I love making huge, shoot for the stars, New Year’s resolutions. This usually equates to them being unattainable, but I make them every year nonetheless. But this year Tyler (my oh so brilliant hubby) came up with an ingenious plan. We created a magnet board which makes us accountable for our goals. We have three individual goals and two family goals we are trying to accomplish. Each day of the week we put a magnet up if we accomplished that goal. The magnet board is staring me right in the face in my living room, which means if I don’t do my goal each day I have to look at the empty space and feel totally lame about not doing it. So here are my individual goals:
1. Eat according to the Body Ecology Diet (this means no flour or sugar…at all). This is going to kick my booty, but I’m doing it in an attempt to get rid of my exercise induced rash (long story, ask me sometime if you’re interested). This goal is only for three months, then I will reassess, and check my sanity level.
2. Read seven pages in the Standard Works (aka scriptures) every day. This means I will read all the Standard Works in the coming year.
3. Do one “out of my way” act of kindness for Tyler every day.
Our family goals are:
1. Family Home Evening every Monday night with a Prayer, Song, Lesson, and Activity. I know, we should already be doing this, but this is to get us consistent.
2. Dinner together every night. I want a really good habit of us sitting down, no distractions, and eating dinner together every single day.
I love the hope that goals give me to change and become better. I’m really pumped about them this year, and I feel that by tracking them every day they just might happen. Here we go!
