February goals

hey friends!  oh goals…does that word make you shutter?  Well, it sometimes does for me.  But I grew up with a entrupurnerial dad, and it seems like we were always setting measurable goals.  In fact, something I really love about my dad is he takes a few days each year to get away + get alone and write his goals for the year, 5 years, and beyond.  I have always admired this about him, and am always interested to see what his goals are.

While on vacation over the holidays, I wrote out a page of “2014 goals + dreams”.  I want to pick a few of those goals each month, and accomplish them.  Some of them, like “write a little every day” aren’t goals that I can “check off” the list each month, and that isn’t the point here.  I simply want to keep myself accountable to be working towards the things I have set out to accomplish in 2014.  I also want to say GRACE, GRACE over this year.  I want to give mroe grace, and recieve more grace.  So don’t be alarmed if in my “march goals” post where I recap my February goals, they aren’t all marked off.  Ok, ok enough about that.  here we go.



1. Make a Artifact Uprising book of my favorite instagram images of 2013 and get it printed

2. Finish my “anybody” series by writing MY anybody story

3. Find a place to write people’s names that I’m praying for each day somewhere in my home that I can see easily

see! measurable.  not too much.  small steps.  I also want to work towards these goals continually throughout the year:

  • make a time each week for disconnect + rest
  • learn to say no + not overcommit
  • read + study the Word as many mornings as possible
  • write a little every single day

[those are not numbered, because they aren’t something I can “cross off” my list if you will.  Those are just things I want to keep in front of me each month to remind me what I need to do to perserve my mental health :)]

what about you?  do you goal set?  I’m linking up with Tiny Twig today!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends

    I too am trying so hard to learn to say no more.

    Great goals this month! I need to get a photo book done for the last 2 years, so I might just have to add that to next month’s goals! I used to use dry erase markers on my mirror for prayer, notes, or verses!
    Also, great idea keeping those ongoing goals separate from the others, and amen to giving ourselves grace!!!

    • Wynne says:

      thanks danielle! ohh yes photo books are ALWAYS on my list, but I figured i can start with 1! YES!! I need to add mine back I think in the shower….the best place or me to pray.

    I love the idea of finding a place to put the names of the people I am praying for. When I worked, I had index cards propped at the bottom of my monitor — this worked well. But now that I am home with my boys, I haven’t quite found the sweet spot. I am thinking maybe inside the cabinets?
