I'm not a big believer in New Year's Resolutions. In my mind, they're ideas we impose on ourselves just to break them a week later.

You know the ones I'm talking about - losing weight, not eating XYZ, not watching TV, etc. It seems most center on weight issues, don't they?

But I do think setting goals for one's self or just having ideas as to things we hope to accomplish for the coming time is a good idea. Nothing super solid that we'll mentally beat ourselves for when we mess it up. I mean really - who can go a whole year without drinking sweet tea/coffee/margaritas?

So here are my goals for 2011. They may happen. They may not. Who knows, really? Not me. But still, here they are. (And note, I'm writing them out NOW so that they are clearly NOT resolutions).
  • Share the love of Jesus with everyone I encounter.
  • Attend a writer's conference.
  • Write letters to my elderly relatives and learn more about their childhoods.
  • Finish another novel.
  • Dance more with my children.
  • Travel to Texas (more on that later).
  • Tell my loved ones that I love them more often.
This is not all my goals for the coming year, but some of them - the most important ones.

What are your goals for 2011?

OOOh!! If you travel to TX, you MUST come visit! Please! Pretty PLEASE?!?

I like your goals.

My 1st goal is to make it through my 1st semester of college without neglecting my family.

Great goals, esp the coming to Texas one! I'll keep you accountable on yours if you will keep me accountable on mine!
