My Dreams for the New Year

by - Thursday, December 16, 2010

With 2010 drawing to a close in a few weeks, it is time to start thinking about the new year and all the things we wish for it. This is not so much a New Year's Resolution but more of a change in thought or heart for the year. There are so many things that we want for ourselves or wish we could change. The new year holds so much promise for a better life and I am planning on making the most of mine. Here are my dreams and aspirations for new possibilities in the new year.

  • I dream of doing more with my education. With my husband in school working towards his degree, it is not financially possible for me to go back to school for Paralegal Studies. We have planned on me continuing my education once he secures his degree. In the meantime, I have started a legal blog to keep myself current in legal news. My goal is to continue my legal blogging and take a few of the free legal courses on iTunes University to stay sharp.
  • I aspire to do more with my family life blog. I would love to make it a source of income for me and my family. I am dedicated to learning more about becoming a great blogger and ways to monetize my blog. I would really love to get a sponsorship to a few of the blogging conferences to really get myself and my blog "out there."
  • I aspire to work out more. I know this is on thousands of womens lists, but I really have not taken an interest in my health since college. Everything else seemed to take priority such as classes or work. Now that I have the time to do it, I should not waste the opportunity.
  • I am dreaming about our move over the summer for my husband's internship. I wan to explore our new temporary home and make the most out of a once in a lifetime experience. I just have to make the effort and leave my hesitations behind. Change can be a great thing so I need to embrace it.
I hope you enjoyed reading my dreams and aspirations for the new year. I just have to make the effort to turn them into reality. Now that I have them in print I have a good reminder for myself. What are your dreams and aspirations for the new year?
