1. For Self Betterment - Spend more time with God. I want to give my first moments of the day to the Lord, not to social media, or email, or coffee. (I can still heart my coffee, but my loves must be ordered and given due affection. Patience, my dear dark roast.) This goal includes getting a grip on the intimidation that keeps me from spending time in the Word. (It's English, Nat! You got this!)
2. For Others - Serve those I love. Ugly truth: I can be pretty self-absorbed. I figure baby steps are the best way to initiate life-long behavioral changes, so I'll start with opening up my time and consideration for those I know and love, hoping that that will lead to me stepping up and serving those I don't know (or always like). This may take the form of caring for someone's kiddos without pay, cleaning their house, helping to organize a garage/closet/basement, dropping off a home-cooked meal, etc.
3. For Enjoyment - Travel. This actually helps me with #1 as well since traveling so stirs my affections for Him. I don't make enough time or earmark funds for travel, yet it's so enriching!
