We are almost halfway through the year which means it’s time to reestablish some of our goals! My boyfriend and I had our six-month check-in this weekend to reassess some of our annual goals, and it was a nice little reset to make sure we are going into the next six months of the year with fresh eyes and accurate goals. May was a pretty good month for me, and I’m excited to see what June holds.
Let’s get started!
May 2021 Goals
one | take a day, and do nothing
Mission accomplished, but not without the help of my boyfriend. He reminded me that sometimes we need to take time off to be our best selves, so that’s exactly what we did the last weekend of May. I read a book all day on Saturday, and we had a fun night making pizza and play board games. I’m going to make sure we keep doing things like that moving forward.
two | buy fresh flowers for my apartment
Done! I didn’t make it to the adorable flower shop, but I did pick up a fresh bouquet from Trader Joe’s, and that’s just as good, right?
three | read six books
The only book I didn’t finish in May was Legendborn (and I finished in the first few days of June). I read seven books in all! Read all about them in my May reading wrap up.
four | get back to reading the Bible
Unfortunately, I didn’t start reading the Bible again, but I did get to an in-person church service which was really nice! Hopefully, I’ll start reading the Bible again in June.
June 2021 Goals
one | read six books
The TBR this month? Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo, No Exit by Taylor Adams, Kingdom of Flesh and Fire by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Set Boundaries, Find Peace by Nedra Glover Tawwab, and two random books of my choice.
two | take a hike
The weather has been truly beautiful in Nashville, and I’d love to check out a new hike sometime this month. Nothing crazy, but a fun waterfall might be nice.
three | run three times a week
I’ve been attempting to train for a 5K since college, and it is finally time I do this thing! I have no excuses other than wanting to sleep in a little more in the mornings, so I’m committing myself to running at least three times a week whether that’s in the morning, the evening, or my lunch break, I’m going to make it happen.
four | go thrift shopping
I love a good jean jacket, and I’d love to thrift a few and decorate them with patches and distressing. Definitely making this an action item for June.
