2016 Plans and Goals

Happy New Year Friends! 2015 was an AMAZING year, and I cannot wait to see what 2016 will bring!
I am teaming up with my inspiring friends Ashley and Angie for their #2getherwearebetter series to talk about goals and plans for the new year.

My biggest goal this year is to ORGANIZE this life of mine! I vaguely remember a time in my life when being organized was a STRENGTH of mine...in my personal life and at work. Whenever someone needed something- they knew they could come to me to find it. But that was pre-babies, pre-40, pre-TPT amazingness, and so on and so forth! NOW...organized?!  Not so much! But that is all going to change in 2016!

 I ordered my very first Erin Condren planner...cue oohs and ahhs! So, I am already one step in the right direction! (The above graphic shows the cover I chose after MUCH deliberation. The picture is of the adorable Ashley Schroeder and I in Vegas on the first night of the TPT Conference, waiting PATIENTLY for our names to be called to WIN Erin Condren planners... #wompwomp #wewerentsolucky #betterlucknexttime

I also want to work on setting REALISTIC GOALS, and then sticking to them! No more recopying lists from one page to another in my notebooks until I just give up because my hand gets tired!

It will also help in my success story of 2016 if I BELIEVE IN MYSELF...ALL DAY EVERYDAY! Part of the reason for the recopying of the lists is that I look at the exciting opportunities ahead of me and I think...IMPOSSIBLE! I am going to stop doing that and start believing in what I tell my students every day...YOU ARE SMART, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE BRAVE, YOU CAN DO THIS THING!

I plan to continue to CHOOSE JOY! I like that so many friends that I met in Vegas told me "your blog name matches you perfectly!" That is a characteristic I want to be remembered for...SPREADING JOY...ONE GIGGLE AT A TIME!

Check out all these other amazing bloggers to see what their plans and goals are for 2016, because
