One thing I strive to do better in my day to day life is to set goals for myself: realistic goals that will still challenge me to better myself. So often I find myself thinking, “Yeah, I’d like to do better at that” or “Wow, I would really like to do more of that in my life”. The problem with these fleeting thoughts is that they lack follow-up and accountability. I’m the only one who knew I wanted to do that, so no one will know if I fail to do so. I didn’t write it down, so it’s not like I really planned to do that.
Because of this endless cycle, I’ve decided to incorporate a monthly post that will force me to face my goals head on and remain accountable for them. I sincerely hope this will push myself to follow up on those ideas that pop into my head and act as a regular reminder. Therefore, here are my goals for the month of May:
-GET MARRIED! Okay, this one seems like cheating. The bulk of the planning has already been done and the date is set. Nonetheless, I can’t wait to get married on May 24!
-Create productive to-do lists for myself for wedding tasks over the next three weeks. I want to have all of these things done before the big weekend so I’m not stressing too much at the last minute.
-Follow a solid meal plan. Sometimes I do really well with meal planning. The past month I have NOT. I want to at least have my meals planned Monday-Friday so I’m not wasting money on impulse purchases at the grocery store that I don’t end up eating because I ordered take-out instead.
-Have my new blog design DONE before I leave for the honeymoon. In June I’m going to be rolling out my new and improved blog design and self-hosted blog, but I’d like to finish it before the wedding.
-Schedule posts and social media for the two weeks I’ll be out of blogging commission. I won’t have access to the blogosphere during the wedding and honeymoon, so I want to have everything scheduled ahead of time so I don’t go completely dark!
-Take more frequent walks. We have a gorgeous trail right next to our apartment complex, but almost always end up taking Leia for her walks just around the outside of the apartment.
That’s all for this month, folks. The blog design and wedding planning are going to take up a massive amount of my time, so I don’t want to overload myself!
