What Are Your Goals?

I'm linking up with Jessica at What I Have Learned.

I'm a big one for setting goals ALL the time! Not that I meet them all, but I love trying. I love the purpose it gives me.

I currently have two holiday goals:

1) To keep working on my Illustrator tutorials and master this new software ... which BTW, I absolutely love!!

2) To try and not sweat the small stuff. I always get uptight about dumb stuff like an untidy house or not meeting my goals -- ha! I'm going to try hard to let it all go ... and am just going to enjoy my sons, daughters-in-law, husband, mom and new grandbaby.

Happy goal setting to you!


  1. You have two great goals to work towards! Wishing you and your family a merry Christmas!

  2. Good for you Barbara! I saw somewhere a little post about how so many families would do anything to have the toothpaste left out again and to have their babies shoes laying on the floor. This hit me hard because I get frustrated with my own kids not picking up after themselves and being messy. This put everything into perspective. My heart just breaks for those families.

    Happy Holidays to you and blessings for the New Year!

  3. I'll have to check out some of your illustrator tutorials!

  4. Good luck with your goals! I'd love to get my house cleaned and my school work done in the next few days so that I can enjoy the rest of break. Merry Christmas Barbara!

    Enjoy your family.

  6. I love goals too. I am hoping to get everything organized so that my transition back to school in January is less hectic for all of us. Have a wonderful first Christmas with O.W.L.

  7. Thank you...I came by at just the right time. I was feeling uptight about the state my house is in and feeling sorry for myself because everyone else is having fun! I'll just join their fun and let the little stuff go!
