Today is Day 50 of 101 days of blogging, which means I’m already at the halfway mark for 101 days of blogging.[Read more…] about Halfway Mark
You will heal. I will help.
The 2018 blog goals post is the last of the end-of-year/beginning-of-year posts. But this is one you helped write.
Seriously….thank you to everyone who filled out the 2017 Reader Survey! Here are all the things you told me, and all the things I learned:
So, with that, here are my 2018 blog goals.
2018 is my year to Embrace Change and because I opted to not create a huge “goals” list, I truly want to spend the year writing here and creating all the things for you.
In return, all I ask is that you continue sending me requests and ideas for things you’d love to see me write about and/or create (HERE). I’d also ask that you share this blog with anyone and everyone you think might enjoy it. You can click HERE to share it on Facebook with family and friends or just send the blog link www.sarahkayhoffman.com. And finally, I’d ask that you simply enjoy this blog for anything and everything it might be to you. I have truly enjoyed getting to know more of you this past year, and am looking forward to even more in 2018.
p.s. Congrats to Carrie, who was contacted, for winning (from the 2017 Reader Survey) the Beautycounter item of her choice (up to $35 value). I should do more giveaways like this in 2018, yes?!
I love, love, love setting goals. Maybe it’s my stringent Type A personality, but goals make me feel alive. That said, the 2018 personal goals I’ve set look vastly different than the 2017 personal goals I set last year.
Last year there were 14 personal goals set. From that list, the ones I accomplished were numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 (kind of because, well, the move), and 10. Additionally, there were several more unafraid/fitness goals set. From that list, the ones I accomplished were: running in general, race short distance, race 1/2 marathon (which I finally set a new PR – since 2009!), hike Yosemite – to address my fear of heights, and continue strength training. I did not do a full marathon or Spartan race, and neither are no longer goals.
This year, I’m making a list of just 8 goals because, well, change.
The changes that are happening and about to happen require me to just embrace them vs. trying to go above and beyond x’s 100 like I am normally used to doing.
I also want to blog, blog, blog. In addition to the usual things and topics I love sharing and helping you with – gut healing + living a healthier lifestyle and foster-to-adoption namely – there are so many “lifestyle” topics, events, and other “things” I have been tucking away that will surface.
But beyond those top 8 and blogging in general – that’s it (and yes, that’s a major cut for the goals I usually set at the New Year). There is nothing super concrete or lofty as in year’s past. There are no major fitness or food or big lifestyle goals. I am super comfortable with where I’m at and only have plans to keep doing the same things I’ve been doing the last several months – because it’s working, all of it. Consistency works. It really, truly does.
There are no lofty goals because I absolutely, positively must embrace change and I must help my children, husband, mom, dad, and JJ do the same as well.
I don’t expect that the year ahead will be predictable.
If anything, it’s going to be unpredictable, so I’m just going to roll with my 2018 personal goals one day at a time.
How about you? Did you create 2018 personal goals? If so, what are they?
