I feel really good about my January goals and am excited to tackle some new ones this month. I've spent a lot of time thinking and planning for each of them. They look much different than last month, and are a little bit more lofty. But I'm already excited about how they're turning out- and we're only 3 days into February!
Shift my focus. Quite simply, I need a break from blogging. I could probably list ten solid reasons for this, but they all come back to my need to refocus. So, this month I am taking a step back and literally shifting my focus. You won't see me posting much around here or commenting on your blog, either. But you will see some truly wonderful friends of mine filling in for me when I'm gone. So I hope you will still stop by, and get to know them! And when March rolls around, hopefully I'll be back in action and more focused than ever! In the meantime, I'm still alive. Email me or follow me on twitter and instagram. Let's stay connected, just in less surface-y ways than my blog :)
Speak love. This one is big. And needed. Last month, I worked on loving Justin more through serving him in our home. And it was really wonderful. This month, I know I need to focus on the words I'm speaking to him. Its so easy to fall into a comfortable way of talking to one another- and I want to check myself and the words I'm saying to him. I want to speak life and love. Words are powerful, and I want to intentionally work on loving Justin with my words this month.
Build community. For months, or maybe even a few years now- its been on my heart to start something. Specifically, with ladies. This summer, I was in the process of starting a book club, but then some of the girls got sick and we had our miscarriage...so it got put to the back burner. I'm still itching to get a group of ladies together for fun and (here's the cheesiness) fellowship. I think I sit around too much waiting to be invited to things other women have planned...and I want to stop being lazy and plan something myself. Whether its a book club (thats in the works!) or just a wine night- I want to build something.
Do you have goals for this month? Or resolutions that you're still working on? I'd love to hear!
