Goal-Setting 2014...Ready, Set, Go!

Okay, so now that morning sickness, exhaustion, and an aversion to coffee are behind me (not to mention the stress and over-packed weeks of the holiday season) I think I might actually be ready to be back! I have to be honest, I didn't intend to take such a long hiatus from the blogging world, but somewhere between taking care of my now one-year-old and finding out we had number two on the way (very exciting!) I just lost any ability to keep a schedule or use my brain beyond block-stacking and banana-peeling. But (deep breathe) this morning I took my first sip of home-brewed coffee with coconut creamer in months and thought, "I think I might be ready."

I didn't intend to include blogging in my New Year plans...I already have enough things I desire to accomplish stacked sky high in that never-ending checklist located somewhere in the dark recesses of my brain. As I type, though, I am thinking that maybe by committing to blogging just once a week I can not only start rebuilding somewhat of a weekly schedule but also give myself a bit of accountability to accomplish some of the goals I do have for myself.

I was talking over dinner with some family members last night and the conversation turned towards ways in which we keep ourselves motivated and accountable to accomplish our goals. It got me thinking, what helps me achieve the hazy visions I start out with in my mind? I think that, for me, defining the goal, writing it down, and letting others know my plans all help lead me towards accomplishment of what I set my mind to. So here goes, my unintentional first goal of the new year: blog once a week.

I look forward to hearing from you along the journey, and would love to know what tools help you to accomplish goals you set for yourself
Happy New Year, and I'll see ya next week!
