Is it just me or have the days been going by faster and faster since the year began? It's summer! Careful or I'll burst out into song and pretend to be a miniature dancing snowman from Frozen. Well, I might do that anyway ;) This month is my last month in Seattle, and it is already chock full of things to do. Peter Pan comes to an end in two weeks with its final performances, and this is my last week at Anthropologie. There is organizing and packing to be done, my bucket list to be tackled, and time to be spent with friends.
In all honestly, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. Things to do, places to be, people to connect with. Both things I want to and have to do, places I want to and have to be, and people I want to and have to connect with before I go. Sometimes I think it would be easier to drop everything today, hop in the car, and start the drive. But I'm not that person and that's not the way things are going to go. I want to lean in to this month and invest, even when in the moment I'd rather retreat. To do that, I have to keep things simple. Intentional. Make goals and keep them. Time for a fresh start, right?
June Goals:Make time with Jesus a priority. This is a must, and it needs to be my #1 priority. When the sand starts shifting under my feet, it's because I haven't been spending time with Him or in the Word. It changes everything.
Commit to Peter Pan and finish strong. I want this show to be my best and to go out with a bang. Yes, there is plenty of grunt work to be done, e-mails to send, and sets to be painted. But it will still be a blast if I have anything to do with it!
Keep up with The Daniel Plan. 40 days of healthy? I'm in.
Make progress on Project Life. The Single Girl's Guide to Project Life coming soon! Well, not just for single gals. PL is largely used by moms to keep a family scrapbook, but I've found that you don't have to have kids to keep pretty memories.
Get rid of the excess. I've got a date on the calendar for my Seattle gals to shop the boxes of clothes and decor that won't be going back to Texas with me. Looking forward to cleaning out the clutter.
Change addresses as needed (home & e-mail). A necessary evil that comes with moving.
Brainstorm the new dreams. I'm really excited about this one and I'll keep you posted ;)
And now for a look back at last month. The best thing to keep in mind: progress not perfection.
Catch up on One Little Word 2014 prompts. Eh... we'll get to this one later.
NO eating out except for post-church lunches. Not even going to go here. Womp womp.
