This is inspired partially by Mr. Bee’s plan, and partially by my realization that I’ve been subconsciously putting my life on hold in a lot of ways while I wait to get engaged and move to be with my bf. The point of this isn’t to make proposals happen any faster, but to help us make the most of this time while we are still single and able to focus on personal goals in a way that will be more difficult once we are planning a wedding/married/have kids/etc. I think it will also make the waiting go by faster, and help us regain a feeling of control over our own lives.
I’ll go first- I am going to focus on:
1. Passing several professional exams and adding more value to my team at work
2. Cooking more of my own meals and eating less take-out
3. Getting involved in at least one social group outside of work in my new city
4. Focusing more on my faith and prayer life
5. Swimming or running several times per week
So what are you guys trying to achieve right now? Let’s use this thread to keep ourselves focused!

I’ve been thinking along the same lines recently! As part of my new years resolutions/attempts to deal with waiting, I have decided to focus on getting fit (losing weight) and learning to cook. One week down so far… If anyone has any easy and delicious go-to recipes to recommend for beginner cooks I am all ears!

I plan to get a new job and get my permanent residency visa for living in Canada. Actually last night when my boyfriend and I were talking, he said he’s more concerned about me getting my PR than getting engaged right now. Which makes me happy in a way because that means he really doesn’t want to be without me again in a LDR. But at the same time, he knows I have wedding fevor and I think he’s sort of enjoying watching me impatiently wait for him to propose.

There are such great goals up here! Mine are
- Finish up my current work project on time & in really high quality condition
- Train for my 10-mile race on April 1
- Get at least 8 hours of sleep per night (I am so bad at this!)

Just a few of my many goals. I love goals 🙂
