New Years. The time of year where everyone has the greatest aspirations to be a better person in the next year. Whether that’s meaning you’re going to lose weight, save more money or maybe read more books. These things are called New Years Resolutions.. And in my mind, it’s kind of got a negative connotation.
Every time I’ve made a resolution it lasts for maybe.. 3 months at best. So here is my solution to the word resolution.
I’m making Year Goals instead. We’re going to give this a shot. Maybe it’ll be the same as any other year and I’ll give up after 3 months, but maybe with having my readers holding me accountable and looking for updates will motivate me to stick with it.
Here are my goals for the next year.
1. Drink 1 gallon of water every day. I’m notorious for not drinking enough water. Andrew is constantly getting after me to make sure I drink enough water. I’ll try to keep you updated with this challenge weekly.
2. Walk more. I have an office job that has me sitting the majority of the day. My goal is to get up and make 2 laps around the office at a time, 4 times a day.
3. Be more creative and more.. Schedulely for my blog. I’m excited for the year to come and have some great ideas floating around in my head. I know this goal isn’t really measurable, so just keep your eyes open for creative changes within the blog.
4. Give more. Period.
5. Blog 2 times a week. This past year I had a goal of 1 time a week, and I’ve been able to mostly keep that up.
6. Take a break! I believe it’s so important to take a breather. Don’t take life so seriously. It’s so short. Andrew and I are going to take a vacation this spring around our anniversary. Much needed.
7. Read 24 books. This comes out to 2 books a month. I love reading. It just means instead of zoning out and watching Shark Tank most nights, I should pick a book up and read instead.
8. Start a garden. Since we finally are in the country, I am able to have a garden this year! It’ll be my first time ever having one, so I’m sure you’ll hear about that saga.
9. Serve my husband better/more. I’m not sure what this looks like yet, or how this will be measurable. I’m sure I’ll strive to do this for a lifetime.
So some of these goals aren’t very specific and somewhat hard to measure, I’ll keep you posted as much as I can on my progress. The water, blogging and books will be easy. :)
What are your goals?
Love to all- Nicole
