Life Goals

I have been thinking a lot about my goals in life. My husband and I are in transition in our lives. He retired September 1st; we are getting ready to sell our house and move; I closed one of my offices; and we are planning to change churches. I guess this could be a time in my life that I sit back and think about retiring myself, but at the age of 53 (did I say that out loud?) I still have a lot I want to do...

So, I thought I would start a list of things that I want to accomplish. So here goes!

  1. Become a life coach
  2. Send birthday and anniversary cards to family and friends every year
  3. Learn to be frugal in most things and extravagant in the important things
  4. Spend quality time with my mom
  5. Find someone to mentor in counseling
  6. Publish a book
  7. Create a blog that is widely read
  8. Use the things I already have instead of saving them
  9. Maintain my weight
  10. Eat healthy
  11. Have friends to my house at least once a month
  12. Go out to lunch with one person every week
  13. Listen to music every day
  14. Complete continuing education in something that really interests me every year
  15. Teach a women’s Bible Study group
  16. Develop a group of colleagues to brainstorm business ideas
  17. Find a trusted group of friends to give me yearly 360° feedback
  18. Improve business skills
  19. Keep an accurate Christmas list and mail Christmas cards every year
  20. Read through the Bible every year
  21. Get in the habit of exercising 30 minutes a day
  22. Create an oasis in my home for studying/meditation/prayer
  23. Organize photos
  24. Watch less TV
  25. Read at least one book a month
  26. Pursue photography
  27. Get regular physicals
  28. Lower BMI from 24 to 21
  29. Celebrate my Golden wedding anniversary
  30. Work at home
  31. Take inventory once a year to make sure I am staying true to myself
  32. Give gratitude
  33. Increase my follow through on new ideas
  34. Teach at a university
  35. Update my family tree
  36. Simplify my life
  37. Introduce others to Jesus

I have no doubt that you will accomplish these goals. I know you are already accomplishing at least one of them...being a life coach. While you may not have the official certification yet, you are a life coach to me.
