August was hard. Like, really hard. Nothing drastic or tragic happened last month, but it was a super long, stressful, frustrating, confusing month that really took a toll on me. I had to spend a lot of time looking deep within myself and in prayer to figure out what’s next and answer some pretty tough questions that came up last month. Overall, I’m left exhausted and in a rut. It’s okay, but it meant for a not-so-gratifying end for my August goals. Let’s recap.
1. Read three books.
Fail. I only read one, but you can check out my review from yesterday, here.
2. Better eating habits.
Yes, yes, yes. Although they’re not quite where I’d like them to be, I’ve gotten better about portion control and am learning not to beat myself up too much when I decide to indulge (like Sunday’s lunch of delicious sauerkraut).
3. Book of John study.
Sadly, this one was a fail. An epic one. However, I’m not upset about it at all. If I can’t give it the focus and attention that it deserves, then I’m glad I didn’t go at it only halfway. It’ll be on my list this month, too, so I’m hoping for some patience and focus to dive right in!
4. Organize my room.
Yes! I picked up and cleaned up clutter, so now I have an organized mess – although, organized chaos is more like it!
5. 2014 vacation pictures.
Oh yes. It was so, so fun to go back through all of these pictures! Be on the lookout for the posts (FINALLY) to be up soon! 🙂
As for September, I’m keeping it simple.
