Top Ten Goals for the New Year..............

Setting new goals is important and what better time than the start of a new year. What are your goals for the year? 

1. Better Fitness
I am adding swimming to my fitness regime.  Monday was my first swim and it felt great.  So with farm work, riding, a little running and a little swimming, I hope to be fitter than ever in 2013.

2. Saving Money
I am making an extremely conscious effort to save money everywhere I can; cutting out a lot of things this year that I can just do without.  Every time I think I need to buy something, I am asking myself, "do I need this?"  I am surprising myself at all the things I really don't need. 

3. Trying to Enjoy the Little Things in Life
As a perfectionist and the classic Type A personality, I think life should be perfect. It's not and I am working on just accepting many imperfect things and trying to enjoy the little things in life, every day, a bit more.

4. Spending Time with Special Friends
Most of my really good friends don't live near me so it takes a lot of effort to see them.  I am going to try even harder to make a few out of town trips to see my close friends this year.

5.  Keep My House Cleaner

6.  Buy New Make-Up
NARS is my favorite.

7. Plan More Special Dinners, Outside in Summer, By the Fire in Winter.

8. Plant a Garden

9. Read More Books

10. Live By These Words....
