A 2014 Goal

Thursday, January 02, 2014

Happy New Year! Such a fun, non-controversial greeting to offer.

Every year at New Year's, I aim for my big three: doing better with spiritual quiet time, exercise, and meal planning. And every year, largely I fall short. I loved Lauren's take on doing monthly goals, making them more accessible. Need to think on that some more.

In the meantime, something I've been thinking a lot about lately is the focus of this blog. This blog is something I've had for a long time...my whole adult life, really! I have never really spent a ton of time working on a "theme" or regular posts or anything. Especially since having babies, my goal has just been to get here at least once/week (if that!) to share something.

So, I don't really know what upping my game in this category this looks like yet, but I want to work on it. Maybe be a little more vulnerable somehow? I don't know. It's a scary thing, putting your life online... and I want to be wise. It's a fun little hobby, but maybe needs some more direction? We'll see.

In other news, as I usually do, I've waited until after the first of the year to think about what sort of planner I need (or if I even need one). I tried using my phone only one time, and it didn't go over so well. It's synced with my Outlook calendar at work, but sort of hard to look at? Or access really quickly? Do any of you feel that way too?

My old love was the venerable tiny Moleskine weekly planner. And I may go back to it this year...

I had a MayBook this past year, which was cute and all (and I did love the interior layout), but it wasn't strong enough physically to be carried around in my purse 24/7, and I hardly ever pulled it out after oh, September.

Maybe it'll be one of those things like my one-page calendar...I'll end up designing my own planner. Hey, that's not a terrible idea...


  1. i switched from my moleskine and I wish i hadn't. i may abandon half way through the year and go back!

  2. I'm your biggest fan, friend! keep it up! (and thanks for the shout out!) Your blog is by far one of my favs (and I'm sure a ton of people would say the same!) Love your vulnerability about being vulnerable. Happy New Year ;)
