At 31 December 2012, I hope the following has happened:
-I hope poverty in NZ has started to be properly addressed by the government, in a serious systematic and long term way.
-I want to have ideas or schemes to help people in need in my community. Either new ideas, or being able to help those who already have great plans
-I will finish my degree
-I want to lose a bit of tummy weight so I stop getting asked if I am pregnant
-I want to learn to eat the right amount and the right foods to keep me at a constant and healthy weight - not too low and not too high.
-I want to start to get fit again.
-I want to spend more time with God
-I want to cement our marriages foundations and become a less selfish wife
-I would like us to be able to save enough money for an overseas trip to Europe
-And to start proper budgeting and stick to it
I won't call these resolutions, as they are all things that have been on my mind for a while. But by writing them here, I have clarified a direction for myself, so I don't keep 'wandering' from day to day. A little direction helps us all I think! Living life with no direction and just keeping on keeping on is so easy, but doesn't lead us anywhere purposeful.
What do you have planned for 2012?
