Weekly Quote

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." Mark Twain
I think this a wonderful quote to start off the new year. I actually feel like I did sail away from safe harbor last year and I plan to sail even further away in 2010. There are many things I'd like to do this year and many self improvements I will be continuing to work on. I thought I would first list some things that I was proud of from 2009, then list some goals for 2010.

♥ I started my blog
♥ I opened my etsy shop
♥ I ventured into the world of raw food
I started practicing EFT and have been healed of many negative emotions
♥ I lost 15 pounds that I had not been able to loose for 10 years (thanks to the raw food and EFT)
♥ I got my Christmas cards printed and up for sale (they didn't turn out exactly how I had hoped they would, but I did it and learned what not to do next time)
♥ I tried surfing. Hopefully this summer I'll stand up :D
♥ I've stuck with nursing Shane

Now for some goals
♥ Patience, patience, patience. Did I mention patience?
♥ Read more. I like to have a classic and a spiritual book going at the same time.
♥ Focus on making my shop the best it can be. I bought a dress form, so I'll be able to update more often. With three children it's pretty tough to find time to get into the clothes, take the pictures and then update. I think the dress form is going to be a life saver :D
Get my daily prayers said BEFORE blogging. This one has been difficult for me.
♥ Practice the piano at least 5 days a week for a minimum of 20 minutes.
Make learning more fun for the kids.
♥ Organize my house. I figure if I organize one area a week, it won't take as long as I thought.
♥ Work on staying positive.
♥ Try one new recipe every week.
Exercise for at least 20 minutes a day/ five days a week.

Alright, I think that's enough.
I'm really excited to make this year one of continued growth and staying open to new adventures and experiences.
What are some of your goals for this year?
What were you most proud of from 2009?

I look forward to hearing from you!
♥ anne

    Best of luck with all your goals, Anne!

  6. Anne this is such an inspiration. Well done to what you have achieved and the great list you have for this year. x

  7. great goals and great to see how far you came last year! well done. my greatest achievement was joining the gym! mainly because i was so paranoid of ever setting foot into one and i had all these negative assumptions about them. I now realise they were all made up in my head. XO

  9. Good luck with your goals. I try to remind myself of that quote whenever I get nervous over things.

  11. Ooh, I love your resolutions!!! And congrats on your 09 accomplishments! I haven't set any up this year, yet.... the getting healthier (and...hhhh hhmmm- shedding a few pounds) is always a good start! Cheers, friend!!!

  12. The little ones, cute as they are, have the ability to suck the patience right out of you like nothing I've experienced. I used to pride myself on being the most patient person in the world, haha!

    Congrats on your 2009 accomplishments, and good luck with 2010!
