Goals for 2021 + How to set realistic goals

It’s hard to believe that it’s a new year. 2020 was a rough year for everyone and it certainly flew by fast. Even though 2020 was a tough year, I am still so incredibly thankful for the many ways God blessed us and so thankful for the many ways I grew during those tough seasons. I wanted to share with you all my word for this year and also just a little insight into how you can set realistic goals for yourself.

When I look back on the year 2020, I realized how hard it was to follow through on things. This year, 2021 I am going to do my best to follow through on all areas of my life. So my word is follow through. Whether it’s writing more blog posts on here, answering emails or texts I receive, or even finishing house work I start at home I want to be very intentional in every area of my life. I have all of my goals written down for the year and they all encompass these two words: Follow through.

An easy way to set realistic goals for the year is just to first of all note that they are goals so if they don’t happen, to remind yourself you’re not a failure just because you didn’t accomplish a goal. Second, only giving yourself around three big goals for the whole year that way you don’t get overwhelmed. I reminded myself after writing all of my goals for the year too, that above all of the other goals my spiritual goal is most important to me. If I’m not spending time with God, I can’t possibly accomplish any of the other goals. Lastly, categorize your goals into groups. My husband and I got these 2021 planners that set out goals into categories. For example: Business Goals, Fitness/Physical Goals, Spiritual Goals, Relational Goals, etc. This really helps to be able to process your goals on a much easier level.

Thank you all so much for your continuous support in 2020 and I look forward to another year of building more community on here! Hope you all have a great start to the new year and enjoy setting those goals!

Health Goals

I have some health goals this year just to be healthy overall. I’m going to get back to my consistent healthy eating with only one cheat meal per week on the regular basis and cutting back a lot on my sugar. I realized after this year, I really need to be more controlled about my sugar intake and would love to be more disciplined in this area. I’m also going to get back to working out 4-5 times each week and going to challenge my body a little bit this year, but also take some time to rest it when I can.

Relational Goals

I have several relational goals this year. I want to spend more time getting to know my husband better and going on more adventures together. I also want to focus more on my friendships and building those friendships with others. Investing time and energy into my relationships more this year.

Spiritual Goals

I am making it a goal this year to spend consistent time in God’s word every morning before I start my day. I also want to make a point to use a journal to write the things down that I’m thankful and grateful for. I want to grow in my relationship with Christ this year and be able to share that with others.

Work/Job Goals

My goals this year for my vocal lessons is to learn some new vocal techniques, review some of my vocal pedagogy, and also introduce new songs and warm ups for my students. I also plan on asking my students more about their practice time and asking them to do a practice log for each week. I also want to make some more connections with local schools in the area so I can have more teaching opportunities. I also have a goal with VIPkid to get some more certifications for different levels and be able to teach more kids on a daily basis.

Instagram/Blog Goals

I have goals this year for my blog to write more on here and share more real life stories and authentic content with you all. I want to be more vulnerable and open with you all about the reality of life and share with you all about important events in our life this year. I also have a goal for instagram to be vulnerable and authentic on that platform. I also would love to work with more companies this year, do more giveaways for you all, and also grow in my following as well this year. I also want to meet more bloggers and be able meet more of you all as well on instagram.

I have several goals this year and can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for me! My word this year is going to be persistence. I want to have persistence in everything I do and to follow through in everything. Most of all, I want to focus on others and loving others this year. I hope you all had a wonderful year and a happy new year!

XOXO,

Autumn
