April 2020 Goals

Monthly goal setting used to be one of my favorite things.  I loved reflecting on the past month and setting new goals for the month ahead.  I got away from goal setting because I always felt robbed of time.  I would start the month with exciting goals and plans, but could never seem to find the time to achieve what I wanted.  Or I would forget about my goals and plans by the middle of the months because I’d lose focus.

Now, more than ever, I have the time.  I also need to channel my energy into goals that bring me joy, give me purpose, and encourage the hard work I’m putting in.  Am I looking to take on new projects and tasks this month? NO WAY!  Am I looking to take care of myself, at a baseline level? You bet!

We are under a “Stay-at-Home” order in Maryland for the indefinite future. The way it’s looking, we’ll be home all of April, so I’m creating this goal/things to do list through that lens.
