First off, I love new months. I am a: goal setter, a bullet journal-er, an eternal optimist when it comes to setting goals for myself. I love a fresh to-do list, a new challenge and a clean slate. I like thinking of what can be accomplished in 30 days and what aspects of my life I’d like to fine tune. I think of life as an eternal juggling act in which I have a lot of interests but I sink my attention into the ones that are falling below the metaphorical red line.
This month I am targeting walking and writing. I have noticed that I’ve been less active lately (my excuse is 2 years old and either walks very slowly or wants carried…) and I’d like to remedy that with more walking. I have an amazingly supportive husband who would be cool with me taking a walk anytime I want, I have fun kids who would love to go around the block more often, and I do have the ability to be patient with little legs, there is no good excuse. I am targeting the writing process to help myself write with more consistency and crank out my second book in less than four years (my goal is one year)!
I REALLY love June also because…
- Pride month – celebration of diversity and equality, a stance against discrimination
- Juneteenth – celebration of the end of slavery in the US! Please learn more about this day…just this tiny infographic helps you to see the injustice that it took TWO AND A HALF YEARS for news to reach the south that the Emancipation Proclamation was signed and in effect, ending slavery.
- Summer – pools, vacations, shorts, etc
- my birth month – I have always loved having a summer birthday!
