My 2015 Goals

I decided to make this little sign of my own goals for the coming year. I hope these can help you with your own goals or at least get a better insight as to where I'm coming from. Enjoy.
Break a bad Habit. This one is one that I am constantly trying to over come. I feel that so many times I misjudge someone or a just jump to assumptions. I hate when other people do it so I am going to try
not to do it to other people. It's not only a bad habit, it's an ugly one.
Try a new skill. I think I will try to teach myself to play the guitar. I have in the past and things were going well and then I had a baby and never made time for it again. I am hoping to pick that back up...and to moon walk like Michael Jackson. I'm serious.
Be a better friend. This one to me is hard. I think being a true friend is a lot of work. You have to take time to nourish the friendships that you have and consciously make an effort to be there and reach out to people. I want to be an uplifting friend and be there for my friends that may be in need. I often think 'if a person saw me in a grocery store, would I be the kind of person that they would want to walk up to and say hello or quickly walk the other way as to not be seen by me'. I hope it's not the latter and that people would see me as a good friend.
Visit a new place. I should have added that I want to visit a new place with my family. I think this such an adventurous one and would love to make those memories happen with my husband and children. I want to travel with them as much as possible. I will make this happen even if it's not an exotic twelve hour away place. It may be simple but it will be amazing.
Serve More. With my new calling, I have a feeling this one wont be a problem but I want this goal to be more than that. I want to find ways to secretly serve those around me. Or to just find tiny things each day that will help me better serve my family and my community. I often think about things to do, but never actually do them and that is one of the main things I want to change with this goal.
Whine less. I am so blessed and I often forget that and tend to whine about the wonderful life that I have. I hate that. I want to be more grateful and show it in my everyday life. Have you ever been around someone that constantly whines? It sucks and I don't want to be that Debbie Downer.
Run Hard. This one may be my greatest goal this year. I have fallen out of love with running and I haven't sorted out my thoughts as to why. I have a hard time with it and I know I need to because of the amazing things it does for me, but for some reason I just can't put my whole heart into it like I have in the past. This one will be a challenge.
Love unconditionally. This one goes without saying that I just need to try my hardest to love more...and maybe if it's not love, then at least to like more and to try and find the good in people. One thing that I told someone close to me about how to treat others really stuck with me {I know its weird that I am quoting myself when I say this}, but I told him that 'We may not be accountable for how {this person} lives their life, but we will be accountable for how we treat them."
Regret nothing. I want to live this year trying my hardest and knowing that I am consciously making an effort to improve myself and the lives of those that I come in contact with. This is just a small list of improvements that I want to make and there is so much to work on. I just want this year to be a year of smart choices and goodness.
