So far 2012 has been a flurry of activity and travel and opportunities and fun. As packed as the days and weeks have been, I've still tried to inch my way towards the goals that I've set, keeping in mind the years mantra of Start Where You Are.
I listed a few of my goals for 2012, and this is where I stand on them:
2. Learn Something New. I took an online photoshop course and I did learn some things. Then I learned even more than I expected at the Blissdom blog conference. Then, as life tends to do, I've also learned more about myself as a wife, mother, friend, and person. But that happens every year. So was this one a gimme? Let's circle back to the photoshop course. Skills learned.
3. Improve My Posture. I've started practicing yoga and it is making my life better. It makes me aware of my posture, my core, and my breath. I do think that it's helping to alleviate the stress I put on my upper back with my poor posture and tension levels. I bought a pack of yoga classes, so I'm roped in at least for awhile.
4. Actively Educate Myself On the Bible. I've gotten as far as ordering the Jesus Storybook Bible, as recommended by so many of you. But it still sits on my desk unopened. That one is going to take a little more effort than I have thus far exerted, but it's not for lack of interest. I just feel like this one deserves a more thoughtful space, and I haven't carved that out yet.
In summary: so far so good. All of these things have stayed in the back of my mind daily, and they all remain important to me. Reminding myself to Start Where You Are, whether it's starting a large project or starting dinner has also made a difference in my Can Do attitude. And considering that a year ago I was spending most of my days in bed early pregnant, I feel productive and positive.
Lots of you linked up or shared your goals here in January. I'd love to hear where you are now. Have you thrown your hands up or are you plugging along? Or somewhere in between? Share your progress!
