July goals

This year is seriously flying by!  Seems like the other day we were wishing each other Happy New Year, getting back to work and returning to routines.  Now it is July and I moan about how cold it is about 400 times a day.

Anyway, as I sit here having a quick lunch and enjoying the heater I thought I’d share two quotes I aim to remember throughout the month as well as my July goals:


The top quote is a reminder that choosing to be grateful is a choice.  Not dwelling on negative things or wasting time worrying.  Looking for the positives in a situation isn’t always easy but it is essential at times!


The second quote is something I try to remember often.  Life is too short!  This quote ties in so well with my previous post https://my30somethingadventures.wordpress.com/2017/06/28/life-is-too-short/

My goals for the month are:

  • Begin my day with quiet time.  Starting with a cup of tea, a daily reading and prayer.  I have realised if I don’t start my day like this, I often don’t find the time later on.
  • Make hubby’s birthday later this month awesome.  I enjoy his birthdays as much as my own so this is an easy goal!
  • Drink more water.  Try match each cup of tea with a glass of water.
  • Visit gym twice a week (minimum)
  • Have 2 Facebook free days a week.
  • Read 3 books
  • Spend more time blogging.
  • Vist and do a post on Franschhoek
  • Try a new recipe
  • Stay on top of the housework and laundry
  • Sort out linen cupboard, declutter study cupboard and organise bookcase
  • Keep things in perspective.  Leave work stress at the office.  Appreciate the simple things in day to day life.

What are your goals for this month?

  1. I love the goals of having 2 Facey Free days a week. Spending less time on social media is something I’m trying to work towards too!

    • I ended up having 4 Facey Free days last week without even realising it. I prefer to read blogs and am glad I found yours 🙂


  2. This year really is flying by… I keep saying I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S THE SUMMER! Because it really was just the New Year, wasn’t it?

    I love your list of goals. Those quotes are amazing, too. I’d like to start off my morning with a bit of deep breathing/mindfulness practices. I have this book of tiny mantras, I think it’s called 5 Good Minutes and it’s filled with practices you can do each day that only last five minutes. I’m going to have to pick this up again 🙂

    Best of luck with all of your goals this month! XOXO

    • This year is just flying by far too quickly!
      That books sounds great – I’m going to look out for it next time I go shopping.
