Goals for the New Year

Well it's hard to believe that winter vacation is wrapping up.  It's been relaxing and loads of fun.  The first week was spent relaxing and reconnecting with friends.  The second week my brother's family came into town for a week of fun in the sun.  They used to live here and haven't been back as a family for seven years.  It was so fun for them to reconnect to their times here, and for my nieces to reconnect to their old hometown.  Now it's time for me to get back into the swing of things and get used to the idea of returning back to work again.  I've heard that with the winter storm schools in MN have been cancelled on Monday due to extreme cold weather.  I miss having snow days.  Those unexpected days off where you could just curl up indoors and enjoy the snow.  

Anyway, part of a new year routine for me is creating goals and resolutions for the coming year.  So I'm linking up with First Grade Nest for their goals linky.

Here are my goals for 2014

Creating fun, innovative and engaging lessons, that are infused with technology.

For blogging-Blog on a more regular basis, connect more frequently with other bloggers and learn how to create and sell products.

Spend more time reconnecting with friends, and having fun with friends-exercising, dancing, going to festivals and just enjoying time spent with friends and family.

Creating more balance in my life, by taking time to exercise on a regular basis and eat healthier-cut out processed foods, sugars and increase fruits and vegetables.

In the states I'd like to go to San Francisco or New York City.  In Europe I'd love to travel around France.

Eating kale and quinoa.  I'd love to get some good recipes for both so I can try them as well as some healthier foods.

I'd love to learn a new instrument-either the guitar and/or the violin

Negativity-I want to adopt and focus more on an attitude of gratitude this year.  I want more peace and joy in my life this year.

I want to work out more-yoga, hiking and running.  I'd also like to read more.

I have to things I want to accomplish.  The first is to finish the story I've been working on forever.  I'm about halfway through it and I'd love to finish it and get it ready for publishing.  The other one is to create and grow a business of blogging and creating new materials.

  1. I love your goal about eliminating negativity! So much of my stress can be handled better if I just change my attitude about how I react to it. It seems such a simple thing, doesn't it? Good luck!


I love your comments ; )
