One of the great joys of making Semi-Together (and there are many!) is that it keeps me focused on my goals throughout the year.
I can’t just commit to a new habit in January and then conveniently forget about it. Melia and I now share our goals for the year on the podcast, and it motivates me and makes me feel accountable to someone besides myself. So thank you, dear reader/listener! You’ve been a big help, even if you didn’t know it.
The big themes for my 19 for 2019 goals were Relationships, Travel, Creative Projects, Paid Work, and Health/Wellness. Now I’m mulling over my 20 for 2020 list and trying to find the right balance for my themes and goals. I want my list to be ambitious but achievable, thoughtful but actionable, fun but meaningful. Not a tall order at all! Keep it simple, like I always say 😄
As I was brainstorming ideas and feeling stuck, I saw that Melia had posted “A 2020 (Or Always) Mood” to our Instagram. A lot of it hit home for me, especially "Less comparison, more appreciation” and "Less staying small, more showing up." These are intentions I want to carry into the new year – on the podcast and in my daily life.
I’m still figuring out what all 20 of my goals will be, but I feel encouraged by Lisa Olivera’s wise words: “Cheers to remembering we don't have to wait for a new year, a new decade, or a new anything to choose how we show up for ourselves and others.”
What’s your 2020 mood?
