the listing of 2015 “intentions” has officially begun…

I’ve been thinking a lot about my goals “intentions” for next year and I think I’ve devised a fool-proof plan on how to tackle a number of worthwhile things by splitting them into individual projects to complete over the course of one month.

This, in turn, means I need to choose twelve “projects.” I thought this would be super easy, but it turns out I’m having a hard time nailing down what to do with my calendar year…

So. That’s where you come in, Reader. I need your help! 

Below is a list of the five (that’s right, only five… not even half) of the things I want to accomplish next year, month by month. I need help filling in the holes. Got an idea? Leave a comment. Please! I need all the help I can get, apparently.

Two of the ideas came from my Life List and the other three were gleaned from my mostly fruitless internet searches for “monthly goals” or something similar… So, please read and respond, Reader. Read and respond!!!

January: Complete a full month of the “Insanity” workout program.

February: Read a book a week over the perfect four-week month.

March: Help me, Reader!

April: Run 100 miles.

May: Help me, Reader!

June: Help me, Reader!

July: Help me, Reader!

August: Start the family tree project from the Life List for a Christmas gift for the grandparents. (#6 on the Life List)

September: Help me, Reader!

October: Help me, Reader!

November: Participate in NaNoWriMo. (#97 on the Life List)

December: Help me, Reader!


Okay, Reader. That’s all I’ve got, sadly… So, any suggestions are appreciated!

    Hi Krissi- how about once a week (of some month) sending someone that has had an impact on your life a personal letter to let them know what they mean to you? I am doing the gratitude thing and writing down 3 things every day that I am grateful for-I have found it very interesting to see what comes to mind. Are you up for a month of healthy eating? Keeping your home clean and picked up for a month? How about a month of random acts of kindness to strangers? My favorite is to complement an older person on their clothes, pretty hair, etc…works great in a grocery store! I am enjoying your daily blogs honey. Love you

      Aunt Cherri, these are such great suggestions! Sending letters is such a great idea and so easy to do. I also really love your idea of eating healthy – I might take it a step further and do a month of no eating out… All home-prepared meals! Thank you for the suggestions. :) Love you too!!

    This is a neat idea. Definitely more likely to get completed than a random list of resolutions at least! I think I’ll make my own 12 project list to work on :) Here are some things off the top of my head that I might put on my list if you want ideas:
    Learn how to make one particular cuisine (like chinese or french)
    Learn a language
    Reorganise all the closets and drawers and throw out all the junk I’m sure I have
    Teach myself how to use photoshop or another picture editing software

      These are great suggestions, Sally! Thanks!! I’ve got “learn a language” on my “big list,” too, and was taking Korean classes for a while. These days, though, there are no other students who want to continue at my level, so the class has been cancelled, sadly. Perhaps I should just shell out the cash and hire a tutor!

      And honestly, the organization idea is probably my favorite of yours – I’ll be moving in a few months and I know I have a ton of junk, too!

      Thanks for the comment and for stopping by! :)
