Come on 2017!
Don’t suck as bad as 2016!
It is the beginning of a new year and time to look forward and set some goals for the coming year. I’m keeping them short and simple. Some will be the same or very similar to last year, others will be different. Last year was rough so I’m hoping that by setting smaller, simpler goals I can adjust better.
- Establish some consistent and significant income for myself – Those of you who have been following me for a while know that I have a very less than ideal living arrangement and I really need to change that. However, health issues have been a major stumbling block for me in this area and they are still persisting. But I am aiming to get some some of financial stability for myself so that I can move forward.
- Be kinder to myself – I am definitely one of those people who always puts others before myself, this has often led to me being run down and just beaten down in general. So in 2017 I am going to aim to take more time for me. I’m also going to work really hard at not feeling guilty about that.
- Knit myself a sweater (just one) and a pair of socks every month – This is one of those be kinder to myself things. I knit constantly for other people and while I do enjoy the process, this year, I want to knit more for me.
- Blog at least 3x a week and keep current with other blogs – I did well on this goal through most of the first part of 2016 but I think it was a good one and I want to keep going with it. There will still be weekly knitting posts and book reviews but I think it might help me if I blog a bit more about life in general.
- Recenter with my spirituality – Things with my ministry path have been on a weird hang-up with all the family crises but I need to get all of that back on track. I also want to take time daily to center myself and pull in some peace.
So those are it for this year. They are small and simple but that is what I need right now. Some should probably have better benchmarks but I’m hoping blogging monthly about it all will keep me on task. You all can help keep me moving forward as well.
