I have to admit...when I got the email requesting a few of my New Year's
Maybe it's because they are too big? Too lofty? Too much of a blanket statement? I like specific, attainable goals. Because not being able to complete something or be successful at something I set out to do is pretty much the worst thing ever to this perfectionist. Which is why having a newborn rocked me to the core. Kiss your completed to-do list goodbye. Forever. I digress...
Since I consider myself a "recovering perfectionist" now, I will go with the flow and share some things that I hope to accomplish in 2013 - one blog "goal" and one "personal" goal. And if I don't accomplish them, well then I guess I don't. Life's messy. Things happen. Plans are made. Plans are broken. No one is perfect. Not even me. Shocking, I know.
I currently have 684 followers vis GFC, RSS, HelloCotton, and Bloglovin'. It is my goal to double those numbers by the end of 2013. That's roughly 1300 followers. Gulp. I guess I better get started now. So go visit my blog here and help me out! (How's that for a shameless plug?)
The personal goal was the easiest goal since it's something that has been on my heart for awhile. I shared a few weeks ago about hating "stillness and quiet." I'm constantly on the move to the "next" thing - whether it be an activity, a task on my to-do list, or my current season in life.
It is my goal to be still in 2013. To enjoy the season that I'm currently in. And to not wish my
2013 isn't going to happen again. There are no do-overs. Chris and I will celebrate 5 years of marriage this coming year. FIVE. I feel like I blinked and those 5 years past. I can only imagine what the next 5 will feel like.
So, I hope to enjoy this year and ALL that God has planned for me and maybe gain some new blog followers along the way...
What are your goals for 2013? Do you even make New Year's resolutions? If you had to make one, what would it be?
