Goals, resolutions, the new year


Here is a close up of my planner that I got coiled. Which was tricky. Staples said they couldn't go thru the chipboard that I used to make the cover.... So I bought an exacto knife and stood at the counter at Staples for 30 minutes cutting out each hole on the cover so they could coil it. And yes it was worth it. The holes should have been bigger... But it is made. Next year's will be even better.
I wanted to make my own cause it is just plain cool to make something from scratch but also so that I could include my goals for the year. I thought about them a lot. And prayed about them too. As I did this I came up with a list of 5 categories - different than I have in the past. Regan says they are just fancy... it's the scrapbooker coming out in me. But I'm fine with that.

They are
• sense of order
•• create beauty
•• enjoy life
•• stretch and grow
•• awake my spiritual self.
All my changes, things i want to do fall within these 5.
Yeah, they sound good and cutesy.... but reading them encourages me and makes me want to do better. And isn't that the point!
So who knows what is coming this year... hopefully a big move across the country, maybe medical school for Regan....
just hopefully i am doing better on all the things i can control.

Love your goals Rhonda! Especially the "create beauty" and "enjoy life".
Only a scrapbooker would sit at Staples for 30 min cutting holes. Love it *S*
