2012 is going to great. Every year should be a little better, every year I should be a little better of a person. Things are not always easy, things are not perfect. But with the right perspective, life can truly be enjoyed. I have so much to look forward to, so much that I can accomplish.
The next 366 days are not going to be filled with regrets, but with continual growth. I am constantly making lists in my head, and planning. I don't want any of these 2 week long resolutions, but rather things I really want to accomplish and know will have the motivation to accomplish.
In 2012 I am going to
  • travel to Honduras on March 10 on a humanitarian trip
  • Take advantage of as many opportunities to work as I can to earn money for Honduras.
  • Continue to play the piano whenever I have the chance or am at home.
  • Write in my journal every week.

  • Take an institute class.
  • Always have a place I am volunteering at (Special Olympics, music at retirement home,
  • Pray every morning and night and read scriptures.
  • Save money, limit how much I eat out.
