Hey gorgeous, good goals there! Just remember they're a process and you won't instantly be able to do all of them k????

Can I just suggest one change? More so that you don't then throw in the towel and feel like you can't do the goal at all or worst yet, throw in all your goals???

I will make the suggestion, BUT please feel free to ignore it, I promise I will not be offended if you do, it is YOUR list (not mine). I would suggest that you aim for going to church like for 3 out of 4 weeks or 2 out of 4 weeks or going 4 out of 6 weeks or something like that... I just worry that if you are unable to go for some reason, that you'll end up feelign like a failure when its not failure at all! BUT you still want to go more often clearly... does that make sense??

Mostly, I just want to actually support you in this and help you achieve what you set out to achieve.

Lvoe and hugs

I love your goals! This is a great idea. I kind of did this for New Years (I should check back on those). If I were to do this, my list would be considerably short.

On my list, I would definitely put something along the lines of 5, 10, 15, 16, 18, and 26.
