How is everyone doing on their New Years Resolutions?...
Well, I decided it was time to take a look at Chad and my resolutions to refresh my memory on everything we are suppossed to be focusing on this year. I am pleased to say we are making progress in several areas - not only on this years goals but also on our lifetime goals. There were a few resolutions that we are totally slacking on and need to get on the ball - but that's ok! I guess we just have to do our best to stay on track despite the many distractions that life throws our way daily. I put stars next to the ones we're making significant progress with,.. those without stars are the ones I'm going to start focusing on more. So - how are all of you doing on your goals, dreams and resolutions?!
This is the list I made on January 1st:2007 New Year Resolution:
*** 1.) Create a successful business on the side while Chad teaches so that he can eventually quit teaching and run our business full-time.
***2.) Chad has a goal of losing 30 more pounds next year and I would like to gain muscle tone back
***3.) Continue to pay down our debt (HU loans and pay down mortgage)
4.) Pray over Shep and Rauly every night while they're asleep...specifically for their protection as well as their future.
Life long goals and dreams:
1.) Be completely debt free (including mortgage)
***2.) Be good examples to our children in all aspects (spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, financial)
***3.) Raise children who are strong in their walk with the Lord and who in turn will continue a legacy of faith throughout generations to come.
***4.) Have time and financial freedom by being successful business owners.
5.) Travel to Europe, Hawaii and every state in the US - go on 1 cruise and travel to Atlantis. Go skiing in CO!!! (Yeah I know, we'd better start travelling now - but we have to meet our debt free goal first and so it may be a while!)
