Hello to all of Forgetful Momma’s readers! I am Becky from Crafty Garden Mama, and I am thrilled to be featured here today as a part of A Grande Life’s New Year blog swap. Our theme this month is New Year’s Resolutions. As an organic gardening, green parenting and eco-lifestyle blogger, I have a lot of areas in which I would like to set goals for 2013.
One of the ways in which I am setting my 2013 goals is by doing 31 Days of Resolutions over on my blog. I am following the schedule listed below, and I am hoping that by recording my goals, it will help me to put them into action. All of the resolutions/goals that I have for the year are things that I have been working on in my life in the last few years. I either need to take the next step with them (what foods we are growing in the garden this year and how to lay it out) or keep moving with them (the ever-present decluttering).
TUESDAYS (January 1, 8, 15, 22, 29) – Going Greener Resolutions (I have the Tuesday Greens link up on this day, so we’ll run them simultaneously)
WEDNESDAYS (January 2, 9, 16, 23, 30) – Crafting/Hobby Resolutions
THURSDAYS (January 3, 10, 17, 24, 31) – Finance Resolutions
FRIDAYS (January 4, 11, 18, 25) – Self-Improvement Resolutions (Fitness, Fashion, Beauty, Health etc. )
SATURDAYS (January 5, 12, 19, 26) – Blog Resolutions
SUNDAYS (January 6, 13, 20, 27) – Home/Garden Resolutions
MONDAYS (January 7, 14, 21, 28) – Cooking Resolutions
I like making resolutions and goals. I think part of it is the ex-athlete in me who used to shoot for records and figure out how far I could push myself. I like thinking forward in life and I do love a checklist. Instead of just making grand resolutions, I like to break them down into tasks that are achievable. That allows me to make a plan and execute it instead of just proclaiming, “I want to cook more or exercise more.”
Since I also like hearing what others have set as their goals, I have created a linky for each day of the month. So, if you have any goals for the New Year, please feel free to swing by and link up on the days that match your resolutions. It’s been great to stop by and say hello and I hope everyone is having a good start to 2013!
