At this time of year its absolutely expected that my mom will begin talking about her new year's resolutions. And, it is sure that she will be repeating to Josh her favorite phrase, "a goal not written is merely a wish."
I don't think we've missed a year where weight-loss has been the number one goal. In fact, for the past few days or so all I have heard as we have been surveying Fort Worth eateries and having dangerously delectable meals is, "this is going to be one of my last times to eat this." Whats funny to me is that we're by no means heavy-set people. My moms 5'2 and 116 and she thinks she's over-weight!
This year I'm doing my goals a little differently. It has been said, It doesn't really matter what direction you take, if you don't know where you are going. I have a pretty good idea where I'm going so all my goals are geared to get me there. The destination? Nursing School by January of 2012. While I also have other places I'd like to be, this one is the top priority, at least I think it is in reference to my future. So what does this mean? More efforts on studying because if there is anything thats sure, its that me and science are as different as oil and vinegar. But, I also know if I take care of the important things first, and also prepare myself spiritually, it will all fall into place.
