These are the things I want to achieve in 2011
Make my week: to make something handmade I haven’t made before every week
Family and Faith Thursday: to do something intentional and special as a family every week and to explore ways to grow in our faith as a family.
Cake Overload: Decorate a cake in a beautiful or crazy way and knock on a door with my boys, hide and watch it being found.
Food Love: Make a meal for another family.
Random Acts of Kindness (RAK): do something lovely or thoughtful for someone I don’t know
Book Of the Month: Read and reviw a book every month
Green and Brown: More brown flour, sugar, pasta, rice. More green products and less chemicals – lots more homemade cleaners…
Second Hand and Fair: Buy second-hand, from local artisans, fair trade, make it myself. I am going to try to make these my FIRST options when I shop.
Spend Less, Invest More: live within my means, spend money thoughtfully in order that I can model the kind of lifestyle I want my children to follow and in order that I have resources to be generous with.
Personal growth: Investing in this 1 body I have by trying to feed it better and exercise it more. Invest in this one spirit I have by connecting it to the source- the Creator intentionally every day. Invest in this one soul I have by feeding it with good relationships, generous love, good thoughts, images, words…Invest in this one brain I have by reading more, learning and trying new things that require thought and figuring out.
