Well, it is clear I did not make it through my blogmas goals. Instead we found ourselves deep in the trenches of plumbing issues, winter finally deciding to show it’s ugly head, and an impromptu move that none of us were really prepared for. Toss in Christmas and it was just a true recipe for “not gonna happen” I did get farther than I thought I would and that is an accomplishment I will gladly accept.
The thing is, for the last several years I have always done a “Goals for (insert year here) post and I hadn’t planned on this year being any different. The problem is I have been…well…lost I suppose is the best way to describe it since probably about April. For the last 2 weeks I have sat staring at my computer screen trying to put together my goals and plans for 2020 and I have just kept coming up blank.
Then yesterday I came across a post by Crystal Payne who writes “The Money Saving Mom” blog. She and her family are in a huge season of transition and unknown so instead of making a few overarching goals for the entire year she made the decision to make weekly goals that are smaller and more attainable.
This got me thinking. While our current season of transition isn’t nearly as dramatic as their family’s is we are still in our own place of uncertainty. The more I have thought about the more I like the idea of small weekly goals, so that is what I am going to do.
Below are the general areas I am going to focus on. Each week I will set 1-3 goals for at least 3 of these areas. Some weeks I may set goals for all 6 areas others I may not. It is my hope that as I set these smaller weekly goals I will be able to see the progress I am making and begin to feel less lost.
Personal Growth (spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical)
So there it is. My plan for getting myself through 2020. I hope you will join me as I continue to make my way on this crazy journey.
Do you set goals for the new year? What are some things you hope to accomplish in 2020? Let me know in the comments!

Love this! I can see how it would be more manageable and sustainable. I’m up for a try.

What a month! I hate to hear about all of the challenges that have been thrown your way. It sounds like you did a great job of putting your head down and moving through it, despite all of the difficulties.
And I really like this idea of focusing on a few areas throughout the year. I feel like it would give me an opportunity to push a reset button if I got too behind on anything, when I would usually just give up altogether!
I hope you’re settling into 2020 feeling a little peace. Happy New Year!
