New Year, New Goals

It's a new year, and like many people I'm thinking of some of the ways I can improve my life in 2011. It would be nice to make more money have more stuff, etc., etc. But I know for a fact, that none of these things make me happy. I like stuff, sure. I want a house - instead of this 2 bedroom little thing, I'd like a house more appropriate for a family of 5. But the thing is, we're dealing just fine. It's not awful. We have a roof over our head and are blessed beyond belief. So instead, many of my changes aren't pie in the sky, unobtainable goals.  They are lifestyle changes.

  1. I want to have a more serious, and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.  So many times I find myself just complacent and just going through motions.  I hate people like me.  Well, I don't hate people at all..but I don't like that sort of attitude.  That is not a Christian life, that is a fake life.  So I'm deciding to more forward instead of standing still.  No matter how much fear I may have of what God wants me to do, I'm still going to press on.  It's the only way to go.  You can't have a fulfilling life standing still.  You always have to be moving forward. 
  2. I want to loose that last 5 pounds I've been talking about loosing for a year now.  I've doing a great job loosing some weight and then maintaining.  But I need to stay in the gym.  I need to be healthy, because I think it's irresponsible not to be.
  3. I want to create more memories with my children.  Once again, this does not involve going out and getting/doing a bunch of stuff, but more spending time with them and making each moment count.
 I think having goals is important.  I think taking steps to keep these goals is equally important.  Hopefully I'll find a way to take the steps and complete my goals this year, and will make 2011 a year to remember.
