New Year — New Goals

Happy new year everyone, how was your holiday? Aidan and I didn’t go out or have people over but it was a nice chill night and a happy way to bring in the New Year!

Speaking of happy in the New Year, I want to talk about something that always makes me happy through out a year.. Goals. Yep, I like setting and achieving goals and this year isn’t any different! Do you have any resolutions or goals in mind for yourself? Something I like to do is to make a loooong to-do list and treat them as goals for the year. Usually the list includes a ton of house projects for me to tackle. Do you ever have one of those?

 A big list helps me focus on things that need to be fixed or finished or done and it helps me from doing a whole lot of other things instead of all of the little things that drive me crazy! 

This year separate from my house goals I will be putting a lot of time and attention into getting my business up and running! I already feel like it’s getting out of hand with things that need to be done and things I want to do, so having a list will help me focus on the business the way I focus on my home :) they do effect one another after all!

I haven’t started my list for this year yet but there is no better time than the present right?

As an example I will start with some of the house stuff real quick. This is just a start and I’ll be working on the full list over the next few days. Hopefully by next Monday I will have all of my ducks in a row, to shoot down one by one :)
