Midyear Reality Check

As noted in a previous post, my life fell apart sometime late spring. True, it was nothing disastrous—more like a mini-emotional breakdown—but it was a call to action.

My reading slowed.

My writing was non-existent.

My health and sanity = Scary Carrie.

I’m happy to report the past six weeks have proven productive, as well as enjoyable. I started charting monthly goals, and while June’s targets were a call to action, I’m pleased to share that I met half of them (plus made progress in the other categories.) I’m in a much better place than I was just over a month ago.

And it feels great!
Even though the elements maybe stacked against us—see, even Fernando is battling wilt—fortitude works. Whether it’s through service to others, improving your own health, or embracing faith, life is about making this day better than the one before. Goals help me focus and stay accountable, how about you?

  1. After speaking with you a few weeks ago, I started planning weekly goals myself. It has been a life-saver. Not only has it improved how much I am accomplishing at home, but nixing the daily lesson plans and focusing on an overal edcational goal has had a remarkable improvement on our homeschooling. now, we’re not worried about what method we use, but the action itself! Glad to see you’re doing better as well. And Fernando!
