Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
You all know how much I LOVE and swear by the PowerSheets. They’ve been a huge game changer in how I set goals for each coming year (or heck, for each coming season! there’s so much flexibility to make them exactly what you need them to be!) that I no longer even set “resolutions” for the new year. I feel that more often than not those goals we set at the start of a new year are often made willy-nilly with no real thought process behind them.
My timehop showed me my resolutions for 2013, and I literally laughed to myself because I know for a fact that those were all set based on what others were doing, and what I thought I *should* be doing. Most of those goals I did not meet, and they were all absolutely arbitrary. But the PowerSheets? I dig deep and they are more than goals, they’re about what I want my LIFE to be like.
This year as I worked through the PowerSheets prep, and closed out my 2018 PowerSheets, I noticed that this year was far more introspective than in the past. As I worked through page after page, I just kept coming back to the idea of transformation, or foundation, or rebuilding. 2018 felt very much like a survival year for me. So much changed for us that I was just trying to keep up. But I knew that I wanted to go back and start digging into the habits and mindsets I want to have in my own life. I was really thinking transform, but then I saw that a related word for transform was “renew” and I knew right away that was the word for me this year!
I want to renew so many areas of my life. I don’t want to be surviving, I want to thrive, but I also want to thrive confidently in who I am. A lot of things fell by the wayside for me last year, and I want to see major changes in 2019! While I won’t share all of my goals with you, I’d love to share a few that I feel comfortable sharing, along with the mini goals that will help me reach the big picture!
I only ended up with seven goals this year, and I’m realizing now that two of them actually should be combined, haha. But the three I didn’t share feel very personal to me, so I’m holding those close 🙂 If you have some goals you’d like to share, I’d love to hear about them!
If you don’t have PowerSheets, but also want an intentional way to set goals for 2019, check out this awesome blog post series here!
