I read chapters 1 and 2 yesterday and spent time thinking about what I really want out of life. Being 70 does not mean that I don't have goals and dreams. Three seems to be a magic number, so here are my three: be healthy and fit, to have a close walk with God, to have a close relationship with family. What I want to accomplish in each of the goals are:
1. Healthy and Fit: - I want to loose 35-40 pounds to be able to keep up with my grandkids. I want to eat more fruits and vegetables. Starting out with 2 a day. I got my 2 in yesterday because of setting this goal. Feel better about myself.
2. A closer walk with God - I want to have a quiet time every morning to read my Bible and pray. This is easy because I am already doing it. I also want to think more about God and what He wants me to do during the day. Thinking about friends, including Spark friends, and what I can do to help and offer encouragement to them will make this easier.
3. Have a close relationship with family. There are several ways that I need to work on this one.
a. Spend time really listening to DH and Mom. It is so easy to get on my computer and let the rest of the world go by.
b. Call and write personal e-mails and letters to family that don't live close.
c. Be more transparent.
I am looking forward to the changes being made. Reading Spark articles, blogs and getting encouragement from others has already given me more determination and energy.
I have already started thinking about what I want in my Vision Collage. It is exciting just thinking about it. The more I think about it, the plainer and more detailed it is becoming. Looking forward to accomplishing my goals.
