So, I know in terms of the blog world, I’m kind of behind the times in setting goals for a new year and sharing that with you, but I think that fits me pretty well. I’m different. I try really hard to be like everyone else but each time I completely fail at it, I’m reminded that I’m not everyone else. Even when it comes to how I’m setting goals this year.

If you’re anything like the average girl, you might set goals or resolutions. Maybe something like, “lose weight” or “quit smoking” or “be more organized”. Sound familiar? Y’all, every year for as long as I can remember I’ve tried that and failed…miserably. Are you with me?

This year I’m trying something different. I know I’ve said this before but since being diagnosed with chronic depression and anxiety, I just can’t make big sweeping goals or resolutions. And when I do, life becomes overwhelming really fast. So this year, I’ve decided to pick a goal for each week in the month.

For example, in January I chose four goals to focus on – not exactly small ones but definitely doable for me – that would make an impact either in my home, for me or my family.

My goals for January 2014:

  • Finish my niece Katie’s wedding invitations
  • Clean out and reorganize the guest bedroom closet/Christmas and holiday decor
  • Organize built in cabinets in the basement
  • Clear out the filing cabinet and purge/scan/file/shred 
The first two goals are complete! The cabinets in the basement are much better, but I still need to finish up our DVD collection. The filing cabinet is still a work in progress and I’m happy to carry it over as a project for February. All of these projects will be coming to a blog *ahem* near you soon so keep an eye out!

How are you setting goals this year? Are you a big resolution setter or are you more small goals like me? I’d love to hear what you do to keep your year moving along.
