The following are all goals that I set for myself in 2019! Let’s see how I did…
1. Organize my photos
I have made progress on this! I’ve backed up all of my photos to my Google Photos app but I’d really like to go through and delete the multiples/screenshots/etc.
2. Delve deeper into minimalism
We have purged substantially. I currently have 4 bags ready to donate. It seems like a never ending process at times but we have made leaps and bounds in this area and we are finally nearing the light at the end of the tunnel. I realized I don’t need a white space-y room to live with less. I consider myself a semi-minimalist and I’m really happy with that.
3. Paint my kitchen and bedroom
I still need to paint the bedrooms but we did paint the kitchen and half of the halls a nice off-white color. My husband also completely remodeled the bathroom so that was a big project!
4. Go to bed by midnight
HA, let’s all laugh together. This has absolutely not happened. I really value my alone time which I only really get after my kids are in bed. I should value my sleep a little more… maybe this year.
5. Go on one date per month
I really thought this one would be easy however, TJ and I have gone on two dates since Olive was born… 15 months ago. TJ if you’re reading this… sorry babe!
6. Pray with my family
This we’ve been doing a fair job at even though I always think there is room for improvement in this area. We watch Bible stories on YouTube, we read the “Jesus book” as Winnie likes to call it, we pray at every meal and we talk about God and his love often. As for a personal goal, I’d really like to read the Bible in chronological order!
7. Continue to say “no”
I’m patting myself on the back right now because I improved greatly in regards to saying NOPE. Instead of overcommitting and doing things because I felt like I had to… I did what I wanted. I will keep this up… probably forever.
All in all I did a pretty good job. I never stress looking back at my goals for the year because SO MUCH happens that’s not expected or planned for. All I know is that I did the best I could and that’s all I can do. Ta-ta 2019!
