My 2013 goals all stem from all I've been learning from Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts. Through all my Thankful Thursday posts I realized how truly important it is to be thankful in all circumstances. This year I want to make the most of what I already have and be more intentional in savoring the everyday moments.
*I'm going to be thankful for our teaching salaries (even though they may be small)
2013 is the year of budgeting in the Renner house. Yes, my husband and I are starting a budget and you know what? I'm actually excited about it. We have our excel spreadsheet made and we are going to have fun getting creative with our spending!
*I'm going to be thankful for the clothes that are already hanging up in my closet
2013 is the year of remixing. I'm going to try to buy only the necessities and use what I already have in new and fun ways. That might mean you will see a few more fashion posts around here to help inspire me!
*I'm going to be thankful for H20
2013 is the year of slowly cutting out pop from my diet. It will be a slow process, but it starts now.
*I'm going to be thankful for the body God has given me
2013 is the year of getting my booty back in to gear. I'm going to attempt to work out 2-3 days a week. Whether that's doing a 30 Day Shred DVD, a Zumba class or simply getting outside to take a walk I just want to be more active!
*And last, I'm going to be thankful for a God who I can trust to take care of all of my needs
I already have a good feeling about 2013 and what God is going to do in my life. I'm excited to be more intentional about being thankful for all that I have been given.
So what does that mean for the blog? In 2013 you will be seeing me get creative by giving old things new uses along with finding out all the tips and tricks there are when it comes to living on a budget. I'm excited about what that will look like! Happy 2013!
