How Did the Month Go?
So now that we are one month down into the new year, I thought I’d take a moment to think about what I wanted thirty-one days ago, and today. I re-read my Happy New Year post. At the start of the month, I was really excited about the new plans and ideas I had. Truth is, I’m still pretty excited about it. I was thrilled with the idea of starting these new lists and plans. I felt that I had it in me to do the hard work needed to complete these plans. A fact that I’ve proven to myself.
I have started and made progress on three of my projects. My books, my desk, and the clothing. These are the things that I’ve gotten started. Which is more than it sounds. My desk was a nightmare, I could barely use the keyboard, let alone find anything. So tackling that was hard. Thankfully I was able to get a handle on that. I just have to finish it. The papers I have to go through is crazy. I’m quite proud of those accomplishments.
Now there are things I am still not happy with. Like I didn’t do one bit of exercise. That was something I wanted to do. But never started it. In fact, when it comes to my health, all I’ve done is take my medicine. Which really isn’t good. I need to get back on the track I was, granted it wasn’t the most healthy. But, it was better than not. And not, is what this month has been with my exercise, eating, and health habits.
The debt cutting, which is something I wrote about on my other blog post, and I have to say that I’ve been taking some great strides on that front. I have a lot of plans to deal with the debt our family has. It’s just going to be a matter of time when those are dealt with completely. Thankfully, Phil gets bonuses and that will help pay some of the student loans down. That makes me so happy. I have a plan and I’m happy that I’m sticking to it.
Another plan for the past month was to read the bible daily. This goal is discussed in a ton of detail on my Journey of Faith blog. But I have to say here, I did read 31 passages, I did write 30 passages. That is a huge feat for me.
My month has been filled with snow days, cleaning days, projects, daily cleaning, going to church, running around doing errands and such. I’m proud that I haven’t been lazy, that I’ve been able to have fun. That I feel like as a person, I’m growing. So that has been my month.
that is all.
