December Mantras, Goals & Currently 21

A few months ago, our chill blogging group that goes by the name of Peaceful Posse launched a monthly link up called Mantras, Goals & Currently.  It’s pretty self-explanatory – share any mantras, goals and/or currently’s for the month.

For those that missed the details explained earlier this year, the link-up opens up the first Monday of each month and will remain open for 14 days. So for this month, it opens up today (Monday, December 14) and it will close at midnight on Monday, December 18th. The link up for January opens up on Monday, January 1st – New Years Day.

Mantras, Goals & Currently

It is totally up to you on how you want to layout or structure your posts. Do whatever works for you, how about that? 🙂

So here goes my update on my November Goals and then we’ll get crackin’ on December’s mantras, goals and currently.

Let’s take a look at what my Goals for the month of November were and their results:

  1. Meal plan more and look at more of what we have so we can eliminate possible waste. Let’s just go ahead and leave this one permanently on my goals, mmmkay?
  2. Read more.  I have definitely upped my reading game in the last month.
  3. Get organized and get started with my 2018 bullet journal.  I’ve cracked open my Leuchtturm journal and have made some good progress.  Must finish the collections and the weekly’s for January and February, then I’ll show you guys what I’ve done.  A few people have expressed interest, so stay tuned for that if you’re into bullet journaling or love planners.
  4. Get outdoors more. I tend to want to hibernate when the colder weather comes, so sometimes I have to force myself out a bit more.  Fail.  I tend to recoil in the colder months, but having said that, we’ve had some really mild days this month but I think winter will definitely rear its ugly head for good next month.

December Goals:

  • Look at the weeks of December and determine where we are (housesitting at my mom’s while she goes to Barbados (again!) for a week, holiday plans, etc.) so I can plan accordingly for our meals.
  • Try to be and stay as centered and calm as I can. Less stress is the goal for this upcoming holiday season.
  • Try to be as positive as possible. No matter what. Rise above.
  • Continue the reading kick and find a new author to delve into.
  • Get organized and get started with my 2018 bullet journal.
  • Get outdoors more. I tend to want to hibernate when the colder weather comes, so sometimes I have to force myself out a bit more.
