My 2018 Goals

Happy 2018! Am I too late? It's already the second week of January and I just sat down over the weekend to think about what I wanted to accomplish over this new year. I think the problem with goal setting is not having an action plan to actually carry it out- and just as important to setting the goal is to figure out how to get there.

Family

Making more memories this year and really being in the moment, it's so tempting to grab our phone or computer- but having at least an hour a day with no screen time or our air pods and just being together as a family. We are committing to having breakfast together in the morning before Jadyn goes to school instead of being crazy in the morning and doing our own things before we get her out the door. I'm hoping this small change will also help us start our day more relaxed.

Friends

I want to make more of an effort for my closest friends, I would say I'm a good friend but I don't make efforts to hang out or set aside the time to get together- I'm more a WhatsApp friend most of the time, you may talk to me pretty often but whens the last time we actually hung out? Hell if I knew. Anthony is even worse than me in that area and it's something he wants to work on too- just because we have a family doesn't mean friends aren't as important- I'm even closer to some of my friends than my extended family and it's really important to keep those relationships as a priority.

I'm going to set aside time at least once a month to make sure I see my closest friends in person.

Health

I want this year to be my strongest one yet, I work out and eat pretty healthy but I want to take it up a notch.

I plan to workout 5 days a week and doing one outdoor activity as a family on the weekends, whether it be a hike, bike ride or run, etc. I think it's not only important for my well being but sets a good example for Jadyn as well to get outside and move.

Education

I read a quote that the average CEO reads 60 books per year. Um what? I definitely don't read that much- maybe one book a month- but in no way am I reading 5 books a month. There's so many nonfiction books I've had on my wishlist to read and never got around to it. I decided I may not need to read cover to cover but I want to at least cover the important parts of each book.

I recently downloaded the Blinkist app and love it- it's really helped me read quickly plus I can do it in the car with the audio version.

Website

I want my website to always be a resource for my readers and making sure this year we expand in categories I've been thinking about since last year, along with reviving some other areas.

You'll be able to count on more regular content in a new category I'll be adding soon. Also the blogging tips will be getting a new upgraded dedicated section, really excited about this and something Anthony will be spearheading.

What goals are you planning for 2018? Comment below!

xx Brittany

    I loved reading through your goals. Making time for breakfast and family every morning sounds like such a great idea! One of my goals is also to read more since I don’t do enough of that.

    Great post to start off the new year! I too think it is so important to have a plan of action for your goals otherwise they become thoughts . My goals are to kickstart my blog, exercise more, and indulge in my list of books..

    Happy 2018! Can’t wait to see your updated blogging tips especially in view of all the technology upgrades. Can you and Anthony do a post (pros and cons) of the repeal of net neutrality and what that impacts your business and fashion blogging in general? Thanks

    These are such wonderful goals! I also am trying to be more present with family and keep in touch with friends better. Recently I’ve been just leaving my phone somewhere while we eat dinner just to get some off screen time!

    Happy New Year Brittany! Those are great goals. I Can’t wait to see all your new content for this year! My Goals for this year are to go on more adventures with my husband even if it’s something small, trying to cut out dairy and meat as much as possible, and to grow more in my career. 2017 was year of SO much change from getting married to moving across the country this year will be focused on settling in and enjoying the little things.

    It’s so inspiring to read other people’s 2018 goals, it always makes me feel better about my own! I’m actually trying to read LESS books in 2018. I reached my goal of 50 books last year, but when I looked back on them I just wasn’t that impressed with what I’d read. This year I’m hoping to read fewer, but BETTER books.
