New Goals for the New Year

Instead of making resolutions, for the past three years of I have made a list of goals.  For 2014, I accomplished most of my goals.  The unaccomplished goals will be on my 2015 list and I will be adding a few more.

I like to set goals for myself in all aspects of my life to keep me heading in the direction I want to go.  My biggest goal last year was to "dare greatly."  You can read all about it here and here.  I feel like I took some risks in 2014 and I do feel like I dared greatly.  That is definitely something I want to continue with and keep in mind going forward.

While at church after Christmas, the pastor asked us to think about how we would describe 2014 in a nutshell and to think about the role Jesus played.  My 2014 in a nutshell was a year of healing and self-discovery.  Jesus played an active role, particularly in the healing process.  2014 was also a year of "new beginnings" for me.  You can read about that here and here.

I am not really sure what 2015 holds.  This year (in a couple weeks) I turn 29.  The number 9 in the bible symbolizes completeness or finality so perhaps 29 will be the end of one aspect of my life and completing another.  Time will tell.  Either way, I am the happiest I have been in years and I am hopeful that 2015 will be a joy-filled year.

Michael and I had a quiet NYE since he had to work NYE and NY day.  We did toast some mini champagne though!
