My big goal in life right now is to be happy.

My other smaller goals that I'm currently working on to achieve that bigger goal are...
 -to simplify our wants and belongings
- wake up at 5 every morning
- eliminate the amount of waste our home produces
- read two books a week 
- plan an activity for Tiny daily
- have an adventure day twice a month
- have more creative outlets
- be a vegetarian every other day
- spend more time with friends
- running a 10k
- play outside instead of being on the computer
- stay in budget
- stop all self-deprecating talk in our home
- be organized
- not to waste time on things that don't make me happy in the long run
- have gratitude
- drop off dry cleaning

Madeleine dressed herself one morning. Headband and boa. :)


  1. Wow I'm exhausted just reading that list! :) Being happy is a very, very good goal. It's something I'm trying to work on too :)

    1. I'm glad being happy is something your working on. As a stay-at-home-mom, I frequently forget that that's my primary goal. It's funny how life can distract you from it.

  2. I love this lilistM I think I will be copying several of these for my own use :-)

  3. I copied the list into a note on my phone. I hope you don't mind. I just agree with a lot of your life philosophy! Thank you for sharing interesting internet finds and for sharing your blog and life.

    1. Thanks! I'm glad we have a similar life philosophy. Your user name "Stargirl" always makes me smile. It's one of my favorite books, and it's the first book that Matt and I read together as couple when we were dating.

    2. It is one of my favorites as well. I have always felt a little bit like Stargirl.
