July Goals and Mantras

I know we are already a good week plus some in to the the month so I'm a little late sharing my goals.  The last few weeks kinda threw us under the bus.  But I have a few weeks left to right it all and get things back to our new normal.  Or maybe just close to it.  That would be good enough for me.

I might not have smashed all the goals I set out to, but I think I did ok considering.  I managed to put a good dent in most of them.  This month goals should be pretty easy to cross off too as long as there are no more bumps in the road.  Here are this months goals and mantras.

  • Spend some one on one time with the boys.
  • Knock out some appointments.
  • Renew my library card and read a real book!
  • Swim as much as we can.
  • Try getting at least 6 hours of sleep at night.
  • Post 3 times a week.
I know that is looking a little sketchy.  I love getting a little one on one time with each boy.  Sometimes its lunch or a trip out somewhere.  Sometimes it's playing video games or watching funny videos when they should be sleeping.  I managed to get Anthony about caught up with his doctors. He sees the Neurologist and Endocrinologist next month then he is set for a few months.  I renewed my library card but have been sticking to ebooks still.  They return themselves and save me late fees.  Don't judge!  I slept every night and most nights were 6 hours or close to it. Thats a big deal for me. I managed to post more than 3 times...the whole month.  Life man!  It just happens. We still found time to swim though!

  • Post 3 times a week
  • Take a nap on the beach.
  • Schedule 3 appointments.
  • Back to school shopping.
  • Try 2 new recipes.
  • Print some pictures.
This month is all about getting my life right with Jesus.  For real!  If I feel like my life is a mess, it has to be bad because my life is always messy.  So now that I put them out there, Im hoping to get it all done this month!

These seem pretty fitting for my current situation...

Last month I worked on giving myself some grace.  I had gotten caught up in the web of comparison.  I was feeling less than because I can't do what other moms, wives and women are doing.  I haven't been as healthy as I could be. And I was feeling a little stuck.  So I spend the whole month working though that.  Every time I felt like as I was digging myself out of that mess, life kept kicking dirt back in on top of me.  But if there is one thing my life has taught me this far, is that sometimes it comes easy and sometimes you just have to keep your head down and put one foot in front of the other.  So here I am.  I made it to today.  And I'm still trying my best.  Im embracing my mess and Im not going to apologize for it.

How is your July looking?  What are your goals for this month?
