I could not be happier that today is December 1st. I love the first of the month in any time frame, but December carries with it a heightened sense of family, joy, contentment, and enthusiasm. It could be that December includes Christmas, my birthday, and a reduced number of work days ::cough, cough 13 cough, cough::. Focusing on what is most important about December 1st, the kickstart of a new month, I want to establish my Currently and monthly goals.
- Stay a week ahead on my SNHU classes. There are 10 modules per term and I’ve been able to maintain a 1-module lead.
- Run four days a week. I have two half marathons this month: the Divas Half and Jacksonville Beach Half Marathon
- Gratitude is the Attitude! I want to make sure that I take the inspiration that I’ve been given by the special friends and family in my life that have shown me how to be kind, considerate, and grateful no matter what obstacles are placed before them and incorporate that in my life. I know that I’m not unique in my tendencies to focus on the empty part of the class, but that doesn’t mean that I have to stay that way. I will make this goal measurable by writing down three things that make me happy every day in my Bullet Journal.
loving my Thanksgiving holiday weekend with my extended family. #VeevaLV
studying nouns, verbs, descriptors, determiners, and Structuralism
enjoying the calm before the storm that is going back to work tomorrow
preparing mentally for my long run of 11 miles this morning.
wondering if I should run outside or hit up the treadmill for said 11 miles.
laughing because I always seem to need more things when I get an email that has the word “Sale” in the title.
reading a heavy selection from this pile (still):
listening to the “Straight Talk with Ross Mathews” and “Here’s the Thing with Alec Baldwin” podcasts
thinking I’m adding more “-ing” to my December Currently to delay those 11 miles…
feeling like it’s time to get up off the couch!
See ya soon!!!
