Last year, at the beginning of every month, I shared a list of goals I wanted to accomplish over the 30 day period. Some times it went better than others (you can read about my experience here). I used "choose," my word for 2012, to remind myself that the goals I set were choices. I was deciding to do these things and could choose daily actions that affected whether or not I got them completed.
This year, I wanted to do something similar but adjust it a bit to reflect my 2013 word "brave." I decided on the phrase "bold intentions" and will be coming up with just three things each month to work on. I am paring down from seven to three with the hope that I am able to commit to each more fully. Each month I will also be pairing an action word with my one little word. This is an exercise from Ali's One Little Word class and serves as it's own intention of something to focus on.
In January, I have decided to invite brave into my life. My three bold intentions are as follows :
- embrace daily yoga.
- actively celebrate this last month Paul and I will have together as just two. (Remember he deploys next month.)
- take the first steps to buying our first house.
Here we go, 2013!
ps. I am currently working on a LONG blog post about the difference I see between goal-setting and "to-do" list items and how I like to manage both. Look for that Monday morning. :)
