Out With the Old, In With the New!

cute puppy, yummy cheesecake,
naps before the ball drops, some bubbly of course! 

There's just something about the start of something new! Something invigorating about a new year...remembering the good and leaving behind the bad! Being able to set new goals and dream new dreams! It's brilliant really!

What Would You Do If 
You KNEW You Could Not Fail?

I know that New Years is sometimes known for setting goals and dreaming dreams that seem to get lost along the way, when day to day life and what is "supposed to be" takes over. But I think it's important to set the goals and dream the dreams and to do whatever it takes to make them reality, because obviously those are the things you know you need in order to feel more fulfilled and happy! 

2012 To Do List
Be Strongcontinue to work out 6 days a week. This has more to do with how this makes me feel than how it makes me look! I love knowing that I am doing something good for my body, inside and out. 
Capture BeautyI am determined to find something beautiful in every day! And when its something I don't want to forget I'm going to take a picture of it! This will also help me to progress in my love for photography! 

Be CreativeThis is what makes me the happiest and unfortunately tends to get put on the back burner when there are more pressing things to accomplish or you know, the day to days! But I am going to focus on practicing the guitar and learning to sew! 

EMBRACE ChallengesThey are inevitable along the way! So may as well just charge them head first, embrace them, and let them change me for the better! That's what they are there for anyways right?!

Give FreelyI want to help where I can. Volunteer whenever I am able. And to help unconditionally when asked. Or to help when I see someone in need. There really is something amazing that happens when you give of yourself and sacrifice your time to help others.

Be AcceptingSometimes it's hard not to dwell in the past. Wonder how to fix things we can't. I am determined to be accepting of things that have happened, realize they happened not to hold me back but to propel me forward, and let them do just that! I will be accepting of where I am and what I am doing and what makes me happy! I will be accepting of my future and the good things to come and know that this is my path! I will love it! I will be me and I will love me!

Be Productive I will work my B-U-T-T off so that I can make enough money for the trip to PERU next year with my Dad so we can do the service project we have been waiting so long to accomplish! 

Growin all ways. Spiritually. Educationally. Personally. In relationships. Creatively.

Raise a puppyThis is really so that Bella can have a friend!...ok ok that and I just really need to finally do this one for myself! and a little fur ball that needs a good home :)

Bring it on 20-12! I'm ready for you!

  1. The goals and the reasons that your are setting them for our amazing. I hope that you can accomplish all that you want. I shall do my best to help you meet these goals. Goal setting is well taught in a talk given by president Monson where he says "Let us not find ourselves as indecisive as is Alice in Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. You will remember that she comes to a crossroads with two paths before her, each stretching onward but in opposite directions. She is confronted by the Cheshire cat, of whom Alice asks, “Which path shall I follow?”

    The cat answers, “That depends where you want to go. If you do not know where you want to go, it doesn’t matter which path you take.”

    love you ,
