September 2020 Goals

Happy September Everyone.  Who else is excited for the fresh start?  I know I am!  Theres something promising in the air and I am determined to make the most of it.  For a minute I thought about not saying anything out there because with my luck, things always go wrong.  But I would be waiting forever if I waited for my luck to turn around.

Hope Whispers September Goals

So Im putting my intentions down on paper and out into the universe.  And Im just going to prepare for roadblocks along the way.  Have you set any goals or intentions for the month?  Id love to hear what you plan on.  Here are the things that I settled on for September.

Read 2 books.

Clean out the garage.

Break a sweat. Everyday.

Eat more colors

One date night.

Write more.

Go to bed earlier.

Take more pictures.

Both boys have asked me to read a book to them at night, so my book goal should be easy.  Alex chose The one and only Ivan after watching the movie a few weeks ago.  And Anthony just wanted me t read anything so I grabbed The Great Alone.  Its been sitting on my nightstand for weeks.  

My garage has slowly been becoming a dump spot for everything that doesn't have a home and its kinda crazy, so I need to clean it up.  Plus, I don't every want to jump on the treadmill because if feels like I can't breath in there.  But it would really help me reach my sweat goals if I could do that!  Its a win win.

David and I haven't been on a date night since January.  Wait?  February?  Yeah.  And considering we try to fit some adult time in at least twice a month, its been to long!  As much as I love my boys, I always try to make sure that there is time for just David and I.  But now with the boys home ALL day and everything closed, Im kinda missing some alone time.  Gotta figure something out.

The hardest thing on my list is going to be going to bed earlier.  I am still trying to figure out our daily routine.  Well mine anyways.  Week one of school was a mess because I had boys in all my spaces and nothing got done.  This week Anthony is in his room but Alex is still at the dining table.  Which means I have to stay out of or be quiet in the kitchen.  So Im starting dinner way early or way late.  But at least I have my room back, so theres that.  Anyways, by the time I am done cleaning up from the day, Im jumping in the shower at 11pm.  Most nights I don't fall asleep until 3 or 4 and I am up again around 6 or 6:30.  So you can see why I need to work on this most.

The writing and picture taking are all for my mental health.  I miss writing both here and in a personal journal.  But I really need to get back in the habit of taking a few minutes to get some of these thoughts out of my head.  I might sleep better then too.  Last week Anthony and I took some time to play with my camera and I had so much fun.  He reminds me how much I love taking photos of all the things.  And I love that we can do it together too!

I chose this to be my mantra for the month because I really want to believe it.  But to be honest I haven't felt very strong.  I actually feel like Im drowning at times.  Im not sure if its the pandemic, distance learning, going vegetarian or what.  I just know I have questioned my ability to get though it more times than I care to admit.  I remind myself that I am making changes and working on myself so that I can be strong enough.  And even when I doubt myself, I keep putting one foot in front of the other.  I keep telling myself I am strong enough!

Id love to hear your goals for the month.  And your mantra if you have some.  A quote or saying that you are going to use to guide you though the next couple of weeks!  Im all for accountability partners!

Happy September everyone!
