It’s hard to believe that November is here. The last month has literally flown by, and I find myself on the threshold of another month grateful for what the last held and excited for the next. Since so many of you have expressed interest in goals posts, I am planning to make that a monthly feature here on the blog.
Here are my November 2017 Goals:
1. Finish reading “Reading People” and “Raving Fans“.
Reading is something I have really been working to fit in these days. It is really rewarding, and I’m never sorry when I take time to read, even if just for 10 or 15 minutes.
(see my disclosure policy here.)
2. Send a package to my cousin in law school.
3. Complete current hiring process.
4. Plan Chelsy’s bachelorette party (can’t believe it!!!!!)
Oh, this is probably my favorite! As Chelsy’s maid of honor, I am so honored to not only stand beside her on the Big Day, but to bless and serve her however I possibly can in the weeks leading up to her wedding. One way I have always looked forward to doing that is planning her bachelorette party.
5. Practice violin 3x per week.
This one is challenging for me currently, but I really want to make it a priority!
6. Plan December schedule for my team (employees).
7. Send snail mail notes to my siblings and parents.
Since I am not living at home right now, this is a simple way for me to let them know I am thinking of them. It’s also a special gesture that I hope says, “I love you” to them- I mean, who doesn’t love getting mail?
8. Take off work for 4 days to road trip to the National Bible Bee with Mitchell/Bryn + Josh/Cass.
Fully engage in the family time and disconnect from work (except for emergencies).
9. Eat more vegetables!
It’s easy to get into a rut with food (mine would be eating too many sweets or living on meat/eggs/cheese), but intentionally eating for health + wellness is especially important in the winter months. I need to ramp up the veggies!
10. Practice the principle of “Wherever you are, be all there”.
Whether enjoying time with family, working, or resting, to be fully present + engaged in that activity.
“You don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward…just take the next step.”
