Seattle New Years Eve 2011

So while we were driving down to Florida (on the day they slept all day), I thought about my goals for the year.   Knowing that I always want to improve in more areas than humanly possible, I also broke them up so that I only have to focus on 3 things per month.

That being said, here are my goals for 2012.

Spiritual
1. More regular prayer time — eventually a time tithe (1.5-2 hrs).
2. More frequent daily mass.
3. Monthly confession
4. Eucharistic adoration
5. Observe first Friday/Saturday devotions
6. Daily Rosary
7. Virtue study

Personal
1. Weekly Night Out
2. Blog as able
3. Regular haircuts
4. Exercise 3x/week
5. Eat healthy

Spouse
1. Love language focus
2. Other love language focus
3. Start monthly date theme

Parenting
1. Cultivate patience
2. Consistent discipline
3. Read aloud more daily
4. Teach when they want to learn
5. Spend more time outside

Provider
1. Keep the budget
2. Keep a cleaning schedule
3. Have enough clothes–not an excess
4. Make house more functional, less cluttered.

Hospitality/Relationships/Character

1. Invite friends for dinner monthly
2. Only throw birthday parties
3. Take interest in others
4. Be more positive
5. Do corporal works of mercy
If you’ve read my posts about A Mother’s Rule of Life, you may notice that I’ve kept the same order of priorities.  I’ll be sharing more blog posts in (hopefully) the same order of focus.  So look forward to more faith and marriage posts this year.

How about you?  Do you do resolutions?

    Very good post. I need to set it in writing. At this time I want to finish a sweater I started last winter. I want to pray the rosary more and I want to get my website up so I can share health and love of God.

    These are great! I will have to really think more about what I want to accomplish this year. I did look into the ‘One Word’ that I heard everyone talk about last year, and I came up with a word for my year: Respect. So, I know that’s my focus, but I think I can apply it to a few of the areas you mention here. There are so many that can be improved 🙂
