July Goals

Happy July!

I can’t believe how quickly we are flying through 2017. We are officially  4 months away from my baby girl turning 2 (her golden birthday)! It is so hard to believe! 

I am working on figuring out a rhythm for my writing practice, so that is my main focus for July. My other focus is to be more present, more intentional in my day-to-day with my kids. The theme this month for The Year of Creativity is play, which has been something on my heart lately: being more carefree, intentional, and playful with my children. 

I’m still keeping my goals small. Here is what I plan on working on this month. 

Writing Goals:

get three essays ready for submission. 

– wake at 5 to write 3x a week. 

– create a system that will get me in a writing routine.

Intentional Living Goals:

read this book, to coincide with YOC’s theme of play.  Attempt to finish this one too. 

– set limits for phone use throughout the day. 

– write in my kids’ journals (I’ve been writing to them since the day I found out I was pregnant with both of them). 

– rearrange/ organize my desk. 

My little family and I are off to the mountains for a few days to celebrate the 4th! Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸
