I’m FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! Ok, not really – but almost lol.
The other day, my son’s teacher sent home a calendar stating that Wednesday (today) starts the countdown to the end of the school year. Talk about good news! I’m looking forward to the first Monday when I don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn to get him ready for school. I have so many things I would like to do this summer – I’m sure I’ll share them with you all in another post.
I’m trying to not get too excited just yet. See, the end of the school year doesn’t just signal the beginning of summer, but also that half the year has come and gone. I know you’re probably thinking “What’s the big deal?” Well, this is the perfect time to reassess where you are on your goals for 2017. You didn’t give up, did you? Good, because there is still plenty of time to get those things accomplished.
Just a quick PSA: if being inconsistent is the only thing you’re consistent at, well good luck lol. Just kidding! But seriously, slow progress is still progress! Don’t get discouraged if you’re not where you thought you would be by now; get to work. Look at your list you wrote at the beginning of the year (start one if you don’t have one) and check off the things you have already accomplished. The second part of this reassessment should be creating new short term goals and deadlines to get you closer to finishing your goals.
I can honestly say that as of today, I have completed at least half of the goals on my list! I’m constantly working on completing the other half, it’s not easy. “Overcoming all obstacles” is my go-to mantra, try it, it works!
I would love to know how far you all have gotten on your list! What’s your next step? Feel free to let me know in the comment section.
’til next time…
