I thought since we were still in January, I would share some of my goals for 2021. Some are definitely more serious than others, but sometimes a list of things can be inspiring to others, and an accountability to myself. I hope to be able to post an update at the end of the year, informing you if I was able to accomplish my goals or not. Below are some of my more important goals for 2021.
#1 Read Through The Bible In A Year
This was a goal of mine from last year, and I will admit that I was unable to succeed. I didn’t read my bible half as much as I wish I would have. So, this is a repeated goal. It goes to show that goals are just a goal. It is something that you hope to do, something that you are going to work your hardest at. No one made you do this, but you have to keep yourself accountable. I have started back in Deuteronomy, and I am working my hardest to have worship time every day.
#2 Journal Weekly
I love to journal, but I don’t make enough time for it. I love writing down my thoughts, and I find it very soothing. A diary is a way to let out your emotions without having to burden someone else with them. I hope to journal at least weekly, if not more than that.
#3 Eat Healthy
I love eating healthy, and cooking is something I love. So the challenge of making healthy recipes taste good is something I thrive with. I hope to try my hardest to make as many new recipes as I can, and eat healthy as much as I can.
As much as I love eating healthy, I love exercise. I like being able to get my heart pumping! It is something that I have loved to do for years now. I know. I’m an odd duck. I already exercise at least 5 days a week, if not every day. But I hope this year to be able to exercise every day, and work on the types of exercise that I am not particularly good at.
#5 Read More
Now, I already read daily. Multiple times a day. Every opportunity I get. But, I tend to read more fantasy books, as in I read a lot of fiction. My goal is to read at least one nonfiction book every month. I might even write a review on the books.
#6 Put Back Money
Sadly, I don’t put back as much money as I probably should. I tend to just buy it if I need it. And as I am getting older, I do need to put back more money in the savings for the future. I hope to create a budget for myself, so I don’t overspend on the little things.
And last but not least,
#7 Be More Involved
I want to be more involved with my siblings’ lives, and with everyone else that I am close to. I hope to spend more quality time with all my family, investing in their lives. I want to be someone that they can look up to and respect and still be their big sissy, who plays with them, and loves them.
Those are my main goals for 2021. Sure, there are others that are less important, but these are my main ones. I think this will be a good way to keep myself accountable, and a way to be able to go back and check on what I had written down.
I hope that you set yourself goals for 2021 as well-if you having already- since they can be a great insensitive to do the things you have been putting off. But remember, even if you don’t complete those goals, there is always next year. You don’t have to rush to do the things that are just a goal you have set for yourself. Don’t rush them, take the time to enjoy this year. To make it a year of completion. A year of achievements.
