Faith, Faith, Flour, & Sawdust

Goals for a new year

My personal purpose statement: My personal purpose statement is to be a wife, mother, and friend who is curious but not judgemental, passionate about life, who lives a life worth being proud of while helping and cheering on those around me, and who always remembers where she came from.

Faith – My one goal in faith this next year is to grow my relationship with God.

Where am I in my faith on a scale of 1 to 10? I would have to say I am on about a 6.

How did I get here? Well, 2 years ago I really had no relationship with God other than I knew he was around when I was ready. Now I am going to church, I am saying a daily prayer, and I am showing him to my children.

Are there any lies I have believed in this area? Maybe that the church I grew up in was the only church for me, even if it didn’t fit or feel right.

Family – My one goal for the family this year is to make the most out of the time we spend together as a family.

Where am I in my family on a scale of 1 to 10? I would say a 7, maybe a weak 6. How did I get here? We are doing more family dinners.

Are there any lies I have believed in this area? It would have to be that we need to be the perfect family, that my friend doesn’t exist!

Fitness – My one goal in fitness this year is to walk more in my free time.

Where am I in my fitness on a scale of 1 to 10? I would say a strong 6!

How did I get here? I told people my plan and they are holding me accountable.

Are there any lies I have believed in this area? I thought it would be easy but it is really hard to walk 8 miles on those two days.

Finances – My one goal in finances this year is to really look at the things I buy and decide if it is really worth spending the money on it.

Where am I in my finances on a scale of 1 to 10? Maybe a 5!

How did I get here? I do take a strong look at what I buy and ask myself is it really a need or a want. I have lapses.

Are there any lies I have believed in this area? I thought I could do this cold turkey and it is not that easy a slip and buying a latte one day and you get what was I thinking!

Friends – My one goal for friends this year is to strengthen my current friendships and always be willing to accept new ones.

Where am I with my friends on a scale of 1 to 10? I would say a strong 7.

How did I get here? I am trying to be a better listener and not so much a talker. Trying to take in what people say, not just thinking me, me, me.

Are there any lies I have believed in this area? Relationships are hard and this is not easy

Future – My one goal for the future this year is to be a more positive person and not dwell on the negative.

Where am I in relation to my future on a scale of 1 to 10? A decent 6!

How did I get here? I think by pushing out the negative thoughts and thinking twice before saying most things.

Are there any lies I have believed in this area? I always believed that you needed to treat people in a harsh way to get them to respond.

Fun – My one goal for fun this year is to enjoy my time on this earth because none of us are guaranteed tomorrow.

Where am I in having fun on a scale of 1 to 10? I am maybe a 6!

How did I get here? I think I have had a negative outlook for so long that I forgot to enjoy the little things and just laugh.

Are there any lies I have believed in this area? Not sure!

So, how are you coming on the new you? I would love to hear.
