January Small Goals


It's currently Monday morning. David Bowie is playing over the speakers at my request. He died this morning after an 18 month battle with cancer and I am more upset over this than I'd like to admit. I remember my mom telling me about David Bowie and playing me 'Under Pressure' when I was starting high school.

Anyway, It's 8:28 AM and I've completed four tasks on my to do list of twenty five tasks. This will be the fifth thing that I'll get to scratch off and for some reason I've put off blogging about my small goals for January for about a week. I've been knee deep in goals, intentions and thinking about the next year for quite a while. I don't think I accomplished many of my December goals, and to be honest I don't know what they were. I was probably 3/5. I usually am 3/5. For some reason I don't feel motivated or required to pull them over. 

Regardless of December it's a new year and here are five goals that I'm totally going to crush this January! 

1) Take a class.

2) Log my work hours.

3) Move out of our apartment.

4) Become a Texas resident. 

5) Try to find a hobby. 

If I'm being totally honest with you right now, my life is looking much different right now that it has in a while, which is good! I think I'm just a bit overwhelmed with all the changes. I think I have change related PTSD for the month of January. I can't believe we're 11 days in already. In addition to these five goals, I've also taken on eating healthier, reading books, practicing daily gratitude, praying as often as I can, and logging all the money we're spending this month in a killer spreadsheet. I've taken these things on because the new year gives you super powers or something. Just kidding, I've taken them on because I realize I ended 2015 being really unhappy with my life and I don't want to be unhappy. Weirdly enough all of those things make me deliriously happy when I'm mindful enough to complete them. 

It's a busy month but so far I'm loving everything about 2016 & January!
