Goals and Mantras for August
It’s the beginning of the month and that means it’s time to look back at my goals for the past month and set some new ones along with sharing some mantras to follow. First up, let’s look at how I did in July. I tried to really go simple after not doing so well with my goals in June.
Learn to love my pixie hair again – Done! I bought a couple of things that have helped me with styling along with watching some great style videos. I am still going to grow my bangs back out just a little bit but overall I’m much happier with my hair than I was a month ago.
Shop my own closet – Hahaha oops went thrifting again. This was likely an unrealistic goal. I still feel I’m being smart about my shopping though.
Move my body in some format every day – Yes. Even if it’s just a stroll outside on my afternoon break at work I am working to move around each day. It really helps having my Apple Watch keep me accountable!
Get back to using my Start Today journal. Nope. No good excuse here either other than plain laziness.
Find a storage unit for the kitchen. Nope. I’d like to get on this though, we got rid of Ollie’s play kitchen and we have space to fill where I’d like to store things like our crockpots and such. An Ikea trip is probably in our future.
Considering I didn’t really achieve any of my goals in June, I’m happy I hit at least two in July! It was a busy month too, so I think this is pretty darn good. I’m going to try to keep August’s goals simple too. Trying to still enjoy summer if we can!
~Get Ollie ready for school
~Go to the State Fair
~Have a bonfire
~More disc golf
~Find a storage unit for the kitchen
A mix of fun and things that have to get done. I want to enjoy what’s left of summer but I am not burying my head in the sand that school starts in a month either. I think we can balance some playtime and some get stuff done time too.
I’m not going to lie, when I look back I don’t know if this will go down as one of my favorite summers ever. Time has been on fast forward. We had sickness that took us down for a couple of weeks. We’ve had stress at work. We’ve had some crappy weather. There’s been a few other things kind of getting me down too. It happens. But I’m determined to turn this ship around. It’s not too late to have a great summer and even if August is the “Sunday” of summer, it could turn out to be the best month of the season. Therefore, my mantras will be focused on finding positives.
Let’s make it a good month friends!! My Peaceful Posse ladies and I host this link up every month, so if you have a goal post for the month, feel free to share it with us below!
