The Five Goals I’m Setting in 2019 To Take Charge of My Life

Goals are some of my favorite things and one of the best ways I keep myself motivated. 2018 was far from my best year and I felt like the majority of the year was spent waiting on things that were out of my control. Then suddenly nothing was in my control and I pretty much went into survival mode. And yall that is not the way to live! So for 2019 I am setting five big goals that, together, will put me back in the driver’s seat.

My Five Goals For 2019

Launch GinghamAndLattes.com

Woohoo, this is one I can already check off the list. Sorta. The launch was really just the beginning and I have so many more plans for this space, but I am happy to be making headway.

Drink at least 50 oz. of water per day

I am not usually one to make year-long health related goals because that is a really long time to consistently workout, eat healthy, etc. But drinking more water every day is a habit I fell out of that I know I need to get back into. So in 2019 I am going to drink at least 50 ounces of water every day. The amount may increase as I get on a roll, but this seemed like a good baseline.

Read twelve books

And Oliver’s books don’t count…or I would have reached the goal already! I used to be an avid reader but ever since having Oliver that has fallen by the wayside. This year I am going to take the time to read twelve books cover to cover! As Oliver gets closer to sleeping through the night I think I am going to actually have some time to myself to make this happen.

Downsize my craft supply stash

This is another thing that I am counting on Oliver sleeping more to make happen. I have accumulated an embarrassing amount of yarn and fabric. I had good intentions for all (or at least most) of it when I bought it. But those plans went by the wayside and I now I just have boxes of supplies. In 2019 I am going to use up as much of that yarn and fabric as I can so there is less to pack the next time we move!

Revamp my wardrobe

I have been hanging on to the same clothes for years. Many many years. The sweater in this picture was purchased before I met my husband. While some things work, there are other items that just need to go. I just turned 30, so those shorts from my freshman year of college might fit…but that doesn’t mean this mom needs to be wearing them in public! I am really excited about this process because I plan to take you on this adventure with me as I really dig in and build a closet that makes my personal mom style fun not frumpy!

I am sure there will be other goals…

I am a goal setter by nature so it is a constant thing for me. However, these are the big goals I am setting for my year in the hopes that they will put me back on track to feel like I am driving the train not being drug by it!

  1. I love your goals! I always keep a glass of water next to me and fill it up throughout the day. To make myself feel special, sometimes I will put it in a nice glass. The one I use the most is from Target. I bought them last fall, they read “Gather here with grateful hearts”. Not only am I drinking water, but it reminds me to be grateful for all that I have!

    1. That’s so smart! I have a giant mason jar with the ounces printed on the sides!
