Hello 2014… Let’s Get it Started, Stop Slacking and Make it Happen!!

I’ve reflected on 2013 and have to say it wasn’t a bad year it was actually a good year. So many new things happened to us. We moved to a new house, Anya started a new school, I started a new job that allows me to work at home, I’ve been active at my church and Anya’s school, had great parties for Anya, plus I had opportunities from Grace Hill Media to review movies and interview the very sweet Pattie Mallette (Justin Bieber’s mom), became an affiliate with Bouqs, was in the top 25 single parenting blogs for Circle of Moms, and just found out that Earnest Parenting is listing me as one of their top picks for single parenting blogs!! Yes, 2013 didn’t treat me to shabbily. Of course there were challenges and heartbreaks, but it wasn’t bad. So what do I want to do in 2014??? Take a look…

Send out my book proposal again.

I have published over 938 blog posts and that doesn’t include the articles I wrote for Moms of Faith and Inspired Women Magazine along with a few other publications! That is a lot of words I have put out into cyber world and I’ve enjoyed writing every post. I love to write it is my passion! Writing is what I want to pursue as a career. Sure working from home is great and I am grateful for my job, but I want to actively do work that my heart is in, I want to touch people with words and share stories. In 2014 I want to get serious about trying to get my book published and maybe a few eBooks. I have a wealth of articles to pull from so why am I not doing it? Why am I not pursuing what I am sure is God’s purpose for me? There is no good reason! I don’t want to wake up complacent I want to wake up and say, “God work through me, let me be your instrument!” That is how I want to begin each morning.
Post my creative endeavors in my Etsy Shop
If you follow my blog you know I love a DIY! I can’t begin to express the joy I get in creating little lovely things! So I want to be more proactive in putting my creative endeavors in my Etsy Shop. It will mostly be goody bags, but we’ll see!
Read the Bible in a year
Ah, I love the scriptures. I want to really dive in and get a deeper knowledge of the word.
Record my favorite scriptures for Anya
I often speak about passing on a spiritual legacy to Anya. One of the ways I want to do this is recording my favorite scriptures and putting in a little note after. I started, but have waned so I want to continue this little love letter to my sweet girl.
 I’m keeping my other goals simple:
  • Get to the gym at least 2x a week or more
  • Continue to strengthen my relationship with God
  • Be attentive and present for Anya
  • Learn how to make Miso soup and sushi
  • Take a multi vitamin a day
  • Host a housewarming party for my dear friend
  • Send more handwritten cards
  • Create more order in my life and home
  • Host more gatherings
  • Start a magazine for single moms of faith (wouldn’t this be great!)
  • Be more patient
  • Continue to carve out time every day for bible and prayer
  • Volunteer more
  • Rest and play more
  • Write at least 4 posts a week
  • Be a better bunny parent
  • Take more road trips
  • Read one book a month and do a review
  • Save money and pay off some debt
  • Clean my car!
  • Plant a small garden
  • Be outdoors more
  • Smile and be more lighthearted!
Life is good isn’t it! Everyday s an opportunity to fulfill our dreams we just simply have to take the steps to make it happen.
