On my other blog, Run Mommy Run, I wrote about my running goals for 2015. Click here to read about my running goals. I have more than just running goals for this up coming year, so I thought it would be more appropriate to share all of my goals for 2015 on this blog.
Writing my goals down helps me in accomplishing them. They will be recorded here and I will also stick them to my bulletin board so I can see them daily.
Here are my goals for 2015:
Buy only what I need, spend less money. I tend to be an emotional buyer. In certain moods, I find that buying stuff fills my needs (temporarily). I am aware of my behavior therefore feel I can get over this behavior. I have made some steps in 2014 to change this behavior, I want to continue with this more in 2015.
Live in a more sustainable way. This goes hand in hand with my goal to buy less, but it’s more than just that. Being more aware of my impact on this earth will help me make better decisions.
Ensure that my learns to speaks French, not just English. When I was at home with my son during my 1 year maternity leave I spoke to him in french mostly. Now that he’s in day care and immersed almost entirely in english I find it more difficult to educate him in french. I will not let that be a barrier. I will persevere in teaching him french so that he can communicate with his tantes, oncles and grand-maman in that language.
When spending time with my son, concentrate on him, and leave the iPhone behind. I’m one of those… I know. I have limits, like no phone while enjoying family dinners or when there is company, but I do have to admit to checking my phone often during the day. I need to take a step back and just enjoy living in the moment when I am with my son. After all, they are only small for a very short period.
Buy local more often (an excuse to buy more local wines?). I am very lucky to live in a region that is bountiful in local fruits and vegetables. Local antibiotic free meats are also available. Buying from local farmers markets aren’t only supporting the community but it’s actually cheaper and you get fresh products. This also goes hand in hand with being more sustainable.
Get back to drawing and painting. I’ve been somewhat removed from my art since my son came into my life. Also, keeping up with two blogs has me busy, however, I love drawing and painting and I want to commit to doing this more often.
I guess my goals are like New Years Resolutions. Do you typically set New Years Resolutions? Do you stick with them?
