December 2016 Goals

      13 Comments on December 2016 Goals

I seriously can not believe how quickly this year has flown by. It’s been a rough year in a lot of ways, but also a year filled with a ton of growth, so I’m not really complaining but I will admit that I’m looking forward to 2016 coming to a close and 2017 bringing in a new light and hopefully some great things.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, we have a whole other month to look forward to and fill with great things but before we get to my goals for December, let’s take a look back at my November goals…

  • Read 2 books – check!
  • Write 1 handwritten letter – check!
  • Go to yoga 10x – check! Still figuring out what’s reasonable, but excited to have made it as much as I did!
  • Move apartments – check! At some point I’ll give you a “tour” ha!
  • Write 3 freelance articles – check…kind of! Only 2 have been published and the 3rd was sent back for some pretty hefty revisions as we decided to take it a new direction, but I’m still counting it.
  • Complete my January content calendar – nope. I’ve been thinking a lot about it but there’s some potentially new things on the horizon that have impacted this.
  • Pitch at least 1 brand for a sponsored post idea – Sadly, no, but I did get a few sponsored posts from brands reaching out to me, so no complaints!
  • Grow Instagram account – check. I saw some great growth at the start of the month and then a huge drop, which I’m thinking was likely an IG spam clean, but it’s been growing again the last week, just slowly. Overall about a 2% increase, but I saw growth on ALL platforms last month so no complaints.
  • Work on developing a new (and healthier) evening routine – kind of…this is still a work in progress; the move definitely threw me off but I’m working on it.
  • Complete all holiday shopping – not quite, but I did start it, which I think counts for a lot and I have some ideas for a few gifts.

Now, as for those December goals:


  1. Read 2 books
  2. Attend 8 yoga classes
  3. Write 4 Freelance Articles
  4. Finish Holiday Shopping
  5. January Content Calendar
  6. Write 1 Handwritten Letter

It remains to be seen just how busy work is going to be and how many extra hours I may be working so I don’t want to make sure my goals for the month are attainable and within my reach, while still giving me something to work towards.

    Love your goals! And like Charlotte I love the handwritten letter! I love snail mail, receiving but also sending some and I try to write something at least once a week.
    I haven’t set myself goals for this month . I just want to make it to Christmas and then just enjoy quality time with my loved ones. I so need a break!
    Hugs xxx

    I love that you have “write a handwritten letter” in your blog goals list <3 I don't do this one nearly enough but it's a lovely gesture when it does happen 🙂 best of luck with what's left of the year and congrats on making it to so many yoga classes 🙂

    I love that you wrote one handwritten letter. There is nothing more special in our heavily social media/text/email world than receiving a handwritten letter.
