January being the first month of the year is a time for optimism and growth; however we all often fall short of our goals and intentions for the new year. Let’s try to make fewer goals per month and FOCUS on being genuine and having all around good intentions with ourselves and others through the month. I tend to create a long exasterbated list of everything to establish my goals and that isn’t the best way to go about acheiving your daily, weekly and monthly goals.
Take a day off from social media day.
Finish one book in January.
Daily schedule/weekly schedule, use E.C planner.
Write 3 pen pals to stay in touch.
Blog: BE CONSISTENT. If that means 3 days, stick with it- if you can do 5, stick with it; but don’t flake out on writing posts when you’ve gotten lazy. Quality over Quantity.
Finish design-fonts, header, comments, color scheme/font blog theme for graphics
Take more pictures for posts (don’t rely on stock)
Social Media Banners. (catagories/tags)
Recaterorize the blog/remove old signatures and pieces of ‘old blog design.
Health: Make appointments for dental, medical and eye glasses. Be brave! Do whatever needs to be done.
Ask questions, write down ahead of time.
Schedule counselor visit?
Drink water daily. (with or without flavor drops)
Budget: Save money. Go cheap. Stop splurging for nonsense reasons.
Find ways to substitute or stretch the cash. NEED vs WANT.
Do more activities and date nights at home.
Buy generic over store brand.
Date nights weekly. (Friday)
Kiss more/hug more.
Spend quality time talking and getting to know each other more.
Have better communication
So I figure I should start small and accomplish one or two at a time rather than risk failing them all after a week. I’ll incoporate all these into the month but some of these are more ‘in the moment’ types of goals, just starting them and try to improve upon those traits and downfalls of mine. I have so many things I want to work on and I’m sure you do too- I’m glad I retrieved this feeling of making oneself “better and improved, not stagnant” so that’s a relief! Let’s take it a month at a time… okay Get Ready, Set,…… GO!
I’m linking up with a couple places for this post and one being one of my very best friends Pam |Hodge Podge Moments so go read about other bloggers aspirations and intentions for this month. The other I found on several sites while I was reading Bloglovin’ and The Road to a Better Me was one I wanted to particpate in! JOIN IN AND LINK UP!
