SOURCE:4 Simple Goals Before 2011
The lovely Elsie presented the idea on her blog yesterday about creating 4 simple goals for yourself that are inspiring, activity oriented, and most importantly positive. For example, instead of putting something like “lose 10lbs” you would replace it with “eat more fresh foods”. I think it’s a really wonderful idea, and I’m so very excited to share mine with you. I’m also going to write mine down in the beginning of my journal so I am reminded of them daily.
1. Ride My Bicycle
Last summer my (now ex) boyfriend built me an amazing bicycle for my birthday, however I’m often discouraged when it comes to riding because of the Florida heat. But that shouldn’t be an excuse! I’d like to ride more often in the mornings and evenings, and then begin to bike to work when the weather cools down a bit. Once I get riding more, I’d also like to purchase a vintage style cruiser but I think I should take it one step at a time.
2. Photograph Everything
For a girl who owns 10+ film & digital cameras you’d think my apartment would be overflowing in photos. But that just isn’t the case. For my birthday this year I’ve purchased a digital camera and I haven’t really gotten around to using it. I’d like to photograph everything from beautiful things I see outside to my friends and family. Eventually I’d like to do something wonderful with the photographs like get into scrap-booking or create fun DIY photo projects.
3. Learn Tarot
For some people this might seem a bit odd, but the mystical side of life has always been something I’ve been fascinated with. Psychics, ghosts, nature’s mysteries, I adore it all. Lately I’ve been browsing some different decks at the bookstore and I found a Día de los Muertos version that I really like. I think I’ll pick it up this afternoon!
4. Create Beautiful Things
From a very young age I’ve always been creative, however my issue is that I tend to lack motivation and follow through with my ideas. My brain is filled with ideas but I just need to execute them. I recently signed up for Leigh Ann’s ‘Home Ec’ class which I feel is a great starting point.
I hope you all enjoyed reading mine and I can’t wait for you to share yours!
