about achieving financial stability
– Set up my studio space & darkroom, have a studio-warming party to mark the opening & let people develop pictures and make art
– Travel somewhere I haven’t been with friends
Well, that’s what I thought of… I’d love to see others make lists too! It’s fun to see what direction people are aiming to take in their lives.
