October Goals

Ok, guys. I'm posting my October goals up here for everyone to see. I tried to keep the list short and broad so that it didn't turn into my to-do list (it's crazy long and detailed) and so that I didn't set myself up for failure. Notice how the theme of this list is MORE and not specific numbers. Much more reachable goals.

Feel free to hold me accountable. Here they are!

1. wake up earlier

This is going to be a toughie for me. My sleep schedule has been messed up since I started staying up late to watch the Olympics. Then, I continued to stay up and watch Jimmy Fallon. It's getting ridiculous. I'm WAY more productive during daylight hours. Also, I require quite a bit of sleep..probably more than most adults would think is necessary, but I digress. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this? I'm all ears.

2. do more yoga

I don't know why I fight it. I always feel better after doing yoga. It's the actually doing it and making time for it that's the problem. I did recently start a 21 day challenge, so that should help. There's actually a lot I'd like to tell you about my recent experience with yoga, but I'll save it for tomorrow.

3. keep shop stocked

I hope this is always a work in progress because it means people like my stuff and are buying it! For October, it means that I get everything posted so there's a lot available for the upcoming holiday season. I've been adding things and updating a lot lately, so make sure you check it out!

4. read a book

I've always been a big reader. I haven't been reading too much for pleasure lately because I've been glued to my computer or out treasure hunting. I really don't think this goal is going to pose much of a problem since I just picked these up from the library...

5. spend more time with friends

This might be the toughest goal of the month (and where I try not to whine). It's hard when all your girlfriends become mommies and suddenly have families to take care of. It makes finding time to get together near impossible at times, even if they need girlfriend time as badly as I do. Anyway, I'm hoping to sneak in some coffee and lunch dates with the girls this month.

6. take more pictures

I should put post-its that say this all over my house. My mom has 2 naggy mom things that she says to me. One is "Some mascara wouldn't kill you." and the other is " What kind of photographer ARE you??" It's because I never have my camera with me when I need it. It's heavy and clunky. I don't take it everywhere. I have my camera phone in case of emergency now, but it's really not the same. My goal is to take photos for me and for this blog with my "real" camera.

7. blog more often

Working on it.

8. bake something pumpkin

It's OCTOBER. It's the law. Pumpkin baking will happen.

That's it, guys. What do you think? Do you have any goals for October?

Pin It!
