My Goals for January 2021

It’s here! It’s here! January’s here! Not only is January the first month of the new year, it’s also my favorite month. There’s nothing I love quite like the start of a new year, especially when it also lines up with my birthday month.

Since it’s the beginning of the month, it’s time to layout my plan for working towards my goals this month. Some of my goals are things I plan to do every month, and some things I’ll need to accomplish one little piece at a time. If you don’t see a goal from my 2021 goals list, it’ll come along later this year. Everything in good time 🙂
