Goals for 2018

2018 Goals

I’m a goal-oriented person. I guess you could say I’m a goal digger of sorts. Now that “goal setting season” is in full effect, it makes me so excited to extend on from my previous goals and continue growing. When goal setting I think it’s really important to be realistic. It’s really natural to think, “I want to finish 6 marathons this year!” No, Jordan, you know that’s not happening, chill. I’ve been thinking about these goals for quite some time now and I think they are certainly achievable. Now, will I have to work my bum off? Most definitely!

This year I’m using the Cultivate What Matters Planner to really hone in on my goals and well… Cultivate what matters to me! My brother got me this gift for Christmas and so far I think it’s amazing. It has really forced me to decide what I want to focus my energy towards and how I’m going to go about doing that.


Continue growing as a daughter of Christ. That’s vague, I know. But any growth as a daughter of Christ is important to me. Whether that’s giving more time to others, one less cuss word, or praying more and more every day. Growth is growth.

Read the word every day.

Pray more.


Have a date night with Stephen every week. The family I used to nanny for had date nights every single Friday no matter what. It didn’t have to be anything fancy (although sometimes it was super fancy), but it was always just out of the house and away from the kids for a little while. Maybe you read that and you’re like how can you say that when you’re not even a mom yet? But I really learned the importance of those date nights for the marriage. I’ll definitely talk more about this someday but I’ll just say this – wife first THEN mother. Even though we don’t have little ones yet, I always want our marriage to remain the priority so we’ve had date nights since we got married and will continue to do so. By the way, most of the time we don’t even leave the house for “date night” but we are intentional with that time. The phones are away and we are just spending quality time with each other.


Pay off the new car within the one-year anniversary from purchase date. I haven’t talked much about finances on here but I have become so passionate about it in the last few months. I have so much I want to share with you all in 2018 and I’m really excited about it. What I will say is this – GET OUT OF DEBT. Be abnormal.

Tithe every month.


Complete and stick to Every Dollar budget every month.


Run at least two more marathons.

Workout a minimum of 4 times a week for the entire year (ideally before work in the morning). Just be consistent and do what makes me happy.

Provide helpful, inspiring posts that not only simplify reader’s lives but also make lives more joyful. Post at least every Tuesday and Thursday (once we move… Remember… I’m being realistic here people).

Post on Instagram more consistently (ideally once a day).

Complete my #WeddingWednesday series.

Professional – work work (most of you probably forget about my full time job!)

Keep on striving. That’s all I’ll say about that.


Finish one book a month

Have you set goals for the New Year? If so, what are some of them? I get so inspired hearing other people’s goals and believe most of you probably do too so feel free to share below or in my latest Instagram post!
