I have never been a huge fan of New Year's Resolutions, but a monthly to do list is definitely something I can do. When MaryAnne from Mama Smiles invited fellow bloggers to join her in creating and sharing goals each month, I was excited to participate.
I love to make lists--grocery lists, to do lists, lists filled with inspiring ideas, goals I want to accomplish...
I typically scribble them down on post-it notes or index cards. There is power in writing things down. It turns fleeting thoughts into something intentional and purposeful. I recently discovered the sticky note program on the computer and have even been filling up the desktop with virtual sticky notes. (I hope the hubby doesn't mind.)
These notes aren't typically items that I share. They are just there--for me--to revel in the things that get checked off and push the things off that don't. I want to be more purposeful this year though, so I'm joining up with several other bloggers on a goal setting journey. What a great way to be held accountable! We'll be sharing our goals for each month and providing a link up for you to share yours as well. Here are mine...
Mama Smiles--Joyful Parenting / 3 Dinosaurs / B-Inspired Mama / Happily Ever Mom / Kids Yoga Stories / Lemon Lime Adventures / Powerful Mothering / Smiling like Sunshine / The Educators' Spin On It / The Life of Jennifer Dawn
What are your goals for January?
Happy goal setting!
