How can 2018 be halfway over?

on July 5, 2018

It’s July! The year is halfway over! I thought it was time to look at my goals and see where I’m at. I’m not a big resolutions fan, but each year I do like to jot down some things I’d like to try to accomplish in the new year. If nothing else, it serves as reminder of “Oh, yeah! I did want to do/try/check out that place/hobby/whatever.” Sometimes it’s to get me in a new habit, sometimes it’s simply a reminder. It’s pretty loose and fast.

I wrote down 11 items for 2018. It was a big list, to big in fact. Some were carryovers from the previous year, but even so. Next year’s list will be shorter.

Completed Goals

  • Land one (1) new freelance gig
  • Pay off student loan (FREEDOM!!!)

    In-progress Goals

  • Knit a sweater – This has been so fun! Challenging and fun and I’m so glad I finally did it.
  • Get certified in Google Analytics – This ties into a work goal.

    Not-Yet-Started-But-Still-on-the-List Goals

  • Make meditation a regular practice
  • Update the blog more often

    The rest of the goals don’t interest me anymore, so off the list they go.

    For the second half of 2018, I’d like to:

  • Finish my sweater. I’ve got about four inches left, then weaving in ends, then blocking. I’ve enjoyed this project so much and am excited to finish it (and start a new one!).
  • Get certified in Google Analytics.
  • Update the blog more regularly.
  • Make meditation a regular practice.
  • Tied into the last one, I want to practice yoga more often. I feel SO good when I do yoga, so the trick for me is to make it regular habit. I’ve got to remember even 15 minutes is great.

    Looking at the new list, there is definitely a them of doing things that make me happy. This year has had some challenges, so I think it’s especially good to do things that make you happy and keep you positive, or at least relatively calm.
