2019 – First Thoughts

Typically, this would be a goals post, but goals are SO 2018. Right?

Joking aside, I was pretty torn about goals this year. I know a lot of people have forgone them this year, while others have set up broader or process-based goals.ย The truth is that even the first 8 days of January haven’t gone how I expected, so I don’t really feel like I am on steady enough ground to set any kind of goals…


So instead, I am going to talk about the things I want to focus on this year.

Fitness – This started in 2018 and has been a great addition to my regular routine. I am not setting a goal of “x” number of times in the gym each week. Instead, I just want to keep an emphasis on moving and listening to my body.


Blogging – I really LIKE blogging. I really want to get BETTER at blogging, AND AECs are in KY this year, so I even have a chance to see some of you. Blogging shall continue… but I would like to get some new media for you all.


Friendships – 2018 was a weird year for me.ย  It marked 2 years of living in KY, and I have definitely felt the loss of some of my East Coast friends. I want to say yes to more things with my friends here in KY.


Enjoying May – I want to ride and have fun with my horse. I want to try new things and be in the moment. I want to let the bad rides go easier and hold onto the good ones a bit longer. Heavy competing still won’t be in the budget this year, but hopefully, we can find some fun things to do within our budget.


Continue Improving our House – We have some projects that need finishing touches, and a lot of painting still to do. However, it has been a labor of love, and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything.


And… that’s it. It’s short and sweet and without a lot of frills. I know a lot of you have already set your goals this year, so most of you are a whole week ahead of me already! Only 51 more to do. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Those are good though! They may not look like typical goals, but I think they would still qualify ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think sometimes we do get caught up in goals being a “numbers game” when, if you just want to move forward, that’s still a goal, something you’re working towards. It doesn’t have to be a quantifiable number, so I think your focus for the rest of the year still sounds great! I think it’ll be a great year for you!

  2. I feel you; it’s crazy to think the first week of 2019 has already come and gone! This is the first year that I can truly say I feel a bit reinvigorated and excited to see what the year may hold – good or bad, I am sure it will be interesting either way ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I relate to several of your sorta-vague goals! I think I’m finding that the simpler I make it, the more I tend to be happy with. Course, that could change haha. But it sounds like you have a sustainable mindset going forward and I hope that translates to a really awesome year ๐Ÿ™‚
