Last year, I made some goals for 2010. I wasn’t sure how well I would attain them, but looking back I think I did pretty good. 2011 has been a long year, but a good year. I have learned some things and am a better person because of it. Last year I set just 5 goals. Here they are:


1. I want to be a better wife.

I think this is a goal I will always be working on attaining, because none of us are perfect and there are always things I can work on, but I know I improved a little since last year.

2. I want to be a great mom.

I think I am a good mom, but I want to be GREAT mom. I want to set an example and be there for my kids. Definitely something to always strive for as well.

3. I want to finish the things I start.

Not really sure where I stand with this one. I think I may of done better this year, than before, and it’s definitely something I am more aware of.

4. I want to establish what my hopes and dreams are and achieve them.
Definitely something that I am still working on and having a hard time with. Having a baby this year made this goal seem more confusing and unattainable. I have so many things that I want to do, but not sure which to work towards or go for.5. I want to make a difference.

I definitely hope I have made a difference in someone’s life this year. I feel that I made a difference in the big picture in all that do for others. I really do try. This is something I definitely worked on this year, and plan on doing it again for next year!

2011 Goals:

I have been thinking a lot lately about the goals I want to set for this 2011. Some are the same as last year’s and some are different. Here they are:

1. I want to lose that baby weight!

I was doing a good job with my dieting in the past month or two, but then when the Christmas holidays hit, I kind of just gave up and figured I would start again in the new year. I am determined to achieve my goal weight and I have a year to do it in, but will hopefully do it in less. I am excited about being a little bit more healthy and hopefully getting into a great work out routine that I can always do even after I get the weight off.

2. I want to be a better house wife.

This is different than being a better wife, because a house wife refers more to what I do around the house. I want to keep a better house. Keep up with the house cleaning and make my home a haven my husband can come home to. I know it will not always be perfect, but this is something I definitely need to make more of an effort in.

3. I want to be a godly mom and set a good example.

This too is different than last year’s in that I don’t just want to be a great mom, but I want to be a godly mom. I want Adam to know I love the Lord and I want to raise him to love God and to know Him and have a personal relationship with Him. These are things I can start now. I can set an example in all that I do, because I know that even know at this young age he is watching and learning from me.

4. I want to get our finances under control

Last year we took a class at our church called Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey I even blogged a little about it. We did pretty good working on the things that we learned from these classes and even went to a all cash system, but later in the year when we ran into a bunch of car problems and other things, some of this stuff got off track. I would really like to get ahold of our finances and pay off the things that need to be paid of this year. I will be helping achieve this goal by working on selling Lia Sophia jewelry and i am hoping that it will be a big help.

5. I want to work on my relationship with God.
This is something I really need to work on. I want to have daily devotions and prayer with God, but it is something I struggle doing each and every day. I want to be close to God and know Him more and I want my walk to be something that is obvious and not a secret. Not that I am hiding it, but I want people to know by the way I live and from the peace and joy that I have. I am really looking forward to God working in my life this year as he has done in the past. It may not always be pleasant the things I go through, but that is Him molding me to fit His image.

You might ask what about blogging goals? I have a few changes I am thinking about making here and there, but as far as blogging I am going to let this year pan out and see what happens and go from there.

So those are my goals for this year. What are yours?

  1. Such a shame. Your blog used to be authentic, and now you write for people instead of yourself and GOD. You've become wrapped up in having readers and having your version of a successful blog and you've become boring and desperate sounding. I hope you're not really like this in real life, because if so…it makes me sad. You seemed young, naive, but true, honest, and authentic….you're still young and naive…just not the last 3 anymore on your blog. You can have 300 followers or 1,000 but you wrote better when you were a blogger with 50 readers.
