Radical Year 2 sped by!! I experienced new things, like running and performing actual physical work to my car. I improved on certain things and felt staggered one others. At the end of everything, I kept on Pushing.
1. Give up on sweets/desserts.
Um, this was a definite radical goal. It was a day by day experience. For most days, I was able to go without having sweets and or buying desserts, mainly candy. I was able to substitute my candy buying with fruit bowls and just telling myself NO. There were days that I slipped, but I did my best not to beat on myself too much (B-).
2. Exercise at least 10 minutes everyday
I had spurts where I would exercise everyday, 15 minutes or more and other times, I couldn’t find my exercise shoes. These last three months I have been walking for at least 30 minutes, 3-4 times a week. I have went down 10-15 lbs and I pray that my resolve to be healthier only continues to strengthen (B+).
3. Help with the building of a house.
This was a fail. I emailed the local nonprofits in my areas that specialize in building houses for low income families. They never got back in touch with me. (D+)
4. Live stress free.
Yea, not much to say — some days were better than others. I did consciously make an effort to pray when I felt I was taking things in my own hands instead of giving it to God (C+).
5. Create a business plan for my nonprofit.
I came up with the nonprofit name and my mission statement, other than that I haven’t gotten far. I did recently buy a pocket mentor book pertaining to writing a business plan that I hope will shed light and help me reach this goal in Year 3. (C+)
6. Gain more experience in event planning.
I wasn’t really getting/giving any real events to plan this rad yr. I, along with my oldest sister, is in the process of planning my mom’s 65th birthday in 2014: this has really gotten my event planning juices flowing. This goal will be recycled for Rad yr 3. Even if there is no events being planned, I still want to create event idea boards; so if there anyone wants to throw me out any real or factitious events, I’m ready. (D+)
7. Teach someone to read.
This was a semi-fail. I wasn’t able to get involve in a literacy program as I would have liked buy I did read to my 2 yr old neice as much as possible; she seems to enjoy reading. (C+)
Overall, I would give myself a B- .
