Resolving | My resolutions aren't really the norm this year. I instead have a list of 27 things I would like to do this year. Some are silly and some serious. Of course, there is a lot I could add to this list, but these are things I've been wanting to do, need to do, or would just be fun. I'm using this list and breaking it down to form monthly goals and then weekly and then daily. To kick start the year I'm really focusing on these for January: read one book, write a letter to a friend, write my Compassion child, finish one month of daily Bible reading, wake up an hour earlier than needed, eat breakfast daily, clean out closets/drawers and take clothes and shoes to Goodwill.
Reading | One of the things on my list this year is to read the Bible in its entirety. I've always started this and then quit somewhere in March. But before, I never really had a plan that I was following. This year, I found a Bible reading plan that is five days a week, allowing for catch-ups on the weekend if necessary. It combines Old and New Testament readings with Psalms spread throughout. Other things I'm reading: And the Mountains Echoed, Having a Mary Heart in A Martha World.
Organizing | Blogging. Always blogging stuff. I attempted to keep a planner last year for just blogging things and it worked...for awhile. A couple months back, I deleted all the draft posts I had hanging around forever, because I realized that I really wasn't going to finish those. Now, I feel like I know the kind of blogging schedule I want to do for this year and I want to focus more on quality than quantity. I'm getting away from the numbers. Other things I'm organizing: my closets and drawers by getting rid of what I don't need or use and my banking account. This year I'm hoping to really start saving in big ways.
Loving | That the cold weather of winter finally decided to come with 2016! It felt like we were living in summer forever with that weather we had in December. So glad that I can actually wear cardigans and scarves now without feeling like I'm going to suffocate. Other things I'm loving: roommate and I started the Making a Murderer series on Netflix, that I can type fast and get this post out before I have to get ready for work, that 2016 decided to begin with a weekend, and coffee. Always coffee.
Craving | Something yummy and delicious and healthy to eat for breakfast during the weekdays! If I wake up an hour earlier than I want to, I'll have time to enjoy breakfast. I've been having breakfast the past couple of days and it's amazing how my body knows I've been eating in the morning and starts craving it. I need to look up some easy and delicious breakfast ideas...that isn't all eggs. I love eggs, but can get burned out on them quickly.
What are you currently up to this first month of 2016?
