My 13 Winter Goals List

    It took me some time to decide exactly what I wanted to focus on this season.  I think that is better for goal setting though than just throwing together some goals.  After thinking about it I realized that I really wanted to work on things that would make me happy.  Almost everything on the list will make me happy.  I am not sure if I will like yoga, but do we ever know if we will like something we have never done before.  Number six scares me and I know it will make me happy when I finish it.  I will likely enjoy it while I am working on it too, however it frightens me at the moment.  Hence it is my difficult task.  I think I would like to have a third draft done of the project by the end of 2014.  And that scares me even more.

    Number five follows in the thread of dreaming of decor.  I have been living here for some time and I have only decorated a little bit.  Now armed with a stool all I need is to assert myself.  For number four I'd like to donate some money to a cause.  I am not sure which yet, but I will keep a pot till the end of the season.  A friend introduced me to a savings challenge where you save for a full year putting one more dollar in than you did the week prior.  For that challenge you end the year of saving with $1,378.  If you use the same method over 13 weeks you end with $91.  That is a respectable donation I think.

    Number one is fairly open.  I simply want to make more time for crafting and working with my hands.  So I am going to try to craft at least five different items.  I am going to keep my toe nails painted, because it makes me happy.  They are gold right now.  I haven't decided what color to make them next.  I certainly look forward to frolicking with my fellow lolitas more.  And the end of winter and beginning of spring have a few events I love to go to each year.  This list makes me really happy and aside from the writing goal I don't think it will be too tough on me.

    I will be keeping track of my list over at the Day Zero Project site.  Here is my profile.  If you have a profile there just friend me and I will friend back.  I love to cheer people on with their goals.  Have you made a list of 13 Winter Goals?  If you missed the post about it or need a refresher here is the post on how to make your own list.  There are 12 weeks of winter left.  Let's make them awesome and productive.
