Here are my three goals for 2011:
- Read every word of the Bible in a year.
- Write on my blog at least once a week.
- Leave the Nashville area at least four times.
So far I am fifteen days into daily Bible reading. I have read part of Genesis and today we finish Job. (Until now, I never knew that Job lived before Abraham!) It really helps that Jim is using the same plan so we are able to discuss our reading and hold each other accountable.
I am also on track with blogging. I would ideally like to blog more than once per calendar week, but by doing at least once a week, I hope to record key parts of our family life that I can print out and document for my kids when they get older.
As far as leaving Nashville, it probably seems like a weird goal to a lot of people. The thing is, I love to travel, explore, and experience new things. Jim, on the other hand, is a homebody. He wouldn't notice if he didn't leave Nashville in years. Because I love it and he doesn't, we don't always agree about how to prioritize our spending. But one thing is certain. I cannot go for months at a time without a change of scenery. Deciding to prioritize travel will make me a happier person and therefore a better mom and wife. So far I have one trip planned for February and another one in the works for April.
So, there are my top three goals for 2011. Feel free to check with me in a few months and see how I'm doing!
