2018 Goal Setting: Part 5- Setting Goals

Welcome back to day five of our goal-setting series. This is based off of Lara Casey’s 5-day goal-setting series on her blog. We started the series Monday, so don't feel like you're too far behind. You can check out part 1 here, part 2 here, part 3 here, and part four here!

I hope you’ve taken the opportunity to reflect on your 2017 and really think about the type of life you want to live. This has been an interesting experience for me. Posting five days in a row and being transparent with the world was not an easy task for me. If you know me, I’m introverted and pretty reserved unless I really trust you. I wanted to prove to myself that I can do this despite the fear that circled around in my head.

Today’s the last day of the goal-setting series. Today, we’re going to set goals. I have several goals that I want to accomplish in 2018 but I will only work on a few in the first half of the year. I also have a few personal goals that I’m choosing not to post.

My 2018 goals can be summed up….

1. God’s Word 
2. My health
3. Our marriage 
4. My time
5. My growth (1).jpg

My word for 2018 is PRIORITIZE. I have to focus my attention on the areas God has called me to. I have neglected what is most important and placed way too much emphasis on trivial things. By God’s GRACE, I am determined to be intentional about PRIORITIZING my life so I can live on purpose.

I have saved the above graphic as a screensaver on my phone and laptop.  I’m determined to live an intentional life and no longer just wait for things to happen. I hope you’ve resolved to do the same!

Until next time.
