This is a constant goal for me, but especially because I've been in a slight rut with my faith lately. I saw a sticky note in the bathroom at the Gator Bowl on Wednesday that really spoke to me:
Run 14 in 2014
Last year, my goal was to continue running after I completed the Disney Princess Half Marathon. Well, with 3 half marathons under my belt in 2013, I'd say I did just that! My first goal for 2014 is to continue running by committing to run 14 races in 2014! I saw a bunch of people doing 13 in 2013, so I signed up for the challenge through Jill Conyers' website.
Reduce the Clutter
I have come to realization that I am a bit messy. It's not something I'm proud of, and it's making Joe a little frustrated with me lately. So, my goal for this year to reduce the amount of clutter I leave lying around and actually put things away when I'm done with them!
Make a t-shirt quilt
One way I can reduce the clutter is by getting rid of some of my t-shirts. I have SO MANY shirts, but I never want to part with them because they remind of things. Now that my sewing machine is up and running, I finally have a way to deal with some of them: making a t-shirt quilt!
Attend a Conference (or two or three)
I want to attend a conference this year, either for work or for blogging. I love the community of like-minded people, the sessions are always interesting, and I always have a blast when I attend a conference! I've been to a few math teacher conferences in college, but I want to get back in it this year.
Do Something Adventurous
I may just have this planned already, but I wanted to do something that puts me out of my comfort zone in 2014. I'm THINKING that I'll go sky diving out in Seattle with my friend Kristie, but we will see :)
I originally only wanted to set 2 or 3 goals, but I think these are all manageable. I'm already taking steps toward completing most of these, so I hope that I will follow through!!
Question for you: Do you set goals for the new year? If so, what is one of yours? If not, how do you celebrate the new year?
