One of my boards on Pinterest is about writing ideas. I am not a novelist or author, but I made it because I needed journal entry ideas, and now I need blog ideas. One pin I have saved gave many ideas, one being to write down my goals for the next thirty days. Here’s my goals for the next 30 days (April 19, 2019-May 19, 2019).
I want to cook more, and spend more time in the kitchen. It doesn’t look like that will happen this weekend, but over the next 30 days, I want to create my own master piece lunch and dinners. Whether it’s a simple pasta, or a fancy Pinterest recipe, I’ll be cooking.
I want to volunteer more. I volunteer with the Crisis Text Line as a Crisis Counselor, and at the beginning of the year I promised myself I would finish the time commitment. I’ve done 18.5 hours since January, and I have 37 hours to go to hit my time commitment. I’m hoping between today, and May 19, I can do an extra 6 hours. I’ve been striving to do 6 hours a month compared to the 4.75 hours that would have me completing in December.
I want to learn ASL. I already started a course on Udemy, but I have not been consistent with practicing and utilizing my time to learn the skill. In the next 30 days, I want to have completed the alphabet and learned some other words/phrases.
I want to stretch more. I’m good at moving the body, but I’ve been stiff a lot. I want to spend more time stretching and doing Yoga over the next month. I always feel great after stretching, but for some reason, I never do it.
My last goal is to donate more clothes, and fill my closet with things that fit me. I’ve been consistently losing weight, and I still buy clothes too big for me. Part of that is from online shopping, and not trying things on. The other part of that is from me just being used to wearing large clothes. I want to bring in a new wardrobe.
It’s just some basic goals, and in 30 days, I’ll make a new post about how many I achieved and how I feel. I encourage you guys to set some goals for thirty days, and try and remain consistent with achieving them. There’s no better feeling than knowing you accomplished something that you wanted to achieve.
