Another month has come along and once again I wasn’t ready for it. This year seems to be going by so fast. While I’m excited about the warmer weather and summer activities, I also know this means we are going to get back to winter before I am ready. After making goals for June, I decided it would be a good idea to make some for July as well. So today I will be sharing my July goals. How I did in June Overall, I did pretty well on reaching the goals that I set in June. A few didn’t happen, but that’s okay. ForRead More →

Can you believe that it’s June already? The month certainly snuck up on me. It felt as though it was still weeks away, and then suddenly here it was! After having a fantastic May, I am really looking forward to June. June will be fairly busy. I need to make sure that I stay on track and motivated. Thus I am sharing my goals for the month of June. Gardening Goals For me, June is the beginning of the gardening season.

This year I am making changes and embracing life. Or at least trying to. For years I have struggled to focus and get my life together. I may be able to stick to a routine for a week, but then after that everything falls apart. A lot of my failure revolved around my anxiety and depression.

Everything has a starting point, but taking the first steps can be difficult. From personal experience, I know that starting a new project can seem impossible. Despite the desire to do it, the ‘what if’s’ start to creep into my mind. What if I fail? What if I break this? What if I succeed, but then regret it? What if no one likes it in the end? Self-doubt often stops me before I can even get started. I am tired of failing. More so, I’m tired of not starting anything. Hell, it took me several months before I was brave enough to finally post this.Read More →
