Month in Review: January

And just like that… January was over! Well, not quite -- but this is the last week of the first month of the year and I thought of a new way to hold myself accountable for the goals that I’ve set up for myself this year; to blog about them. Back in my Look Back at 2018 post, I mentioned that I have a few goals that I will be working towards throughout the year and in my post last week, I mentioned that I would be starting a new series every month and this is it. I’m calling it “Month in Review.” Catchy.. I know.

A Look Back at 2018

I have a bit of a tradition when it comes to the New Year -- my dad and I toast to the New Year with pink champagne and I tell him about what I hope to accomplish. Sometimes, it’s fairly simple things, like making sure all of my dishes are washed before going to bed at the end of the night and other times --like this New Year’s-- it’s things that are fairly substantial; like have a first draft of the children’s book I want to write. This 2019 goal felt daunting when I spoke the words aloud and it actually caused me to realize something about myself that I’ve always known by have kind of ignored: I’m easily discouraged.
