A new month and year have arrived! It’s hard to believe that 2021 is already over and we are in a new year with new opportunities before us. Though many people use January as an opportunity to start something new through making resolutions, I instead will be sticking with making monthly goals. I find that I am more successful when I set goals over resolutions. Breaking down my bigger goals into smaller chunks on a monthly basis helps a lot. Before we look at my January 2022 goals, let’s take a moment to look back and see how I did with my December goals. DecemberRead More →

The eleventh month of 2021 has arrived. We are getting wonderfully close to finishing the year and starting another. November is one of my favorite months, mostly because it is the month of NaNoWriMo – the month-long writing challenge. But the month itself is nice in other ways. The weather, while cold, is still pleasant most days. Hot chocolate and soup become regular features on the meal plan. But, like all months, it’s an opportunity to get stuff done. Breaking my large goals into smaller monthly chunks helps keep me on track and avoids the overwhelm of trying to get it all done at once.Read More →
