It will be a haven of creativity. I also hope to run a marathon celebrating my complete physical healing from a fall down the stairs. I hope to be in a new home in a warmer climate.

  66. I will celebrate freedom from “stuff” one year from today. The clutter around me both physical and mental needs to move out and make room from peace, simplicity and tranquility. Those things I “might need later” are getting in the way of what I “can have right now”.

  70. Only recently found iBloom and decided to join in on the adventure. My plan for year 2014 will be to increasing performance dates for my one woman show. This is important as my long term plan is make the transition to full time performance and sustainable income. Develop the details and planning skills needed to advance my goals ie a) write consistently on my blog b) update website c) organization d) asking for help. I’m sure there is more and I trust those necessary parts will unfold as the year progresses.
    I will continue to pursue physical fitness with P90X as part of my desire is to be an inspiration for others. On a personal level I plan to develop deeper relationships with my daughters as well as with my women friendships. I would truly love to find true love with an amazing man 🙂 Oh, and clean out a few closets and purge the garage. 🙂

  71. LizyBeth says:

    One year from now, our family will be about half-way through my hsuband’s upcoming thrid deployment to the Middle East. At that point, I will be celebrating thriving through this delpoyment with joyful and intentional parenting, faithful and regular communication with my husband, and actually taking care of myself this time. I have set goals for Scripture memorization, running training, and other self-care goals. Through the last two deployments, I did not take great care of myself and fell into depression both times. My goal isn’t necessarily to avoid depression- that may just be a part of deployment for me, BUT this time I will be doing everything in power to make sure I am taking the best care of ME that I can. I can’t take care of everything on my own without first taking care of me. I’m ready to learn, grow, and thrive!

  72. Hello, Kelly

    My goal in one year is to provide a home for my daughters. And be secure financialy.
    I loved your video. And can’t wait t o see the others Thanks.and God bless

  73. My goal in one year is to have a closer relationship with God and my family! I would like to be in a place to help others as I start the transition from one business to another.

  74. Valerie Meyers says:

    My goal for 2015 is to completely trust the Lord with the finances that He blesses me and my family with. I want to be a better steward of my resources and be a better giver of my time and resources.

    Also, as I have been praying about 2015 and what God is asking me to focus on, the word “empowerment” keeps coming to mind. It’s like every time I see that word or hear it something in my heart grabs of hold of it and says “yes!” or it brings me to tears as I remember those time that I felt anything but empowered and how God rescued me. I don’t honestly know what 2015 will bring but I believe that it will have something to do with empowering women in some way.

  75. One year from today, I will be celebrating a life that is thriving, not just surviving…and will know that I am living out His call on my life!

  76. I hope some personal relationships are better. I hope I’m mentally better in how I look at things. I hope our house is finished.

  77. Jennifer Carruthers says:

    In 1 year from today I plan to have finished losing my 65 lb goal (21 lbs done – 44lbs to go!) I plan on being more organized. Have new written goals (career and personal) and to be established in pursuing them.

  78. Kathleen Smith says:

    My goal is to spend regular time with the Lord, in addition to the time my husband and I spend praying together. My goal is to sell ten books a month and to get my Twitter account up to 1,000. I want to e worth following!

  79. My goal is to increase in intimacy with the Lord. I want a more orderly life – making goals and sticking with them – so I can steward all my relationships well. And I want to be writing authentic message that resonate with my readers.

  80. My goals for November 2016 is to have a better relationship with God and to be able to say I spent more quality time with my husband. I will also learn how to write in SQL language. My house will be more clutter free and organized.
