As you know I have picked Intentions for my word to live by. When I picked the word I wasn’t exactly sure what “Intentions” i wanted so I have been thinking about it in the past few weeks. I want to live my life by these intentions not just this year. I want to mold my life to be what I dream. I am going to list my Intention and then list a goal to achieve it for this year. So let’s begin.
1. I want to be a Quilter and sew beautiful quilts.
I have always been a quilter – since I was 18 years old. This year I want to take it to a new level.2. I want to be healthy and fit.
Goal: Participate in the UFO challenge from Patchwork Times and complete the Block of the Month from Quilting Delight.
I struggle with my weight. Last year I was diagnosed with diabetes. I did really well and lost 45 lbs but then the holiday came and a bit of the weight creeped back on.3. I want to enjoy the monuments.
Goal: Go to the gym at least twice a week.
Goal: During the summer months (May though Sept) – Go on a hike, walk or bike ride weekly.
Goals: Lose 5 lbs a month.
Life can get very busy and you can lose people very easily. I know because it has happened to me. I want to enjoy the moment.4. Be Queen of my home home.
Goal: I don’t have a quantifying goal – but just to remind myself to take tame for myself either through reading, sewing or enjoying the beauty of everyday life.
Currently I live in a condo with my mother. I want to move out and have my own space. I have had to work through a lot of anxiety in the last year on the fincial front. It’s finally possible to do it again and I am scared to fail. The worst that can happen is fail and I have done that before and I have survived.5. Always Dream
Goal: Look at apartments. The more I put it out in the universe – I know it will fall into place.
I am always dreaming. I dream about quilts i can make, things to sew, books to write, furniture to remake, rooms to decorate and ideas to create. I never want to stop dreaming.
Goal: Write the outline and the first chapter of my book.
Goal: Paint a piece of furniture.
Goal: Design a quilt pattern.
I really do believe in the power of goals. These last few years have shown me how awesome I am. This boasts me as I self doubt my self and I should know that I deserve all the happiness that I can make. I have also learned the power of hard work and the results it can lead and I love how my life is so far.
