My Plan for 2012
[Tonight Danny and I went on a date to Tasty Hand Pulled Noodle on Doyers St. in Chinatown. LOVED watching the guy in the back make the noodles. He flings and twirls and bangs the dough. You might actually jump in your seat when he starts whacking the dough on the counter. But yes, the result is TASTY.]
Aside from my goal that trumps everything else...a few things I'd love to do this year:
-Think about what other people might need & help them out more. I want to be more in tune with the needs of the people in my circle - family, friends, neighbors, etc. It's so easy to just keep life on the surface and dash off to do something else. I guess I just want to be a better friend.
-Tackle my closets and reduce my belongings! I love being a minimalist, which means a LOT needs to go......
-Stay in touch better with my friends & family in different parts of the country/world (and yes, that includes Westchester, NJ, CT, CA, NC, MA, UT, OR, AZ, IL, & Poland!)
-Read, read, read. I don't read enough these days! My brain cells need it! It seems the days just fly by and I never sit down to read. We *almost* did a read-a-thon today. haha. But it didn't happen. NY got the best of us. I'll keep trying.
-RUN or WALK daily...it's so good for the soul.
-Keep exploring New York. There are so many stones uncovered.
-Hike the Adirondacks with Danny. We're dying to do this.
-Take a yoga class. Don't you think I should be doing yoga? Yes, I know.
-Learn how to use our camera - cause I'm worthless on that thing. :)
-Visit Washington D.C., Philadelphia & Montreal with Danny. Friends, want to join in?
-Ride the bike path around the entire perimeter of Manhattan with a stop at Dinosaur BBQ, along the Hudson River.
-Run the Brooklyn Half Marathon.
-Ride in the 5-Borough Bike Ride in May. Lottery, lottery - - let us in!
-Travel to Brazil this spring for a Mormon Temple dedication in Manaus, in the heart of the Amazon. Danny spent two years here on a Mormon mission.
-Continue sharing a message of hope with as many people as I can. Have less filler posts like this one. haha. :)
-Get pregnant soon or fill out adoption papers. Whew! If things work out brilliantly, I couuuuuld be a mother next Christmas. That would be wild. We'll be doing our best to figure out how to get some kids one way or another. All will be well.
-PACK FOR ALT SUMMIT! (Yes, I leave soon....time to pack.)
What are some of your goals? I really would love to hear (I just might add some of yours to my list!) Can you tell I'm kind of a goal junkie? :)
