Slow Down, Please!

March 1, 2010

How is it March already?  Where is the time going?  I honestly am having a hard time keeping up!  It seems like yesterday I was celebrating and making goals for the New Year, and today I wake up and IT IS MARCH!   And, I have yet to post my goals for the New Year on my blog!  I have been meaning to, but time seems to be in a race with my to do list, and well it is obvious who is winning that race.  

There is never a better time than the present to catch up on some things though, right?  Including posting my goals for 2010 to my blog.  

Thankfully, I can say that I have either started on or accomplished some of these goals already.  However, there are some that I have yet to focus on, and sadly some of those are the ones that I would consider to be most important.  I have to start somewhere though, and I will continue to grow and learn, and see each day as a new start!  Some of those “new starts” will be slow and wobbly, while others will be steady and well-balanced!  Either way, I will persevere and strive to live out the purpose that God has planned for me!   

Here are my set goals for 2010:
