I have talked about how October was a crummy sorta month from a balance perspective, and as I dance my way into November I am doing so with a commitment to make it better. I am going to trim down my NEED to DO’s and make my days a little easier to handle, and I am going to remind myself what I love about life, and continue to focus on THOSE things and not allow distractions to pull me aside.
So, November, this is it. You and me, working together.
My goals for the month to keep me on track and in my “happy place”
I am working with the time change and heading to bed earlier, and greeting the morning with a better attitude. All October I felt as if I was playing catch up on my sleep and really got off on the wrong foot each morning tired and irritable.
I am starting a challenge group where we all commit to writing EVERY day this month. True, organic content that comes from my heart onto the page. A reminder of why I am on this platform and some motivation to get back into the routine and rhythm of my words.
I miss my kitchen, and our yummy thought out dinners. I dusted off my old cookbooks and I am going to start making time for cooking and creating. Plus, there is the added bonus of reducing the 4pm stress of WHAT AM I GOING TO MAKE FOR DINNER that I am so accustomed to from October. This month I will cook. And eat!
I have two dogs that need walking and a pair of runners calling my name. I am going to get OUTSIDE. I am going to move, and breath and hopefully break a sweat this month. Even if it is standing in the meadow, knee deep in chickens, I need oxygen and I will put myself in places to get it!
Too many unfinished projects going on over here! November is the month to FINISH! We have a partially renovated rec room that needs some attention, not to mention my ever growing list of work items. It is time to re-focus and start ticking off boxes! Having the feeling of completion only builds on my feelings of success. And as my success grows, my passion for my days grows as well. . . and I am in need of a cycle change!
October kicked my ass, and I have intentions to make November my partner in success. Who is with me?
