October Goals – What Are Yours?

I’m a bit late to the party on this goal-setting kick.

I know most people fire their goals off at the beginning of the month, and I have been reading so many blogger friends’ amazing goals, like Averie’s and Kate’s and Chelsey’s…but mine have taken a bit longer to come to me.

I had to really think about it for a few days. Having just moved everything is in such a state of flux that I really wanted to think about what my goals would be for this upcoming month. They’re going to be a bit more basic than other months, because they’re really going to focus on finding my feet again in a new place.

Here goes…

  • Unpack! Unpack, decorate, and feel settled in by the end of the month.
  • Get back into my routines – yoga, gym, planning some meals so I’m not ordering endless amounts of sushi (as delicious as it is)

  • Register for a dance class at the studio down the road (I haven’t been there before so it’ll be new!)
  • Embrace the new fall weather by getting outside a bit more often. Otherwise the switch from sunny, long summer days to grey fall days can depress me a bit!
  • Get out with a girlfriend or two at least once a week to give my work brain a rest!
  • And face my ultimate fear by showing up for and doing the best I can at the writers’ conference I registered for!

What are your goals? Please share and let me know if you have any tips for achieving mine!

Having grown up in the Caribbean I struggle a bit when the days turn grey. My body naturally craves sunlight!

For those of you that live in areas that get colder in fall/winter, how do you cope with the switch?

  2. Great goals! Sometimes it takes me a little bit longer to think of goals too – I think that everyone gets a little blue once the weather start turning gray and dreary. I know I have a hard time in the winter!
