The end of the year seems like a silly time to start a new monthly post, but what can I say, I do things on my own time. I’m joining my Peaceful Posse gals Lindsay and Charlotte to do a monthly post where we share goals for the month and mantras to follow. I really like that idea and I’m hoping it will help keep me accountable for things I’m trying to accomplish! So, here are my mantras and goals for the month of November.
Do you see a theme here? For the month of November in honor of Thanksgiving I’m really trying to focus on being thankful and grateful for all I have in my life. I’ve been posting a daily 30 Days of Thanksgiving picture on my Instagram and over on my blog FB page as a way to help with that, but hopefully these mantras will help me remember as well. One of my favorite priests used to always talk about living life with an attitude of gratitude. So I’m doing that this month – and hopefully beyond.
~ Bring a bag of clothes and bags to Style Encore to sell
~Do at least one Thanksgiving themed craft at home with Ollie
~Clean out the bathroom closet and throw away things I do not need
~Get up early three days a week to work out on the elliptical
~Order our family Christmas cards
~Plan Ollie’s birthday party and his special mom/dad day
~Plan a special birthday date night for me and Nate
~Schedule Ollie’s yearly doctor appointment and his first dentist appointment
~Paint another picture
It might look like a big list, but I think these are do-able. Starting next month with this post I’ll look back at my November goals and see how I did. Sometimes it really helps to list things out and see what needs to be done!
Please feel free to link up any goal posts you have with the ladies and I below! We’ll be back the first Monday of December to talk December goals (most of which I know will involve Christmas I’m pretty sure!)
