2014 Resolutions

Happy 2014! 
6 days late!}

Each new year brings about the age old question: To create resolutions or not?  Or what goals do you plan on making for the new year, and how long do you plan on keeping them?  I have tried the last couple of years making resolutions/goals, and I have even tried disguising them as something different other than resolutions.  Regardless, I don't think I am even batting 500 on any of my resolutions/goals. 

So with the new year I debated whether or not to make some promises to myself that I may or may not keep.  Sure there are things I want to try or do, new experiences, self improvement, but I also find myself in this weird season of life and I think when I get to this point, or at this time, I will do A, B, or C.

So I am still up in the air with actual firm set resolutions, but I do have some things I would like to work on, improve upon, and do.  So, I guess maybe I am setting goals, hmm...

Here it goes...

1. Donate my hair...I have been growing my hair out for over 1 year to do this.  I am so close, and I am so ready to chop it off!

2. Run another half marathon...I tossed around the idea of doing a full, but I want to do another half first, then maybe a full, or run 2 half's and that's like a full.  I need an actual start to finish goal, and this is it for me.

3. Read more books...I am an expert at children's literary choices, but I need some grown up books in my life, too.

4. Display the fruits of the spirit daily...My girls look to me for everything, and they are especially watching how I react to situations.  So I have a huge task in showing them how to respond in a Godly fashion.     

I could think of a lot more I want to do, work on, and get better at, but why over do it?  Less is more, right?!

We did goals with Molly yesterday {we are a very timely family!} and she came up with hers all by herself.  Eric and I just helped her define and refine some of them. 

I am actually pretty excited to help her achieve all of her 2014 goals. 

So here's to a great 2014, goals or no goals, resolutions or no resolutions!
