The thing about goals… they lurk around til you meet them. They’re like the overly-attached girlfriend, just staring and staring and waiting.
Remember that I set good personal goals for April? I hope you set your own too, seriously. In my honest opinion, short-term goals (month-long) are the best kind, because you can get A LOT done and you can’t procrastinate forever since it’s a somewhat short time-frame. I wanna hear your update in a comment if you are taking on some April goals. Holla back.
Here were mine, according to a March blog::
For April, I’d like to run 30 miles, read 3 books (or at least finish 3 haha), and write 30 cards. With cooking and prophecy, I’m not going to set a number, but only say that I am going to share my progress.
RUN 30 MILES:: I’ve clocked in 17 miles on the 15th, putting me over halfway at the halfway point of the month. I also lifted a lot of weights, so I better be sore tomorrow. Woot!
READ 3 BOOKS:: With books, well… I’m reading 3 books. I’m working on Deep Unto Deep, Pursuit of God, and Insurgent… and I’m very much in the middle of all three, and do not want to stop any to finish another. We’ll see how it goes.
WRITE 30 CARDS:: On card writing, I think I’ve written a lot of encouragement but not many on actual cards… good news is that I got new cards and stationery for my birthday, and I’ll be filling those out. I’d say the count is 5/30. Room for improvement here.
COOKING:: yes. I have cooked much more at home. Chicken, veggies galore, spaghetti, quesadillas, seafood fondue, and fun different salads. It’s been a blast to make chocolate-covered frozen bananas, my new sweet addiction.
PROPHECY:: YES! God has turned it up a notch in my dreams as well. I’ve been listening more, and it’s been a fruitful pursuit of the Lord in that way, especially during the tough times this month.
That’s my halfway update.
I want to hear how you guys are doing on your April goals… how crazy that time is flying! I don’t hate it. 😉
