so there's a new idea i've been mulling. a new monthly link-up with steph at life according to steph. both her and i love making monthly goals and life goals in general. we're pretty much constantly posting these on our blogs (i have my 101 list, she has her seasonal goals, among other things.) and we especially love reading about it when other people do the same.
the link-up would be a 'choose your own challenge' goal setting link-up. beginning in september, we'd give a general topic, like 'food,' 'relationships,' 'finances,' etc. it would be up to you to pick one thing within that category to work on for the month. (or more than one, we like ambition.) under 'food' you might try meal planning, making a new dish from pinterest, eating out less, or packing your lunch each day. under 'relationships' you might try writing love notes to your husband, sending your mom surprise flowers, or walking the dog more without checking your phone the whole time. we'd both offer ideas of things to try and let you know what it is specifically that each of us is planning to work on on at the beginning of each month.
then, at the start of the following month, once you've had the full 30 days to work on your challenge, we'd want to hear all about what you challenged yourself to do. what you tried, how you did, what advice you'd give others, and what resources you used. did you find a great printable to help with meal planning? did a new phone app help with sorting out your finances?
i thought about starting this in january with the new year, but september also brings about renewed focus and a fresh start. so... are you in?
