I'm not big on making resolutions ~ let's be honest here, they sound good coming out of your mouth and that's about how long they last, at least for me.
This year I'm trying to focus on making changes or tweaking things in my life.
I've read on a few blogs featuring 100 goals in 2010.
This seems a little too ambitious for me and when I tried making the list it sounded pathetic. I was trying to come up with 100 profound items and I just knew after reviewing my short list that there was no way I was going to be able to accomplish this so called list of goals. It would surly only add additional unwanted stress to my life ~ not the goal I'm trying to achieve.
I want to focus on centering my life ~ not to be confused with self centered!;)
My mother use to tell me that LISTENING is an art that takes many years to develop. I want to become a better listener.
This goes beyond the casual conversation. I want to hear what is being said when a friend is sharing something important, when my teenage son is expressing his thoughts and concerns as well as hearing what I am to be doing in and with my life.
As I look around our home, I realize how very comfortable we are.
We want for no "needs" and many of our "wants" have been granted. This is not the case for many families. One area I want to focus on this year is more giving throughout the year and not just during the holidays.
I am still working on compiling my list for 2010. Once it's complete, I'll share a little more.
Hope you are all enjoying a healthy and bright start to the New Year!
