Every few months I got back to my yearly goals list to see if I’m achieving them, or at least, close to achieving one of them. I listed a few goals for the year of 2017 and I’m so happy that some of them are happening.
So far, I’m healthy. I haven’t gotten sick since the beginning of the year (and that’s a great news!).
I’ve been spending quality time with our daughters. I’m a homebody and usually they stay home with me where we clean the house together (this is a little bit challenging though!), read books, and draw. I took them to the park a couple times when the weather was nice. They also went for a walk with me. And once the weather gets nicer, we’ll ride a bike.
Using time productively is on and off. I get easily distracted but I’m working really hard on this one.
My workout routine is okay. My goal is to exercise at least one hour a day but lately, I’ve only been doing half an hour. But I’ll try to get back on my routine.
I found a part-time job! Last January, I started working as a sub-librarian at the local public library. And I really love it!
I started writing my second book last January and so far, I’m over 10,000 words! I’m so happy about this!
Be more frugal. We don’t have any expensive purchases as of late except groceries and buying clothes for Marie (that girl is getting big! She’ll be seven this summer!)
Practice minimalism. I’m so happy to get rid of unused clothes, shoes, and toys these past few months. We’ll be getting rid of more items in weeks to come.
For some reason, I never included publishing my first book. But the good news is I just did! Pesos to Pennies is on Amazon now!
I always believe in writing our goals and once in a while revisit them to see your progression. If it’s not happening, find out. Questions like, “Why I can’t make it happen?” “Do I invest enough time on it?” or “What things still need to be done?”
Procrastination is my enemy on reaching these goals, but I always remind myself of this list because I know we don’t have enough time to waste.
I hope you’re reaching your goals too!
