New Year Aspirations 2014

This year, I am keeping my New Year Aspirations SIMPLE!
I get so discouraged when I don’t meet my goals each and every year.  This year, I am going to accomplish them all.

Read the One Year Bible from start to finish
I have read the Bible in 90 Days a couple of years back and that was tough!  I want to wake up and do my devotions every morning in 2014 before I do anything else to start my day.

Lose 40 pounds
Every year I want to lose weight, but this year it is going to happen.  It HAS to happen. 40 lbs is less than a pound a week which does not sound too far-fetched.  Honestly, I just want to feel good in my own skin and be able to lead an active life.

Pay Off the Mortgage
To date, we owe $24,497.32 on our mortgage.  We were able to pay off ½ of the mortgage last year and we hope to pay off the rest this year to be mortgage-free by October 2014!

These are the aspirations I will be focusing on in 2014.

What are your goals for this year?


  1. “This year, I am going to accomplish them all.” – This is definitely the best attitude anyone can have in setting their goals. If you maintain this attitude throughout the year, there’s no doubt that you’ll lose 40 pounds and pay off your mortgage before the end of this year.

  2. That’s true. It’s practical to make your goals simple and realistic, to give you a higher chance to accomplish it throughout the year. And it’s good to know that you’re focusing on your health and finances. That’s two of the hardest goals to accomplish for some. Between the two, paying off the mortgage is relatively easier than the other, especially since you were able to pay at least half of it last year. But then again, it just means that you will have more time to focus on your plans to stay fit and healthy.
