Goals for 2014

While 2013 was a rough year for me, I intend on 2014 being an amazing year, full of adventures and exciting new experiences. I want to challenge myself to learn some new skills, and develop and expand on what I already know.

  1. You’re going to be super busy this year! It reads great though, I may even borrow a few myself 🙂 I’ve done a list over on my blog but the main ones are to start to qualify as a PM, take piano back up, get my full drivers license, do lots more travel, appreciate family, boyfriend and friends more, make some new friends, learn a new craft with my new sewing machine I got for Christmas and then the usual eat healthier (which is where I’ll borrow your meal plan idea), go for more walks and in general be more positive… Basically changes for the better! I’m always excited about starting a new year!
