It's almost mid-January already (what?!) and I'm just now getting to my January goals - that's what having the plague for the first half of January does to a person!
Since its a new year I'm starting off fresh and won't be recapping my monthly goals (mostly because December was a write off and I think I only accomplished one thing from my Dec goals...). I'm going to try my absolute hardest to make sure that I am working each month to accomplish my goals. There's just something about a new year that makes things seem more attainable. Let's hope I can stick with it!
In January I want to...
Get a massage
Through my benefits for work I can get up to $500 in massages every year and every single year I maybe get two massages all year long. This year I'm going to make sure I use up that money by getting a massage every single month. I think it will definitely help with my stress levels!
De-clutter and organize the spare bedroom
It currently looks like Christmas threw up in there so I need to set aside a full day to organizing and de-cluttering this room.
Organize photos on my laptop and order prints
I've been putting this off for too long and now that its a new year I want to start fresh and organized! I also haven't ordered any prints in over a year so its long overdue. I'm not looking forward to the price tag for this one though...
Read at least two books from my reading pile
I love to read but for the longest time I just wasn't making it a priority. I started getting back into it in mid December and I have a bunch of books that I'm excited to start so I'm pretty sure this will get crossed off for sure. I have another train ride to Minnesota coming up so I can probably knock the two books off in just that trip but I'm aiming small for this month since for so long I didn't make the time to sit down and read. If I read more than two then that's just a bonus!
Work on my photography
I've had my DSLR for a year and a half now and I still don't know how to use it outside of auto mode. I want to read some tutorials and play around with it a bit so I can function outside of auto mode.I also want to take some new blog photos so I can test what I learn then!
I have a post in the works about my 2017 Goals so I kept my January goals to just 5 things - look for my 2017 Goals post later this week!
