My 2012 Goals:
Travel at least four times.
That averages out of every 3 months, which allows me to keep my finances in check while I get to see parts of the country/world that I’ve yet to experience. I already have two trips on the horizon and a stretch goal of Hawaii.
Make yoga my focus.
I realized in 2011 that yoga teacher training is in my future. I have had many quirky instructors over the last year that helped me realize there is a place for my unique personality in the world of asanas. The reason I am not focusing on becoming an instructor this year is because I feel I have a lot more to learn. I want to rock arm balances, I want to master handstands, I want the craziest Chaturanga Dandasana to Upward-Facing Dog you’ve ever seen. I am fully aware that yoga is a practice, but I need to learn before I can help others do the same.
Become a writer.
Just because I blog and call myself a writer doesn’t mean I have successfully completed this goal. I have been published a few times in 2011, but in 2012 I have my eyes set on a regular reoccurring column on a professional organization website, in a newspaper or magazine. Dollar signs are also attached to this goal. Maybe I’ll become a travel writer and knock two goals off at the same time.
Don’t mindlessly date.
This is a big adjustment from last year’s goal of having a date a month. It was good to get me out of my shell and meet new people, but I found myself scraping together any date possible. 2012 is quality over quantity.
Own and wear a bikini.
This goal encompasses nutrition, exercise, and confidence. Also, a great thing for my trip to Hawaii. It would be my first bikini. Hell, I don’t actually own a bathing suit of any kind at the moment – full piece. two piece. (three piece?!)
