#GOALS: 2018 Book & Life Resolutions and Thoughts.

I have some thoughts, goals and things I want to focus on for 2018, both bookish and life-ish. Some may call them "resolutions"...

If you're resolving to Do A Thing this year, let me know in the comments!


  1. Those are really good resolutions- you cover the spiritual, mental, and physical there with those and they are challenging, but well within the realm of doable.

    I don't kill houseplants, but I also have a very moist house so watering is minimal and on a weekly schedule for me. I have a Christmas cactus and a shamrock that are nearly twenty-five years old, survived three moves, and one obnoxious cat who either dug in the pots or knocked them over. The shamrock is nice because it droops when its ready for water and gets paler when its had too much and it likes indirect sun and is fine in a cooler room so its a good one for giving you some physical signs of how it likes things.

    I've got the reading what's on my shelves/limit purchases, drink at least 48 oz water a day, walk three times a week, and send cards for occasions or just friendly check ins with a list of folks, too. I've also added try a new to me recipe once a month to help perk up my interest in cooking.

    Good luck on your goals, Misty!

  2. Yay for more Misty blogs/vlogs! I think going with your gut/wants more is a great idea. And reading more of what you want sounds empowering. And yay for more penpalness. :D
    With houseplants, maybe some succulents, like a Sedum spathulifolium Cape Blanco or Sedum spurium 'Voodoo'? Or anything drought-tolerant? (like a Dragon Tree or Heartleaf Philodendron). Mother-in-Law's Tongue sounds like a good one for you. Also Zamioculcas Zamiifolia BUT that one is poisonous (so if the cats are plant-eaters, don't get that one). I'd say Zebrina pendula, but it's a fast grower, which carries its own high maintenance, and that might not be ideal. If your house is that dry, it might be spider mites killing the plants as much as neglect.

    I love the BuJo for the habit tracking, which (for me) reminds me constantly about these things I want to make into a habit, which feels like an excellent way for things to become a habit. I hope it helps for you, too!

    I'm also impressed by how many resolutions you're talking about. Are you focusing on all of them at the same time?

    My primary resolution this year is my health- I've been proactive about trying to heal myself for years, but it's time to step it up to the next level (before I end up way too broken). I'm also dedicated to be more involved/educated/aware of the political things happening, especially in the Senate (where laws happen). I feel like we're definitely constantly barraged by negativity and a lot of the "Trump did/said this", which feels like a distraction from the *actual* bills our elected leaders are imposing on us. But mostly, I'm all about keeping the stress as low as possible this year- which, thankfully, reading is great for. :)


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
