Goals for 2012-the time is now.

I know I am way behind on all this "new year, new you" stuff. I'm not much on resolutions, mostly because they never stick. This year though, it's different. I have a list goals that I want to accomplish by the end of the year and continue throughout 2013. I only have 8, which I figure I can manage.


Goal #1: Get Resc\You 501(c)3 status.

Since Resc\You makes zero dollars, it's pretty simple. I'm going to print out the paperwork this month and see what I have to go. I want to have the 501 by December.

Goal #2 Get To Goal Weight

This happens every year. Finally I have a diet that matches my fitness routine. I joined Weight Watchers at the end of last year. I've had to do a lot of changes to things that I ate. Not to sound like I ate pizza every night. I've lost 6 pounds so far this year. I work out 6 times a week, giving me Sunday off.

Goal #3 Be less about me. 

I'm selfish, often. I want to stop that.

Goal # 4, 5 and 6 Be more intentional about relationships

I, first, want to be more intentional about my relationship with God. 2011 left me forgetting he existed in my life. How that year turned out showed me why I can't forget that.

I want to be more intentional about the relationships I already have established. I love love my friends. They are all so unique and different. No matter what we disagree on, be it politically, religiously, or culturally, I love them all the same. They also love me. Some of my friends are making big steps in life, I want to be supportive of that. I know they've had my back too.

I also want to be more intentional about being a friend to people I've met here in Nashville. I haven't put forth a big effort. I need to.

Goal #7 Take more risks

That's a whole other journal entry to come.

Goal #8 Read more, play music, sing more & louder, make more art.

This is a selfish goal, but I need it. I need to remember what I'm passionate about. I need to feel alive.
