February Goals

I honestly feel like the month of January went by nice and slowly. I enjoyed easing into the new year and getting a nice grip on making the most out of my new schedule. The first two weeks of the month weren’t the most productive outside of work, but I definitely got my act together for the latter half of the month and am content with the progress I made towards my yearly and monthly goals. Getting to put a check mark next to each goal you set out to achieve can be gratifying, but I find it even more satisfying to think about how the month went on a deeper level. The underlying themes of my January were 1) to say yes to more fruitful uses of my time and say no to distractions (I said goodbye to cable TV and late night Netflix binging in exchange for reading and journaling; also social media fasting) and 2) to take risks and put myself out there – socially, relationally, and even personally (I said yes to social invitations, consistently participated in my life bible study class, and challenged myself to be more social and interactive with the people who cross my everyday path). I feel so grateful for all the highs and lows that the Lord brought to January and look forward to what He has in store for February.
