I'm a fan of goals. Short term, long term, big and little. I will even write something on my to-do list that I've already done just to mark it off. Yes, I'm that person. So, I've seen a lot of people do goal posts and I thought I would join in. There are things that I hope to do this year and I actually want to do them. Small, little, short term, long term. So, this year, I'll be joining in and posting my goals at the beginning of the month and then recapping the next month to see how well I followed through. Feel free to keep me accountable on these things!
Read two books | I actually have a goal to read 24 books this year, that equals out to two a month. So, this goal will be seen every month and hopefully I stick with it. 24 books may not seem like a lot to some, but I have a habit of getting on a reading frenzy for awhile and then just not reading anymore! Hopefully this will be a good pace for me this year. Check out the BOOKSHELF to see which two I'm reading now and all the books I chose for this year!
Make and try two new recipes | This is another one that I'm hoping is seen every month. I got several new kitchen appliances for Christmas, as well as some great cookbooks. Now is the time to put it all to use!
Create a Facebook page for Polished Arrow | I've thought about creating a Facebook page for my blog for awhile now. Facebook is about the only social media platform that my blog doesn't have a presence on. I like the idea of having a page where everyone can see post updates and news easily. Branching out to Facebook also means that more of my friends and family will probably find my blog. Which is a thing that both excites and terrifies me. What are your thoughts? Do you have a Facebook page for your blog?
Draw...something | I used to love to draw, especially in high school. I've always had tons of crayons, colored pencils, and sketchbooks. But, like my journals, sometimes my sketchbooks don't get filled up completely before moving on to a new one. One of my aunts gave me a ton of new art supplies for Christmas. And I'm so excited to open it all up and just draw...something! I've even found a drawing class in my area that I'm thinking about taking in the Spring. In the meantime, I might look around for a fun drawing/art challenge. Do you know of any?
Write at least two letters and mail them | I love writing and sending letters to people, just as much as I love getting something in the mail! I have a few pen-pals (some of them are you guys!) that are just fantastic. And their letters always come at the best time. The Lord knows exactly when we need encouragement and sometimes He gives me that through a letter. This month I want to write at least (possibly more) two letters and put those stamps to good use and hopefully send someone some encouragement and happiness right when it is needed.
