5 Goals for 2015
I love the fresh start of a new year. It always gets me thinking about what I want to prioritize and keep in mind the next 12 months. Past years I've had super long lists, this year I am trying to keep them concise and earnest.

1. Take Time to Make:
This year one of my main focuses is to make time for creating. I'd like to designate a large portion of one day a week to being creative and making art.

2. Be Present:
I'd like to make sure to be present more often this year. Frequently, I avoid times to daydream and reflect by going onto my smartphone or checking my email. Taking time away from technology to let my mind wander and take in my surroundings will help me to be more present and reflective daily.

3. Declutter:
Our home is not super overcrowded, and I've been making good progress keeping our home organized, but we still have a whole lot that could be given away or tossed out. I think I'll be frequenting this year for inspiration and tips.

4. Keep Date-Night Sacred:
These past few months Dominik and I have let date-night slide. We have not given quality time seniority. I know that I feel much closer to him, we have more grace for each other, and are generally more loving when we set aside time for each other.

5. Prioritize Myself:
I know this may sound selfish, but I would like to focus on me a bit more, so that I will be a better healthier person for my husband, friends, and family. This year I'd like to sit up straighter, workout consistently, and eat healthier. I'm hoping all these things will give me more energy and make me feel great!

What are your goals for this year?



Goals for 2014
It's the beginning of February, a great time to set some goals for the coming months.

Dominik and I recently heard that telling someone about your goals and dreams, gives the same wonderful chemical reaction in your brain as accomplishing them, so that is why I am sharing them.

Here they are, things I want to keep in mind this year (in no particular order)
-be grateful
-take photos
-print more photos
-design and make clothes
-keep in touch with friends
-stay fit
-love on my husband
-sit up straight
-cook a new recipe every month
-meditate/journal/take time to let my mind wander peacefully

Last year I was able to accomplish 5 out of 12 goals.  Let's see how many I can be consistent with this year.

The thing I have to remember about goal setting and accomplishing, is that it is about taking these goals, making monthly goals, then weekly, then daily and they will happen.  They won't happen all at once and all the time.
I finally printed out a bunch of pictures of me as a young'un.  This is one of my faves. 

Did you make resolutions or goals this year?  How's it going so far?
