Non-goals for 2012

I normally don't set goals at the beginning of the year.

Okay, that's a lie.
I do...sort of, but I don't go nuts
nor beat myself up if I don't get to accomplish them.

 Okay, that's another lie.

However, I am much better now than I used to be at
forgiving myself when failure seems to stare me in the face.
The road to success can have patches of failure scattered all around.
The key is to just keep going.
I get that now, most of the time anyway. I think.

So instead of calling goals "goals",
I call them my "plans" for 2012.
Yes, the word "plan" seems to have a sense of continuity. I like it.

All right this year, I plan to...

Here is to a new year, a new beginning, and renewed focus.

What's YOUR number one goal plan for this year?

Thank you for stopping by, loves!

Your 2 and 3 plan I'm so working on as for embracing the natural curls I'm almost there ~ alternating curling and blown straight styles regularly.

  6. Silvia, mucha energía para este 2012, qué sigas así. Feliz año¡¡¡


  7. Good morning precious Silvia,

    NOTHING WE DREAM OF IS IMPOSSIBLE. I was just telling a colleague yesterday that my "final frontier" dream is to become a writer. I have done everything else in my life that I set out to do, with struggles, but I have done them. But when discouragements come, I do cry, I say, "IT IS IMPOSSIBLE" and then a small voice tells me to just keep on pushing. I then realize that I have nothing to loose because IF I never publish, the exercise of faith to keep working at it and the JOY I get out of it is what will be inscribed not on published pages, but on my character and soul. Live on dearest one and THANK YOU FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL BLOG, that I have been waiting to see come alive again! Anita

  8. Wow this is truly inspiring! I adore your 2012 plans - and I am inspire to do them all. Hmmm a food blog, yeah you should start it! Pretty please, I need some guidance with health food cooking!

    Hugs & kisses from South Florida,
