January Goals

Hello 2015!

Since starting these monthly posts, I've found that these goals actually get thought of, instead of going by the wayside like most resolutions.  Sure, they don't always get accomplished, but that's where grace comes in.  As Lara Casey says, "done is better than perfect".

December Goals: 

1. Research advertising avenues for Sam Grable Photo and decide on what we're going to do starting in January 2015. --- I found some reviews for what worked for other photographers, but we are still deciding which ones we're going to try this year.

2. Hide my phone from 4-7pm. --- this one was HARD! I am going to continue to work on this...

3. Post on Grable Tales at least 2x/week. --- thanks to our precious Charlotte, I was able to complete this goal. I hope I can continue this in the coming months...

4. Find a (free/inexpensive) holiday outing/tradition to do as a family each week - go look at Christmas lights, visit a live nativity, find snow!, etc.
--- we talked about doing a number of things throughout the month, but life got busy.

For the new year, I'm going to start simple & small.  I'm a little burnt out from the holidays and some changes will be happening at home, so I am giving myself a lot of grace up front to get back into the swing of things.

January Goals:

1. Hide my phone from 4-7pm. Literally hide it!

2. Post on Grable Tales at least 2x/week.

3. Go on a hike as a family.

  1. Disconnecting from your phone can be such a challenge! Also, I love your idea to hike. The weather in Texas has been gorgeous the past couple of days, and I just told my husband yesterday that it would be perfect hiking weather.

  2. Fabulous January goals! I want to steal all 3. Especially the phone one. Might make my husband do it too....
