Happy New Year, 2013!

Trina Schart Hyman from The Everything Book
Today is the first day of January, 2013.

One year ago I was making career plans and heading into uncharted territory. This year, it's full-steam ahead.  We may have had a year of ups and downs, but through it all, God has been good.
I'm not much for resolutions, but I'm a list-making fool.  Accordingly, this year I've got improved plans for reading, study, painting, work, play, travel, diet, exercise, remodeling, and general improvement.
"I press toward the mark . . ."

Last night, a friend shared these funny resolutions he found online, (Shown here, slightly tweaked):

RESOLUTION #1:
2007: I will read at least 20 good books a year.
2008: I will read at least 10 books a year.
2009: I will read 5 books a year.
2010: I will finish The Light Between Oceans
2011: I will read some articles in the newspaper this year.
2012: I will read at least one article this year.
2013: I will try and finish the comics section this year.
RESOLUTION #2:
2007: I will get my weight down below 180.
2008: I will watch my calories until I get below 190.
2009: I will follow my new diet religiously until I get below 200.
2010: I will try to develop a realistic attitude about my weight.
2011: I will work out 5 days a week.
2012: I will work out 3 days a week.
2013: I will try to drive past a gym at least once a week.

Thanks to Alex and Nick.

I hope you fared better with your goals than this guy.  But don't worry if you didn't complete as much as you'd hoped.  Focus on moving forward from where you are right now!

What will you accomplish this year?
