Every year I make it a point to focus on goals rather than resolutions. I find it much easier to achieve what I want to without feeling that there is added pressure. To me resolutions tend to get thrown to the side whereas goals are something that you should strive to complete.
I tend to limit how many goals I focus on because I do not want to be overwhelmed.
Here is what I am focusing on this year:
*Finances. I rarely discuss finances on my blog but I figured I would break my own rule for the sake of this post. Kyle and I have always been pretty good with money and we do our best to not spend frivolously. We only have 2 pieces a debt, a small credit card and my car payment. Our goal this year is to pay off my car, we bought it last March and would love to have it paid off my the end of the year. With my plan this year which includes putting our entire tax return towards that loan and continuing to make additional principle payments we can successfully have my card paid off in December. Which would be 2 1/2 years early. In addition to that we will continue monthly transfers into savings as well as E's college account.
*Health. While I do run on a regular basis I need to get back into my healthier eating habits. I don't eat terribly but I tend to skip meals and that is not good (believe me I know). I am going to start planning my breakfasts and lunches in advance so I have no excuse to not eat.
*Be More Present. As we all know we live in a world where technology is such a huge part of our every day lives however it shouldn't have to be. I want to make it a point to have at least 2 hours daily where technology is not involved. I want to be present and focus on my family as well as myself. E is already growing too fast and I don't want to miss a moment.
*Declutter. With a move happening this year some major decluttering needs to happens. We have so much stuff that we don't use and it's getting out of control. We have a rule that if we haven't used something in 3 months it gets donated or tossed. I will begin this process this weekend and I can't wait!
I'm excited for attack these goals this year and make 2017 amazing!
