In 2012 I will Achieve...
I'm a little slow getting my resolutions decided on this year - to be honest, I'm still trying to get all the Christmas decorations put away. Yes, I'm a little behind so far this year. The way I see it though, you can start a resolution any time of the year - not just the first of January. Once you decide to make a change, you should start on it right away - don't wait.
Also, there are so many things to choose from. I found the above picture on
Google and loved all the things listed - they're all things I want to either try or do
better at. Anyway, for this year, I'm going to still work on some of the goals I set last year so here's what I've decided on:
1. Continue trying to Make a positive impact on someone's life each day. I started this last year and felt the good effects in my own life as I tried to make a positive
impact on those around me. I'm still going to work at making my little corner of the world a better
place - I've learned it not only benefits others but also me.
2. Take a cooking class - I didn't get around to doing this last year so this year I'm going to do it!
3. Improve my Running time and distance. I set a goal to run a half marathon last year and I did it! This year I've already registered to run in two more half marathons and I want to improve my endurance and time - lots and lots of training ahead of me. : )
4. Take time each week to write down the highlights. This is another goal from last year and I was pretty hit and miss at doing it. I started out alright but as the weeks went by, I let the busyness of life use up my time. I'm going to make a conscious effort to manage my time better and write down life's highlights.
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong because at some point in your life, you will have been all of these."
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
