Only three months ago we launched of the Peaceful Posse monthly link up, Monthly Mantras, Goals & Currently. For those that missed it, the link will open up on the first Monday of each month and will remain open for 14 days. So for the month of August, it will open on Monday, August 7th and close at midnight on Monday, August 17th. Our next link up will be Monday, September 4th.
It is totally up to you on how you want to layout or structure your posts. Do whatever works for you, how about that? 🙂
So here goes my update on my July Goals and then we’ll get crackin’ on August’s mantras, goals and currently.
Let’s take a look at what my Goals for the month of July were and their results:
Read more.A big fat fail in this department. I’ve just been busy I guess and haven’t made it a priority.
Focus on Charlie’s post-op recovery and healing. He has surgery on his leg on Tuesday, July 4th.This has been a big fat SUCCESS. Charlie has bee recovering and healing amazingly well and we couldn’t be more happy with where he’s at today. He goes to see the orthopedic surgeon on Wednesday, who will then give us the okay to start rehab and hydrotherapy. We can’t wait!! Live with more intention.I think this was a success, at least I feel like it was. I’m trying to live with more intention and mindfulness. Be more positive.
Mantras for August:
- This may be silly to have as a goal, but whatever, it’s my goal. I want to be more intentional about the fruits and vegetables we buy and cut them up as soon as they come home to the fridge, ready to be eaten. I don’t want to waste any food we’re not eating or that I’ve forgotten is in the crisper so I’d like to try and be more frugal.
- Plan date nights – we don’t go out too often but when we do, we enjoy ourselves and often say we should do that more often. We’ve been together for over 15 years so it’s nice to do things out of the ordinary and mix up routine.
