Completion is my word for 2017.
One definition of the word meant 'conclusion/fulfillment'. And I really liked that idea. Bringing things to a conclusion with a sense of fulfillment.
After all, I am great at starting things, but my follow through lacks a bit.
Then the fire. And I despaired. Because not only had we lost our house (until it's rebuilt), but I lost my routine, things I wanted to do. I was adrift.
But I realized "Completion" still fit, I just had to step back and readjust my plans somewhat.
Using Hal Elrod's Level 10 Life, I have come up with some plans for this topsy-turby 2017 (thanks Cindy and Christine for brainstorming with me).
Family & Friends
- Be grateful we are all hale and hearty
- Monthly 'fun' nights with family (of course, as competitive as we are this might not be a great idea!)
- Monthly craft afternoons with friends
- Monthly potlucks with friends
- Movie Tuesdays to stay in touch with Savvy
Personal Growth & Development
- Plan and deliver workshops for the library
- Look at alternate venues for workshops
- Stick to a morning and evening routine
- Monthly goal setting
- 175 books read and at least 1 book review weekly
- Complete Bite Me! - my NaNoWriMo book
- "Work" my various journals
Health & Fitness
- Track what I eat
- 10,000 steps daily
- Yoga or cardio 4X week
- Plan menus
- Pare down the amount of sugar in my diet
- Meditate and mindfulness to reduce stress in my life
- Set an allowance monthly
- Menu planning and shopping from a grocery list
- No impulse spending
- Use what I have
- Workshops through the library
- Enter work every day with a positive attitude
- Establish writing contacts
- Attend Miscon for writing in May
Fun & Recreation
- Craft days
- Explore Montana
- Miscon in May
- Movies on Tuesdays
- Following Rhomeny's Realm and her Pagan Planner for 2017
- Study and use my tarot cards more
- Give people the benefit of the doubt - be more open and accepting
Contributions & Giving
- Support bloggers who I enjoy and follow through Patreon
- Look at ways to give back to the community
- Try to remain as stress-free as possible about the whole rebuilding our home process
- Adapt to where I am now and work with it rather than against it
Yep - it's a big list and many of the items span more than one category. But I have to have something to aim for in 2017.
