2018, Let’s Go!

dream2018

I love starting out a brand new year with thinking about my hopes, dreams, and goals. Some are realistic, while others take a little longer to achieve. I believe it is important to write down and visualize “your plans” for the year. However, I keep in mind that everything is on God’s timing and fully embrace His love and plan. As someone with a type-A personality, I have a hard time letting go of control. It is one of my goals to work on in 2018 🙂

Before I state my hopes, dreams, and goals, I always choose my focus word of the year. This word will guide the next 365 days. Sometimes these words just come to me, because of their meaning. Sometimes I have to think deep into my soul and ask what is it I need in my life? My 2018 word of the year is faith. As simple as it sounds, I want to use 2018 to grow my faith in God and His timing. In addition, I have a guiding question that allows me to center my year around. This year, it is: what can I do to change the world? 

In 2018, I would like to:

  • Love more
  • Let go of control
  • Work less and enjoy life more
  • Start the steps of getting my pilot’s license
  • Volunteer at least twice a month
  • Obtain my graduate certificate in middle grades education
  • Work on my novel and book series
  • Exercise and adapt a healthier lifestyle
  • Read more!
  • Become a better person, teacher, and writer
  • Continue writing for Forsyth Magazines 
  • Travel to at least two more states
  • Save more money for the future
  • Pass my PRAXIS II exam
  • Laugh more
  • Give thanks for all the blessings in my life
  • Be a greater advocate for mental health, active and nonactive military members, and homelessness
  • Write at least three times a week
  • Practice empathy more often
  • Smile at least once a day

What is your focus word and guiding question for 2018? What do you hope to accomplish in the new year?

Best wishes for 2018!

xoxo,

Megan
