It’s Monday and that means it is Monday Mingle time. This blog hop is hosted by Funny Postpartum Lady and Story of a Girl. Each week offers a new theme with questions to answer. Link up your blog and then go check out other blogs. This week’s theme is: Goals
1. Do you believe setting goals are important in life?
Absolutely. Goals are set out for us from the day we are born. Development milestones, going to school, etc. I believe everyone has goals and these goals give purpose and meaning to our lives. I set several goals. I have daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly ones.
2. Do you set time tables for your goals? If so is there one goal you are determined to meet in 2013?
There are some goals that should be set on timetables otherwise they will never get done. Some goals are more open ended based on circumstances. For me getting out of debt was my goal for Dec 31 (with the exception of student loans). I managed to do it, however if I had had my baby last year instead of in February I would have had to be more flexible with completing that goal. My goal for 2013 is to drop the remainder of the baby weight and get a 1/2 marathon under my belt. I’ve run 2 in the past and several 5K’s. I was in the middle of getting back in to running when I got pregnant.
3. Are there any past goals that you are proud to announce you have met?
There are a couple. I ran a half marathon and didn’t die. I had a healthy baby. I lost 60 pounds (but then gained it back)
4. If you have children, are you teaching them about, and helping them make goals for the future?
I have a 6 week old. For now goals consist of sleeping for longer stretches at night, hitting developmental milestones, and staying healthy.
5. Do you have a bucket list? have you started to work toward any of the goals on it yet?
I have a visual one started on pinterest that you can see here. Owning a home is a bucket list item that will hopefully happen very soon in our lives. I definitely don’t do things in order that is for sure. Some of the items I may never get to do, but it doesn’t hurt to dream or to try.
