Throughout the years, I have tried New Year’s resolutions, New Year’s goals, monthly goals, and even word of the year. But, none have really worked for me. For the first half the year, yes, but as the year began to end, these fell by the wayside. I know that this year is full of unknowns, and trials to be had. So, I want to prepare myself with a mission statement in how to receive and view life next year.
I want to spend my time intentionally. I want to give full attention to Rhys, I want to have purpose in my blog posts, I want to improve my relationship with Christ and with Justin. Too often I allow myself stare out into space, or just surf the channels or the web. That isn’t improving myself nor helping others. I want to be intentional about what I say, how I react, and what I think. I want to make my time worthwhile and have purpose.
In a few weeks, we will be moving into my parents’ basement. We don’t know when we’ll be back in an apartment or townhouse, and we are no where near buying a house. I don’t have the budget to be better at blogging than some of my friends who spend money on light boxes, photoshopping apps, and new clothing. I allow the little green monster take over sometimes when I see friends with nice homes that they own, more than one car, going on vacations all the time. I want to be content with what I have and focus more on the little things. God gave me this life for a reason, and I should be grateful for His plan for me and count my blessings more often.
Bloom Where You Are Planted
I love this phrase. We need to bloom and flourish whatever our life situation currently may be. Again, because of all the unknowns, I really want to try my best to live life to the fullest whatever and wherever we may be next year. I have so many goals and ideas and challenges for myself for 2016, and I want to achieve them and not give up.
But, I do have some blog goals in mind for next year:
1) I want to get all my social media platforms to at least 500 followers each.
2) I want to start offering different variations and levels of virtual assisting,
3) I want to successfully run a blogger exchange, as well as a link up.
4) I want to transfer to WordPress.
5) I want to redesign my blog–on my own.
6) I want to improve my blog photography and image creation skills.
What are your goals, words, or mission statements for this year?
