Goals for the Year

Hello my lovelies. I hope you had a great week. I'm so glad it was a short work week. It was easier to get back into it. 

So I have a few goals for this year. I realised when I look over my goals from previous years they are basicially the same goals. Seeing that made a me a little sad but it has pushed me to really organise myself this year and to work towards them. 


1. Flowers from my gorgeous friend Laura. She also drew the card!
2. Happiness journal and book
3. More journals for the year
4. Journals

I had to add the flowers from one of my best friends Laura. She's amazingly talented and I simply adore her. So back to my list...

♥ To do a letterpress course (there is one next month so I HAVE to do it)
♥ To take care of my body better with a healthier diet, more exercise, to sleep better and to relax more
♥ To be organised and work at my organisational skills
♥ To be more involved with my church (perhaps go to Cambodia on a missions trip)
♥ To do devotionals like SheReadsTruth
♥ To have a handmade business
♥ To put together my creative space
♥ One of my main goals this year is to journal more and to keep more memories

I want to live a more creative life and I need to stop waiting for the right time. When is the right time anyway? I have a collection of notebooks that I'm using to organise the different aspects of my life and I'm using the Kikki.K 2013 diary to write a line (or word) each day. I will try to write updates on these goals (and to keep me accountable) I do have a few more but these are the main ones that I want to achieve this year. 

What are your goals this year?

Those are great goals! I also love your copy of The Happiness Project - so pretty! I really enjoyed that book, I'm actually hoping to read it again this year!

Go Gracie, I think now is the perfect time to follow your creative dreams, I am trying to live in the moment more too! Oh and Cambodia that sounds amazing, my friends went there last year to help build a family a house and had the best time.

Hi Gracie!!

Happy New Year!

My goal? To start a blog! I did that yesterday, finally, with a little inspiration from yourself and many others in the blogging world (sophboat.blogspot.com.au)!

I'm really looking forward to reading more about you and sharing some of my goals...I think I'm being a little overambitious at this stage but I guess accomplishing one already in the first 10 days of the year isn't so bad. Now if only breaking the habit of biting my nails was that easy...
