Goals/Priorities for 2010

I have been reflecting the last few days on the things I would like to improve in 2010.  I must say I am very content with my life.  Of course, there are always things I would like to improve, but overall I am very blessed.  I wake up each day trying to be a better wife, mother and person.  I was looking back at the previous year’s blogs about goals and can really see all the work I have done.   It feels good to know I am making progress.  

 

My priorities for 2010 remain the same……God, Husband, Children, Home

 

GOD – SPIRITUAL LIFE

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Isaiah 41:10

 

Goal for 2010:   Time Daily with God’s Word / Our Daily Bread – Daily Devotional

 

PHYSICAL LIFE  (TAKE CARE OF SELF)

Medically, I have had a good year, with little illness.  But, honestly this is still the area I need to work on the most in my life.  I rarely take time for myself and I spread myself pretty thin a lot of the time.

 

Goals for 2010:

·Continue to go to the Community Center 2 – 3 times a week to run 

·Establish a better sleep pattern – up by 6:30 am each morning/in bed by 10:00.

·Take medication daily to maintain health.

·Make and Take lunch to work daily

 

HOME LIFE  – MARRIAGE, CHILDREN and HOMEMAKING

This year I am going to focus on maintaining the progress I have made with Homemaking.  I have a good system and routines in place, but I just fall off the wagon far more often than I would like to and find it so discouraging.

 

She watches over the ways of her household.- Proverbs 31:27

 

Goals for 2010:

·Complete Bedtime and Morning Routine Daily

·Complete chores daily from the Motivated Moms Planner

·Wash dishes every evening.

 

Remember: Be generous with praise – cautious with criticism.

Motherhood is a privilege, and our children our crowning glory. -(1 Timothy 2:15)

 

FINANCIAL LIFE– (FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY)

We have done very well with living within our means in 2009.Christmas was paid for in cash and no debt was accumulated.  I want to continue this journey with a long-term goal of living Debt Free.

  • Continue Weekly Budget and Debt Repayment Program (Debtproofliving.com)
  • Pay extra towards debt each month.

SOCIAL LIFE (EXTENDED FAMILY/FRIENDS)

As I think of this area of my life, I know this is an area that I don’t prioritize.  Partly this is due to my personality.  I am more of an introvert and a bit uncomfortable in social settings, so I avoid them.   I just love being at home with hubby and the kids.  Recently, I noticed this same thing with my son.  He would rather be at home hanging out with us, then going out and experiencing new social experiences.  I can SO relate to that!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That is a run down of my priorities for 2010.  I would not be successful if I was to think I could accomplish goals in every area of my life.  So this year I will focus mostly on my spiritual, physical, financial life and homemaking.  You might think that it would be easier to just make a list of goals.  I think my thinking of each area individually is helpful in really examining what I want to work on.

 

What are your goals/priorities for 2010????

 

Wishing you much happiness and success in 2010!

  1. “·Wash dishes every evening.” Talk about some lofty goals!!!! LOL !!!!!  Isn’t it good to see progress?Happy 2010!!!

  2. @cherylyn_p – LOL….I know it seems little, but waking up to unwashed dishes really does set the tone for my day.   Then I continue to dread washing them more and more……LOL!!

  3. seems like a very complete plan, and thoroughly do-able! have a great one!

  4. LOL!!  I wasn’t joking!  I was serious!  The dream of having the dishes washed every night is only that – a dream!  I almost always awaken to “the big pots” in my sink, because I lost steam the night before!!!  Go for it, Jen!

  5. @cherylyn_p – You don’t even want to see what my counter looks like right now.  I have a whole day of dishes I have avoided!!  I don’t have a dishwasher so everything must be hand washed and sometimes I just don’t want to do it!  I should be making lunch, but don’t have he room until I do some dishes!  ARGH!

  6. Hi! Nice to get to know you through your goals! They seem very good, well balanced and doable.
