Happy New Year!
I am not a resolution setter, I am a goal setter. I can wrap my head around setting goals. I sit down, think about the things I want to do and write down the steps I need to take in order to accomplish my goals.
December was a crazy month for me. My birthday is on the 19th, then Christmas, and the end of 2016. Birthdays and New Years always make me think about what I have accomplished and realize where I want to be. This year I turned 25. I’ve been an “adult” for 7 years. However this year I realized that I wasted a lot of time getting wasted.
This year, I want to organize my life. De-clutter, save money, and anything else you might deem as Adulting
I have my goals written down in 3 places – the back of my planner, a page on my wall, and sticky notes on my dry erase board. The planner is my general list, it doesn’t have any steps. My sticky notes are my actual steps to complete… I have a “Do” section and a “Done” section. It is incredibly motivating to see what I have done, rather than feeling overwhelmed by what I need to do. I put each and every little step.
In December, I read a book called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. This book taught me to only have things that spark joy. I managed to throw away four big garbage bags of old clothes, papers, knick knacks, and other things I will never miss. This book really did change my perspective on life. I now consider myself a minimalist.
I plan to share my experiences as a millennial on this blog. Please share your thoughts in the comments down below.
