Wonderfully Anxious

I'm not a big fan of New Year resolutions -- I mean lets be honest with ourselves, are we really going to follow through on our promises for a full year?? The working out, the no chocolate, the waking up early?? Yeah, probably not.

I am, however a fan of goals. Goals, they're exciting. They give you something to strive for, but if you don't quite make it, well you can always try again. (as you can tell, I like things without high amounts of pressure. Me and that whole failure issue you know!)

This year I decided to start a tradition: making the same number of goals as my age for the upcoming year. So I wrote out my 21 ambitions, and I have to say, it makes me wonderfully anxious for what's to come. I want to fulfill these dreams so badly, my skin tingles with anticipation.

Because I like you guys and everything, I'll share some of them with you. (But not the really big scary ones. I'm keeping those locked away next to my heart.)

12. Sew a dress [50's style! :)]
1. Daily God time [i've been letting my heart go thirsty]
10. Travel to a state I've never been to [this should be fun!]
20. Buy and wear a bathing suit [this hasn't happened in about 3 we'll see how this goes haha!]
15. Give my testimony [interested where God will use me]

It's 2011 ya'll. Let's Go. =D


  1. Interesting - you're not the first person this year that I've heard from about the resolutions-to-goals shift. I like it.
    And I want to see this dress when it happens. :)

    Kylee - your SkinTingle excitement is contagious! I'm excited for you, and excited to see these things happening in your life. I love your idea of goal/age-correlation.

    Here's one big, cheesy thumbs-up. :D

  2. Ohmygoodness. I love this. I was just going to make a list for myself of things to do before I turn 25...but that seems like such a big number! I can't wait to see more. :D

  3. So, does this mean you are coming to Michigan? :)
