Make it Happen Monday {goals}

Recently read several posts about living intentionally and setting goals.  Without going into everything that lead up to this.  I have decided life is going to be more intentional.

I determined where my priorities are.  I picked:  Wife, Homemaker, Mommy, Personal, Faith, Blogger, Writer, Friend, Family, House and Finances.

Since I have always had a hard time setting goals, keeping them, and accomplishing them I thought adjusting every 6 months would be a great place to start.  I set up some bigger goals and then made some smaller goals to reach these bigger goals by the end of the year.

I have also decided that I need some sort of accountability so I am going to blog my weekly goals on Mondays and share the previous week's progress.  I am also going to extend myself grace when I miss the mark.  I am an overachiever and have perfectionist tendencies.  This means I sometimes set unrealistic goals.  I also need to remember I am a mom of 2 under 3.  Life is going to happen.

I figured who else to help keep me accountable than you.  My lovely bloggy friends.

Here we go!
