Today I am linking up with Shay & Erika for a new series called How We Wednesdays, sharing all about how we do different things. Of course for January we are starting off with goals & resolutions!
I prefer to set goals versus resolutions. Honestly, mostly because I think its more of a mental thing – resolutions to me imply that something is bad and I need to fix it, a little negative connotation I suppose. While goals are about improving myself, a more positive take on life. You can head here to see my goals from 2017 and last week I did a little check in on how those goals went.
My 2018 Goals:
Read – Since I finished last year with 32 books read, I’m setting my goal this year for just a couple more, I’d like to read 36 books and I want to challenge myself to reading a couple books from genres I don’t normally pick up (I’m off to a good start thanks to a recommendation from my SIL). I read a thriller/mystery novel in November and LOVED it, which was totally out of my norm, so I’d like to maybe try a few more of those.
Project 52 – Last year this was a successful one for me and I didn’t even really make it one of my goals. I documented and created a layout for every week of our year in 2017 using Project Life App so that it could be printed and turned into a book of memories. I want to keep up with it again this year but up my game a little bit, I’d like to try to take more pictures. There were some weeks last year when I had to really scrounge around for some pictures or take a bunch on the last day of the week to have something to use. This year I’d like to be better about snapping a couple photos every day, even if they aren’t anything special and are just our daily lives because those are usually my favorite anyway.
Bake Bread – This one is a little random but something I’d like to challenge myself to do! I’d like to explore the ways of bread making and try it out for myself, really just for fun! I baked my first loaf over the weekend and can’t wait to try more 🙂
Do you set goals or resolutions? How are you bettering yourself this year?
