I cannot believe it's February. Jordan and I walked around Barnes & Noble yesterday and I saw a big bucket of Christmas stuff on clearance. I thought "really?! Christmas was sooo long ago, that is so weird!" then quickly realized it was only the last day of January. Wow.
I'm feeling a little in between the lines right now regarding my goals. I accomplished what felt like a lot this month, in a span of time that felt so short. At the same time, my self doubt creeps in and tells me I'm totally behind. I'm working on speaking truth into that :)
Mapping out and deciding before hand what mattered most to me and then laying out actionable steps to get me there totally freed me up to just DO what I had set out to do from the beginning, which felt so good.
So, let's review January's goals:
Email a friend about discipleship
Yes! I'm excited to get to know her more and see where this leads.
It wasn't 6 months coming or anything...
Clean out garage
I'm thinking this is either a husband only job or a long Saturday job for the both of us. We had a lot going on inside our garage with wedding projects for a friend and then selling my car, so it's been occupied. Onto February's list it goes.
Shoot 10-15 recipes for the book
I seriously cannot believe that I got 13 recipes shot for the book. Car-az-ay. I thought this was going to be the biggest most monumental task with a toddler but in all reality it made our days at home so much easier. Cooking your dinner at noon is the best. Or at the very least it beats trying to make dinner during witching hour.
Plan Jan. + Feb. date nights with Jordan
Y'all, we had the most fabulous date last month. It wasn't fancy at all. In fact, it was at an over crowded restaurant (not my scene) with ice cream afterwards. The special part was that I feel like we really moved forward on some hard things and I left feeling secure in that.
This month we're planning to go on a "progressive dinner" around our city! There are tons of new restaurants down town I can't wait to try.
Solidify vendors for shop
Yes! And so excited to begin working with them.
With my crazy question asking self, they are already so helpful! I'm so grateful this part is over. Let's just say searching online for things is my #1 energy drainer. I can't wait to order all new business cards and more for the shop! Eek!!
Find parenting resources for Feb.
I'm feeling super pressured to read a book for some reason. Books feel like the most obvious choice here, but right now I don't have time to add another book to my list. I get a little crazy when I have too many unfinished :)
I did download podcasts including: God Centered Mom, Inspired to Action (fave!!!!), Focus on the Family and Nancy Lee DeMoss. I think that will give me plenty of mama meat to chew on for a while.
Now, this month's goals (a.k.a intentional things I'm going to make happen):
Big or small, what are you hoping to see happen this month?
