2014 Plans...

I'm not a New Year's Resolution girl.  I make to-do lists every week (sometimes every day!), but I've never been one to make resolutions...maybe a year view is just too much for my little heart to handle most days ;-)  Last year my only goal (and maybe that's the issue, I'd rather call it a goal than resolution) was to be debt free and to have a 3+ month emergency fund set up.  I accomplished that goal on January 2, 2014.... so close to being done in 2013!

But as I was perusing the internets I found this gem and thought "I can do that!"

A bad habit I'm going to break: Daily Diet Coke.  I did a pretty decent job of getting this down to
            one Diet Coke per day two years ago, but yeah, that's not where I'm at now.

A new skill I'd like to learn:  running a successful Etsy shop.  Does that count as a skill?

A person I hope to be more like:  Jesus?  Is that cliche?  Isn't that what I think everyday?  Whatevs,
            that's my answer ;-)

A good deed I'm going to do:  I'm going to try to listen better to staff & customers and see how I can
             serve them.

A place I'd like to visit:  Well, I think so far on the list of place to go this year are the Cayman 
            Islands, Vancouver & San Antonio.  We'll see if NYC is in the cards for this year as well.

A book I'd like to read:  Lean In - thanks to my dad's Christmas gift I'm no longer on the wait list at
            the library!

A letter I'm going to write:  I'd like to get better at monthly letters to my grandparents.  I did a pretty
            decent job of that last year, but could be more consistent.  And maybe I'll write to my mom
            some too (no promises Mom!)

A new food I'm going to try:  I don't know yet!  Since I'm often researching trends I see lots of
            interesting things, but then usually have my chef make them for me!  We shall see - I don't
            usually have a problem trying new foods.

I'm going to do better at:  not being on my phone all the time.....

Here's to 2014!  Now that all the holiday/birthday partying is over I can think about what's next!

Are you a resolution person?  A goal setter?  Any big goals for the year?
