Looking Ahead

Despite the chaos in the financial world at the end of 2008, I would have to say that for me, it was a good year. I’m also feeling optimistic about 2009. I’ve been moving forward on some of my larger, “life goals” I guess you’d call them, and I anticipate further progress in the year ahead. I’m not going to discuss them here, though.

As for smaller goals, I have a few of those for 2009 as well. Many, but not all, of them are craft-related. In the coming year,

I will teach myself to embroider.
I will learn how to crochet, probably by reading tutorials and asking the ladies in my knitting group for help.
I will knit at least one more sweater, this time for my husband. If I can save up enough money, I’ll knit myself another sweater, also.
I will continue to give handmade gifts, but not worry about timing them with birthdays and holidays.
I will attend more musical and theatrical performances.
I will resume oboe lessons, if it is financially feasible.
I will keep working toward the new position I want at my job.
I will keep working toward a simpler life.

All of these are practical, achievable goals. They’ll fit in with the direction I want my life to go. That last one will be the toughest, because it isn’t very specific, but I know what I mean and how to keep moving in that direction.

Happy New Year to all of you, and good luck with your own goals!
