2020 Word of the Year and Goals

A few years ago it was the "cool" thing to pick a word of the year. The trendiness of it only lasted that year so I didn't pick one again the next year and didn't really think about it again until now. When I started to think of what my 2020 goals were I kept coming back to the same thing, wanting to live each day with intention.

In 2020 I want to be intentional with how I spend my time, money and energy. There are 365 days in a year and I plan to use every last one of them. On average I have about 4 hours for me each work day once I make it home; some of that time needs to go to cooking dinner and other household chores, but too much of it is going to just lounging around watching tv or scrolling my phone. Sure lazy days and relaxing and recharging are important and have their place, but honestly I'm not doing anything so stressful that I need to recharge for hours every day. 2019 was a great year, but it came with a lot of big life changes; I'm hoping 2020 is full of little life changes. I plan to live with intention  and check off lots of little goals.

I shared my 2020 goals on Instagram the other week but I'm excited to share it here now. I borrowed this goals worksheet from Katey. She has another planner and habit tracker on her website too if you're interested. The idea for my 2020 goals was to keep everything manageable and things to continue to work on all year!

Family - Eat dinner together at the table 3 times a week

Home - Don't leave dishes in the sink. Figure out landscaping

Career - Pass 2 classes toward my certification

Health - Workout at least twice a week. Stop junk food snacking

Spiritual & Community - Sunday Mass every week. Pray the Rosary monthly

Personal - Read 15 books. Get serious about learning another language

What are your goals for 2020?

PS : Pretending like its 2014 and linking up with Helene today!
