2013 New Year Goals

Hmmm...thinking about my goals for the year....
 I thought I'd take a minute and share my 2013 goals with you all.  Many of them are similar to last year.  In some cases, that's because I didn't finish them last year.  In other cases, that's because they were so beneficial that I want to continue them this year!
Happy 2013!!!!
Hope your year is happy and blessed!  What kinds of goals have you made for yourself this year?

  1. They look good! I posted mine tonight, too. :) Now to buckle down, and prayerfully tackle January goals. :)

  2. Sounds great! I think I could write down most of these for myself. I think I am a little afraid to write too many goals for myself. I am such an overachiever. I need to be more okay with letting things happen as they will. There! That can be my goal! Lol. Happy new year!

  3. Goodness, you're ambitious! I'm not sure I could even remember that many. LOL. Happy New Year!

  4. What a great list! Clear and very do-able. Thanks for sharing this encouragement this week.

  5. That was a nice list which you shared. I like how you broke it down into do-able areas of responsibilities. It gives me ideas. Thank you for linking up over at WholeHearted Home. I hope to see you again soon!!
