Summer Update!

This summer, I stayed away from blogging.  I wanted to take time to accomplish some of my other goals.

Being on my own as an adult (Adult? Do I seriously qualify? Whatever!), I realized that I hadn’t accomplished much of anything I wanted to.  I always said I would learn another language (or three), I wanted to learn piano, guitar, and ukulele, I had a list of books and movies I had always wanted to check out. . . the only things I felt I had “accomplished” were getting my degree and surviving the first year of marriage and my job.

So this summer I made a list of a bunch of things I was interested in.  I read books (including Harry Potter. . . only a decade plus behind that trend!), I made new foods, I worked on ASL and Spanish and I played music!

I'm working on a new me.  Not because the old me is bad, but because the old me can improve.

I’m no where near where I want to be, but I’m on the way. I am now trying to carry this on.  I’ve made goals for the school year too.  I’m working on devotions, we have joined a small group, I am keeping the house clean, and I am working out more.  As the year goes on I am hoping to learn more music and pick up on ASL.  I am continuing reading books that encourage me and that I enjoy.

I hope that you will follow me along on this journey.  I’m bound to have some set backs, but I’m aiming for success!

What goals do you have?  What do you need to do make your goals a priority and to follow through?

  1. I think if I woke up a little earlier it make a big difference for me. I do not have to leave my apart until 9:15 to catch the bus to go to campus for work. Getting up earlier would allow to accomplish more things I need or want to, like reading an article for class, working out, dishes, cleaning, or reading something that is not for class.
    I think I need to take the time and sit down write my goals for areas of my life out because if I write them down put them up somewhere, I can hold myself more accountable.
    I want to brush up on my French, get in the habit of working out, and catch up on my own blog…

    I want to learn German and Spanish, how to play the piano, reread the Harry Potter series, and read more books in general. While most of my major goals are currently on hold while I am in graduate school, I try to set aside time every day or every couple of days to read. It helps clear my head and remind me that I love to read, something that is easy to forget when I have readings for my classes. In the financial literacy course I teach, I talk with my students about SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely). We break their goals up and make them think about how they can make progress towards them every month, even if it is just a small step.
