I just love the beginning of a new year. There are so many hopes and dreams stored up for the days ahead. A list of things we want to do, people we want to see, places we want to go. I am a dreamer, and I tend to get overwhelmed pretty easily by that wonderful list. The key for me is to take it slow...checking off one thing at a time. That's where goals come in really handy, and I love setting them for myself each month. I'm all about the baby steps, so let's get started! As they say, there's no time like the present. :)
Be present - I wanted to be present with my family and friends during the holidays, free of distractions and a list of goals I wanted to complete. It was so nice to relax, go on vacation, take a week off of blogging over the week of Christmas, and just be with people.
1 | Practice Spanish every day - A couple of my friends are learning Spanish via Duolingo, and they inspired me to pick it back up. I took Spanish in high school and really enjoyed it. I've always loved learning new languages, but the sad thing is I didn't use it much after high school so I lost the majority of what I'd learned. Practicing on Duolingo every day will slowly and surely help me pick back up what I've lost. Hooray for continued education. :)
2 | Work out at least four days a week - Okay, so this one isn't really just a one-month goal type of thing...it's an all year long goal. :) Sitting for eight hours a day at work each day is basically the worst thing in the world for my heart. I've always been a very active person, but post-college me found it really hard to make time for consistent exercise. I'm making it a priority to work out because my heart and my body need it to be strong and healthy!
3 | Complete five more chapters in Blog Life - Guys, at some point I will actually finish the incredible Blog Life course from A Beautiful Mess. I am the turtle in this race. Hopefully in taking my time, I will glean more from the course and be able to put it all to good use!
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS THIS MONTH?
