I'm a person who really likes New Year and making new years resolutions. I love to reflect on my life and learn from it and try to do better. I agree with everyone who says that you shouldn't wait till the new year to change your life and I agree with that, but really all in all I have a great life and so the new year is the perfect opportunity to make some goals and reflect on the goals I had last year. The only problem is last year I didn't make them.... or I at least didn't record them in the blog. So I can't really reflect on them... but here are some goals for 2013.
1. Read 12 books. Which at first I thought was not very many, but when I looked at how many I had read the last two year (5 and 6), 12 seems like a really good goal. It's one a month. I hope to blog about most of them too.
2. Go to 5 new places this year. I already have 3 on the agenda: San Diego, Prince George and St. John's Newfoundland. So I think two more should be do-able. Maybe we could go to Jasper or Seattle. Last year we went to two Puerto Vallarta and Spokane/The Gorge, and it reminded me how much I enjoy discovering new places. And I like to add stars to our map of the world. =)
3. Focus more on what I do have and not what I don't have. Of course this is something I believe in my head whole hearty, but it's something I've had trouble practicing in my heart. Whether it's material things or not, I need to work on being happy with this excellent life I have and being happy for others and not wishing for what they have.
This year Nathan also starts kindergarten this year and Lucas grade 3. I'd like to put a waterfall in the backyard. But other then that I hope 2013 is pretty similar to 2012. It was a happy and healthy year. I did lots of fun things and had new adventures and I hope to continue that.
Till Next Time
