Gratitude and Goals

My Gratitude:

  • It’s my birthday month, so that’s a fun thing 😉 Go celebrate me! Send me presents or virtual hugs or whatever.
  • Hubby will be home to celebrate for a short visit, and it will be his final visit home. After that, he’ll be completing his assignment and coming back! And the chaos will begin.
  • We have more information about our upcoming life changes! We can start planning now. I’m excited with what we were given because of the easier transition into this new life. Still hush hush but contact me if you want details on what I’m rambling about ha.
  • My big work agency submittal project was completed a week early so we all got a pat on the back and have been taking it easy now that March is done!
  • More fun birthday parties and more to come. At least those give us something fun to do on weekends.
  • Our town’s festival was the first weekend of April and I went both days with different friends and just hanging out in the fresh air and enjoying having friends has been wonderful.
  • We had a major storm come through and my house had some electrical damage – lightning perhaps? Most of the issues were taken care of by service calls and smallish costs on our end. So I’m thankful it wasn’t a bigger issue, though inconvenient and stressful anyway.

My Goals:

  • Continue picking away at the goals to rock my blog! I bought the Elite Blog Academy course, and need to continue to work through the assignments. Module 1 Unit 2 is a doozy with the pillar posts assignment. Write more good posts, got it.
  • Continue the bed before midnight goal. And to focus on my health. And self-care. Enough with all the getting ill. For serious!
  • Keep working with the toddler on his tantrums. I have such a hard time with this. I feel like I’m just waiting for Daddy to come home and take over for me ha.
  • Harmonize. Stay positive. I am not good with change, so I struggle here.
  • Declutter. Get rid of stuff. Minimize. Too much stuff in our home! My Mom made a great dent, but there is so much more to do and I haven’t made much progress since her visit.
  • Make a plan for our transition.

Welcome to the Gratitude and Goals Linky Party hosted by Julie at Fab Working Mom Life and Suzanna at Mama Motivates!

This party will start on the first Friday of each month, but you are welcome to link up anytime during the month.

  1. Loved this Julie! Gratitude is something my wife and I practice each and every day. Without it, Life seems dark and dismal-when it’s really not! And goal-setting? What better way to set standards for yourself and better your the opportunities for your family. Thank you for this!

  2. For of all Happy Birthday! I’m sending you a virtual bday cake! Second, I’m so excited to see what changes you are talking about and Hooray for hubby coming home soon. I also, can’t wait to hear how the EBA helps you.

    • Thanks Nikki! EBA is a beastie. Lots of homework and thinking involved heh. I just need to devote more time to doing the actual post writing.
