Being Intentional

I have taken on a challenge. A blog that I follow regularly (The Thrifty Couple) put up a challenge at the beginning of last year, called Be Intentional. The goal is to take 30 baby steps that will help you live your life more effectively. I decided to take on this challenge about a week ago. I modified some of the challenges to be more specific to my family’s situation, and I’m completing the modified challenges in the order that works for me. You can find the Thrifty Couple’s list of challenges here, but for MY blog, I’m going to focus on using my modified challenges. Because I started about a week ago, I have already gotten through several of them. Over the next few days I will discuss the challenges I’ve conquered, but for now I will just list the challenges I’m going to be attempting.
