Focusing on Small Steps

One Word 2013: A Year of Focus
Courtesy of Melanie @ Only A Breath


This week I have to admit was one of those weeks that seriously tested my focus and dedication to making a true change. I shouldn’t be surprised, really. That’s typically what seems to happen when you make a conscious decision to walk a different path.

What I learned this week is that I need to have my goals front and center in my mind and environment. I used to be an avid planner user and at some point got too attached to my smartphone’s calendar. I’m making a point to change that. There’s something to say for taking the time to write down what needs to be done – appointments, goals, tasks, etc.

I’m, also, taking the time to begin my 2013 goals journal. I will have my specific goals for the year written and use it as a place to jot down notes, ideas, and successes along the way. While I blog on a semi-regularly basis, I have gotten away from writing just because. Sharing my goals, fears, and accomplishments in a private space for me to fully release.

  Have a fantastic weekend, Divas 🙂

I was using my phone, too, but as you said it seemed like I was so attached to it and there's just something refreshing and invigorating about writing a list and crossing items off of it. Looking forward to great things in 2013!

Creating an Inspiration Board is definitely something that I'd like to do! What a great idea! Going to check out your 2013 Altered Planner in more detail. I recall seeing the post and have it bookmarked in my reader. Thanks for all the motivation and inspiration!

I am soooo attached to my cell phone calendars, and reminders. I love using a regular to-do list, but I just seem to always have my phone in my hand. I should try on changing this. I also love the small steps that you are taking. I'll be with you on your journey.

My goals are to find ways to not be stressed, during this time when my mom is sick. I have to make a conscious effort.
