Wow, it’s already the end of July. I can’t even believe it. July has gone way too quickly and it’s gotten away from me.
I’m a very goal-oriented person and in June I wrote all my goals for the month. And now that over a month has passed, I thought I’d share how how I did.
Read More – a big fat failure
I have a new book to read, Girls, and I am really enjoying it. The kicker is that I haven’t take the time to sit down and read. I didn’t make it a priority to read before going to bed for most of the month. But, we are going on vacation soon and I know I’ll do a lot of reading on the plane. I hope to continue to make reading a goal and to keep making it part of my routine.
Write More – success!
I am happy to report that I wrote quite a bit in June. I’ve fallen a little behind, but I am happy with where I am and with the progress I have made. It really is therapeutic for me to write and I’m only getting more and more comfortable with it…in my humble opinion.
Understand Our Cash Flow – fail.
I’m just going to add this to the list to keep trying to understand. When we went to Maine, we spent like we were on vacation…and we were. It’s hard to get a true understanding of your spending when you go on vacation. We’ve only had “real” expenses for about 3 months, so it was probably a little aggressive for me to have this as a goal. But, it is still a goal of mine to understand and be better about our money. Everyone’s situation is different and I want to make sure our situation is the best it can be.
Start Tennis Lessons – a huge success!!
I’ve written about my love of my tennis lessons already and I am so proud of myself for finally doing this. I am loving my weekly lessons and then when Vinn and I play together on the weekends. I’m no Serena, but I am absolutely better and really happy with my progress.
Plan Our Next Vacation – check, check, check…sorta.
We actually have quite a few vacations on our agenda. Technically, we planned this in July, but I’m still happy that it’s done. We have some great adventures on the horizon.
All in all, June was a great month and July has been even better. I don’t have true goals for July, especially since it’s almost over, but I am content with how I’m moving forward and continuing to grow as a person.
Do you set monthly goals?
I have certainly touched on some of the cultural differences between life in Germany…
You would think getting mail would be the same everywhere, wouldn’t you…
