Can you believe we’re already 5 days into the shortest month? Since this is quickly becoming my least favorite time of the year (a lifetime of winters in the northeast will do that to you), I’m okay with the smooth transition from one winter month to the next. Bring on sunny skies and sundresses.
January was a pretty good month, and looking back on my goals, I’m happy to say that I got a lot accomplished. Of course, there is always room for improvement, which is where February comes in. But I’m sticking to my word of the year and ACCEPTANCE reigns supreme around these here parts lately.
On a side note, I accidentally deleted a majority of my emails yesterday, and while 2017 Charlotte would have had a very MAJOR meltdown about this, 2018 Charlotte is kind of relishing in the lighter load. Related: if you emailed me something pressing and it’s gone unanswered, please shoot me another email and apologies in advance 🙂 firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s see how we did last month!
Use my crockpot more frequently and cook at least two meals a week – the beginning of the month started out really strong, and then This Is Us happened and I was worried about setting it and forgetting it, lol. Okay, that’s a really lame excuse; I just haven’t been grocery shopping much BUT do plan on cooking more AND using the crockpot in February (also! I’m very impressed with Crockpot’s PR team—you guys rock!)
Start the new e-course I enrolled in (about newsletter marketing) and purchase at least one more course about pitching to brands. This month, I learn! – WHEE! Yes. I still have to start that pitch class, but I’m trying to stick to a schedule of learning and am really excited about the tips I’ve learned from my newsletter marketing course
No more slacking—we need to put money aside for home. Set aside $400. No excuses! – yes! Slowly but surely, we are getting there
Here are some things I’d like to accomplish in February. Do you have goals this month? Let me know in the comments and don’t forget to link up! XO
Personal—make an offer on at least one home; read 2 books; cook in crockpot more often/get back to meal planning
Professional—dedicate two hours a week to learning
Financial—we’re looking at an April move-in date, which doesn’t leave us too much time, but I’m confident we can put aside at least another $1,000 by then. That said, I’m hoping Bryan and I can both set aside $500 this month. Fingers crossed!
