Twenty-One Things in 2021

It's the last day of 2020 and, as we prepare to ring in the New Year, I've been thinking about some of the things that I would like to do and accomplish in 2021. 

This is the third such list that I've made like this. The first was in 2018 and the second was in 2019; for some reason, I skipped 2020 altogether. πŸ˜• Oh, well! Below is a list of twenty-one things that I hope to do or accomplish in 2021. 

How about you? Have you thought about some of the things you'd like to do in 2021? If so, feel free to share a few of them in the comments section below and we can cheer one another on as, together, we move forward into a bright New Year!


1. Purpose and sow daily to gain greater health in every area (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and financial) 
2. In addition to daily scripture study spend at least 21 minutes a day reading πŸ“–

  1. You have some great ideas! I definitely want to get the Christmas Club goal met this year! Also spend more time in my Bible. I've slacked during the holidays, but i really enjoy it and I just need that daily.

    1. Thanks, Mandy! I'm off to a good start with the Christmas Club goal! It seems that we have more money towards the beginning of the year, rather than later, so I'm doing it backwards. I've already got $202 saved back for Christmas 2021! LOL! I wish you well with your 2021 goals and, yes! Stay in that Word, because, in reality, that's the number one, most important thing that any of us could be doing...especially in the times that we are in. Blessings for the New Year and God bless! <3

  2. happy new year Rebecca...not much on making resolutions cause well i never manage to do them so if i don't make them i don't feel like i failed :-) but I have 2 things i'd like to get done this year if possible...1) decluttering 2) be able to get a cabin on the mountain land...that of course is dependent on finances...

    1. Happy New Year, Becky! I understand what you mean about not much on making resolutions. There's no sense in setting ourselves up for failure from the get-go. I like to make my bucket lists and, if I get to the stuff on them...great...but, if not, no pressure. Thank you for sharing a couple of your goals with me though. The decluttering is one I totally relate to and it's one that I've been working on for years. I've made progress, but there is still much to do in that area here. I am adding your desire to get a cabin on the the mountain land to my prayer journal and pray that that goal is realized this year. God bless you, Becky, and Happy New Year! <3

  3. Such exciting things to do! I am working on how I want my 2021 to look and many of these same things are on my list!

    1. That's awesome, Carol! We can work toward those goals together! May many blessings be yours in 2021! <3

  4. Wonderful list. Curious to see what parks you visit, so many ones I'd love to see (including a return one to your lovely park :) ) My 2021 list is in progress and I hope to share it tomorrow, hoping for better luck with it than I had in 2020. Of course, I think we're all hoping for better luck with everything in 2021.

    1. You and me both, Jean (curious to see what parks I end up visiting)! LOL And, yes!!! Maybe we can finally get together again and do a little nature exploring this year. Have you been to Four Rivers at Rich Hill? It's a neat place! Maybe we could meet there sometime and do some birdwatching! Let me know if you're interested and we'll devise a plan. Can't wait to see your 2021 list and, yes, hopefully, 2021 will be much better and brighter than 2020. Blessings for the New Year, my friend! <3
