2018: New Year, New Goals, New Plan!

Happy 2018, everyone! I am excited to start the new year with new goals and a new plan. I spent the better half of 2017 trying to decide what to do with this site. And after months of not blogging, I have decided to revive my writing passion this year and find my voice in my blog.

At the start of every year, I like to make a list of goals for the year. Most people like to think of these as New Year’s Resolutions. I hate that. I always feel that resolutions set you up for failure. With goals, I find myself drawn to set up timelines for achieving goals as well as making spreadsheets to track my progress. (Yes, I really am that much of an nerd organizer when it comes to things I’m trying to accomplish. To start the year off, I’d like to share with everyone what my new year, new goals, and new plans for 2018.

  1. These are great goals! I struggle to set goals because I always seem to have epic fails. I like this post with setting something more attainable.
