Achieving Balance in 2014
In January I shared my word for the year: balance. I've continued working towards this through the month of February. I've been working this year on establishing new habits one at a time, instead of starting several at once. So far it's going well!
In January, I worked on utilizing short amounts of time better and I continued doing that this month as well.
In February, my new habit was planning our dinners for the week every Sunday. I was surprised how much this made that after school/before dinner rush simpler and less stressful. I was also more intentional about using up ingredients in our fridge and cupboards, and making sure we ate more fruits and vegetables. It only took me a few minutes every Sunday and those minutes had a big impact!
As a family, we're continuing to work on being more grateful, my son is working on being more generous, and my daughter is working on being more peaceful. These were words we picked for the year and when we set goals each month at our family meeting, we're thinking of ways we can achieve them.
If you've never set family goals, this month is a brand new opportunity to set some! Have a family meeting and discuss what you'd like to accomplish this month and write down your ideas on this printable. It's a great way to help you live more intentionally!
A Quick Look Back at February
February was another great month for the 365 Items in 365 Days Declutter Challenge. New people continue to join our Facebook group every day and it's great to see so many people decluttering their homes and lives!
I also continued organizing my kitchen and sharing kitchen organizing tips with you. I still have a few more spots to organize so this series will continue in March.
If you've missed any posts last month, you can read all the February posts here.
Last month, I set 3 goals for the blog. And I'm happy once again to say I achieved all 3 of them!
- I continued to organize my kitchen and shared tips to help you organize yours (I had planned to write more posts again this month than I actually did but I was quite busy helping both a colleague and my parents, who are both decluttering and packing as they prepare to sell their homes and move - I will definitely wrap up this series in March)
- I shared decluttering tips and updated my progress in the 365 Items in 365 Days Challenge
- I wrote 2 Organizing Ideas for the Weekend posts
What's Coming Up In March On The Blog?
I'll be showing you the last parts of my kitchen in March and I'll also continue sharing decluttering tips to help you continue in the 365 Items in 365 Days challenge.
Here are my goals for February:
- Continue organizing my kitchen and sharing tips to help you organize yours
- Continue sharing decluttering tips and update my progress in the 365 Items in 365 Days challenge
- Write at least 2 Organizing Ideas for the Weekend posts
So, what are your family, personal, or blog goals for March? How are your 2014 goals coming along? Are you as ready for spring as I am?
