Goals for 2010

It’s taken me a few weeks to think through and prioritize my goals for 2010, but I finally did it.

I wrote out categories for various aspects of my life (spiritual, physical, family, business, etc.) and in each category, I wrote out attainable, measurable goals.

Would you like to read a few of them?

Transition to a self-hosted blog

I’ve got some exciting ideas for this blog.  Something I’ve put off for far too long is to have it self-hosted…meaning I’ll have to switch it over to another template (that’s the big hold-up).  My blogging goal is to make the switch this year…it only opens up more possibilities for sharing greater content with you!

Increase my daily core exercise and weekly running.

It’s easy to improve on my running goal since I’m averaging zero runs per week.  I can only increase from there…just as soon as the temperatures get above 40 degrees.  Running in freezing weather?  Unsafe and ridiculous!  My goal is to do my core strengthening exercises (right here on my living room floor with my son by my side) a minimum of once a day, 4 days per week.

Once it’s a little warmer, I’d like to run twice a week.  I’d also like to enter and complete a 5k by this fall…by then I’ll have time to train and commit!  Anyone know of a great local fall race that isn’t on Labor Day (my wedding anniversary) weekend?

Focus on the moment…and be content

Too often I find myself thinking about the fifty million other things that I COULD SHOULD be doing when I’m doing something else.  If my son wants me to read him a story, I’m thinking about the pile of dishes that just have to get done.  The same is true for work, and I regret not taking my son to the playground at that very moment while the sun is shining.

Whatever I’m doing, I’m going to focus and be completely intentional and present in that moment, and not wish I was doing something else with my time.

I do a lot of online reading, but not as much page-turning.  There is so much I want to learn and absorb about the latest in health and chiropractic, I’d love to learn how to home school in Virginia, and I want to grow in my wisdom and understanding of God and his ultimate instruction book, the Bible.

My goal is to read, study, and meditate through 4 books or epistles of the Bible with at least 1 or 2 commentaries.  I’m starting with John Calvin’s New Testament Commentaries on Corinthians.

YOUR TURN: Would you like to join me?  What are your goals or resolutions for 2010?  I’d love to hear about them!

  1. I noticed the portion in your post about wanting to learn how to homeschool in Virginia, and wanted to invite you to check out the Home Educators Association of Virginia website. We have lots of information on there, send out a free weekly e-newsletter, and have a homeschool convention each June.

    There are free how-to-begin workshops at the convention. If your oldest child is less than 5 years old and you’ve not been to the convention before, you can attend the whole thing for free. It’s a wonderful way to learn about homeschooling! – Katherine
