Last year's list.
Now, I must admit that I did not finish any of the books that were on my reading list at the time. In fact, they are all right where I left off back at the beginning of 2010. BUT, I did read a TON of books this year. Good and bad. Joyce Meyer's Love Revolution was one of the standouts. A must read if you are interested in learning how you can show love more often and to more people. I did read some fiction in addition to all my non-fiction titles. However, with the exception of a few books, most were elementary aged books that will end up in the library at my niece and nephew's school.
Isabelle is eating healthier food, and she is eating on a more regular schedule, but I had little to nothing to do with it!!! Turns out she was drinking WAY too much milk everyday and thereby not really hungry when it came to meal times. So.......we cut her milk consumption in half and now she eats. Amazing, huh? I am no longer fixing her separate meals, either. Which, of course, I realize is silly, but Jason and I were used to eating much later than Isabelle wanted to eat and so I usually ended up making dinner twice. Now, we just eat early. Sometimes we wait and do dinner the two of us after the kiddos have gone to bed, but usually we eat at 5:30 pm and avoid the two dinner problem.
Goal #5. grow in my walk with the Lord. Ummmm....Can you ever really say you are done with this goal? I don't think so! This year I am going to be a little more specific with my spiritual goal though, so that perhaps next year I can feel accomplished in this area also. I will say that I have developed a deeper, more meaningful walk with Christ, feel more excited about my relationship with Him, and have seen Him work actively in my life this year more than ever!
Goal #6. and my last goal....
So there you go, an update on my goals from last year! See you tomorrow for my Goals for Twenty Eleven.
In case you are struggling to set your own goals, here is a little motivation:
Proverbs 29:18 (KJV) Where There is no vision, the people perish.
According to a study, 80% of all Americans have no goals, 16% do have goals, 4% have goals and write them down, 1% have goals, write them down, and read them on a regular basis. That 1% will make nine times more income in their lifetime than the other 99%.
