As we have entered 2022 and say goodbye to 2021, I have been thinking a lot about my 2022 Goals and Motivations. Each year, I like to set a few larger goals that I can break up into smaller steps for each month.
What i have chosen for my goals and motivations
Gardening is a big change for us this year. I have decided to redo the kitchen gardens this next year and I want to make the space not only functional, but also beautiful and peaceful. I have decided to add raised beds with wood trellises. If you look back to ….. I explain how we ruined our soil in the kitchen gardens and frankly, I am done trying to fix it!
I am excited for this new change and it will allow me to love the kitchen gardens this year and I will be motivated to spend more time out there.
FINANCIAL: With the uncertainty in the world right now and the constant threats, we are putting as much money as we can into our savings accounts. The other thing is, we will have both credit cards 100% paid off. I hate credit cards and cannot wait to pay them off and be done. 2022 will be our year to pay off all credit cards, build up the savings and pay off half of the truck loan. I recommend following The Budget Mom. She has an amazing way of motivating you to pay off debt and saving for certain sinking funds that are important to you and your family.
I struggle with uncontrolled High Blood Pressure and I am allergic to traditional blood pressure medicine and it is becoming a big concern and I am currently changing my diet and cooking more from scratch and limiting the processed foods. I admit, lately I have been reaching for the easy, boxed meals for dinner. My work outside of the farm, has been extremely busy. Now that the busy season is over, I am concentration on simple, healthy, homemade meals.
I found out that I am also Gluten sensitive and my doctor has recommended that I get rid of Gluten.
Besides food, I am starting a new exercise plan a few days a week. I have weight to lose and by having the farm, I need to make sure that I keep up on my strength.
I am a mess when it comes to keeping my house clean. Guys, I am ridiculous! I clean everyday, but as I clean, I make a mess and I don’t put things away unless I am actively thinking about it. I am trying to be more aware and put things in their designated places. As I go through things, I am decluttering and getting rid of a lot of possessions. I am driving myself crazy and I know it has to drive my husband crazy. He is so patient with me! My goal is to be more aware and be better at putting things away.
overview of my 2022 goals and motivations
As you can tell, 2022 is going to be a year of self reflection and working on a better and healthier me. Building up some routines, so I stay on top of all of my goals and reach them by the end of 2022. The plan is to work on them a little bit each day. Slow and steady
What are you working towards in 2022? Are you working on your self reflection or paying off debt?
