2014 Goals: Start Fresh in June


In a brief and brazen moment, shared my 2014 goals with you in this post. Since then, I’ve continued to be mindful of them personally, but I haven’t been brave enough to revisit them publicly on the blog as I promised.

In fact, if I’m being really honest, this is the first time I’ve actually taken the time to sit down and re-read them myself.

And, as I read over them now, I realize that I’ve been even less mindful than I thought. There are a few core goals I’ve kept in mind, like working out regularly, but I’ve honestly forgotten about some of the others, such as regular date nights.

Lara Casey is a huge source of motivation and inspiration for me. Last month, she wrote about starting fresh in May (#StartFreshMay). When I read her post, I loved the idea, but I felt pretty on track at the time…or maybe I just wasn’t ready to fully commit to restarting.

Either way, rereading my goals tonight has made me realize I seriously need a restart. So, I’m starting fresh this month. Anyone else want to join me in Starting Fresh in June?

I’m printing my goals (for the first time, shamefully) and spending time with them this weekend. I’m plan to:

Review what’s working.

Refine what’s not working.

Redefine what matters most.

I’ll meet you back here on Monday with an updated list. I promise this time.

PS – Publicly sharing my goals is way out of my comfort zone. I’m insecure and terrified at the same time. Just needed to admit that.

Update: I ended up breaking up my June goals into two posts. Here is a link to Part 1 and another to Part 2.

And, I’m linking up with Hayley at The Tiny Twig.
