a List of Goals For 2014

I have been excited for 2014 for a few years. There’s something about the age of 24 that has been convinced it’s when life just gets really good! 2013 was difficult. I am so ready to step into 2014, with two cuties to kiss at midnight. The past few months I’ve LOVED setting weekly goals with Landon. It does wonders for our week and spirituality. My daily schedule that I pinned to the hallway wall is also the bees knees. But I’m ready for some big goals and a master sheet to know if we’re on track.

The concept that I want to channel this year, my word for 2014 is Growth. The world is at my feet. I am cautious of not wanting a life that isn’t mine to have, but there are natural talents and abilities in me that need to be expanded. I am a spiritual creature. I want to grow to know my Savior more. I have artistic desires, but set them aside during 2013. I crave books like I do air, but go too long without. I’m ready for this year to be different, focused and intentionally so.

Landon has been such an amazing example to me with setting an example of Growth. He has a clear vision of what he wants from life, and has started asking for it. He is doing amazing things with his social media accounts, blog, and career pursuits. From his example I now fully believe in living by the quote, “You get from life what you have the courage to ask for.” Where I would stop at x, he asks from life for x times 10, then works to get it. Perhaps in the future I’ll have years where I need to simplify, or do less. But that year will not be this. I want to grow.
