Creating Balance & July Goals

I've discovered that I've become a disorganized mess! Yes, it's true. Many people think I'm organized but I'm not. It's been my personal experience that when I simplify my life, it's easier to create balance and structure. I have a hard time seeing past the surrounding and mental clutter. Maybe that's why I don't like a cluttered house. I like things neat and tidy. Less is more.

So, I've set some July goals for myself. Not too much, but a list I feel that I can complete with ease. Of course the plan is to excel further but if I don't, then at least I've accomplished what I set out to do.

My July Goals (the ones I don't mind making public)

Lose 7 pounds
Exercise 4 days a week
Drink more water
Back to SparkPeople (it really helps me stay on track)

Personal/Home Goals
Reorganize my craft closet (not bad, should be easy)
Keep up with my personal journal, 4+ days a week

Blog & Business
1 New tutorial for my blog
Add 4 new Zazzle items
Begin working on patterns

So there! That doesn't sound to threatening. I'll post my SUCCESS at the end of July.

  1. Ah, the elusive "Balance". =) I think it's a lifelong pursuit for most of us, so you're not alone! Sounds like a great plan.

  2. Good luck this month! I think putting your goals in writing is a great way to start.

  3. Good luck with your goals! My hubby says the first thing to do is to write them down... I just have so much trouble with that!!

  4. That is SO me... people think I'm organized but I'm not. Or maybe I am, but not in the way I would like to be... can't wait to see how you do with your goals! Orangies Attic

  5. I'm very organized at work and for some reason I just can't get it together at home lately. I think too much blog time has something to do with it...lol
    I've been wanting to simplify around here but just never seem to squeeze it in.
    Good luck with your goals.

  6. Oh that balance thing! I think your idea to write down monthly goals would help me tremendously. Of cousrse the first step is writing them down...

  7. Best Wishes with balancing out the yin and yang of your life in July. Thanks for your kind words at my blog. Yes, I can tell you like whimsical cats. Your feline avatar is so cool! Love your digital scrapbooking images, though don't do scrapbooking, but if I did your images would be a blast to play with.
