Almost end of 2011. It was a long year that taught me a lot. literally changed my perception of everything. I am super excited about 2012! I know it will be better and happier for me, my family, my friends and well wishers. Ill-wishers can kill themselves, I don’t care! So, talking about 2011, it’s that time of the year when I do a status check for goals I set for myself beginning of this year and post about new goals. Read here for mid-year status check. Here is the latest update:
Become absolutely debt free — CHECK
This was a big one! And trust me it feels great to not give away a part of your income to a bank, that is actually out to get you. Now I know what freedom tastes like 😛 delish!
Eat at home more often — CHECK
Cooking and eating at home is healthy. How so I know? Well cz I did it. D’oh! Also, it helps you lose weight. Just that. I mean even without working out.
Get myself a real savings account — CHECK
And yes I am putting some money in there too lol. i call it the travel fund!
Travel — EPIC FAIL
Yup. Forget a new country, I didn’t even travel within the country. So may be a goal for 2012?
Simplify life – De-clutter and organize life. Get rid of all the stuff I don’t ever use anymore. And get everything I own, a home. Get back on schedule and make sure everything is in proper working condition. I read somewhere, it brings in good chi — CHECK
Better system for organizing my stuff is in place. Life already seems lighter and happier 🙂
Learn a skill/get a new hobby –– CHECK
Painting is that new hobby. Here is a sample. One more big one in works, will post the picture soon 🙂
Yoga – practice yoga regularly for a calm and more peaceful mind and body — MEH, FAIL
Added to goals for 2012
Accumulate experiences, not material – enjoy the little things in life and spend more time with people I love — CHECK
Find more time for hobbies — CHECK I have been painting, sketching, reading and playing scramble more often. And it’s great!
Take time to breathe – CHECK
I am working on my goals for 2012. I will post them soon! Till then, let me know if you have a goal that you think I should include in my list. Also, tell me about your goals. What do you want to accomplish in 2012? See y’all soon!
