monthly goals listOh my goodness, is it already that time of the month where I have to share monthly goals list again?! Wow, how time flies!!! If you wanna check out how ambitious I was for July, you can read that {HERE}, it seriously amazes me how quickly the time went! Since my kids were visiting their dad for the month, I filled literally every waking hour with work. I can say with confidence that I squeezed every useable moment out of the time they were away!

Getting It Done

As far as accomplishing goals, I think I did pretty well. I didn’t end up joining a gym, but did find the motivation to start running. And let me just tell you, I think I might have figured this whole running thing out! When I used to run, it would be full tilt for as long and as hard as I could go (I didn’t last very long)… I realized recently that it’s okay to run at a slower pace and build my endurance. Wow! I was so incredibly stoked about that!!! Don’t get me wrong, I am not going to turn into a world class runner or anything, but I feel proud of this little accomplishment 🙂
Another awesome thing that happened is that I finally (finally) submitted something I photographed for publication. Yay!!! Unfortunately, I just found out this morning that it wasn’t accepted, but that’s okay. Walt Disney was told that he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas”… yet look at the Disney empire now! I’m looking at this as a learning experience, and will continue to submit my images and see what happens!

With that being said, I’ll be glad when my kids get back in six days. I’ve been working non-stop, and having them home will force me to slow my schedule so I can spend some time with them. In August, my big focus will be on the dreaded “back to school” tasks since both of my babies are going to be in school, eek!
