October Goals

 In the words of Anne of Green Gables, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”.

I honestly cannot believe that it is October, I feel like the year has just kind of melted together for me since April… I’m hoping with the change of seasons it will bring about marks of differences and thankfully, things are definitely starting to calm down. I think I had mentioned in a previous that my grandmother passed away in July and I have been dealing with different family things since. 


Since April I have definitely developed some unhealthy habits and I have been so tired some nights that I never really accomplish anything and I am just so unproductive the next day, so I thought I would make a list of goals to hopefully accomplish during the month of October. 

One// Go To Bed Earlier

I have developed the worst sleeping habits over the past few months; I go to bed some nights around 2am, which, as you can imagine, makes me feel really sluggish the next day. 


Two// Read More 

At the start of the year one of my New Year’s Goals was to read 100 books, which at this point I’m pretty sure I’m not going to reach that particular goal… maybe in 2022… I am currently on book #38 & #39, so maybe I’ll be able to read 60 books by the end of the year. In August I read/listened to one book, this month I managed to read four books, which is a mark improvement from the previous month, so I am hoping I can read five or six books during the month of October.


Three// Exercise

I desperately need to get back into an exercise routine. Up until June, I either did yoga or went for a walk everyday, and I can so tell an overall difference in lifestyle when I do workout. My thinking is clearer and I sleep much better at night


Four// Stop Drinking Coke

Fact: Coke is my stress drink, which is so unhealthy, but I guess it is still healthier than beer, maybe? 


Five// Be Better At Saying No

I always felt so guilty telling someone ‘no’ – sometimes I honestly feel selfish in some ways when I do, and I end up neglecting things that I need to do. I just finished Malibu Raising, and one of the main characters in the book came to the realization that she doesn’t really live a life for herself, and that sentiment so resonated with me. Sometimes I feel like I get caught up helping someone with this and that to the point that I forget I need to help myself by saying ‘no’ and walk a path that is completely my own


Six// Take Better Care of Myself

I guess going to bed and exercising falls under this umbrella, but I also need to eat healthier, along with get back into a beauty routine, and not leave things to the preverbal ‘tomorrow’


Seven// Be More Organized 

For those of you who know me in real life, you know that being unorganized is completely out of character for me. I have been letting clothes pile up in my closet and email accumulate to a ridiculously high number. In other words I need to stay more on top of things


Eight// Post More Often On The Blog

I definitely need to be better about posting on here. Since the pandemic I haven’t done a very good job at being consistent with my posts and collaborations. To be completely honest I broke off an engagement at the start of 2020 – my life literally felt like a lifetime movie for awhile… the whole situation was just really disappointing on many levels… Once I started to move on from that my Grandmother’s health started to decline, and some nights everything just seems heavy that I just don’t really feel inspired to post. I really want to get married and have a family and sometimes I really worry about when that is going to happen, and I am so beyond ready to meet ‘Mr. Right’, but I have met some really nice people in the mean time. Even though I worry about it, I feel like I have a lot of good karma coming my way when I do finally meet him

Would Love To Hear Your Fall Goals!
