Do you have your goals set or do you not do that? I have always had some sort or goals or resolutions. I have changed how I do them over the years. When I heard about Gretchin Rubin’s 19 for 2019 last year, I was intrigued. This year I wanted to do the 20 for 2020. I included things that are fun, things that I will cross off my list pretty easy and other things that will take a lot more effort. I wanted to run a marathon this year since last year I ran a half, although it was hard and I didn’t train properly. I know that I have a lot going on and the time commitment to train for a full marathon is more than I have. I know it is going to be hard enough to get the time in for the half.
My first thing on my list is plan our trip to DC. My husband and daughter have never flown and I haven’t flown in a lot of years. We are also going to be in a town without a vehicle, in January. We will be leaving next week so my trip has to be planned by then. I enjoy planning trips so this isn’t only something I enjoy but it is also something with a time limit. My daughter and I sat down today and planned our first day. We have our Whitehouse tour scheduled, our Capital tour scheduled and planned the rest of the day. This has been so fun but time consuming. I am so excited but I know it will be here before we know it. This goes to my word of the year, intentional.
Our lists are all going to be unique. Even if we have a similar goal, our lives are all different, our experience, life structure, etc. Even if you don’t do anything similar. I hope that you find fun things you want to do this year and put it on your calendar. Don’t let this year pass you by with nothing happening, be intentional.
