Last year I posted my Eleven for '11 goals for the year. Today I'll revisit them...tomorrow, or later this week we'll work on Twelve for '12!
1) Do first the things that only I can do.
I think I have done a good job realizing I have to be a wife and mom first and everything else falls into place after that. The roles that only I can fill I have filled, the roles I've needed help filling I've asked for help. It will always be a work in progress but I'd call this a success!
2) Do the things I KNOW I am called to do.
I specifically mentioned leading teen girls in Bible study which I am doing on Monday nights right now! I love it! Success.
3) Keep a clean home.
Much better this past year and continuing to improve. I'm working on re-purposing before purchasing and throwing away before hoarding ;) And you'll be glad to know my stack of computers (4 CPUs and 2 laptops) are now gone. Success.
I am still a terrible pray-er. I need more work on this!
This came up a couple times through the year but I have not successfully accomplished anything.
I did not take a class or learn anything new. Still need to work on this!
7) Personal time
Sort of. I don't have a lot of carved out personal time but I am spending the time I have a bit more wisely. Sort of success?
8) Financial Support
Epic fail. We just received our "year end" account statements. I am not anywhere near 100% of our financial support.
9) Appreciating my husband
Success. He is such an awesome guy and works hard for our family. I have tried to both tell him that and show him that this year and I think I accomplished that quite well.
10) Find a mentor.
Not in the sense I had in mind, but I do still have friends who are just not that impressed with me and willing to keep it real :)
Do we ever really accomplish this? I would say yes, I am known by my love but I certainly have my moments and have a long way to go!
So much fun! I jotted some notes during church yesterday of some goals for this year so I'll try to get those up here soon!!
Thanks for your friendship in 2011!
