September Goals | Clear Priorities

September 4, 2018

Hello little space of mine. Oh how I have missed you. It's been a whirlwind of a few months but I keep coming back to this little space of mine, hoping that one day, I will be able to put in the time and effort that I once did. I'm so thankful to my friend Kait over at CommuniKait posted a while back about getting back to the basics of blogging and I'm more than happy to join in. I started this little place (a few different names ago) and made some great friends from posting about things that were on my heart and 


Family

Time

Affirmations


Having the summer off with Adilynn was my absolute favorite. We went got to visit with family at the lake, went to DisneyWorld in Florida, had lots of beach trips, and spent quite a bit of time at the zoo. It was so good for my momma soul and precious moments that I know I will remember forever. Now that school has started back, I am having to be very intentional about where I spend my time. I want to ensure that she feels just as special now as she did this summer, and the same goes for Michael.

Running

45 total miles for the month

4 miles under 40 minutes


I have been making running a big part of my weeks consistently since the beginning of July. From the consistency, there has been big changes in my energy, my body, and my mindset. I started out not being able to run even half a mile, to now being able to run a 5K around 30 minutes (depending on if I'm pushing Adilynn or not). I am so motivated by the changes that I have seen and I am looking forward to hitting new goals with cooler weather. 


School

Complete my Class Video

Update Hours Log

Complete Class Number 3


I have been working on getting my Principal certification through the college that I received my masters from and woowee it has been so great but so hard. These classes have really made me focus my priorities and outline my to do lists to keep me on track. This current class has a lot to do it but we are already on week 2. I love being back in school but also am thankful that it is only 18 hours and not a full masters. 


Work

Guidance Lessons

Affirmations


It has been so great to be back at work and back into the routine of it. The year is really off to a great start and I am so looking forward to seeing what it has in store. I have a renewed excitement about my position as the school counselor and am looking forward to being there for the students on my campus more than ever before. 


Personal

Attend a football game

Read a book

Begin a Bible study- thanks Kaitlyn


Just recently I was able to listen to a Ted Talks speaker on just living life. She created this graphic that says "I don't have enough time clear priorities". I live my life thinking there isn't enough time to do the things I want to. When in reality, I have all the time in the world, I just choose (or subconsciously choose) to spend my time and energy in the wrong places. I keep her graphic as my lock screen on my watch so that I can be reminded that my priorities must take precedence over all the small, insignificant stuff. So here is to me trying to set my priorities in action by writing them down to hold me accountable. It's going to be a great month! 

Happy Monday friends

  2. I love, love, love that my own blogging challenge was so inspiring to you, too :) I have fallen a little bit off the running track and have started walking each day at lunch to really clear my head and it has been great for my mental heath, but I really would love to get back into consistently running again. The line you said about "choosing to spend my time in the wrong places" also speaks to me!
