May Update + June 2017 Goals

I was just telling one of my co-workers yesterday that I used to be really good at practicing thankfulness. And now I don’t feel that way so much. Mostly because gratitude has to be really intentional for me (even as a naturally positive person) and I haven’t made time for it. A couple months ago, I started “counting the fruit” before I share my monthly goals and I think it’s helping. It gives me a chance to look back on...

May 2017 Goals

It has been three months since my last goals update. I think that growing a human is a pretty good excuse for not picking up my PowerSheets, so let’s just go with that, shall we? I’ve been feeling a ton better lately, so I’m jumping back on the train this month and starting fresh. There’s nothing special about January 1, remember? I’m not even going to bother talking about my last set of goals since it was so long ago, but I do...

February Goals + January Update

We’re already over a week into February, but I’m setting goals anyway. Five years ago, I would have not bothered and decided to start over next month, but that’s not the case with present-day Leah. I want to keep the ball rolling, no matter how slow it is. Before I get into the recap of January and new goals for February, let’s count the fruit. It snowed. A whole lot. I’m basically forcing myself to put snow on this list. I normally...

Resources I’m Using in the New Year

Last year was the first time I stuck to accomplishing my goals all year long and, man, it felt so good. I was able to start 2017 feeling empowered and inspired which usually isn’t the case for me. I used a few resources throughout the year (that I’m continuing into 2017) that helped me and I want to share them with you in the hopes that they’ll help you as much as they did me. 1. A PLANNER THAT WORKS. For...

January Goals + December Update

If I’m being honest (which I always am with you), I’m feeling completely uninspired. Wintertime in Wisconsin means frigid temperatures and little sunlight throughout the day. It’s barely light out when I leave for work in the morning and the sun is almost down when I get home. I’m constantly in pajamas. I’ve watched more Netflix in the last month than I’d care to admit. My house has been a mess more often than not. But it’s okay. Seasons like this...

Living Well in 2017 | An Introduction

You guys, it’s 2017. I feel like it was years ago that I wrote my introduction to 2016 since so much has happened in the last 366 days. My favorite thing about the year, though, was the fact that I had my word of the year – intentional – on my mind month after month because I had set myself up for success right away and looked at the year in a positive, but realistic light. I’ve touched on this a few times,...
