GOALS | January 2019

Happy New Year! Today is Monday, January the seventh in the year of our Lord two thousand and nineteen and it is now officially the new year. I’m embracing it. Finally. Marshall is back to work, preschool is back in session, it’s my last week of class and it’s a full (full!) week of life and I am ready.

Last year at the ripe old age of thirty I realized that the Twelve Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day. Let’s not talk about how I’ve taught Spanish for almost a decade and included Los Reyes Magos (Three Kings Day) in my curriculum every single year. January 6th was just the holiday, and I never ever counted the days in between Christmas and that day, until I did. Twelve. Doce. Oh hello!

So my new mental tradition — twelve days of Un-Christmasing. Every year I am shocked at how much energy and time goes in to getting ready for Christmas, and then all of a sudden it’s here and gone. It kinda bums me out– but this year knowing I get to enjoy my Christmas lights, peppermint mocha creamer and Lauren Daigle’s Christmas album just a few more days and eaaassee back into not-red-and-green-everything life has been a gamechanger. Highly recommend.

Even though I eased into the New Year, I’ve been working on my goals for 2019 for over a month now. This year I bought the year set of Powersheets for the first time and actually did all the prep work throughout the month of December and met with my amazing friend, Sarah on NYE to hammer out the rest of the specifics for my goals. I’ll share my goals for the year soon, but for now January goals.  Let’s roll.
