Goals for January
Journal Everyday: I’ve always kept a journal but I’ve had a hard time being consistent with it. This month, I’ve committed to completing Madison Hedlund’s Come Alive Journaling Guide. Completed! For these prompts, I used a composition book and then I hand journaled thoughts into a Moleskine Cahier. Unsubscribe from unnecessary emails: I’m getting over 50 emails a day and even though I don’t have push notifications on my phone, it’s still pretty obnoxious and seeing new products and other blogs makes it harder to find contentment in the things that I have. I’d also love to clear out my RSS feed and start over. Boom! Did both of these and I also disabled my emails from being “pushed” which means that I’m not getting notifications all day. Best. Idea. Ever. Finish watching House of Cards Season Three: You know I gotta be ready for the fourth season. (If you haven’t watched this yet, you should get on it. The next season comes out in March.) Done! Pumped for the next season.
Write 20 blog posts: My goal is to write about half of those for this blog and half for WrittenWorship.com. I really want to be committed and I know that consistency is important in making habits. Ok, so I didn’t quite get this one done but I am happy with the posts that did get written, so let’s call this good.
Purchase business cards: this one has been on my list for a while and shouldn’t be hard to complete. One of the last goals I completed, which means that they won’t be coming for a few more days, but I’m so excited to see them! Girl’s weekend: next weekend I’m getting together with some friends and I’m SO excited about it. We’ve been planning it for a while, which is why I’m considering it a “goal” for this month. Had a blast spending the weekend with my girls. You can read more about our weekend here. OLW: complete Ali Edward’s E-Course and Prompts for January. Done and Done. Take two classes at Wilson’s: I’m ready to get my exercise on, slowly but surely. Not only did I take more than two classes, I took two new classes (that I loved). Trying to fit yoga into my weekly schedule. Grow Herbs: Kevin gave me an indoor garden for Christmas and now I’m in the process of growing six different types of herbs that we are going to integrate into our cooking! Smashed it! You should see these babies!
Out of my nine goals, I’m happy to say that I completed eight of them! Just by creating these intentional action items for myself, I felt like I was more productive with my free time and got some items that I had been procrastinating on knocked off my list. So without further ado, here are the goals I’m setting for February.
Goals for February
Complete 29 Bible Journaling entries. Ideally, I’d love to do one every day but this allows for a little more grace for myself and I need that.
Post each of the 29 pages on Instagram.
Bake a new sweet treat for Valentine’s Day.
Create a blog survey for WrittenWorship.com and try to have at least 30 people complete it.
Host a Bible Journaling Kit Giveaway.
Be intentional with praying and find a way to keep track of ongoing prayer requests.
OLW: complete Ali Edward’s E-Course and Prompts for February.
Try out coupon clipping or multiple meal prep to discover new money-saving techniques.
Finish PDF version of my written worship e-course.
Honestly, I feel like these are some pretty lofty goals, but I’m certain that I can complete them in the next 29 days! Do you have goals for February?
