My Goals for 2016
Are you the type to make goals for yourself? Every New Year, I try to make changes. I don’t like to call them resolutions because that would set me up for failure. My biggest change I made was at the end of 2013, I wanted to be more organized with our paperwork. I spent my New Year’s Eve getting organized after several years of just throwing our paperwork in a box.
I think that I fell into a mild depression this year. I barely took care of my houseplants (even though they are so calming). Last year, I took home some succulents my parents gave me and I haven’t taken care of them as I should. My African Violets are not doing too well in their current location, especially in the winter time. In the summer time, they thrive. They are right in front of a window and it doesn’t help that it is always so cold and that leaks inside. So my plants are blasted with cold air.
I also think my depression and health issues kept me from working out as much as I really should be. My energy and motivation isn’t where it used to be. I look back at my old Facebook statuses and they are all about what workouts I did that day. I am trying to get back to jogging on the treadmill more often! It’s been hard for me to find the energy and motivation for fitness.
I hope for a new beginning for 2016!
Here are my goals for 2016:
– Write more lifestyle posts. A blogger friend of mine is working to write one post a day for a full year. I am not sure if I could do that but I definitely want to up my game on more lifestyle posts!
– Increase blog traffic – I am already working on this as I am trying to promote my blog posts on social media.
– Make more blog friends. I am always looking to expand my blog circle and it seems everyone already has their little cliques. How do you make new friends?
– Take more time for myself. I plan on doing more for myself, such as caring for my houseplants, reading, or binging on my favorite shows.
Aside for my personal life, I am very happy with my blog life. My blog allows me to work from home and take care of my family. I do need more help from my husband with paying the bills as he is the one who works full time and makes a regular paycheck. As it is now, I pay all the bills. I work from home and my earnings are not steady. I think it would be less stress on me if I had regular help with finances.
What are your goals for 2016? Do you make New Year’s Resolutions?
