New Year

Oh, I just love the feeling of a new year. I am a big goal setter. (That doesn't mean that I'm a big goal achiever, but let's just go with it). I love what a new year brings with it. New calendars, new goals, new everything. I've heard people say that they don't like to set new year resolutions because they know they won't stick with them and they're just setting themselves up for failure.

I disagree.

I love the feeling of goals.

I think I'm that way because of my parents. I have a memory of waking up very, very early one New Year's Day (was it New Year's day, family?) and going with my parents, brothers and sister to our church building. We went to the high council room, which is just like a conference room with a big long table and white erase boards. My dad sat us all down and told us that we were going to write out our family mission plan. None of us except for my parents were very enthusiastic about it, but we did it. We also always had a special new year family home evening where we wrote out all of our new year resolutions. It's good stuff that goal setting business!

I have a few resolutions for myself this year. I'm not going to put all of them specifically on here. Maybe I will at the end of the year and I'll let you know which ones I accomplished. You can probably tell that blogging more often is one of them. I wrote down how frequently I want to blog and hopefully I'll be able to stick to it!

Wish me luck!

I have a few family happenings to catch up on so be looking for those. In the meantime, here's a cute picture of the little ones.

WHAT a sweet picture!!

I'm with you on the new start/goal setting. I love going to bed at night after a bad day thinking, "tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it" Isn't that a Green Gables quote? Anyway, good luck on your fresh start. I will love reading your upcoming posts!:)
