June goals


Looking back on May, I feel like somewhat of a failure since none of my goals were fully accomplished. Knowing it would be a full month, I cutback and only made three goals for myself. I'd say there was progress, but I cannot cross any of them off.

A look back at my May goals:
  1. Cut back on my sugar intake. Not even close...
  2. Go on a date with my husband. We did have a movie night at home on our anniversary, but that doesn't really count since we did not leave the house. 
  3. Plan a summer getaway. We have something in the works and I think it's the closest I came to reaching a goal all month!

For the month of June, I am tempted to not set any goals. Earlier this week I told myself I wasn't even going to write this blog post because of all that's going on with my work life. 

However, I think there are some specific goals I can set for myself to be able to relax rather than stress me out. My approach for June is not necessarily to check things off, but to breathe and enjoy the beginning of summer.
  1. Give away at least three bouquets of peonies to neighbors or colleagues. We have a beautiful peony bush that will bloom in the coming week and I love having fresh cut blooms in the house. I shared them with coworkers last year and it was a big hit, so I'm looking forward to doing so again.
  2. Go out on a date with my husband. Yes, it's staying on the list.
  3. Cutback on my bread consumption. I was originally planning to stop eating it altogether, but I am rethinking and hope to only eat bread only one day per week.
What are your goals for the month?

  1. I did really well cutting back on sugar in April but then in May I got off track and it's SO hard to get back into it! The first few days are the worst.... good luck with your June goal :).

  2. It's funny I was feeling kind of stressed out too with writing out my goals this month, so I decided to take a step back and kept it simple this month and do away with my usual list, just to give myself time to rest, evaluate, and listen. I think sometimes I have a way of making even basic everyday things into a task, then get disappointed when I don't do it. so I like that you've only picked a few things to focus on. sometimes it's good to keep it simple and work on a few things at a time in a few different areas. it's important to remember life's a journey. It's not a big deal if you don't get everything done and accomplished on a certain time table. the fact that you're even working on something means that you're making progress. Sometimes it's good to just stop and smell the roses, or the peonies in your case ;-)
