On December 31, 2014, I wrote a relatively short blog post on my 2015 goals.
Here on December 30, 2015, I’m writing my notes-to-self about the success of my goals.
My 2015 Goals:
My one word is: gifts.
What I really want in 2015 is: go to Hawaii.
What I really need in 2015 is: to organize and simplify my stuff.
What I will share in 2015 is: my talents and gifts.
In 2015 I will succeed at: reading 12 books.
So how did I do?
In August I gave a brief recap in this blog post: August Goals.
The first goal: Go to Hawaii.
The second goal: Organize and simplify my stuff.
- Not checked off and we’re going to move on from this one…. It’s being added as a more trackable goal in 2016.
The third goal: Share my talents and gifts.
- This one is hard to put into a check/not checked category.
- Over the course of the year, I think I did pretty well with using my talents and gifts although I admit that I used up most of my superpower when my mom passed away. My brother and I threw her a fantastic memorial service, what I believe of “just like she would have wanted” and that time of my life took a toll on my capabilities.
- My husband and I felt like we survived throughout this past year more than thrived, and again, that’s something I want to change in 2016. Stuff got done, vacations were taken, children had birthday parties, no body got seriously hurt, and that in itself, takes talent.
The fourth goal, and what I thought was going to be the hardest: read twelve books.
In my previous blog post to this one, I described the eleven (11) books I read throughout the year. So I didn’t hit the twelve (12) number, but I also didn’t include the five or so small books in that total that I read with my daughter from the Fashion Fairies Series. They’re cute for her age, but really, I just couldn’t bring myself to count them as part of the total.
