I decided to publish my goals a bit earlier in May because it does me no good to work on them when so much of the month has already passed. I also want to make more of a concerted effort to maximize all the hours in the day in the weeks (and months) ahead. Call it an unofficial goal, if you will. Despite my best efforts, I am continuously distracted by my Facebook feed, a nonstop barrage of emails and notifications, and of course, dog videos. Okay, the dog videos stay but the rest of the stuff just isn’t worth the precious hours I’m devoting to them.
Let’s have a look at the goals I set for April to see how I did:
Get vaccinated!!! – 1 shot down, 1 to go…
Book a vacation – still working on this but now I’ve decided to go on another little getaway with my bestie and Mila and OMG I can’t wait!
Decompress. I need to get back in the swing of yoga and meditation – eh. I want to strike this out, I really do, but I could have improved on this one
Make blogging a priority again – I published 8 blog posts in April. My best effort? Certainly not, but I think I’ve made peace with the fact that it might never be quantity for me. I like devoting time writing for my blog but also leaving thoughtful comments behind. I want to blog with intention. And I think I definitely improved on that.
Final score: 2/4. Like I always say, not too shabby (but could always be better).
Here are my goals for May!
Declutter and get rid of sh*t. I really can’t stand the mess and things have been piling up in every corner of the house and it’s making my eyes twitch. We have a garage sale next weekend and I can’t wait to just get rid of everything. I’m kind of sad about all the baby clothes, because that’s an end of an era, but there’s no reason to hold on to all this stuff and it’s just taking up space we really don’t have
Spend more quality time with Mila. I work from home so I spend a lot of time with her throughout the day and read to her every night and do all of her feedings/diaper changes, but I don’t think it’s quality time and I think she notices when I’m distracted. I want to play with her and teach her to walk and say words and do fun things but I feel like so many of my interactions with her are chore-based (ie, getting her to drink from her sippy cup, transitioning her to whole milk) and it’s hard but I can make more of an effort, too
Get my second vaccine shot, and (as my friend Susan says), slowly transition to life in 3D 🙂 This one I’m most excited about <3
