This is a popular number for me right now. Not just one on its own, but ONE a day, or ONE a week, or ONE a month… it’s how I set my goals, and try to focus a little on me and improving myself. I decided to give my goals a voice, and perhaps a little motivation too. This year I have the goals of visiting the temple ONCE a month and reading the Ensign cover to cover every month.
PROJECT ONE: TEMPLE
Thus far successfully completed, thanks to my mother and sister and in-laws for babysitting so I could could go and GO WITH MY HUSBAND !! 🙂
PROJECT ONE: ENSIGN
This one is fun because I seem to breeze through the stories and articles and love every bit of it! I love the new layout and new “sections.” However, May became a bit of a challenge because I didn’t get it before I left on vacation and it is the general conference talks (its usually the issue I didn’t get all the way through in previous years), thus I gave myself a new project one, to read ONE talk a day (I’ve been pretty good at doing so). I’ve really enjoyed reading one talk a day to really think more about what was said at conference, and to read what I didn’t hear while taking care of the kids!
I also have a goal to do my VISITING TEACHING every month this year…
PROJECT ONE: VISITING TEACHING
Sadly I totally missed May, I was out of town/country for 25 days, but still I could have emailed or sent a card… sorry girls, I’m recommitting myself!
After Stake Conference today, I’ve decided to add another project…
PROJECT ONE: SCRIPTURE STUDY
I want to study my scriptures ONCE a day, not just read or breeze through a section, but read, ponder and study. (I’m pretty sure this goal goes back on my new year’s resolutions quite frequently, so thus I resolving once again to do better!)
Now most of my projects appear to be working on improving my spirituality. I guess it’s a big focus for me this year?! However there are a few other projects on the list.
PROJECT ONE: ADVENTURE
I want to have an adventure with the chicklets ONCE a week, sometimes ONCE a DAY if things seem too boring around the house. Thanks to a great price on a family zoo pass, the FREE play areas in the mall, storytime at the library, playdates with friends, my mom helping us get a family pass to the ADVENTURE SCIENCE CENTER, and our inflatable pool…I’ve been doing pretty good with this one!
PROJECT ONE: CRAFT
I also set a goal to craft ONCE a week. This one hasn’t been so good, but I’ve been squeezing in a few projects and I got a list running in my head that I just need to start…
and my other NEW goal to add to the list–
PROJECT ONE: EXERCISE
For a little bit I was trying to do something everyday, but that petered out rather quickly. SO HERE I AM, ready to jump back on the wagon. I’m gonna do it. 20 minutes a day… I can find that kinda time right?
Well, here’s to goals and projects…
Hope this week goes well!
