Happy New Year!
It's a new year and a new chance. I love fresh starts, don't you? A do-over if you will. I don't know how News Years became the day we decide to make resolutions for the rest of the year. I'm pretty sure, though, it's because a New Year is perfect for a new chance. I like that.
Did you make any resolutions for the coming year. Or, if you're more comfortable with the word "goal". Whatever you call it. This year, for the first time in a long time, I decided that I'd make some goals AND adopt a word for the year. My first goal will be to make 2012 a healthier year. I know, I know...just like every Monday morning, right? LOL I'm not focusing on "diet" so much this year as being consciously "healthy".
My second goal is to visit more blogs and comment more this year. I want to share the love and promote blogs that have impressed me by either teaching me something, or helping me grow. Hopefully finding others to be my bloggy friend. If you own a blog, and would like a visit, please leave a comment so I can come over for a visit! I'd love to meet you, and if we already know one another, don't let that keep you from commenting. I need a friendly reminder to keep up with my friends!
Third, is to be more regular about posting here. I hope you will look forward to it and come back often, let me get to know you through comments, and build a friendship and sense of community here on Sweet Jeanette. Which will also help me with Goal #2 above.
Lastly, my word for 2012 is Grace. I hope to extend grace more often to others, especially those who I might not feel at the moment "deserve" it. I came up with that word for 2012 after reading an old post of mine about extending grace undeserved. If you have a spare minute, check it out here.
Well, there you have it. My goals for 2012. How about you? Did you make any? Care to share?
