Other motivational quotes:
I posted at the beginning of the month that I am taking the 3 in 30 challenge. You can learn more about it by clicking on the button above.
1. Be more diligent with my time- I felt like I was wasting time each day by not doing things that were more productive. I am really progressing in this. I think this goal has been the most productive of all of them so far. Each day before I do something that I know are time wasters, like the computer.. I think of things I could possibly be doing instead. I find that I have alot more productive things to do. I am involved in a 31 Days to Clean challenge this month and I have been using my wasted time to clean and organize my house like I never thought possible and it's so uplifting. Not only is my house getting deep cleaned but I feel better doing it. Seeing the results is a very positive thing.
I mentioned last week that I wanted to take my boys separately to spend one on one time with them. I took my oldest on a run. He wanted to ride his rollerblades and I ran alongside him as we chatted along the trail. I really enjoyed it and he really enjoyed it too.
My youngest son didn't really want to 'do' anything with me. He just wanted to be 'heard'. I spent an hour just letting him tell me everything that was on his mind. He's a talker and this was his outlet.. With this simple thing, he's really drawn closer to me. He gives me more hugs and tells me he loves me more now. I just love that.
2. Save more money- this past week was not good since we had to purchase new glasses for my hubby. That's ok since I was able to save 4 times the amount I set out to do each week the previous week so I'm off to a great start. My goal is to save $50 a week. It's looking good for this coming week.
3. Do a Bible Study- My Ephesians study starts Monday. I have everything I need to get started. Nothing as of yet to say about this particular goal but I am looking forward to getting started.
Well here is what's happening with my goals so far this month. I am happy with my progress and look forward to what's ahead this month...
