You always hear people speak of their New Years Resolutions. I am usually one of those people, but some how, at the end of the year, I find myself forgetting what resolution I had last year, and making the same exact one.
This year, I am not going to make one. Not really anyways. A resolution is a resolve or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something. That’s basically like saying you are going to do something amazing that year, and then never try.
A goal is the result or achievement toward which effort is directed;aim; end. I would prefer to say that I am making an effort to achieve goal(s) that I have.
This year, my goals would be to finish school with fairly good grades. Take lots of walks and enjoy the nature around me. Take pictures with the camera my Hubby got me for Christmas. Take my husband on crazy adventures that I know he wants to do, which will probably mean sacrificing things that I want to do. Read books that will encourage me, make me cry, make me laugh, and make me think more than I usually do.
I want to be adventurous and brave. I should not be afraid to try things, and yet I hesitate on almost everything. Why do I hold back?
Throw me off a plane with a parachute attached to my back!
(Ha… maybe we’ll take this a small step at a time).
But my point is, that I want to live my life, travel, and have fun before I settle down too much. I hear of a lot of people who get married, and then they either finish school, or find a new job, and then they have kids and don’t get a chance to do the things that they dreamed of doing.
Get me out of here! I want to move to California. City, country, and the Ocean. Sounds good to me! I can do these crazy things as a married woman. Actually, it would be way more fun with Spencer by my side.
First step on my list: Finish school.
Wish me luck!
