Happy Productive New Year Goal Getters!

I am so happy to begin 2013.  I am excited because I am determined to make this year a very productive one.  As I look back over my life I realize that I have made changes over the years. But  I also realize that a lot of stuff just happened and very few things were purposefully pursued.  Especially lately.  Being the mother of a young child sort of takes over.  And for me personally, just trying to become a mother took every bit of my focus for several years leading up the the birth/adoption of my son.  Now that he is almost 4,  I  am beginning to think about pursuing other lifelong dreams.  I have a  lot of them!  What I know for sure is that without accountability, I will not progress toward achieving any of them.  So,  I am starting an accountability group so that I can keep  moving in the right direction and to help other like-minded folks to do the same.  I am also planning to blog about it regularly.

So, to kick things off, I want to share my guiding phrase for 2013:

"Expressing my love for my family and the community through serving and giving."


So for me, this means prioritizing service to my family and my community. I do both of these things already, but sometimes I do it because I see it as a duty, something I have to do. Now, I am doing it because I want to do it! .  And I can tell you that it is already having an impact in my home and its only been 11 days so far!

I am so excited to see what me and my group of Goal Getters will accomplish in 2013!  Pray for us and wish us luck.

Do you have a guiding phrase or word for 2013?  If so, please share in the comments!

In the meantime, live out loud!
