Fall is here!
Candles, scarves, marshmallow fireside, boots, baked cookies here I come🤗
Anyone who has been following this blog for a while knows it's my favorite season!
Every fall I set 'fall resolutions'. This year is no different. Over all, I tend to be a goal setter. My favorite quote is ' If you aim for nothing you will hit it everytime'.
So without furher adieu here are my 2016 Fall Resolutions.
1)6 am Morning Wake up & Routine: My #1 enemy 'Mornings' and I are going to be BFF's! I used to absolutely loathe the mornings but unfortunately if i dont want to be a lazy slob I have to get up and function. Over the years my wake time has varried from super early to super late. This school year I have moved my wake time from 7 am to 6. With the hopes of working out praying and getting some 'me' time before my family gets up!
2) Learning French: I have been doing french lessons since the summer started. According to my app I am 20% fluent in french. My hope is to be 50% by December. Why learn French? Well, I live in Canada where it's our second language and my kids will be learning french in school. I hope to be useful to them when they have homework. My motto is 'You can teach an old dog new tricks'. Though I took french in school, I hardly remember much outside of verb conjugation 😂.
3) Thought Fast: For the remainder of this year I want my thought life to be positive. It's extremely easy to have negative thoughts of yourself,others or situations without anyone knowing. Many of us think things we would never dare utter in public. I want my thoughts to line up with my actions in all I do. The bible says for 'our minds to be renewed day by day.' That's truly my hearts cry for this fall.
A great book on the mind is called ' The Battlefield of the Mind' by Joyce Myer (disclaimer: I am not a big Joyce Myer fan but she really did a tremendous job with this book. One of the best books I have read)
Well friends, that sums up my Fall resolutions. I like to write them in here to keep me accountable. I encourage you to set some fall resolutions for yourself.
Happy Thursday :)
