Goals for 2015

I make a lot of goals for myself. I like to have a lot of things to work towards and I take my goals very seriously. I know I get teased about having so many goals for each year. But I like to be specific. You can say “be a better mom” as a goal but what does that mean? In what ways do I want to be better? Again, these posts are for myself so no pressure to read it 🙂

They are in random order…here are my goals for this year:

  1. Really focus in on making Jesus my #1 priority each and every day. For my family, for myself…across the board in all areas of life. 
  2. Implement family bible time as well as a bible curriculum for Kye.
  3. Wake up at 6 ish each morning. Get ready for the day (look my best for my husband!) and have private time to study my bible.
  4. Update our will as well as our life insurance. Also price compare for our insurances to make sure we have the lowest rates/best coverage.
  5. Have at least 300 blog posts this year.
  6. Engage on the blog Facebook Page daily.
  7. Aim for a bedtime of 10:30 for myself and spend 10-15 min in bed reading before falling asleep.
