I explained to you HERE what this post is going to be about each month.  For this month, I’m able to let you know how I did on January’s goals as well as let you in on what I’m working on in February.

While they are goals that I hope to accomplish, I also realize that each month holds its own schedule, ups, down and unexpected events.  In the end I may not knock everything off my list, but I hope to at least make progress in the direction that I’m wanting to go…my intended wing.

As I make my monthly, weekly and daily goals I’m taking into consideration:

  • the themes that God is developing in my life
  • the person I want to be later in life
  • the dreams He’s given me
  • the priorities I have in place
  • the reality of what needs to happen as I fulfill my primary role as wife and momma of 3

 

The more I’m able to discern the big picture clearly,

the more I’m able to take action in specific and measurable ways

to make sure that I’m moving in the right direction.

I have settled on 3 BIG projects or goals (plus one theme of sorts) I want to accomplish or take consistent forward action on and so you’ll see most of my goals fall under one of these 4 categories.

#1 – Start a podcast.

#2 – Continue down the path of healing and working toward a dream that isn’t exactly defined yet.  I will keep company with Jesus, listen and walk with Him.

#3 – Gather people to my home at least once a month.

#4 – Self-Care as something to learn about, share about and develop habits around.

Bonus:  #5 – Maintain those tasks that are important such as caring for my husband, home, family, business

 

Pounding away at my monthly goal of moving forward on starting a podcast.  Overwhelming but fun to think about and plan for.  #shesbecoming #fortyologie

Monthly Goals:

Work to develop the topics/themes I would like to focus on in my podcast. (#1) .   Did it and even got my artwork created.  Cue applause.

(If you have thoughts on what you like to hear about, that would a help a great deal!  Shoot me an email and help me out on this one.  You can email me through the Contact page of my website HERE.) 

Continue reading Finding Spiritual Whitespace (one chapter a day during the week). (#2).  Finished this book and you already know how much I loved it.

Finish The Rosie Project. (#4).  Fun read…if you are looking for something easy that will make you smile then pick it up.

Hold Graham’s birthday party. (#3).  Had a party with family and one with friends for G.  Also gathered some family, friends and daughters for a couple nights of girly fun.

Keep blogging schedule = 10 posts/month (#5)

Finish Lara Casey Powersheets – I haven’t completed these yet but am loving working through them.

Do something creative (lettering or wire word art).  Don’t laugh…I did some hand lettering with what I had at home and a YouTube tutorial.  I found it to be quite enjoyable and moderately successful for a first attempt.
