The Year in Review

Last year at this time, I made a set of goals for 2010 that I wrote down and hung up to keep me inspired and motivated. My list was:

Run a half marathon.

Start up a paper goods company on etsy.

Have 100 transactions by the end of the year through my etsy shop.

Visit somewhere I've never been.

Visit a friend I haven't seen in a while.

Read the entire Bible all the way through.

So how did I do?

Well, I didn't run a half marathon, but it motivated me (toward the end of the year anyway) to get back into running (and sign up for my first full marathon during this year!).

I quit my job at Starbucks to focus on teaching Pilates and also to have time to devote to my brand new etsy shop that was opened in February 2010.

I surpassed my sales goal through etsy and felt + wire right in time in December!

Patrick and I went to Chi-town for our anniversary weekend! We had both only passed through Chicago before, so we let it count as going somewhere we'd never been before.

We were able to go to a couple of weddings this summer where I saw friends I hadn't seen in about two years!

I was able to read through the Old Testament of the Bible (which I had never done before) during the year.

2010 was a great year and I'm looking forward to an even better one this year! Happy Tuesday:) xo, Alicia

  1. Congratulations Alicia! That's quite an awesome list--pretty inspiring. Don't be surprised if you see a "to-do" list of my own here in the next few days. I'm not one for resolutions, but I like the idea of "goals." :)

  2. Well done Alicia, that was a pretty big list of goals and I am impressed with what you achieved! I pray that 2011 is even better for you and that you are blessed with much happiness, love and good health. xx

  3. happy new year! It's inspiring to read other people's goals for the new year or from last's. I should add reading the entire Bible to my list, it's something I've never done! Best wishes for 2011.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! I just looove hearing from you!
