Fresh Start {Because it's 2012} & 2012 Goals Printable

I'm going to give my blog a 'fresh start' this year because I've been MIA for the past few months with these little cuties...

The good thing is that with many hours awake, day and night, I've had lots of time to brainstorm new ideas. So cheers to starting fresh {again} this year {just like every year, month and Sunday in my life}. I always need to hit restart in my life. I guess I just work better that way.

Every year the most common word at the end of December, begging of January is resolution. I'm not much of a resolution person. Personally, I feel that they get forgotten about by the end of January. I do have to admit there is something refreshing about starting a new year. With a new year I feel energized to start working hard again, I feel like cleaning and organizing. All in all I feel like doing more and being a better person. For me the word goal resonates a lot higher in my mind. So this year I thought I would set goals and split them into six categories: For Me, Family, Friends, Home, To Help Others, Success/Work. Here are my goals for 2012...

For Me: I want to take time to focus more on photography. Learn my new camera and techniques in editing.

Family: Take time out to enjoy life. Plan some adventures...a trip to the zoo this summer, a weekend in Door County this fall {just a few ideas}.

Friends: Work harder to stay in touch.

Home: I want to organize the rec room/playroom in the basement and finally finish the boys nursery.

To Help Others: I want to combine my love for saving money and couponing with obtaining items for the local food pantry.

Success/Work: I want to grow my marketing, advertising and design business with new clients and finally creating my website. I also want to work to grow my etsy shop with new designs and making sure that I repost listings weekly or more. Lastly, I want to revamp my blog and work on providing content that will gain followers.

Now, I just have to make sure I stay on top of my goals. I'm going to write my goals on this 2012 goal chart I created and post it near my desk. You can print a copy for your 2012 goals here.
What are your goals or resolutions for 2012?
