2018 Goals – My Year of Thrive

2018 Goals - My Year of Thrive

Welcome 2018… it’s time to reflect on 2017 and set some new goals for the coming year.  As I was reflecting on last year, I just felt that I was just getting by in life.  While I did pretty good at accomplishing my running goals, it felt as if some of them were arbitrary.  In 2018, I would like to feel less frazzled and more in control.  For 2018 I’ve moving away from creating specific goals and using a word to guide my actions.

The word I’ve chosen this year is Thrive.  I want to do well, to prosper, to flourish in 2018!

2018 Goals – My Year of Thrive

With my word in mind… I think I can really set my sights on what is important in some the areas of my life:

  1. Running – In years past I’ve made mileage goals… which really just seems so arbitrary.  I think using my word to guide my running will help me to listen to my body, have a great year of running and keep me injury free.
  2. Nutrition – I really want to eat healthy and make smart nutritional choices, as well as give up dairy.  Asking myself “will this food make me thrive” should put things in perspective.
  3. Relationships – I really want to keep in touch better with my long distance friends and make those relationships thrive!
  4. Household – Getting organized so that I’m not always looking for something or late on a deadline.
  5. Work – Ending the procrastination game will definately help me flourish at work!

Do you make New Year Resolutions, or select a focus word for the year?


I’m linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for Friday Five 2.0.

    This year I’m going for PERSPECTIVE. I think it will help with a lot of my goals and is really important to remember.

    There are so many great words and it was hard to pick one. I like reading about everyone else’s word. 🙂

      It was really hard to pick a word… after mulling it around for several days it came to me during a run (like most of my best ideas).
