Happy New Year 2015

I love January 1st and its promise of new plans, goals, habits, and resolutions. (Really, all of those things are the same).

I am still planning my goals for 2015, but here are my categories:

  • Bible study
  • books to read
  • fitness
  • healthy eating
  • homemaking
  • homeschool
  • service
  • parenting
Three books I am reading and/or rereading to help me lay out my goals for 2015 are:
  • Climb Happiness Hill by Alan Bryan
  • The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
  • Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin
I like to have a plan.  I also like to make attainable goals.  For instance, I will not be joining some of the running community in planning to run 2015 miles in 2015.  That is way too ambitious for me!  However, since I do not plan on running a marathon this year, running 1000 miles in 2015 is a reasonable goal for me.

But also……I need to consider pushing myself a little bit.  I need to make sure that my goals are not too easily reached, then I want give myself an opportunity to grow.

Like most things in this life, it's all about balance.

"The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish pulls it down with her own hands."
Proverbs 14:1

"A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs His steps."
Proverbs 16:9
