Forward, ho!!!

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Finally, I am at a place with an internet connection that is not through my phone. Okay, well, that's been my excuse for the last week or so. However, I have no legitimate excuse for taking the year of 2010 off, essentially. And I am not going to apologize for it. Yes, I am discouraged by where it has placed me, but I'm choosing to move forward.

On New Year's Eve of 2010, I sat down and listed out some goals for the coming year. This year is a big year to me, as it is the year I am turning 30. Yup, the big 3-0. And while many people would say I am just a youngin', I don't always feel like I am. So, it's time for me to get my internal/mental/emotional age (as WiiFit would put it)to match my actual age!

So, here goes. My goals for 2011:

***Be under 150 pounds
***Run part (if not all) of Bloomsday (signed up today, that's a step in the right direction)

***Read my Bible each day (going through the 1-year Bible reading plan with my church)
***Read "My Utmost for His Highest" each day
***Journal Daily (handwritten journal--not typing). Old school, I know ;)
***Blog at least once a week (aside from my Project 365 blog)

***Be in a place of my own (rent or own, I don't care, I just know I shouldn't be living with my parents any longer)

For Fun:
***Go to New York City in October to celebrate my 30th birthday (even though I'm not 30 until December)
***Complete Project 365 Blog for 2011
***Scrapbook 2010's Project 365 (enlisting my sister-in-law's help with this one!)
***Read one Biography/Autobiography each month (I find I get more inspiration from reading true stories from other people--not just watching a movie about their lives or reading a fictitious story)

There are so many other goals that are tied into each one of these, but I figured this was enough to be going on with for now.

For those of you wondering, Project 365 is a photography challenge. The challenge is to take a picture of something (anything) for each day of the year. I am pleased to say that I actually completed this task for 2010 and uploaded all of my photos to Facebook. This year, I hope to broaden my horizons and post pictures on 365project.org/em_clark1
as well as on Facebook.

This year I hope to broaden my horizons a bit more, meet new people and experience many new things. Let's see what 2011 has in store for me!

    Good job, Erin.

    Yesterday is gone, so we can't do anything about that. All we can do is focus on today and the future. You have set some really good and achievable goals. So I wish you the very best as you work towards those goals. You CAN meet them. And we will be right here cheering you on.

    I love photography!! So I will be checking in on your 365 project. Have fun with it. Maybe look towards entering a favorite or two at the fair....or a local contest.

    Best wishes always....Bill

    Your goals are impressive. I haven't looked at your 2010 365 project. Good luck with all.
