I’m a little late with my third quarter goals but I still wanted to get them posted. I tried to be really intentional with these ones because life has been a bit of a struggle lately and sometimes the smallest things feel unbelievably hard.
I think blogging has been so hard lately because this has always been a space where I feel comfortable to share and be vulnerable but right now I don’t feel ready to share everything going on in my life so writing posts feels a bit fake. Blogging has never been about the views for me and I’ve been brutally honest about where I’m at in life. I want to get back to being comfortable sharing but that might take me a bit of time. Thanks for sticking with me!
Here are a few goals for Q3:
- Be kind to myself. Sometimes I feel like I’m at war with myself to do better and be better when I really just need to take a break. I want to practice self-care and be kind to myself as I walk through this stage of my life.
- Setup health appointments. I go to the Neurologist this week for a checkup but I need to find a new primary care doctor since mine moved away. My SIL recommended one so I want to make an appointment. This doctor was the one who helped advocate for her during her infertility journey so I think it would be a good place to start.
- Spend time with friends and family. Now that we’ve pretty much gone back to almost normal after the pandemic I want to make sure I’m catching up with friends and family. I haven’t spent enough time with my grandparents lately and I know I’ve been slacking in the friendship department. I want to prioritize my relationships this quarter.
- Celebrate 10 years with Brett. The past few months have been hard because Brett and I haven’t been able to spend much time together. I want to make sure we set aside time to celebrate our 10 year anniversary!
- Read 3 books. I used to also say that I wanted to read 3 books and write reviews but that probably won’t happen. I’ve really been enjoying reading lately though and finally read Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. I’ve already passed the book onto a friend because it was so good and I wanted to make sure she read it too.
I hope you are all doing really well! I’m going to try to catch up on some of the blog posts I’ve missed.
Do you have any goals this quarter?

I just read Where the Crawdads Sing too! It was so good, it kind of got me back into reading mode.
Agreed! I haven’t been reading very much but it made me want to start again. I was re-reading the Harry Potter series but I took a break.

Hi. I’ve missed out on reading blogs lately. A lot is on my plate these days. Like you, I miss sitting down at the computer and sharing my life with my blog family. I don’t know when ill be able to do it, but God will help me find a way.
I hope all is well. I pray all goes well with the new doctor and you are able to return to blogging the way you want. 🙂
My husband and I are celebrating our 5 year anniversary this weekend with a little local getaway, being kind to ourselves! 🙂 maybe I’ll get to a book or two I’ve been meaning to read! 🙂 I love the mindset of setting goals for self-care!
