  1. Goals, I have goals. Read through the Bible using a Chronological Bibile this year (well actually at least 1/2 the Bible).

  2. Wow that’s amazing congratulations! I never really make new year resolutions, they don’t really make much sense to me, but during the year I guess I make goals, for instance something might happen, an event or a conversation that will prompt me to decide I want to go on holiday, take a course or do race for life. So I don’t make new year resolutions but during the year I set myself goals that mean something to me so I am more likely to reach or fulfil them. Happy new year. 🙂

  4. I do not laugh at those who make resolutions. I am just not that great at making them and then keeping them. I just try to be the best person I can be for that day. I am going to try to be a better person to myself though this year.

  5. this year’s goal: talk, teach, type LESS; listen, love, learn MORE.

  6. Hey Melissa! Goals for 2012…Get back on track with eating a whole foods, plant based diet with minimal oil and sugar and no dairy or animal protien. Also, I am reading the chronilogical Bible through. Other goals will be related to both of the above…lose excess weight….and serve others every chance I get putting God first, others second, and myself last!

  7. One of my goals is to fully break a pony. I got him started under saddle this past fall, but was injured and had to stop working with him for awhile. As soon as spring hits, it’s on!

  8. side note: I was injured by a car, not the pony.
