I’ve seen a bunch of people post small monthly goals and I really like the idea of re-centering and re-evaluating everything more frequently. It’s awesome to make yearly goals but it’s also easy to lose focus or forget about them entirely over the 365 day period we’re aiming to accomplish them in. Having small monthly goals to help get to those bigger picture yearly ones is something I’m eager to try out!
Oops, I totally forgot to do a February small goals post until most of the way through the month so we’re just skipping it and resuming with March!
Read all the books – Well, obviously not ALL the books because I do have the gift of unlimited time but I feel like I’ve had a rocky start to my reading year and I want to turn that around in March. Both of the books I’ve started so far this month (The Star-Touched Queen and Mortal Heart) are completely gripping me and I just feel myself emerging victorious from this slump that has plagued me since December.
DONE! I read a total of 12 books in March which I’m pretty happy with! One of them was Lady Midnight which is my longest book for the year so far at 698 pages.
Clean out my closet… AGAIN – I already did this one time after Marie Kondo-ing but I feel ready to do a second go around. I still have more than I need and I really want to pare down my wardrobe even further. Also along with this goal, I want to finish reading The Curated Closet!
Mostly! I did do a second clean out but I still feel like I could let go of more as I replace the things I wear most often.
3) Be more active / enjoy these random spring days that keep coming our way – I can’t decided whether to be happy or horrified with our recent weather but I do know that I want to take advantage of it completely! After our little mini-vacay I’ve been craving some outdoor adventure and I refuse to let the extra sunlight pass me by!
FAIL (but it’s not entirely my fault). The weather has been CRAZY but I’m finally feeling like Spring is on the way so this seems like a more realistic April goal.
1) Read at least 10 books – I have another exciting TBR set aside and I’m hoping to get through a bunch of backlist books before May, the month of a million new releases, is upon us!
2) Complete the #BookishPotter17 Instagram Challenge – I usually try to commit to 3-4 instagram challenges per month so if I don’t like a specific prompt for a day I can chose to take a photo of something in one of the other challenges but I’m pretty confident that I want to stick to the #BookishPotter17 challenge because HARRY POTTER<3.
3) Order & send out Wedding Thank You Notes – Andrew and I are coming upon our first wedding anniversary and the time has come to order and send out our thank you notes! This one has been on my goals list for months at this point but we just haven’t ordered them yet. This year, there’s no excuse!
