Reading Goals Printables

    For the last few years I’ve been setting some reading goals for myself. This last year I wanted to track my goals better so I created some printables and it was really good to have that visual reminder of the goals I had set! I had a request to share the printables I made, hence this post . . .     I did just recently do a recap of how my ten reading goals went from last year, you can check out that video here:     Also, if you like books and book-ish things, I would love for you to follow me on Instagram and/or YouTube!   Two…


    setting GOALS FOR AUTUMN 🍂 a scary one, a decluttering one and more!

    I’m trying my best to live seasonally and I’ve started setting some seasonal goals and today I’m sharing my goals for the fall. You can also check out my birthday goals video I shared a few months ago. For these seasonal goals I’ve decided to help set myself up for success and I’ve broken up my goals into smaller actionable steps and little sub-goals. This way I can have the feeling of accomplishment as I get closer to reaching my end goal. MY AUTUMNAL GOALS complete 2016-2020 photo albums This was on my goals list for the beginning of the year, well, pretty much, I’ve checked one year off so far,…


    My Goals for Thirty-Five & How I’m Tracking Them

    Okay, so this post is a month behind when I would have liked to have it up but it’s time to share my birthday goals! I’ve been making birthday goals for the last ten years and it’s time to change things up a bit. Previously I set the same number of goals as the year I turned (so when I turned twenty-six I set twenty-six goals), but obviously that can get a little overwhelming and I knew I did not want to set thirty-five goals this year. So, I decided to scale back and only make ten goals for the year. Even that was a little difficult, for the longest…


    Thirty-Four Birthday Goals – Final Update

    Another year has gone by and it’s time for me to give a final update of my thirty-four birthday goals. I did not do well with my goals this last year, I think there are a few reasons behind this: #1 COVID – this really got in the way of life #2 fostering – this affecting things a lot more than I realized #3 forgetfulness – I simply forgot about some of these goals   How I Plan on Doing Better Next Year I still like setting goals though and just need to figure out a way to set things up so I do better next year and I have…


    Birthday Goals Update

    Every year around my birthday I make a set of goals and I thought I would actually do a mini update now of my goals that I set back in May. This is my “six-ish” month update, okay, maybe more like almost eight months. Since it’s not that far before I’ll do my final update, I think I’ll just briefly touch on the goals that I have not reached yet, well, I’m also not going to include the goals that I am no longer interested in reaching. Then in May I’ll do a full update sharing how I did with each of the goals.     BIRTHDAY GOALS I HAVE…


    My Goals for 2021

    I love setting goals and intentions each year. To be honest, I know some people like to distinguish between the two, and even I have at one point, but really, they are pretty much the same thing. I don’t really do much in the way of measurable, “SMART” goals. I just make goals and then look back at the end of the year and see if I think I did a good job or not.   My word/theme for the year is love one another. I wrote a bit about that already but I was keeping that in mind while creating my goals.     I decided to try to…
