So everyone has been writing about goals and words and things that they are doing in 2014. Yeah I haven’t really done that yet…because well because I have been lazy (if we’re being honest here). I have thought of some goals but nothing really all that concrete. A lot of people have been posting WORDS. I thought of a word last week and mentioned it in my Quick Takes on Friday but haven’t written a long post about it so maybe I’ll use this post to do just that!
My word for 2014 is GOOOO!
Yes GO! Jen @ Conversion Diary is my word twin because we’re awesome. I have chosen this word because in 2014 I have a lot of things planned. A lot of things that I have put off for MANY years. A lot of things that are going to make me GET UP AND GO!
In 2014 I am going to do a lot of traveling. I will be GOING to Greece, Germany (just for a layover), Italy, France, and London. I’ve been waiting to take this trip for close to 10 years! I am so excited about this adventure! I’ve wanted to go to Greece since I first read the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books and the 2004 Summer Olympics.
As a Catholic I’ve always wanted to go to Rome, Assisi, and Lisiuex. I want to GO and see all the things I’ve read about and learned about since I was a little girl. I’m going to take chances, be adventurous and GO and see the world!
Another thing I will be doing this summer is I’m going to the iRetreat Conference at Hershey Park! I’ve heard great things about this conference for several years and last summer I was able to get a ticket for $100 when the conference was announced. I’ve been reading a lot about bloggers that have turned their blogs into businesses and are making 5x what I’ve ever made in my life. This fascinates me. The keynote speakers at the conference did just this and I’m looking forward to learning more about how I could possibly do this as it’s really fascinating. I’d love to be able to do it and not have to get one of those “real jobs.”
So another GO is I’m going to take chances and risks and see what God has in store for me in terms of my career. I’m also thinking about relocating to a place with seasons. I have several job alerts out there so we’ll see what happens when the time comes.
I didn’t travel much the last 2 years and obviously I’m making up for it this summer as I’ll be doing A LOT of traveling! Because after those two trips in July I’ll be joining Jen and Morgan in Savannah for our NAS Meet-up!! I’m super excited for this! I love meeting blog friends in real life and no joke a week before they announced their meet-up I thought..I wish there was a blogging conference/event/meet-up for single bloggers…and then they announced this trip!
Some non-travel goals I have for this year are:
- Become more ORGANIZED (I used to be better at this the last few years I’m constantly drowning in messes/paper).
- Have better focus during mass – I want to start reflecting on the readings/homily after mass each week to help with this.
- Cross off more items on my 30 Before 30 List.
- Get more involved in some meetup groups or church groups or groups in general to meet more people.
I think 2014 is going to be a great year! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me and everyone! I love the start of a new year everything seems so fresh and new again! We’ll see how many of these goals I accomplish but I’m going to have fun trying!
See you next week…our topic is BEAUTY!
