Three Things: New Year Goals

 I don't really have New Year's Resolutions, haven't done those for a while. I typically only do a word of the year.

But there are three things that came to mind when thinking of any possible changes I wanted to make for 2018.

  • Read 40 Books
    • My goal last year was 30, and I read 55. Figure 40 is a good middle ground, since hopefully this year we will become foster parents and also I will be in school all year rather than just half the year.
  • Eat More Fruit 
    • Aiming for one piece of fruit each day M-F. I typically eat some for breakfast, but probably not enough. 
  • Donate blood 6 times
    • This is the most you can do in one year, because you are supossed to wait a certain amount of time between donations (56 days?). I managed 4 last year and would really like to do it a full 6 this time. I love this because it's free (I actually usually get snacks & a tee shirt) and helps people without me actually having to do that much. Also it takes less than an hour and saves 3 lives per donation...yes please. It's literally one of the easiest ways to be a kind person and support your community/humanity as a whole. 

So there ya go. Nothing super life changing, but achievable goals to help my life reflect my goals.

Do you have any goals for the new year?


  1. Awesome!

    I'm going back to monthly goals this year. It's been quite a while since I did that!

  2. I feel like I came up with a word, but I forgot it. Obviously, I'm real stellar at these things.

    Maybe it should be something like a mix of 'priority' and 'focus' and 'saying no' and 'delegating'.. Is there a word like that? I need it.
