Goals for 2013

Well, Goal Party 2013 is a wrap! My friends and I got together Saturday night (after watching what I must say was a shocking and devastating loss to Butler) to commit to our goals for 2013 and to review how we all did in 2012.

The tradition is to drink port wine and eat a very special cheese, called Stilton, which goes especially well with port (but is also especially stinky). As we (Karen, Dan, Jabez, James and I) went around the table reading our goals from last year and explaining if we reached the goal or not (and sometimes why), I couldn’t help but feeling incredibly proud of these people who I call my closest friends. Whether we failed or not at some things last year, the fact that we even sought to create a ritual like this and commit ourselves each year to be better, is really a wonderful thing…I LOVE that I have friends like this!

 

While last year, I really only had 1 goal, this year,  the pendulum swung the other way completely for me, and I filled an entire page pretty easily. As I described last week, my hope is to create goals that are timely, so my goals were written out quarterly. This will hopefully keep me on track and really striving to propel myself forward throughout the year, without dwelling on setbacks…always moving forward, forward.

I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a pretty exciting year (pay special attention to the 4th quarter of the year 😉

What did I tell you?! This year is going to be kind of epic in the Stevens’ house! (And no, this is not an official announcement of anything…just the hope for the future!) James made a short and sweet list of goals that he will totally make happen! Karen, as usual is working on goals that make her a better mother and educator and I have no doubt she will rock her goals out this year! Dan, whom I admire for so many reasons, has almost as long of a list of goals as I do, but he is crazy motivated this year! And Jabez is making things happen this year like nobodies business! This year is going to be GOOD…I can just feel it!

Thank you to everyone who shared their goals with me! I know each and every one of you can accomplish them! Let’s commit to commitment, shall we?! The winner of the giveaway is…

Megan Kathleen!!

 

Cheers to 2013, friends!!!
