New Year New Goals

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?


  1. Hi Jeanette:
    My goal is to continue to lose weight (I lost 23 lbs. after traveling for four months last summer). I need to lose 50 more and plan to do the work to accomplish my goal.

    I know you'll achieve your goals, too! (and I'll look forward to reading more of your posts this year).

    Happy 2012, my friend.

  2. I really enjoy your blog & love your goals. I have not made resolutions, but I have chosen a word this year as well. It's Gratitude. You can read about it here

  3. I like to your word for the year. I haven't thought about one for this year, but I do know what the conclusion of 2011 was for me and therefor I am hoping for a much better year. I am with you on being "healthier" :)


I love your sweet comments and read them all. Please let me know you were here!
