This has been a wonderful year, full of learning new things, achieving huge bucket-list goals, and becoming a smarter, happier woman.
I am so excited for 2014. Nursing school graduation, becoming a 'legitimate adult', and taking on new adventures. I am also excited for my goals, and I have every intention of achieving each one of them!
1. Graduate Nursing School
Obvious, I know. I've wanted to be a nurse all my life. It's incredible to look back on my education even in high school, where I took every medical themed class available, because I knew I wanted that R.N after my name. I worked so hard to get accepted into a program. It caused so many heartbreaks, so many hopeless feelings. But I believe Heavenly Father was priming me for the sweet feeling of acceptance, because that Skype call with my mom while in Florida was the sweetest moment of my life. You can read that post here.
2. Study my Scriptures Every Day
I've been doing this goal since mid October, and so far I haven't missed a day. I plan to continue this streak, and maybe even attempt to knock out the Book of Mormon and the Old Testament in one year.
3. Loose 10 Pounds
That equates to less than a pound a month; doable, right? I've already started going to the gym regularly, so I'll weigh myself on the 1st, and use that as my starting weight. I'm hoping to slowly ease myself into the habit of running. Thus far, I've been using the stationary bike and the elliptical, but I'd love to get to the point where I can exercise outside with a good run. Maybe I'll even shoot for running in Disney's Princess Half Marathon in 2015?? That could be a cool goal…
4. Do Something Incredible
This one is a broad cop out… but it's still my most exciting goal. I want to do something incredible with my life in 2014. Current possibilities are: moving back to Florida, and working as a nurse and a Disney cast member, or landing my dream job at Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake. Maybe finding my Eternal companion and being married for Time and all Eternity. Perhaps taking another amazing trip to a foreign country. I dream of living life and finding adventure. Regardless of what I accomplish, I know I will be happy. This goal will most definitely be accomplished.
So there they are, four simple, worthwhile goals that mean a lot to me
