It’s 2010. Only just barely though, and I am already having trouble with trying to put too many zeros in 2010.
So happy 20010 or 2010, whichever you prefer.
I am not exactly sure what to ask for from this new year. I have put a lot of thought into what I would like this year to hold for me but my thoughts haven’t really organized themselves around any certain sets of goals or priorities. Actually lately my brain can’t seem to organize itself around anything more than sleeping, eating and reading, but that is beside the point.
It is interesting that the new year signifies a new start for so many people but so far just a few days in 2010 feels a lot like 2009. It’s like birthdays, no one ever magically feels older or any different than they did the day before.
Am I way into new years resolutions? No, not really. But I do like to set goals to keep myself moving forward so it only seems fitting to set out some goals at the start of each year.
To help get my brain into gear I looked at my goals for 2009 and not to sound cocky, I did a pretty good job on them, although I couldn’t remember what any of them where until after I pulled up last years post. So really, I think we are safe in saying that it was luck and safe goal choosing that helped me succeed and probably not total focus and dedication.
I like succeeding and I consider 3 out of 5 success. You may see that as only a 60% but I see it as a 60%! So I figure why not stick to that safe matrix while putting together my goals for the coming year?
I have been feeling pretty motivated when it comes to gym time lately and I am really hoping to keep that up. Luke, has already shared his opinion that I need to set a fitness goal to keep myself interested and working towards something. A fitness goal?!
Since “keep working out” is probably too broad I have been thinking about running. I’m not much of a runner but I think this year I want to try to run a race. Race is about as much detail as I want to go into because I’m not sure if that means a 5k, a half marathon, or racing a toddler around the block at this point.
I finished up 2009 getting to meet some fun women/bloggers and I would like to meet more of you this year. Maybe at a Mile High Mama’s Night Out event, BlogHer ’10 or maybe Bloggy Bootcamp. Maybe. Airfare may get in the way of most things but maybe if you all spread the word that I have ad space just waiting to be filled over to the right at very reasonable rates—> this goal could be fulfilled. If all else fails we could always meet up for coffee.
My third and most important goal is to remember that my evolution is not complete. 2009 gave me chances to learn and grow that I never expected and while I can’t guess at what opportunities 2010 will hold I can try to focus on taking advantage of every one of them. I am not the same Evolving Mommy that I was a year ago but I am most definitely still a work in progress.
I still am, and always will be, The Evolving Mommy.
Are these goals doable? I hope so. What are you hoping to get out of 2010?
