i've been thinking about what my goals are for this year, and what kind of year i want to have. my ultimate goal is happiness.so i've been thinking of ways to improve my (and my families) happiness:
+get completely out of debt (just that final 16% to go!!!)
+build up savings to be comfortable without my income (have enough $ to live 3-6 months)
+become a stay at home mom (or a work at home mom if that opportunity arises and works out well)
+eat healthier. i've been trying to cut out high fructose corn syrup (once i found out there are traces of mercury in it, that kind of made me freak out haha), and it's amazing how it is EVERYWHERE!
+become more organized/less cluttered. moving from a house to a townhouse is definitely going to help in this area!!
+work towards living a greener life. this is something i'm always working on, but i haven't been as active about it these last couple months.
+read more! i got a kindle for christmas, and it is awesome. also, my lovely mother-in-law shares books with me, so i have tons of books to choose from!! i'm like a kid in a candy shop :)
also, i am purposefully not calling these "resolutions", because that term is old. everyone knows people hardly ever follow through with their new year's resolutions (hence all the jokes/memes/ecards/etc). but "goals" are different. they seem more long-term to me, at least in my mind-set ;)
have any of you set any goals/resolutions/ideas/or whatever you want to call them for the new year? sharing is caring! and then you can be held responsible for it later (i feel like theres a word for that, but i canNOT think about it for the life of me!).
