Why hello there! Thanks for checking out my goals for this month!
- #delightandbethankful / #gratefulnovember Instagram challenge. Done! I didn’t post a photo every day, which I guess means I technically didn’t complete the challenge….However! I thought about what I was thankful for each day, and that’s the important thing, right?
- Plan Christmas gifts. Planned! There are still a few things I’m deciding on, but I’ve mostly figured everything out. Now, onto the shopping!
- Time for myself. Eh, I did this somewhat. It was the perfect time to set that kind of goal, but the toughest month to achieve it in! I did make an effort to see lots of friends, spent time reading and journaling, and found new tv shows to watch at night with Sam (‘Rehab Addict’, anyone?) I’m noticing that ‘time for myself’ is still a very socially-driven activity
(Can’t wait to watch this movie!)
I simply want to enjoy this month. I want to sing along with the nonstop Christmas music playing, well, everywhere. I want to bake and decorate cookies with my nieces. I want to sit in front of the Christmas tree and think about what the ornaments from each year mean to me. I want to laugh – and get somewhat competitive – with my friends over Dirty Santa gifts at Holly’s annual party. I want to try all of Jeni’s holiday flavors with Sam on one of our famous ice cream dates. I want to think of my dad and all the great Christmases we had with him. I want to get a little teary during the Christmas Eve service (like I always do!). I just want to soak up this month and not feel like it went by too quickly. Totally doable, right?
What are you wanting to make happen as the year comes to a close? Share with me in the comments, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas season!
