Hello 2015! I've seen a lot of people going on and on about how 2014 was not a great year for them. I think that 2014 was a pretty good year for me....I know I've grown a lot and I think I succeeded in a lot of areas. If you remember this post from the beginning of 2014 (seriously, go read it. I'll wait.) then you may remember that I chose a word last year to live my life by - this word was Focus. I also started keeping up with the Four Simple Goals challenge on my blog by setting 4 goals each month. Around the middle of the year I realized I hadn't really focused on my word - Focus. But then again I'd been focusing on the areas of my life I wanted to through my four simple goals.
I feel so accomplished this year because I kept up with four simple goals for a whole year! Now, I didn't reach all my goals - somethings just got left behind - but I did set goals each month and I'm pretty sure I met probably 35+ of the total 48 goals that would have been set. Maybe I'll get an exact number for you later...but here are my goals for January 2015:
Discover my word for 2015 - I'd been thinking about it for a while and I might be set on the meaning of the word I want by not the word itself. Does that make sense? Like I see some things I want to plan for in my planner...and they are scary. There are things I want to do this year but they scare me a bit.....so I'm not sure what word that would be! I really liked Focus last year and I really want to find a word to encompass my year.
Work on the upstairs - Zach has been really great at getting a lot of the upstairs done. But we need to get cracking. I can't wait to have it all done...it's the getting there that I really don't like.
Plan our Kentucky get away - I really want to take a weekend getaway at Mammoth Cave in Kentucky so I need to get on planning that. I know I'll put it off, and put it off ..... then we'll never go, so I want to get that together this month. I need to see about a dog friendly hotel vs camping, find out about any tours, and see if there are any antique stores along the way. We plan on taking the drive down or the drive back up to stop along the way and check out some antique stores.
Make a list of blog tags - This was a goal a few months ago and when I started it I was immediately overwhelmed. I am going to make a list of all the blog tags I'd like to use and hopefully start getting any sub tags together too. I just want to have a better organized blog for myself and you, the readers!
Hope your 2015 is starting out with a bang!
What are your goals for 2015? How did you feel about 2014?
