February 2015 Goals
I cannot believe it’s February already. My husband and I have agreed that January is a month to figure out the trajectory for the rest of the year, and in the end, our annual big-picture goals actually reflect the course of 11 months. Who’s with us on that?
A quick recap of my January goals:
1. Read (that means finish) at least two books. Oops. I did not finish two books. I started them, but the struggle is always to finish them.
Keep a DAILY gratitude journal. My word of 2015 is gratitude, and I want gratitude to become a way of thinking for me. Yes, I did keep a daily gratitude journal. I forgot to write something down every day, but I caught up the following day. I plan to continue this for the whole year.
Exercise 12 times. Yes, and I want to take this to the next level in February.
Onto goals for February…
1. Run 3 times a week and strength train 2 times a week. (a more specific measure of working out 3 times a week)
2. Continue to write in my gratitude journal EVERY DAY.
3. Love my colleagues well. I’m a bit worn out this school year, especially during this time of year. And I don’t want to take that out on my colleagues. One way to specifically love my colleagues well is to write at least 5 anonymous notes of love and encouragement this month.
I will continue to read and reflect on these affirmations every day:
I will seek and express gratitude every day.
When I make a mistake, I will accept God’s forgiveness and grace, and move forward.
I will see the best in my husband.
I will not compare myself to others.
How did your January goals go? And I’d love to hear what your February goals are!
