Our family starts every new year making a list of things we want to do differently. On the 1st of every year, we tell each other what those goals are and try to hold each other accountable. This year, I thought it would be fun to write them down and share them with our readers and then look back at the end of 2019 to see how many of our goals were achieved, how many we are still working on and how many we gave up on and why. The only requirement I had was that we make goals that are realistic, so that we have a real shot of achieving them. Here are our family’s 2019 goals.
