It is easing towards Midnight on April 30, so its close enough to May for me to post my May goals, right?
Actually I’m sick and just took some nighttime cold medicine, so I’m hoping my post will be coherent when I read it in the morning.
Want to see how I did on the goals I set for April, visit my Art of Living blog and read my April Goal Recap
- MAKE DAILY TO-DO LISTS
At home and at work I’m wondering where my time is going. I feel like I’m so busy, I never get to slow down or take a break for a moment. But at the same time it seems like I never get anything accomplished. At least, I never get anything I planned to accomplish accomplished.At work I doubt my making a list would help, since the reason I’m not getting anything done anyway is because I don’t have time to do MY job and do everyone elses job at the same time.BUT… maybe having a to-do list will help me keep my ducks in a row at home.
- CONTINUE TO WORK ON MEDITATION
Now that I have a little spot carved out in my bedroom that is supposed to be my Sacred Space and help me ground msyelf, I need to work on Meditation. Its not easy for me. As I mentioned in my April Goal recap between my kids and my husband I’m always interrupted. But it is supposed to be worth it if I could actually make it into a relaxed state.
- MAKE SOMETHING EVERY DAY
I like to make things. But I never make things. I need to make an effort to make something every day.
This might be one of many things:
– I can work on one of my cross stitch patterns.
– I can work in my gluebook or one of my art journals.
– I can make some paper beads.I don’t have to FINISH anything every day to accomplish this, but I have to do SOMETHING creative every day, even for 5 minutes.
- WRITE MORE
Once upon a time I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. I’m all grown up now, and I don’t really write much anymore.
I’m not talking about blogging type writing. I’m talking about my self proclaimed “Short Fiction and Bad Poetry” type writing.
I wish I could get my hands on a 5 subject notebook to write in like I did in high school. I’ll never break down and buy one because I’m broke and they are not cheap. I used to could find them at the Dollar Tree at back to school time, but not for several years.
Anyway, I want to try to flex my fiction muscle again.
Does anyone care to see any of my creative writing if I started trying again?
So, those are my goals for May.
Do you have any specific May goals of your own? I’d love to hear them.
