Every now and again you need to take a step back and remember what you’re doing here. What are your dreams and goals? What makes you get excited, in that giddy loser smile across your face type of way?

I am flighty.

There, is said it! Well, maybe flighty isn’t the right word…. I change my mind a lot.

I have a hard time staying in one place for too long. So when I feel like my life is no longer moving forward in any aspect, I normally rid myself of that part of life no matter how tough. The problem is that I sometimes regret getting rid so quickly. So I’m trying to change the way I look at things. In order to keep myself happy, I must keep moving forward. In order to keep moving forward, I must have goals to work towards.

I set goals in January, and I think it might be time to have a little check in with how I’m doing.

1. Practice yoga everyday, even if I can only manage a few salutations or a long savassana
-I must admit, I’m not doing the best job at this. I try to blame being tired from growing a baby, but it’s simply a habit that I am not quite there with yet.

2. Meditate every day
– Ummm…. fail. I’ll try harder to suck less at this one!

3. Write something here, every day
– Well, everyday was an ambitious statement I guess, but I am at least getting here once a week or so.

4. Become more active in my local yoga community
– This one is coming. I am making the connections I need to burst into this goal!

5. Record and publish a meditation CD
– The wheels are in motion, stay tuned.

6. Read one new book every month (related to something educational)
– Everyone warned my about how hard this goal was, and they were all right! I haven’t finished my January book yet let alone a February or March book…. ugh… hard

7. Indulge in my new found love of design by sewing, building and painting things for our condo to my hearts content
– This I’ve been doing pretty good at. Looking up little crafts etc on Pintrest and really getting my house the way I envision it.

8. Be an active mom. Take baby to social settings, classes and play dates
– Baby’s not here yet, so I get a pass ๐Ÿ™‚

9. Be a better friend. Accept invitations even if itโ€™s not quite my scene, and make more of an effort to create plans.
– I can honestly say I’m doing a better job with this. Though it freaks some of my friends out.

10. Change for the better. Watch less tv, go for longer walks, paint, visit museums, see shows and continue to live the life that Greg and I have carved out for ourselves. One of culture, health and continual growth.
– It’s getting there, one step at a time!

How are you doing with your 2013 goals?
