Mission: THRIVE I

2010 Goals

To thrive, I need to feel fit. I need to feel connected to kindred spirits. I need to be close to my family. I need to enjoy my marriage. I need to create. And, most of all, I need to be close to my Creator.

This year, I want to move to the next level in all of those areas. For many of my needs, there is no objective measure . They are subjective... subject to my interpretation.
I have the freedom to choose. I am going to start simple. I hope to dig deeper and work harder as we go along... but, for now... for today... this is it.

For the month of January 2010 I commit to:
  • MOVE five days a week.
  • Sit with God five days a week.
  • Pay attention to five things a day that make me smile... that I am grateful for... write 'em down... SEEK those things, if necessary!
  • Read the rest of How We Choose to be Happy
  • Keep this Mission: THRIVE working for one more month
  • Keep my intention focused on thriving
Seems simple enough.

I'll be reporting back on how this goes.

This is my first attempt at a McLinky List. Amanda, you will just love the fact that I am having to use the html version. =)

This list will stay open until January 15, 2010. Please feel free to join at any time. I will be doing the Mission: THRIVE the last Thursday of every month. Twelve times we can check in and see how each of us are doing on our missions to THRIVE.

I am excited to see a progress of souls seeking to make it to the next level. Some of you may already be thriving... Some may be just trying to climb out of the pit... For all of us, there is a next level... Join us this year... Let's make it better than it has been.

A goal I have for myself and Jackson this year is for us to read his Bible and pray together each evening before bedtime. I've started this before but have not been consistent because Jackson ends up trying to get off my lap or trying to tear the pages. But I've decided even if he's just sitting near me in his room it's still so good for both of us. Since having him I've spent very little time with God each day and I can't think of a better way to connect with God than to do it with Jackson. I take my responsibility to raise Jackson as a believer very seriously and am disappointed in myself for not reading his Bible with him daily. I believe this goal will make a positive impact on both of our lives this year. He has a 365 day children's Bible that we will be using. We started tonight and he said, "roar" when he saw the lion God made when he made the animals. So sweet.

I'm hoping each month I will be able to share that we are keeping up with this goal. I know I am a much happier person when I feel connected to God.

Dana, there seems to be a common thread... =) Look forward to hearing that your reading is going well in a month!!

I know I'm popping in here late in the year..... but I like your idea for goals in a new year... and with 2011 just around the corner, I might have to borrow a page from your life and try something like this for me in the New year.

Hope you were able to meet them in your own life over the past 11 months.
