My Goals for March


(1) Creating community here at this blog: I'm bringing this goal back from last month & again, the two things I want to focus on this month are traffic and comments.

a) Toward that end, for traffic, I want to write one article, create one Squidoo lens and post one new video on YouTube this month.
b) For comments, I want to meet more bloggers and hang out with them a bit. Do you have a blog I could visit?

(2) Healthy changes: This is sort of a continuation of last month's goal about slowing down, drinking more tea, getting more sleep and eating more protein. If I can accomplish those things, then I'll have more energy and maybe next month's goal can be getting more exercise. :)

(3) Avoiding last year's Easter disaster: I don't know if any of you were around at my other blog last year but my choice for an Easter ensemble was a BIG mistake! This month, I need to determine if it was just the color or other factors that made it so. That quest is going to be the focus of my Monday posts, but I will report on my progress here.

What are your goals this month?

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

  1. "Avoiding last year's Easter disaster"...I was not reading your blog last year, but i am sure it wasn't as bad as all that! I look forward to reading more about it.

    I like the way you list small, workable ways to be healthier. I am also trying to eat more protein. It was one of my resolutions in January and I stuck with it for a while. I don't know why I sort of forgot, but it really helps with energy and a generally better diet.

    1. Hi Ann! Honey, it was every bit as bad as it sounds. If you check in on Monday, you can see a picture that will prove I'm right. :)

      Thanks! Well, I figure if I don't take on too many changes at once, there's a better chance that I'll actually accomplish them, without feeling so overwhelmed. And you're right, it really does help w/ energy.

  2. Hi, Jeanine! You've got some good goals this month. Healthy changes are so important and the benefits bleed over into the other goals in your life as well. Have a fabulous month!

    1. Hi Ralene! Thanks!! I agree, they really are important, but they are the changes I have the hardest time with and they tend not to stick. Hope you have a great month, too.

  3. Avoiding the Easter disaster...I have been there and done that. But this month, I am determined to sew a dress to wear for this occasion.

    Excellent goals Jeanine!

    1. Hi Maria! It's comforting to know you've been there, too!! Sewing a dress is awesome.

      That actually would probably help because it could be made to be perfect for me. And I know a local seamstress! But so far, I'm planning to buy one I saw online at J. Jill.

  4. You've piqued my interest as to what your Easter disaster looked like last year. Your response to Ann (above) made me laugh. I think I could join the "outfit disaster" club.

    In my mind I know how I would love to dress...affording new clothes...well, that's a different story. Some day that time will come. I'll just need to be patient until it arrives.

    1. LOL, I feel that way toward the middle of every month while waiting on the next one. I have a shopping budget, but it's oh so hard to stick to it. I confess I am not nearly patient enough!

      Well, you'll see it in all its glory if you check back Monday. I'm only going to post it that once, though I'll be talking about the Easter dress quest all month long. It really stuns me sometimes when I see it that I managed to do that to myself.

  5. You can do this!! I kind of remember the Easter disaster - but I don't remember thinking it was that big?!

    1. LOL, Aurie, that's right, you were there!! Oh it was dreadful (though I can occasionally be overly dramatic about failure). Thanks so much for your encouragement!
