No Goals

A lot of you are writing lists of 101 goals in 1001 days. It seems to be the thing to do if you have a blog. I have thought about this a little bit, and I will not be participating. I have a big problem with trying to do too many things at once. For instance, last week I got it in my head that I needed to make cupcakes. So, after working a full day of work, I picked Charlotte up from daycare, went to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients, came home and began mixing cupcakes while Charlotte played on the floor. Why wasn't I playing with her during that time? Why did I feel the need to bake cupcakes in the middle of an already very hectic day. This is just one example of something that I do A LOT lately - it drives Judd crazy.

So, in an effort to focus my energy on the things that really do need to be done, I am not going to burden myself with a list of 101 goals. The thoughts of having 101 things floating around in my head is too much to bear at this point, even the act of coming up with them and getting them all organized and published is a major task. So, here are my 6 goals for the next 1001 days:
  • Be the best mother I can be
  • Be the best wife I can be
  • Be the best daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend that I can be
  • Be the best employee I can be
  • Be the best blogger I can be
  • Go for a run when I can fit it in
