Holy cow…it’s February. Wow.
A lot is going on this month. First of all, it was my sister’s 21st birthday yesterday! Woo! Unfortunately, she’s in Florida still, which is weird because I never imagined in a million years that I would be missing out on her 21st birthday like this. I’m totally bummed but that’s okay because it just motivates me more to get my crap together so that I can visit her during her internship!
Also, today is Groundhog Day and I have a confession…I’m pulling for Phil to see his shadow because I’m just not over snow yet. I know, I know, unpopular opinion and whatnot but I just want a little bit more, maybe not the whole six weeks. We’ll see though.
Oh, this Thursday is my best friend Danielle’s 23rd birthday so, now that I think about it, there’s a lot going on this week let alone this month. I’m already feeling a little tired just thinking of it all so why not add to it with all the stuff I’m hoping to accomplish in between all that jazz.
More content upgrades || This is my top goal for the month! I’ve been blogging for almost 4 years (insert big eyed surprised face emoji here please, because that is insane) and I have a huge amount of content I want to revisit and upgrade in new and exciting ways. So let’s hope that happens because it’ll be great for all of us!
Fix links on old posts || This one was sort of brought on by the whole “holy cow, I’ve been blogging for almost 4 years” thing because during those early years I was actually on two different platforms so I’ve got some serious broken links going on in early content. That’s never good.
Fix broken link on blog Pinterest board || Same goes for content over on Pinterest. What’s the point in having pins on a blog board when they don’t actually bring readers to your blog?
Grow Instagram following by at least 50 || I had such a big jump in followers last month so I would love to see that sort of growth continue but I’m keeping my expectations grounded.
Incorporate Radical Self Love into my blog more || Self-love is such a huge passion of mine and I would love to be able to incorporate that passion into my blog more. Plus, what better time to do so than the month that holds Valentine’s Day, right?
Journal more || Plain & simple here, I just want to continue my 2016 goal to write more by journaling more personally.
29 day squat challenge || Taking full advantage of February’s shortness here (thanks a lot, Leap Day) and committing to a squat challenge for the first time since the summer. Proud to say Day One is donzo!
Follow 60 Things to Throw Out in the Next 60 Days || This will make much more sense very, very soon so if you’re feeling ready for a refresh but don’t want to dive into the treacherous world of spring cleaning too soon check back here this time next week to find out what I’m talking about.
Finish reading Leave Your Mark by Aliza Licht || I freaking love this book and I’ve been gushing about it for so long, so why have I not finished it? Well, there’s about a million excuses, however, the but stops here! I’m determined to finish it this month because it’s holding me back from other great reads and that’s just not fair.
Start up the Inspiration Folder again || When I was in middle school I had this killer inspiration wall. It was covered in everything from CD pullouts (I vividly remember Jesse McCartney’s Beautiful Soul having a very prominent spot), magazine cutouts, pink & purple polaroid strips of me & my friends, there was even random lists & post-it notes. I loved that wall. Then sometime in high school I decided to be more serious so I took it all down and started an Inspiration Folder instead. So while I’m not willing to commit to the whole wall deal again, I really want to get back into collecting things that inspire me like that so I’m hoping set aside a little time every Sunday in February to add things to the folder.
What are your goals for the month? I love seeing what everyone hopes to accomplish in a month, it’s inspirational and motivating so share in the comments or tweet me!
Also, I’ll be linking up to Stay Gold Autumn’s #MonthlyGold linkup as well as Breakfast at Lilly’s & Southern Soul’s #TheRoadToABetterMe linkup (the 1st Wed. of every month) so be sure to check out those posts too.
