12 Months of Resolutions

Friday, January 2, 2015

As I mentioned in my why's and how's of New Year resolutions, I'm planning to have one theme each month this year. It's things that I want to work on for myself, to better myself, or to make me and others happier. I.e. I'm creating my own Happiness Project!

January - Read 25 books in 2015. I feel like this is pretty self explanatory. I really want to make a pretty good headway on my 50 books for 50 states, so most of these will probably go towards that.

February - Blogging. I created 6 very specific, yet reachable goals to work on in 2015. I actually started on them earlier in December, but this month is to really focus on them!

March - Fitness/Running. The Ukrops 10k is this month and I'm going to be ready for it. I want to make 2015 a very healthy year.

April - Relationship with John. Sometimes having a month to solely focus on a relationship is a blessing. So that is what I plan to do during April, which will also be our 3 year anniversary.

May - Boost energy. I find that having a million and one things that are hanging over my head to finish drags me down. Staying organized, creating and completing to do lists and overall physical energy will be at the top of my to do list this month.

June - Travel. I may not get to travel as much as I like to, but a trip to Kansas is in order for this month. I'd also like to sit down and create a "Where We've Been" map and a list of where I want to go!

July - Me, Myself and I. This is my birthday month and I'm taking it for myself. I'm going to focus on relaxation, and giving myself what I need.

August - Save money. While money won't bring you happiness, having a little nest egg will help me sleep easier at night.

September - Friendship. Friends are one of the best blessings in life. I want to take time to make sure they know they are important to me and become a better friend all around.

October - Craft. Crafting is often one of the first things to go when things get tough. This month is all about the DIY and crafting. More than likely I'll be making Christmas presents.

November - Be thankful. There is a lot to be thankful for in my life and I'm hoping 2015 will bring many more things. It will be nice to shut out all the distractions and focus on the thankful.

December - Faith. In the past, I haven't been the best Christian, but I want to become better. So the month of December will be devoted to faith and putting my trust in God.

If all goes well, I'll be a better version of me in 2015. What are your New Year goals?


  1. Awesome goals! And I like how they're broken up into months... that'll make them much easier to focus on! :)

  2. These are great goals, I like how you have broken them down by months. :)
