A few days ago I discovered that I have a crap ton of craft supplies. Like a crap ton, whatever that actual measurement is. I was cleaning my room and then found my journal. I actually forgot I had a journal, isn’t that lame? I spent like an HOUR writing in my journal, which felt really great. and I realized that there’s something kind of missing from my life.
I do REALLY WELL with goals. Short, attainable ones. Things to cross off. I love crossing things off a list. In 2013 I made monthly lists on a whiteboard and then crossed them off. I decided.. you know, I should really start doing that again.
and I was going to wait until January because the new year seems fresh but I am not about to waste an entire month of the year just because it’s the last one. So here we have it…
01. Finish reading Harry Potter & the Sorceror’s Stone [12.18.16]
02. Watch Harry Potter & the Sorceror’s Stone [12.25.16]
03. Add 50 things to my Gratitude Journal
04. Paint my nails [12.19.16]
05. Send 15 Christmas cards
06. Try a new recipe
07. Visit a new coffee shop [Prince Coffee 12.27.16]
08. Take at least one picture with my Instax
09. Watch ElfÂ Â [12.13.16]
10. Post 6 blogs [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
Also — I’m getting ready to start working on my new 101 in 1001 (seriously, it takes me half a year to write a new one) and I was wondering if any of y’all had any suggestions OR – do you have any questions about the 101 in 1001? I’d love for some of you to join me in making one! This next year I’m determined to make one that’s way more realistic, haha.
Watching Elf is definitely on my list for this month! Along with drinking tons of hot chocolate. Ha!
” I am not about to waste an entire month of the year just because it’s the last one” <— THIS. I remind myself of that basically every month when I feel like I need to wait until a new month to start something new- soo stupid. I love seeing 101 in 1001 lists! I'm trying to do a 17 in 2017, but am struggling with finding 17 things… going to check your current list for some ideas though!
Yes! I’m so glad you didn’t wait to set goals because I think it’s so silly. Every year, every month, every week, and every day is a new chance to start over!
These are great! There’s no reason to wait until Jan 1. If you’re inspired, starting now is the best idea!
