4. List Your Current and Future Dreams & Goals | 52 Lists

Because 2018 will be a year of change, I created the following s l o w goals to encourage me to slow down and enjoy the time I have with my loved ones and to make time for personal growth.

I shared this on Instagram as a part of the #megamotherhood daily photo challenge, except that I'm quite behind and rarely ever post daily, so it has really been a challenge to keep up.  I wrote these on the fly, so when I posted this photo, I asked if I could add take 18 hot baths and go to bed early 18 times a month?

Upon further reflection, I came up with a few dreams and goals:

  • buy a house 
  • sell our property in Montana  
  • support my husband while he gets his bachelors in one year
  • get my health back on track and feel good
  • graduate Dylan and help him strategize his exit plan
  • stick to our budget
  • sell homeschool books
  • work on Project Life
  • knit something 
  • sew something 
  • learn to macrame
  • learn chess tactics

Challenge: Look at this list of dreams and goals often and reflect on them.

  2. Michelle, it's been a couple of years since I read your blog, but I have to say, I love your goals. Some are exactly like mine. I have no property in MT, but I was raised there. Hope all is well with you. I came to copy the link for a friend who is homeschooling and blogs about her tot schooling. I was telling her about you the other day. <3

  3. Kathy, it's been a long time! I'm honored that you would remember me and share. Thank you!
