Actually, I filled out an application to go back to college today (speaking of long term goals). The school is a bit out of reach based on my most recent scores and transcripts but since I'd be returning to school as a "non-traditional" student, I'm hoping that will increase my chances.
Other than that my short term goals are the same as the always are: work out, lose weight, make time for me, work on crafts, read all the books in my book queue.
Anyone actaully acheive the goals they set out to meet? I dont seem to be able to get past the list making part....

Modernphilistine - I'm actually making a homemade sugaring gel for sugar waxing as I type this :) so hopefully within the next hour I will have completed a goal successfully
Govinda- Have you ever tried Bikram Yoga? It's yoga in a 105 degree room. The heat gives you more flexibility and makes for faster progress in doing the poses successfully. I love it so much more than regular yoga and recommend it to everyone.
No, I have not tried Bickram yoga. I thoght I might try this summer when I have more time to practise.
Having said that, the flexibility of the body is not my goal for yoga. I have been studying and teaching yoga many years. There are so many types og yoga; and then there area also the 8 branches of yoga. Yamas, niyamas, asana, pranayama, prtayahara, dharana, dhyana and samadhi.
There is jnana yoga, the yoga of wisdom, bhakti yoga, the yoga of devition, karma yoga, the yoga of selfless service, and there are more. They all interest me. Bikram yoga is one form of yoga that is called Hatha yoga; it focuses mostly on the body. While that is good, becasue we need to have a healthy body, my interest in yoga is a bit different. For me, yoga is a way of life,- the aim of which is to expreince life to the fullest in each moment. My hatha yoga practice is but a piece of that.
It is grat to have so many types of yoga and styles, becasue different syles appeal to different people. They all point in the same direction, inward- and ultimatly to Self realization.
