Happy Thursday, friends! I am so excited for today!
Today is Jenna and I’s very first link-up for our new monthly link-up, Share Your. I am so excited to read everyone’s post today! If you are linking up with us, don’t forget to use #shareyour2019 on IG.
Today we are sharing our goals/resolutions/or where you see yourself in 5 years.
I don’t really do new year resolutions anymore. I found that when I made a big list for the whole year, I wasn’t very good at sticking with it.
However, I have TWO major things I want to focus on throughout the whole year, so I guess you could say they are New Year Resolutions.
My first one is reading my Bible more. I have been HORRIBLE at this lately! God has really been convicting me of not being in His word. I have realized that it doesn’t have to be complicated or hard to read the Bible. I just need to DO IT! If I can spend my time blogging and surfing social media, I can definitely read my Bible.
Secondly, I want to get HEALTHY! I am not overweight, but I am very out of shape and unhealthy. I eat horrible, snack all the time, and I haven’t worked out in a very long time. This needs to change!
Last year, I did monthly goals and plan to keep doing that this year. Makes it easier to focus and achieve the goals for me.
Here are my monthly January goals:
- Complete the Daniel Fast
- Exercise 4 times a week
- Get Max a shock collar and train him to not jump up on people
- READ my Bible EVERY DAY!
- Read at least 3 books
- Learn how to Pin a blog post
Lastly, where do I see myself in 5 years? This question is a fun one!
Honestly, when I think 5 years into the future, I get a little weapy. Elizabeth will be 17 and Emily will be almost 16!!! WHAT?!?!? To top that off, Chris will be 40 and I will be 39! WOW!
I hope in 5 years that Chris and I are still living in our current house. (we have a tendency to move every 2 years.) However, I hope we stay put in this house and this is the house the girls remember growing up in. I love the space it offers with the basement and extra rooms.
I also see us in 5 years with all of our student loans paid off and owning property in our hometown of Doniphan. Chris and I would love about 40 acres over there to retire on someday.
I hope that the girls are happy and healthy and loving life as a teenager and Chris and I are there to support them in whatever they want to do.
I see Emily being a good basketball player, Elizabeth being a cheerleader, and both girls loving the game of volleyball. I also hope Emily learns to use her talent of singing more and isn’t afraid to sing in front of large crowds. And that Elizabeth continues to rock diabetes!
Lord willing, we might even have another child thrown in the mix with foster care. I would be okay with that as long as it was a good fit for our family. This is something we definitely pray about every day.
I hope in 5 years I am still teaching 8th grade math, but I see Chris being a principal and/or superintendent. Maybe not in 5 years, but one day I hope he pursues this because he is EXCELLENT at everything he does!
Who knows what the future will hold? It’s fun to dream and have wishes that you think will happen. Whatever we are doing, I know we will all be together and loving life.
What about you? What are your goals or resolutions for the new year? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I look forward to hearing from you!
