11 goals for 2011

A few personal goals for 2011
[inspired by a friend, there's 11 of them... you know, for 2011]
[and no, it doesn't matter that it's actually 2011 + 1 week... because they were written awhile ago :)]

1. Spend time with Jesus daily
in the Word, in prayer, in worship, in nature, embracing His creation

2. Find a job in a hospital
and do a little professional development

3. Pay off my school loans 
yes, this is a lofty goal... but i think it's attainable

4. Put in new carpeting/flooring in our condo
[this is a must if we are ever going to invite people over again :)]

5. Work on our marriage and love my husband even deeper than in 2010
[this is an even bigger must]

6. Take a few trips 
 [possibly Oregon/Washington, to visit my sister, and to visit S&V]

7. Plan our Italy trip and learn a little Italian

8. Try some new [healthy] recipes and make dinner at least three times a week
this may seem rediculous since most people make dinner every night of the week
however, i am not most people [sorry babe]

9. Spend some time crafting and exploring new crafts
and maybe make a few things that are show-able :)
this includes making birthday cards...and sending them on time

10. Exercise. and Be on Time.
these are not related. but both are next to impossible for me to achieve, so they get a combined category

11. Live this passage:

 "Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." 
Philippians 4:4-8


  1. Great goals J. Always good to have a list of things to achieve.

  2. Nice goals! Saw your tweet today, good job being on time. :) I hope you do well with keeping them all!
