September Goals Review

I did not do well on my September goals, modest as they were.

Goal One – Sing out loud every day. I did manage to do this frequently, but certainly not every day. I had the most success when I was listening to The Carpenters CD, especially Karen Carpenter’s version of “Ticket to Ride.” Adele, also, is good to sing along with, as is John Denver. This is a goal that I intend to keep working on, as it really is a mood booster for me.

Goal Two – Play more with making jewelry. I did buy more jewelry making supplies, but that is about as far as my “play” went. I have been making a special gift for a special cousin and that really did take most of my crocheting time this month.

Goal Three – Set up an Etsy store. This definitely did not happen and I don’t see it happening for quite some time. Some upcoming business decisions are going to curtail any free time for a while, along with impending travel plans. Cross Etsy store off my list of being even a thought right now.

Goal Four – Get back into the habit of daily exercise. This did not happen either. I know it would have been helpful to relieve the stress that I have been feeling the last two weeks of September.

As you can see, not much was accomplished in September. I did sort through the last boxes that were in my August decluttering project and got everything organized and packed away. There’s a couple of piles left to deal with, one of empty picture frames and one of frames with pictures in them, but otherwise, that second room is organized and usable.

I am not setting any goals for October. Just getting through the next two months, with travel plans, the legal issues I have to deal with in Alabama, and business plans to implement will be more than enough for me to handle without trying to remember any extra goals.

    It sounds like you traded one goal for another. Nothing wrong with that. If you aren’t excited about starting an Etsy store, then I don’t see it as such a big deal. It isn’t necessarily going to better your life if you had one. ;)Good luck with the other tasks ahead of you.

    Changing goals is part of life. Hope it all goes smoothly in the next few weeks.

    I bet the cousin will really appreciate the special project 🙂

      I hope so! It turned out to be a bit more of a project than I planned! But I’m very pleased with how it turned out and I will be posting pictures soon – after you have it in hand.
