Can I be real with y'all for a minute? April felt like it should be categorized in the "total bust" column. I accomplished very few of my goals for the month. And the ones I managed to check off did not happen in the intended time frame. Cue the game show "fail" sound: wah,wah, waaaaah.
But! Moving on. It's a new month. With fresh intentions and new goals! Out with the old and in with the new. Today is a new day. Put the past behind you. ( insert cheesy motivational cliché here )
My intention for May is to be focused. This was a big problem in April. I let my focus wander and got off track and off schedule too many times. It's difficult to get things accomplished when that is happening. Stay focused on the task at hand. Stay focused on the goal.
Which brings us to my May Goals:
Go to bed and wake up earlier: I have been staying up later than usual. Which leads to sleeping until I have to get up to get the male offspring to school. This cuts into my morning quiet time and somehow makes my entire day feel a little off. This could be part of the reason I have had trouble keeping focused.
Read more: Going to bed later is also cutting into my normal reading time. I need to watch less television and read more this month. I am aiming to finish the book I am currently reading and read 2 more.
Mail graduation announcements: Self explanatory. Although maybe I should add the words "without getting teary" to the end of that. Oh, who am I kidding? That's gonna happen! Bittersweet times.
Make time for fun: May is looking to be a very busy month. I want to be intentional about enjoying time with my loved ones.
What are some of your goals for the month of May?
