Happy New Year!!
Setting goals is really important for me, and I feel like writing them out sets the entire tone for my year. I’ve spent the last few weeks thinking about mine, and today I want to share a couple of them.
These aren’t all of my goals, but here are four of my big ones for this year.
1. Re-learn how to play the piano
I took piano lessons for YEARS when I was younger. I think I started when I was six and then took them until I was fourteen. Now I can hardly play anything. B is taking lessons now and it’s making me want to pick it back up. I’m determined to make time each Sunday to sit down and play through some stuff and get this skill back.
2. Put my phone away for the night everyday by 8pm
Pretty much every night we put the kids to bed and then I go sit and stare at my phone for at least an hour. It’s mindless and stupid, and it takes away from time I could have with Philip. So I’m going to turn it off each night after the kids go to bed and not touch it again until morning. We’ll see how I do.
3. Run a 5K every week.
In the last six months I’ve started running again (after years of not), and I’m currently running right around 2 miles three times a week. My goal is to make one of those runs a full 5K.
4. Keep a gratitude journal
I’m not great at journaling, but I want to get better. I got myself the Five Minute Journal and I’m going to try to use it at least once a week. I think once a day is setting myself up for failure…but I think I can do once a week!
Do you guys set goals for the new year? Tell me one that you’re excited about!
