With Christmas over, time to start a plan for 2018. I have some big things on my plate for next year that I would like to share with you. Maybe you will feel inspired too.
Make a Plan
The first thing to do is get your thoughts in order. Plan to make a plan. I have so much I want to accomplish this coming year that if I don’t plan it all out, I could fail. Everything from travel to an overhaul of my blogs. I like using a day planner or bullet journal to keep track of goals month by month. Plus they are fun and relaxing to put together.
Plan to Travel More
Make a bucket list and use your journal to achieve your goals. For me, an international vacation is on the list and about five other locations that are more local.
For our international vacation, we plan to go somewhere we have never been. Greece is our top pick but we are also considering Scottland and India. With so many places to go, it is hard to pick just one.
For our local stops, we are for sure going to Indiana to see family and we have to reschedule the Texas trip (since we still want to move). In addition, we want to check out Montana, Florida, and Alaska.
I think I want to move to Alaska more than anywhere else, does that make me crazy? I love the idea of starting my own little piece of heaven on a homestead. I love to garden and hunt so having a homestead would be wonderful, I think.
I am a huge shopper (even though I pretend to hate it). So next year I will be spending more time and money on me. I have a bad habit of over-shopping for my husband and kids, this time it is about me. Here are a few things I have my eye on:
I am always down for new self-care products. I work a lot of hours at my 9-5 and then running two blogs, I need to spend some time on myself.
Focus on Dreams
I have learned very quickly that writing is my passion (even if I am not great at it). So I will be focusing on the blogs and by helping others with starting out their dreams. Whether you want to start a bog or anything new just focus and believe you can do anything you set your mind to.
In the beginning weeks of January, I will be doing a huge overhaul of both blogs. Adding new categories and topics. I can’t wait to keep working on this though. I have even signed up for a personal business coach. The time is now, I will focus on this dream and I will succeed.
So what are your plans for 2018?
Are you traveling? Where to?
Where do you think we should take our international trip to?
