I never make resolutions. ever. because I always break them. SO this year, they are called "goals" and are broken down into categories. Each category is further refined. For example, my "Personal Goals" include reading more purposefully.

X. Personal Goals
I. Be more purposeful in my reading this year
A. Read two books a month
1. Read one fiction book a month
2. Read one non-fiction/spiritual book a month

For January, I read "The Violets of March" as my fiction choice and am slooooooowly reading through Piper's "This Momentary Marriage" as my non-fiction selection. Honestly, without my goal in mind, I would've put it down after the first three pages. He's not really my kind of author. Quite repetitive and dry. But...I. Will. Finish. Just to check off January's goal ;-)

What's on your reading list for this year?

I know that 2012 holds many new adventures for me and my family. Continuing to adjust to a new house. Adding a baby. Figuring out a new schedule and routine. Learning to lighten up (with myself and my family, mainly Isabel). Determining what priorities and goals I should focus on...phew, I'm exhausted just thinking about it all.

But I want Proverbs 31:25 to be my life verse.

"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."

How about you? Any life verses/quotes that you're going to use to keep you going?
