your turn! won't you share one of your goals for the new year with us?


  • Oh boy, I love all of these!!! Especially the saving money one – we all need to do that! Oh, and listening to God!

  • Definitely a good list. I started a garden last year for the first time and will expand it this year. Can’t wait to get planting! I also started sprouting a couple of months ago because I had to grow something in the cold weather months! Broccoli sprouts are so easy and good for you! http://diydesignfanatic.blogspot.com/2011/12/diy-sprout-your-own-seeds.html

    • thanks for the link, pam! will certainly come in handy!

  • I put my list of aspirations up on my blog today.

    Thank you for blogging, you often bring a smile to my face or courage to my heart. Be blessed!

  • Bonnie,

    I enjoyed reading your reflections from 2011, and this was also really good to read as well. I like approaching the year in terms of goals. I need to practice presence too, that is something I have struggled with a lot (I am prone to anxiety attacks every so often). I always feel much better when I am totally engaged in the moment. Life is sweet so it is good to soak it in!

    Looking forward to another year of reading your blog :)

  • I love these! What good resolutions. I would love to get back into yoga… You never know how sharing your inspirations can inspire others! Thanks!
