My 2020 Goals & Resolutions

Hey all! 😎

I wanted to share my goals and resolutions for next year. Here’s the thing, I usually don’t set life resolutions– I just let them drop, but this time around I think I’ll be trying to also write them down and place them somewhere I’ll notice them often. My life needs a positive change this year. And as for reading goals/challenges… well, I dropped them in 2019. I think I made a few too specific, put too much stress on doing too much, and I’m also blaming my lifestyle for losing my motivation to work on the goals — I’ll do a wrap up of my 2019 challenges in another post.

My 2019 Challenges

Hey all 🙂

I wanted to share my challenges/goals for next year with you all! I’ve been truly debating what kinds of challenges I would set up for myself this year, since reading for challenges can sometimes not work out for me. I tend to rebel against obligation reading these days. Any time I feel like I have to read something, I start putting it off. This is a mindset I need to work on for sure, but I haven’t been sure if having challenges would make it worse…
And yet, I feel like having goals and challenges give my reading some direction when I need it. 

In conclusion: These are totally my reading challenges, BUT I’m not going to stress about them. They are there to guide my reading and help me, but if I don’t finish I’m not going to feel horrible. I’m also not going to force myself to finish a book just to complete a challenge/prompt. Continue reading “My 2019 Challenges”

My 2018 Challenges

Hey all 🙂

I wanted to share my challenges/goals for next year with you all! This year I’ll be mainly be taking part in three different challenges. I love doing challenges with groups, but sometimes the challenges become too much like work for me and I stop wanting to read, so I do have to be careful. Therefore while I mainly think of these as challenges, I also consider them to be ‘goals’ because it seems less stressful somehow.  Continue reading “My 2018 Challenges”
