March Goals

28th February 2015


I would say that I can’t believe it’s almost March, but after the busy two months I’ve had, it had better be March, you know what I mean? 

I’ve been thinking about the next month and the sort of things, both physical & mental, I want to cultivate in my life. Even with the snow we’ve had over the past few days, I know spring is on its way and I want to be ready.

Goals for March:

  • read at least two books (I’m a book ahead of my overall goal for 2015, so I’d like to keep this up!)
  • see one movie in a cinema (this should be movie #3 I have seen this year, but I have not completed my goals for February or January–oh well!)
  • give a confident, well-prepared, passionate, joyful audition in Philadelphia
    • Those three things are the only controllable variables. I cannot control the state of my voice that morning. I cannot control my external environment (people or places). I can only control myself and my attitude.
  • no email after 7 PM
    • An exception can be made while traveling.
  • send at least 5 postcards/letters
  • be mindful of my spending
  • be intentional with my eating
  • unplug for an hour everyday (no phone, no social media, nothing)
  • get one new aria to presentable level

I was inspired by Lara Casey‘s willingness to unplug from social media and technology for lengthy periods of time but I’m not entirely convinced I can go all in yet… I’m hoping to dip my toe in the proverbial water and then dive in once I know I can do it (yes, I’m totally a chicken).

What are your goals for March?

Make It Happen - Lara Casey

Something that will not surprise you: I like winning stuff. You probably like winning stuff, too. Bonus points when the stuff you win is actually useful stuff and not just another branded koozy that ends up sitting empty, waiting for a Diet Coke, taking up space in your junk drawer. (Though.. if you want to send me koozies, feel free, y’all. I’m not picky and I drink a lot of Diet Coke.)  Continue reading
