4 Simple Goals

I think it's funny that after missing my self imposed deadlines I came across this blog post by Elsie on A Beautiful Mess about making 4 simple goals before 2011. I'm hoping that I can do 4 but I've been having an awful time trying to complete just 1 goal!

She had some great guidelines (I was all about this after reading #1):
1. choose simple goals that will make your life richer and happier on a daily basis. choose things you may not otherwise get done, but that are not difficult to accomplish.

2. do not choose result oriented goals, choose activity oriented goals. for example.... instead of "lose 10 pounds", choose something like "eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day". get what i'm saying? positive actions instead of just the end result!

3. choose goals that are personal that you believe will truly make your life richer just by doing them! they can be daily, weekly or one time experiences.
4. choose a reward for each goal as it is accomplished! it can be a small or large reward.

5. blog your goals, each one as you achieve it and a big post when they are all finished before the new year! i'll be doing this too! links back to this post are appreciated.

So these are my 4 Simple Goals:

Sunday Project

This Sunday was a recovery day from a pretty jam packed weekend. I went to a friends bonfire on Friday night and they had a live band, Awesome! Then Saturday, I was on the boat most of the day. That evening the boys and I went to a pigroast. The kids had a blast but I was sunburnt and exhausted! Anyhoo, Sunday was calm, relaxing, and still fun. Keys to success right there.

Passed Deadlines

I made a list of things that I wanted to do this summer. Make a dress (currently in progress), have a photo shoot with a friend, make a tent, blog and take pictures everyday in August. <- Yeah... Totally missed that one didn't I?

I brainstormed for a while and wrote down all these ideas of things I want do on the blog. Then the deadline for the first entry, August 1, passed. I told myself "Don't worry self. Just blog on weekdays and take the weekend off." That also fell by the wayside as August keeps on flying by. My revised goal for this month is just to blog more often. So this is me, blogging more often. :)

About Me

My photo
I'm easily distracted by shiny things and brownies. I love autumn and all things associated with it... except raking leaves. I'm a HUGE fan of smiling until your face hurts and laughing so hard milk comes out your nose.
