January Goals – 2019 Goals Series

January Goals - 2019 Goal Series: Starting the year of 2019, I will be posting my monthly goals and status checks in order to keep me accountable and on task.

Hey Curlies,

The end of the year was a busy time for me so I was a little ghost on the blogging front but I was fairly active on the social media front. Starting the year of 2019, I will be posting my monthly goals and status checks in order to keep me accountable and on task.


Word (s) of the Year

After some slight thought, I decided on my word(s) for the year. Unlike most, I don’t think deeply or pray intensively about my word choices. Instead I go with the first word that comes to mind which meant that the last two years previous I had the same word. This year two words came to my mind:

January Goals - 2019 Goal Series: Starting the year of 2019, I will be posting my monthly goals and status checks in order to keep me accountable and on task.

Small – For several years, I have been making large scale changes to my life but I think that my life is stable enough that now I can focus extensively on the details. Making numerous small changes that allow me slightly change and enhance my life.

Steadfast – resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering

As a result of making numerous large changes to my life I didn’t have to worry about being steadfast. Once the changes were made, they were made. But with making small changes and for the changes I am making being steadfast is required. Without it, my small changes would revert and essentially be useless.
