It’s that time of year when everyone starts to reevaluate their past year & plans for the next.
What did I not accomplish? What can I do better? What do I want to start doing?
& the same goes for me. Although I see a new year as a chance to for more opportunities rather than beginnings. I made the goal of last year to be more intentional with my time & to be more present in the that time. Yes, I do still spend a great amount of time on social media [I’m a Media Consultant] but I’ve made sure when I’m working, it’s tunnel vision. Then when I’m not, I’m not. A balance..
For 2019, I want to to spill over from my ‘18 goals [Click here to see my 2018 Intentions]. Carry over the same purpose & mindset of what I aimed to achieve. 2018 was a very successful year for me & I didn’t feel nearly as overwhelmed, nor did I feel pressure to achieve my goals. Why? Because they were intentions.
This year, I’ll making more goals but going further with the planning. I want to also list WHY this is important to me & HOW I plan to achieve this.
VISIT MOMMA EVERY MONTH
Setting a morning out of the month to make the drive out.
Now that I’m geographically closer, it would be rude to not. I can update her flowers & talk to her.
BE FEATURED ON A PANEL / BLOG
Continue reaching out to women in the area & increase my following [organically]
I have a handful of women that made the biggest impression on me at the ONE conference I attended last year. Their social media provides that connection now. I want to be that person for someone else.
RUN A 10k EVERY MONTH
I succeeded at running a 5k road race every month throughout 2018 [Click here to see all races]. This year, I’ll up my mileage & training.
Running clears my head [mental health check], keeps me in shape, & helps establish this family thing we do. It creates a vibe for the boys too. Like whenever they start recalling things, we want them to be all of us training & being together.
RAISE FOR WORK
Discuss options when I visit in February. I’ve shown my importance for the company in the past couple years so I’m requesting a change.
To continue contributing to our finances. It’s important to ME that I’m contributing a solid amount money to our family. I actually enjoy working too! Plus, it gives me something else to pour my energy into rather than my ‘Momma’ role.
ATTEND A CONFERENCE
Look up everything in Eventbrite & all the event holding sites.
So there are 2 different conferences I’d love to attend. 1 being for Mommas, specifically WOC. I need to find other strong women on THIS Coast to bond with. I would say I’d create one myself but I know of a couple out here already. I just need to attend them & see how it goes. 2 being parents of kids with Autism. Matt & I were launched into this new world at the end of 2018 & I need to learn more. I learn via others experiences rather than statistics.
Bi-weekly trips to Lowe’s.
It sounds silly but I not only kept 4 plants alive in 2018 but they flourished. I want to take more on because they make me set aside time TO care for them & love them. I also really want an aloe plant.
So there you have it! There will be other minor changes or improvements but these are the big ones. Hope everyone had a successful 2018 & is ready for all that 2019 brings them! Plants those seeds & watch them grow!
