2013 Goal Recap

Tomorrow is the last day of 2013! Can you believe it? 2013 was a year of fresh beginnings for me. It had its ups and downs, but 2014 will without a doubt be the best year yet. I always believe that no matter how good or bad the past, the best is always ahead.

Every year on January first, I take the day to reflect on the past year and set new goals for the upcoming one. I shared many of my 2013 goals with you last January. All my goals were set at a point that was almost unreachable, but my motto was: I would rather shoot big and not make it than aim small and stop with something less than my potential.

In 2013 I wanted to….

Read 20 books:

      I didn't think I was going to make this goal but I pulled it out over Christmas. I actually read 23! I 
      read countless amazing books and you can check out my reviews on some of the books here.

Write encouraging letters to friends and send them through snail mail.
     I could have done better on this goal. I did this way more often than I would have had it not been a 
     goal, but its something I wish I had done even more often than I did.

Bring 20 people to church

      This was probably my biggest fail, but this was also the loftiest goal I set. Stats say that for every 10   
      people you invite to church, one will come. That means I would have had to invite 200 people. 
      Unfortunately, I didn't invite that many people, but the goal did force me out of my comfort zone  
      and to invite people more often than I would have. So the actual goal was a miss but the point of the 
      goal was a success.

Make healthier decisions

      Weeeeeeeell….I could work on this one a little more. I did take the initiative and worked out more 
      in 2013, but I could certainly use some improvement in this area. Working out, being sore, and 
      eating grass is just not my jam. But I will try……maybe.

Memorize 20 scriptures

      Check. If only I could remember their references.

Complete at least 6 DIY projects

     This was probably done by March. I did a ton of DIY projects this year, especially in my remodeled 
     study. You can see some of my other fun projects from the year here.
