May Aspirations!

may-aspirations-rco

I’ve decided to begin a new series on my blog. It shall be… Monthly goals aspirations (I feel like calling them goals means I won’t do them). These aspirations will be in five primary categories:  spiritual, mental health, physical health, blogging and adventure. Each month I will post one aspiration in each category and reflect on last month’s progress (see? I’m already expecting failure… I won’t even say “achievement.” Sigh).

Here’s why: I need to get my life under control. I need something tangible to push myself to achieve. I.. really like making lists.

That said, here are my aspirations for May!

Spiritual

My Bible reading has been suffering lately. I haven’t been keeping up with my reading plan (an spiritualaverage of three chapters a day). I usually get about one or two in before life jumps in to distract me and I find myself at the end of the day, barely having read.

As such… I’m way behind and I miss reading more at a time. So for the month of May, my aspiration is to double up on the reading plan. I need to catch up so I don’t feel so overwhelmed looking at my chart. Six chapters a day isn’t even semi-difficult.  I just need to buckle down and do it!

Mental Health

moodswingsI stress out way too easily and, given stress is to blame for both of my disorders, I need to figure out a method for stress management. (I’m sure mom is cheering. Hi, mom!) I don’t want anymore disorders lurking in the shadowy depths of my genetic makeup to show their face!

This month, I’m going to attempt journaling. I’ve tried it many times before now, but never had much luck with consistency. I shall endeavor to journal each night before I go to bed. It doesn’t have to be much, but I’ll aim for at least one sentence. Set aspirations low so that succeeding is easy. Clearly I should be a life coach. 😉

Physical Health

My doctor wants to kill me. I dunno what it is with my choice in doctors- but they all seem to want to starve me to death or overwork myself. This new doctor wants me to work out for 30 healthminutes, 4-5 days a week. Can you believe that?

Yes, I’m being sardonic.

I know my doctor doesn’t want me dead. I know exercise is supposed to help. Guess I just need to resign myself to it.

That said, I will do what I can to exercise (the mere mention of the word makes my toes curl in horror) 4-5 days a week. As in.. maybe I’ll go for a walk or two. Seriously.

Okay, fine! I’ll try to take four, 30 minute walks this week. If I die… it’s on you, Doctor Lee. 😡

Blogging

I’ve accidentally upped my blogging game, recently. It would seem I’m posting two in a week. laptopOH NO! hehe, kidding, dears! I’m rather happy with this rate and so far, I ain’t even worn out. I apologize if my redneckian offends you. ***I’m not even worn out.

I will do what I can to keep up this rate of posting over the month of May. I have several ideas I’d like to give a go and I recently purchased a fancy shmancy camera with which to take all sorts of pretty pictures! Should be a blast. 😀

And that’s about all I shall attempt in the blogging arena of fun. I’m feelin’ a tad lazy today.

Adventure

And now, for the category in which I am most eager to aspire: addddddveeeeentuuuuure (read that like an announcer at a boxing match – I dunno why, just do it)!

I have a bucket list. A rather long bucket list. I find myself adding to it at a break neck pace, yet I’m rarely crossing anything off. It is time for that to change.

This month, I shall tackle *insert drum roll – you better be baiting your breath* stepping foot on all 7 continents!globe

Kidding! I’m kidding. Gollee, I ain’t that good. Again, sorry: ***I’m not that good.

I just thought y’all needed something fancy since I made you bait your breath.

Okay, in reality, I’d just like to go on a picnic. It’s simple, but I’ve never done it (not that I can remember anyway) with the whole nine yards: blanket, wicker basket, food and a good book.

Maybe my nine yards are different than yours.. My point stands!

Well that just about sums up what I plan to try and do this month. How about you? What are some goals aspirations of yours?

  1. You can do it!! Putting your goals here for all of us to see will hopefully be the motivation you need. A lot of the things you are “aspiring” to accomplish this month are things I’ve been meaning to be better at, so you’ve definitely inspired me! 🙂

    1. That’s the hope! I really do need to get it together! 😀 I’m so glad you find my attempt at doing life correctly inspiring. We’ve got this, girl! 😉
