Everyday Living

Goals

 

We are just less than one week into 2017 and I'm already enjoying this NEW YEAR. It's been nice to recharge and reset, and I feel so ready and excited to jump into this year and make it my best yet. If you read my New Years Day post, I shared a quote I love...

“A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline.” ~Harvey MacKay

This year I have so much I'd like to accomplish both personally and professionally. If I share my intentions with you all it's a great way for me to not only put pen to paper but be more accountable than ever to actually meet my deadlines. So here we go...

Professionally

  1. Schedule. I need to actually put together a content schedule for my blog. Sometimes it might (or might not) look like I post on the fly, but I do. Most often I decide daily what I want to post, so this year I'm going to actually plan ahead.
  2. Content. Speaking of content I want to expand on my existing content and include more Travel, Food, Recipe, and Beauty.
  3. Writing. I want to write and post more blog posts weekly. I've always loved writing so this is a fun outlet to hone my writing skills and improve on my proofreading.
  4. Photo editing. I've been taking and editing my photos but I want to learn all the in's and out's of Lightroom & Photoshop
  5. Networking. For Christmas, my hubby surprised me with a trip in March to a blogger convention in Beverly Hills (I'm SUPER excited). I've absolutely loved meeting so many talented bloggers and would love to continue to network and collaborate in 2017.

Personally

  1. Let Go and Let God. 2016 was a tough year health-wise. I want to remember that some things are out of my control and it's best to just let go - what is meant to be will happen.
  2. Get Organized. I'm taking it back old school and keeping a paper calendar friends! I purchased this adorable Kate Spade one from Paper Source and love it! I've definitely become more forgetful. Since I'm a visual person jotting down notes, dates, and events in addition to keeping a GOOGLE calendar will make life easier.
  3. New experiences. Once a week, I want to do something special with my kiddos. It's so easy to get stuck in a routine; one way to try to keep things fresh is to intentionally mix things up and do something new, whether that be trying a craft, going on an adventure, taking a nature walk, or playing a new game, etc. These new experiences will create amazing memories for all of us.
  4. Finish decorating. We're slowly getting settled and making each room just right for us - and some rooms are done - but our master bedroom and sitting room, the guest bedroom, and the kitchen are all still a work in progress. I'd love to continue our Home Tour Reveal and share those spaces with all of you.
  5. Stay creative. I want to challenge myself to paint, take pictures, maybe learn calligraphy? The sky is the limit. Instead of picking up the smartphone or the TV remote, I'll pick up a book instead.

What are your top professional and personal goals for this year? Let me know in the comments below!

XO,

Doreen
