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.
