Ahhh, January 1st. That magical day that begins another year with the best of intentions. At least, that's usually how it begins for me. When I was younger, I used to make New Year's resolutions more for fun but can never remember a year where I actually followed any of them through to completion. Because of that, I haven't really given resolutions much of a thought for several years now.
But this year I decided to do things differently. I made a small list of a few activities, goals, aspirations--if you will--that I felt were reasonable, achievable, and measurable. And to take them a step further, I'm throwing them out there to be viewed by others for some accountability of sorts. Here are the 7 "objectives" that I landed on for this new year ahead:
• Go on a weekend camping trip as a family.
• Lose 10 pounds.
• Read the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.
• Run 250 miles.
• Post 25 blog entries.
• See how long our family can go without eating any fast food. <-- This one should be very interesting!
• Finally get our children's digital photos printed and put in albums from 2008 through 2011.
Looks like I've got some work to do. Bring on 2012!
Happy New Year!
