10 Goals for This Week

10 Weekly Goals

The past few months of our lives have been really full as we’ve been in the process of some pretty significant changes as a family. It’s all good stuff and we’re excited about what these changes mean, but it’s definitely stretched us to the max more than once in recent weeks.

However, we knew that if we just made it to October 20, things we’re going to settle down tremendously. We’re so grateful that God carried us through the past number of somewhat grueling weeks and we’re very thankful to be on the other side of those projects and changes.

In fact, it was so strange to look at my calendar this week — and for the next two months! — and realize how crazily calm it looked in comparison. There are seasons where one needs to just power through, by the grace of God, but I’m thankful that we’ve made it through and into a more peaceful season.

And I’m hoping this means I’ll be able to get back onto the bandwagon of consistent exercise, reading, and some of the other things I’ve been slacking on the past two months! 🙂

    Love that you make 10 goals and take from each area of your life! I am such an overscheduler that my to do list is never this easy! lol

  • I’m glad things are finally getting calmer for you! I can understand what a relief it is to settle down after an extra busy period. 🙂

  • I completely relate to the Crazy Fall Phenomenon. Our (relative) calm days started a week ago Monday and I couldn’t be happier about it!

    Looking forward to see how you like your grown-up reads because that is a GREAT list!

  • Stephanie says:

    We’ve been pushing through the past few weeks too, it has been so busy! I just kept saying if we get through this weekend, it will be smooth sailing! I’m tired but this week is quieter and the weeks after even more so. Just in time to gear up for the holidays (oy!)

    I’ve taken the blogging goals for each area of my life and created a list with boxes to check off for each day of the week. It has helped me greatly with motivation and productivity! I love checking off my little boxes each day and seeing it compile throughout the week!

  • This is my first time linking my Goal/Task list. Thanks for providing this opportunity. I love seeing the different places people are and all they are able to accomplish and wish to accomplish. Such an inspiration to get me up and moving on mine.

  • Shelly says:

    Glad to hear you made it through your busy few weeks. I’m sure it feels great to be on the other side of it.

  • Carrie says:

    Crystal I’ve never publicly stated my goals on my blog but you and Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy inspired me, so I just did my first goals blog post. It will be a monthly feature from now on.
