2011 Goals

I am so happy that 2011 is upon us and I believe that it is going to be a good year. I am not big on New Years resolutions because I have a major problem with consistency so I am giving myself goals. 2010 was not a great year and I am happy it is over. I have reflected on how horribly I have handled particular situations and I want to make life changes that will affect my overall family… Proverbs 14:1 says “A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands” ….Speaks volumes to me and I believe I have been the primary reason 2010 sucked. I kind of feel that I have hidden behind my excuse of “but I’m a working mom” and I need to make changes in my attitude toward what I really want my priorities to be. I am probably being a little hard on myself but seriously I need to make some changes!!! So here are some of the goals that I have in mind…..
Blog related goals….
1. I would like to have at least 500 followers by the end of the 2011, so I will have to try to get 35 followers each month
2. Start a series called “Make your own Monday” where I try a new recipes and natural beauty regimens…
3. Show more pictures of my shopping trips
4. Most importantly…Get more personal, I want to share more of the craziness that is my life…
