January Goals Update

Oh January.  1/12 of the new year has already passed, but I feel like I’m already making significant progress on changing my life, and I couldn’t be happier! Here’s how the month shaped up:

  1. Read 6 books
    Check!  I’m rather pleased with this result after last month’s failures.
    A Crimson Warning on 12/31
    Stumbling on Happiness on 1/2
    Murder in the Marais on 1/5
    Murder in Belleville on 1/15
    Pictures at an Exhibition on 1/18
    Heat Rises on 1/22
    America’s Hidden History on 1/28
  2. Pay off one of my credit cards
    Check!!!!  Soooo happy I was able to knock out my Bank of America card, first on my financial priorities list, when I sent the last payment on 1/24. 🙂
  3. Throw out 20 things
    Check! I got rid of 20 different things as of 1/31
  4. Keep a gratitude journal for the month (to get started on my 2012 goals)
    Check! Somehow I managed to write down my gratitude every day for 30 days.  Change is coming 🙂
  5. Put money into my Roth IRA
    Check! $200 in the retirement account this month. Not a lot but certainly better than nothing. Now that I don’t have a 401(k) that gets put in automatically, I think I’ll need to step this up.
How has your new year started?  Did you make any progress on some major goals for the year?



  1. Hooray! Great job! I am very proud of you! You are a great inspiration to others (including your mom)!
