I've set goals for 2015 but I've also been thinking about general ideas and principles that could make this year the best yet.
In the order they occurred to me:
1. Travel Korea/Asia as much as possible. I figure since we're here, we might as well take advantage of everything we can.
2. Experiment with stovetop desserts. I may not be able to perfect my baking skills in Korea but I sure can work on my frying.
3. Send more snail mail. Who doesn't love getting mail that's not a bill or advertisement?
4. Be generous. Giving makes everyone feel good!
5. Bite my tongue more. I really need to learn to think before I speak.
6. Learn to cook Korean food. Just another way to take advantage of being in Korea. I can learn to make our favorites for when we go home.
7. Learn to use the rice cooker. I think our food life will be richer if I can learn the buttons on this machine. I'm talking cakes and quiches here.
8. Get in shape. I want to be able to play a game or go for long walks/hikes without being winded. I think this will greatly improve my quality of life.
9. Write more. Writing is one of my passions and I believe it is a gift from God. I think the more I write, the more likely I am to fulfill my purposes.
10. Finish my book. I've been working on a God-inspired book idea that I hope to complete in the coming months.
11. Complete my 7-7-7 goals. That's what goals are for, right? To be completed?
12. Grow my blog. I enjoy blogging and would love to grow my reach,
13. Swim in the ocean. I think I was a mermaid in a past life. I love swimming in the ocean. It feels like home.
14. Spend more time outside. I think we could all use a bit more time in natural light.
15. Spend more time with God. How is this not a good thing? Spending more time with my creator sounds like the best way to make life better.
16. Use social media less. I think connecting in real life is much better!
17. Eat better chocolate. Life is short. Don't spend it eating low grade choco!
18. Skype me friends more often. I miss our long chats.
19. Pray with my husband. I think this is a great way to strengthen my relationship with God and my husband.
20. Complain less. I want to focus more on the good and less on the bad.
