Goal Setting

I want to talk to you about goal setting.

In 2017, I had set out to accomplish all of these personal & home related goals even though I had just had a baby that March – Followed by my husband leaving for work for several months in a row! At the time, it was just me, a 4 month old, a dog & a long list of To-Do’s. I accomplished none of it. I felt overwhelmed just thinking about buying paint and moving furniture with the two curious critters in tow.

Now it is 2019. I accomplished about half of my list in 2018 before adding to it for this year. I’m about to put the finishing touches on our laundry room (pictured below w/ fresh paint), which has been one of the bigger items on the list. I’m feeling super accomplished right now, even though it’s not quite finished.

So why did I give you insight to my total goal-flub? Because I want to remind you that you are a beautiful and talented human being and it’s okay if you don’t tackle your huge to do list right this second. You’ll get there. Some things take time. Maybe you weren’t absolutely ready to conquer those goals, but in a year or two, you will be. The important thing is to not give up, but at the same time… enjoy the now without stressing about the need to-do.

In the time that I didn’t accomplish my goals, I got to enjoy watching my daughter grow into the hilarious, but stubborn almost 2 year old that she is. I was there for my dog when she suddenly got sick and passed away. I learned more about gardening, nature, and an individuals impact on the environment. I rekindled my relationship with my husband when he finally returned and together we set new goals, while accomplishing some of the old ones.

My main message here is to set your goals, but live your life.

  1. Great insight! Our opinion is that you never failed if you truly tried. Sometimes things don’t get done, and that’s okay (and sometimes you stay up until all hours finishing a blog post lol). Living your best life is what’s important. We wish you all the best with your little one and your goals!!
