One thing I have certainly failed at is keeping up with this blog of mine, but worry not, I havent completely abandoned it. January has been a busy one for me, started a new job, been working on some projects, studying, started school, and been occupied with other activities. I know we are well into the new year and I still haven't blogged about 2012, but trust me, ive been meaning to post my goals. It has taken me quite a while to come up with some goals for myself this year. Every now and then I find myself opening up my journal and adding something new to this list of mine. If any of you guys know me, you know how goal oriented I really am. On the daily I write a to-do list and check off as I go, it can be a little much at times but thats just who I am. Anyways, I'm so ready for 2012 and extremely excited to work on accomplishing these goals.
+ Paint more-- i have boxes and boxes of painting supplies and i have loads of ideas stored up. So i really plan to try out new techniques and get more into painting.
+ Play guitar-- i know how to play a few chords, play a few songs, but ive always wanted to be good at an instrument and this is the one for me. I need to practice, practice, practice.
+ Learn how to harmonize--its kinda sad how i can sing but never can i harmonize, so i'll be training these ears to find em.
+ Write more--whether it be through blogging or journaling, making an attempt to express myself more through words. I already journal here and there but i really want to write about anything and everything in my journal. Dont care if its about my banal uneventful life.
+ Get my license-- not my driving lisence but my cosmetology liscense
+ Craft more-- i want to design more things, play with different mediums and such, oh and of course share my crafts and do more DIYs
+Save money-- theres so much i plan to save up for and i really need to start keeping track of my spendings. Use my credit card less, eat out less, and not splurge on things that aren't really necessary.
+Sew-- i want to further my skill in sewing, learn how to make more clothing and especially dresses!
+Reinventing clothes--i am crazy thrifter and with the clothing i usually purchase, i revamp and alter pieces i find into more of a delightful piece. So i'd really like to do more of that.
+Participate in a crafts show-- during the summer and spring, i'd really like to put together a collection of my designs and have a booth to display my work.
+ Reconnect with people-- even though life can be busy at times and tough, i want to focus on keeping my friendships alive. Really reach out to others and invest my time with em.
+ Get down with the buisnazzz-- i am currently majored in business now and im super duper excited to start classes.
+ Photography-- take more pictures of course and develop my skill in photography.
+ Get more involved in children's ministry-- God has really given me a heart for children. I'm currently working with children through Awana but i pray that He will further me in this ministry, to reach out to other kids.
+ Draw closer to my heavenly Father-- this is my number one focus and should always be my priority. My desire is to seek him with my whole heart and be completely immersed in his love. To honor Him, to glorify Him, worship Him, trust Him, and fall deeper in love with my Savior. A consistent spiritual harmony with Him is what I long for. I also pray that God keeps me humble and selfless, to think of other people's needs before my own.
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. James 4:8
So that does it for my goals. I'll probably add to this list every now and then but this will do for now.Hope you guys are excited about this year as much as I am!
