Okay, so yeah, February you guys. It is already almost half over and I am just getting around to sharing my goals with you. Yeah, I know. Good thing my goal wasn’t to post my goals on time. But anyway…
In the past, when I was blogging regularly I would post weekly goals. I like the idea of having a public place to post up the things that I want to accomplish, giving myself some accountability. I churned out a few goals each week but after a while it just didn’t feel authentic. I didn’t feel like I was accomplishing anything this way. Just a bunch of little stepping stones that didn’t take me anywhere.
So after fizzling out with the weekly thing I’ve decided to start fresh and lay out a nice list of goals for the entire month. This way I feel like I can focus on larger, more inspiring goals. No more puny goals, none. I do much better with a longer time frame anyway.
Still with me? Good! Let’s go:
Reach out to 5 bloggers that I admire.
I haven’t done a great job of getting to know people in the blogging world, I actually kind of feel like a recluse blogger. Blah, that’s so boring. I want to talk and meet people and say hello! It’s definitely intimidating to email someone out of the blue and say ‘hey, I like you, I think you’re awesome.’ Like really, heart palpitations over here. But to me it feels honest and I think people can respect that.
Start a new series on the blog.
I’ve had an idea for a little bi-weekly series floating around in my head for like…a year? Maybe? It’s nothing crazy but it is something that is special to me that would mesh really well with where I would like this blog to go… oh am I being vague? That’s my bad. More to come soon!
Work on Starting a Capsule Wardrobe
Okay, so I am over the top intrigued by the idea of a capsule wardrobe. I’ve been familiar with the idea for a while now but just recently did I really start considering it. I feel like it might be pretty hard to stick with but that it precisely why I want to try. And I mean, how cool is the girl that can limit herself to a handful of items and still manage to look ah-mazing (cough, caroline, cough).
I’m putting this in my inaugural monthly goal post but this one really rings true for the whole year. This is the thing that has most convicted my soul and something that I have a growing passion for. I went through time in my life where I genuinely thought that having more stuff meant that I would be less stressed, more prepared for whatever came my way. Imagine me when I realized that all the amassed “stuff” was actually a larger burden than the one I was trying to avoid. Go figure. There is a great deal of peace in living with less.
So that’s that. What are your goals for February?
