New Year's Resolutions 2017

Friday, January 13, 2017

There's something about this list that feels a little incomplete, and I can't put my finger on it. But I think this is as good as the list will get. Here are my goals for 2017!

emoticon Finances

Save money, or spend money more wisely.

How do I measure this goal? Maintain a budget and financial tracker. Track money flow and try to keep the net balance positive.

emoticon Health & Wellness

Exercise: Develop a habit of exercise ... with a partner (Mom) when possible.

Weight: Lose enough weight for my clothes to fit comfortably again. That will be about 10 pounds to start.

Medical: Have healthy cholesterol and triglyceride numbers. I struggle with both!

emoticon Organization

Organize my closet. Donate as appropriate.

Go through the items in my bathroom item by item.

emoticon Pleasure & Personal Enrichment

Read 52 books this year, an average of one per week.

Read the Bible this year.

I received several units from "Great Courses" for Christmas. It's sort of like a college class, only it's self-directed. My goal is to finish at least one course this year.

emoticon Relationships

Participate in more social events

Practice learning to better assert myself: learn to say no gracefully, to stand up for myself, and not to apologize when it's unnecessary.

Let's make it a great year, sparkfriends!

    That's a good list. You can always amend it as you go if you think of something else.
    Read more is on my list this year, too.

    I actually decided to leave my list "open" for the same reason - I'm pretty certain some other growth opportunities will present themselves as I get further into the year!
