Turning over a new leaf

me and my "breast friend" (as she calls me). This is how she looks when she's told "no"

I have been reading about Resolutions, setting goals, and starting afresh. This new year is bringing new experiences with it, but I'm hoping it mostly brings a new me.

I am ready to change who I am. Change the way I am as a wife, mother, friend, sister, daughter, leader. Every roll I assume, I want to change it for the better.

How do I plan to change?

  1. I am changing the way I eat. I have a goal to get up each morning at 6:03am, I know that's a random time, but waking up at an odd time works for me. After I wake up, I plan on doing a daily devotional with myself. Maybe if the little man is awake, then he can get in on that devotional, too. 
  2. After my devotional, I plan to exercise. I have gotten a Zumba DVD that I want to try. I don't know if it will be my thing or not, but at least I will be able to get moving. That's what's most important to me, that I move.
  3. I also want to be a better mom. I need to spend more time "on purpose" with my kids. I need to paint with them, color with them, do puzzles and read books with them. They need to know how much I love them.
  4. I am hoping to develop who I am as a writer. I want to remember what made me love writing in the first place. I want to express myself creatively again. Let myself go when I write. 
What are your plans for the New Year? How do you plan on being the best you in 2011?

  1. I think your goals are great! Mine are to be more patient, do more service, and there was one more...but now I can't remember it. Maybe it was read the scriptures everyday during 2011. Yeah I think that was it! Ha ha. Maybe I should write these down somewhere.
