Ladies, we’re in December.
Goodness, this year has flown!
With 2015 right around the corner, we’re all thinking about goals.
Homemaker’s Goals for the New Year:
Starting in 2015, I’m revamping a lot of things in my life, including some of my day-to-day homemaking tasks. From making the bed first thing in the morning, to turning on the dishwasher before heading to bed. Everything is going to get looked at and re-evaluated.
In true nature to me, I made a printable! 🙂 And, I’m sharing that with you all today! I’ve transitioned out of mostly planning digitally and I’m back to pen and paper. There’s something about having what I right in hand that helps me need get more done. Tucked away on a computer just opens up the possibility (and probability) that I’ll forget about it!
Take some time to think this over. Don’t just jot things down as you do them now. As with any goal, first think of where you WANT to be, and HOW you want to feel on the “other side”. Then break that down into baby steps that will get you there.
For me, it’s wanting to lay my head on that pillow every night knowing I maximized my time at home and with my family. Homemaking is so much more than cleaning, it’s making the structure you live in a home for your family. Making it feel like home when they walk through that front door.
Consider those things when you’re setting your homemaking goals for 2015.
How to use the printables
On the first sheet you will jot down your where-you-want-to-be thoughts for each category. The second page is where you’ll outline your how. The title section is left blank so you can print that page our as many times as needed for each category. Then write out which category you’re working through on the top of the page.
Take your time with this. Maybe, tackle one category a day. This way you can chew on some ideas and really analyze what your ultimate goal is.
Here’s an example
Say you want your home to feel warm and cozy. That’s the overall feel you want in your home. (Maybe you want it to feel bright and cheery, or exciting and adventurous). Jot this down on the first sheet. Then print out the second sheet and title it : Warm and Cozy Home (or whatever you put in that section).
Then list the things you would need to do aesthetically to accomplish that goal. Include things like candles, pillows, decorations (maybe seasonal), etc.
It’s important to get super detailed with your goals. You should do this with any goal! When we generalize too much, we leave too much room for doubt and confusion. When we have a detailed plan we’re more likely to accomplish our ultimate goal and reach our desired result!
