I was thinking...

Today something just overcame me and I thought..."I am so ready for some NEW goals, a NEW direction in my life." The thought of a NEW YEAR always excites me and the thought of a NEW DECADE really puts a fire into me. Can you believe we'll be in 2010?! CRAZY, that's for sure.

My husband has been asked to do a talk in church the 2nd Sunday in January on goal setting. Being a business man he is extremely goal-oriented. I think, in part, that's where I got my goal setting craziness from.

Anyways, I've been thinking about what it is I want for my life this year. As my kids grow, I find myself with more and more free time. It's been a sad transition for me yet exciting, too. There are so many things I've been dreaming of!! I've been a writer for most of my life, writing a weekly column for 5 years as well has features for our local paper. While I LOVED both of those jobs writing a book has been an aspiration of mine most of my life. This is the year I'm gonna begin that project. I've had this idea for quite some time and am so ready to begin.

Along with my list of goals for 2010 I've been thinking of my Word. While we're doing a Word a Week here on my Blog, my friend Leanne reminded me I need a Word for my Year as well. Still trying to decide...

What about you? Are you thinking and wishing and pondering your goals for the new decade? I would love to hear what they are...leave me a list and as soon as I know all of mine I'll be sharing them here with you!


  1. I write my goals is a 2010 goals booklet. It is always in my wallet and I review it regularly. It keeps me focused on what really matters to me.

    Enjoy and success!

  2. fun blog! (found you over at Leanne's site) looking forward to learning more about your book!

  3. YEA!!!! Let's write a book TOGETHER!!!! ; )

    So LOVE that idea for the NEW year! As a matter of fact, love the whole post . . . as I, too, need some NEW goals and NEW direction. I'll share my dreams soon (once I figure out what they are!)

    p.s. LOVE the new blog look (font/background). Looks awesome!


I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
