Goals are hard. And I don’t need to tell you that. Everyone who’s tried making a list of goals, wanted to lose weight, wanted to exercise more, they will know that it’s hard as hell.
I don’t even like setting goals ’cause I instantly start picturing how I’ll fail at reaching them. But I’m doing it anyway! And I’m calling this list my itty bitty goals because I don’t enjoy the pressure of epic, giant, need-to-do-this-or-the-world-burns goals.
These are things I wanna do. I’d love to do them. And if I don’t – too bad.

Easy like Instagram
I will not blog about every step of progress or even every goal. I’m not out to make this a hassle ’cause we all know how that’s gonna turn out.
Instead I’ll be Instagramming using the hashtag #ittybittygoals whenever I feel like you guys need an update. :)
I also made an #ittybittygoals page to keep track of how I’m doing, all the lovely Instagrams and any blog updates.
You’re doing it too!
I invite you to join me in making small but lovely things happen. Jot down a few goals (in your planner, on a chalkboard, in a notebook) and set a time frame. Could be until the end of the year, or until your next birthday, or before you graduate. Anything really. Keep it near you and try to make room for it in between the packed lunches and laundry.
- You wanna paint your kitchen cabinets yellow?
- Or learn how to do a fishtail braid?
- Or save up for a new camera?
Those are all great little goals! Feel free to get inspired by my goals too. And share your progress online using #ittybittygoals.
Nothing feels better than checking off stuff on a list. I’m very excited!
