Twenty Eleven


Another year has come and gone, and once again I find myself asking "Where did the time go?" In the blink of an eye so many events took place, and it's really quite amazing once you slow down and reflect. 2010 was a year filled with many ups and downs, triumphs and failures. While I feel that I have grown in some ways, I have also taken a few steps back. At the end of 2009 I made a list of goals for 2010. I only accomplished a few of these goals.

However, this post is not meant to dwell on the past, but to focus on the upcoming year.

Goals for 2011

1. Becoming a better Christ follower. I want to dive into the Bible like never before this year, and be more like the wife in Proverbs 31. I want to actually get to know my Savior and have a stronger relationship with Him.

2. Meet my weight loss goal. I know that I say this every year, but this year has got to be different. I will be 25 years old in January, and I'm tired of always aspiring for my body to be better. It's "put up or shut up" time. I want to feel confident in my skin. I don't care what the scale says, I just want to be toned and healthy. When summertime rolls around I want to go frolic on the beach with Keith instead of dreading bathing suits.
3. Get our finances in order. In 2011 Keith and I plan on budgeting our money so that we can pay down our debt, build up our savings, and begin living the way God intended.

4. Score well on the LSAT/Get into law school. I begin hardcore studying for the LSAT next week (or as soon as my prep course materials arrive) and I am determine to put everything I have into this test. I am absolutely certain that becoming an attorney is the calling upon my life, and this test is the first step in getting there.

5. Start saving money for a trip to Italy! Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to go to Italy. I have a love for that country that I cannot explain, and it is time for me to stop dreaming and start doing. If we start saving a little at a time, Keith and I will make it to Italy the summer before I (hopefully) start law school!

So, there you have it! My five main things that I want to happen/change in 2011. I don't know why, but I have a funny feeling about 2011...and I think it's going to be a.mazing!
