It’s New Year’s Day when everyone makes their annual resolution and like many I am thinking about what goals I would like to achieve in 2011. I am writing them here in hope that commiting them to virtual paper will bring me one step closer to achieving them. My goal is to be healthier and happier in 2011 and to do this I plan to spend more quality time with family and friends, share more, feel more abundance, slow down, step outside my comfort zone, eat better, and keep exercising. Here’s to it!
February – Be fully in the moment to enjoy and embrace family time during school vacation week. Celebrate my au pair’s birthday.
March – Celebrate my son’s birthday. Support a great cause and join in the fun with the Vermont Adaptive Ski Challenge.
May – Commit to writing 1 personal letter each week to a friend or family member and reconnect with them the old fashioned way!
June – Run the 20th Anniversary Covered Bridges Half Marathon with my husband and friends. Turn 40!
July – Sail to the Islands of Massachusetts for a vacation on the high seas with my family. Enjoy the ocean breeze and living a simple life for a week. Welcome our 10th au pair.
August – Read two classics and write a blog review!
September – Run a fun run race with the whole family. Celebrate my husband’s birthday! Pick one cultural and educational activity for the whole family.
October – Continue my healthy living commitment – exercise 4 days per week and eat (1) additional fruit and vegetable per day.
November – Be thankful for all that we have and give back to others. Identify a local food pantry where my family can contribute our time and resources to helping over the holidays.
December – Write a family newsletter chronicling the year in review. Reflect back on all that was experienced and accomplished. Rest up for another great year ahead!
Put your goals to paper this year too and let me know what you hope to accomplish in 2011.
