Wow January 1 has arrived! It's that time of year to set goals, aspirations, hopes and dreams down for the upcoming year.
My first goal is to get more fit. I intend to start running. I love being outdoors and our neighborhood is great for walking, but that's just not enough exercise. I purchased some running shoes and have done some research on how to get started. I've even done my first day!
I aspire to do at least one 5k race this year as a result of my goal.
My second goal is to find a new day job. I have already begun sending resumes and have beefed up my wardrobe in preparation for the transition. I am a little scared about this decision, but serving tables, though I mostly enjoy it, isn't as stable an income for the shifts I'm able to work these days. If I have to be at work I'd really like to make some money.
I aspire to find a job at a larger company with growth potential.
My third goal is directly related to the second. I'd like to start a savings account and to pay down some debt. After I obtain the job I'd like to put 5-10% in savings.
Lastly, I aspire to be the best wife and mother I can be for my family.
My hopes and dreams for the year all focus on finalizing the adoption of our daughter. This matter and its timeline are completely in God's hands.
May 2013 find my friends and family happy, healthy, and prosperous and may God continue blessing our home and family.
Happy New Years!
