September Goals



It is the first full week of September! Wow friends. We are in the last quarter of 2017, and I don't know about you, but I want to make this time count! I am becoming more and more aware of the fact that our time here on earth is oh so precious. Each month as I consider my goals, I want them to be steps that I am taking toward making the world around me a better place, not just about making me a better version of myself.

Here's what I was working on in August:

August Goals

Monthly

four online classes 
two in-person oils events or one-on-ones
finish part three of my book
have our new neighbors over for dinner

Weekly 

work out 5x a week
meal prep
complete Bible study homework
write someone a note

Daily

read the Word
pray
encourage Ror
encourage someone else
be timely


The Nitty Gritty

August was a great month! I was super encouraged and excited about momentum that I found in my Young Living business! Last month, four new people joined me on this wellness journey! I love being able to help people learn more about essential oils and how to incorporate them into their daily lives. It is such a joy! I didn't host any big events in person, but that's ok. August is crazy with the influx of college students into town, and that means more work at church, too! We didn't have our neighbors over for dinner yet, but we have had some more conversations and are encouraged by the interactions we've had. Meal prep happened and made life SO much easier! AND I was able to get to work on time 95% of the month! Rory gave me some grace on a couple days where I didn't feel well or was literally one minute late. :) I'm hoping to turn over a new leaf and be more timely with consistency.  



What I Was Grateful for in August

One highlight of last month was that I had the privilege of celebrating my best friend's first baby with a tea party shower! It was such a special day and was so much fun. We also got to enter into the new school year with a retreat for our new interns at the church. That weekend was a blast and I am truly looking forward to getting to know all of them better as the year goes on. They are definitely one of my favorite parts of my job. During this summer I also was part of a great ladies' Bible study, and we celebrated the end of our time together with a lovely potluck dinner and shared about all God had taught us. It was truly a sweet time, and I am so grateful for them. At the end of the month I was also able to attend a Bible journaling workshop hosted by Lifeway with the girls from our couples small group, and that was so fun! I learned so much! Annndd we had a blast doing more furniture projects for our home!
