My 2020 Goals

I love making new goals for a new year. I know a lot of people don't like them because they see it as setting themselves up for failure, but I think that working towards something is better than working towards nothing. Even if you don't fully accomplish something, you're closer than you were 12 months earlier. 


I'm also really into manifesting my goals and saying them out loud. It's so powerful. For me, if I say I'm going to do something, I'm going to do everything that I can to make it happen because my word, and my integrity mean so much to me. I want to always be showing up and doing the things I said I would. With all of that in mind, here are my 2020 goals. 

Start A New Business: I love planners and have used one every year for the last five or six years. I usually get them at Target, but this year I wanted something more from my planner. When I started looking for what I might want, I realized a few things:

1) I liked bits and pieces from a lot of different planners, but there wasn't one planner that had everything I wanted in it. 

2) I wanted a planner that I could write out weekly goals, have a weekly menu plan in there, have a full two-page spread monthly calendar, have a weekly planner, and a spot for a weekly gratitude journal built in. Not too much to ask right? 

3) If I found something that was even remotely close to checking off all of these boxes, they ranged in price from $40-$60. That is a huge rip off in my honest opinion. I would never spend that much money and would never expect you to either. 

Derek and I have put our heads together, made a few connections with some factories, and I'm fairly confident in my ability to launch this amazing new planner and have it set to $25 shipped for each of you. I'm so excited and cannot wait for it to become a reality. Hopeful launch is September 2020, so that you can have it for 2021. Stay tuned. 

Move to the neighborhood where the kid's school is at: Right now the kids go to school on the west side of town, and we live on the east side of town. We love the kid's school and want to keep them there. We also want to live in that neighborhood so the kids can have more social activities after school each day. We're keeping our eyes open for anything we can potentially buy or rent, and are hoping to do this by the summer at the latest. 

Run a race every month: I keep setting these huge goals for me to run another marathon and I keep getting injured. It's the most frustrating thing for me right now. Instead of focusing on marathon or nothing, I just want to have a simple love for running again. I want to run a race each month whether that's a 5k or a half marathon, or anything in between. This is a distance I can run with little training, and I want to just make running an innocent part of my life again without rigorous training. I think this will help! 

Blog five days a week: Now that I'm done with school, I have more time to be full-time with blogging again. I love this online community and really want to invest in it more. After taking basically a year off with little bursts of blogging here and there, my monthly page views crashed down to about 10,000 a month. They've jumped back to 29,000 at the time of me writing this, and I really want to get back to 100,000 a month by the end of the 2021. 

Year of no excess spending: I already wrote an entire post about this here.
