When I began blogging last year I did a lot of work offline to figure out my goals. This was partly because I wanted to get to the point quickly but also because I wanted to create a community. I suspected that beginning by treating the blog like a diary wouldn’t be the way to go. I don’t regret the decision as my first few posts get straight to the heart of what I wanted to do and have served as great touch points over the last year.
Since then, I have grown in confidence and have become much more open in sharing my journey. When looking at creating another cohesive list to help guide my decisions I decided to look at my posts over this past year.
It’s been an exciting year where I have met so many wonderful, inspiring people and I’ve given myself the opportunity to live an intentional life. Part of the joy of blogging is being able to better keep track of the lessons I’ve learnt while continuing to learn from all those who comment on my blog or post on their own. In that spirit here are a list of posts in which I focused on goals or tactics to help me be the person I’d like:
My vision for myself:
- What matters to me
- Who I don’t want to be
- Who I want to be
- Retirement Goals
- The type of home I’d like to have
- The way I’d like to decorate my home
How to get to where I want to go
- How to track what matters to me
- Goal setting for 2016
- Revisiting 2016 goals
- In case of job loss
- Saving electricity
- The variety of savings accounts and how I use them
- Ways to help offset my anxiety
- Creating balance so I don’t feel guilty when spending
Working on consumption
While ML & I will continue to work on our lists together these posts will also give me a great overview of the person I am aiming to be and help me ensure that my What Matters to Me II list reflects my hopes and dreams for myself over the past year.
