On January 2nd of this year, 2022, I posted some of my goals for the year as well as an explanation for each one. Although, I know it is only February, I thought it would be a cool idea to give you guys an update on how I’m doing with each of the goals on my list.
Have you guys set any goals for this year? If you have, how are they coming along? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
Without further ado, let’s get started! ✨
Spend more time with God. To be honest, I think I have been doing pretty well with this one. Me and Goodmommy will occasionally watch one of our favorite pastors on YouTube, watching both the praise and worship (while joining along) and taking notes on our iPads during the teaching. We love to listen to Gospel music together, so I really love how we make worshipping God a family endeavor.
Finish writing the first draft for my novel. I have been working on my book, from time to time. I have been contemplating some new ideas for how I can finish my current chapter (chapter 21.) This goal is definitely going at a slow but steady pace, so far, but I’m glad that this year, I am working on ways to improve my novel more. 20,000 words is very doable considering the time that I have left in the year. I’m excited to look back at my progress in December!
Eat a salad 2-4 times every week. Now this one, we haven’t been doing much, at all. Although we do eat well-portioned food and we make sure we get our vegetables, and protein, we haven’t been eating much salad lately. We have ate some this year, though (the salad that we make is just the spinach with some cut up pieces of chicken and dressing, which I find delicious.)
Step out of box and practice new art techniques. Since I’m taking an art class, this goal is definitely progressing. At the end of January, I painted a rock to get more in-tune with making creations with nature. Right now, we’re studying different types of paper art. Art comes in many different forms, so I really enjoy learning new techniques and using that in the occasional art project, both for school and for fun.
Reach (at least) 200 followers on this blog. Considering that when I listed these goals, I had 51 followers, and I have 68 followers as of now (thank you so much! ) I would say that we’re making pretty good progress in this department. It warms my heart to be able to see more feedback from you all and be able to spread God’s Word whilst doing something that I love: writing!
Continue to stay active in my clubs and extracurricular activities. Yes, I am happy to say that I definitely have! I’ve been reading to participate in book club, learning new sign language, and attending club meetings. All of my club selections for this school year have each been a fantastic experience! In fact, I might take some of the same ones next year.
Read (at least) 12 novels. I’m really happy that I said “read” and not “finish” for this one LOL. I have finished one book, so far: The Miscalculations of Lightning Girl. Technically, I have read 2 novels, one of which I haven’t finished, yet. Reading is definitely a hobby of mine that I always enjoy, and I’m about to start another book, so look out for book review #4 in the near future!
This post was not just to write something, but it also serves as a little bit of a self-check. It is holding myself accountable when I review my ambitions as well as how I am doing on all of them. If you’d like to read the post where I announced my goals for 2022, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for reading! Peace in! ✨
