Its the beginning of a new month! How are you beginning February? Have you decided try something new? Or work at a new goal? Or switch a cleaning product or food choice to something healthier? Us too!
Since its the beginning of a new month, its time for everyone here to make a new goal. We have 3 types of goals we rotate through (spiritual, learning, and health) and February calls for a learning goal. Everyone in our family picks something they want to learn and focuses on it for a month. Its a great way to try something you wouldn't normally do. Or are scared to try. Or don't feel like you have the time for.
But really, these are all excuses, right? We all have the time and resources for things that are really important to us. So make yourself a priority. Take a baby step and learn something new with us this month. Maybe its learning about natural cleaning products. Maybe its learning a few new recipes. Or perhaps how to code. Or learn a new sport.
To give you some ideas, my family has chosen to learn how to build a gas engine, how to build an RC car, how to cook meals, and how to play the piano. These are all little things, but at the end of the month we will all have a new skill! And because we are focused on learning, other learning opportunities seem to pop up all the time. Like learning about emotions. And learning how to snowboard through the trees. And learning how to ski (This was me. And it was fun. And hard. But worth the work because soon I can enjoy the slopes with my family!).
We challenge you to try this! February is the shortest month, so why not? You can even print these trackers out to help you track your progress throughout the month! We have these posted in our hallway and mark them daily (you could do weekly too). Its an easy way to make sure you are following through and kids love to see their progress too!
And if this seems a little stressful or new or weird to you, that's ok! Change isn't easy but it can be good. And a little Calming blend on your wrists and temples will get you through that stress (it worked wonders for me on the slopes!).
What are you going to choose learn? We'd love to hear from you in the comments below!
