Well, if you haven’t heard it enough yet, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I’m feeling very content tonight as I write this. Content in my heart, content in my mind, content with my body, & content with my life. But as the new year approaches I always get to thinking about my goals for the new year. & this years goals mean a little more to me. This year will change our lives forever. We will be getting out of the Marine Corps, moving to Michigan, & their are many important details missing like when we will move, how we will move, if our house will sell here in North Carolina fast or slow or ever, if we will rent here in NC, if we will get pregnant, if our house in Michigan will be livable before we move home, so many “ifs” that if I start to panic it might get ugly. So I’m choosing to not say “what if” & I’m choosing to say “let’s do this”. Let’s not worry, let’s be strong, let’s remain calm, & let’s leave it in the Lord’s hands. & tonight my heart feels so content knowing that He is in charge of my 2014. Even though I am content, I still have goals for myself & I wanted to share just a few of those with you.

Wow. I could keep going. It’s so fun to write out my goals & really think about each one to see how I can accomplish all of them in the next year. I actually wrote all of my goals in my calendar so that I would see them throughout the year & not forget them. Do you set goals for the new year? What is your biggest one you want to accomplish?
