November Goals


Hi friends ♥️

I'm sharing these goals mostly for myself, but I want to put it somewhere public for accountability. I hope it encourages you to think about the things you hope to accomplish this November! This is a small list for two reasons: 1) I don't want to overwhelm myself with too much, and 2) I need to focus in on what's important.

monthly

FINALIZE THE WEDDING GUEST LIST + COLLECT ALL EMAIL ADDRESSES
We have a pretty good draft of who we'd like to attend and we know our maximum count (250 guests) but our list doesn't include our parents' guests yet — we're still trying to make room for them!

GIVE BRIDESMAIDS' "PROPOSAL" GIFTS
I know my girls will be excited to join me even if I just write them a card, but I want to do something extra for them. I've been going back and forth with a couple of ideas for a long time now, so I'm committing to get it done this month.

PLAN MONTHLY BUDGET
I've never had to do this because I'm generally okay at saving my money, but spending it wisely is entirely different. I'll have many payments to make in the upcoming year, with the wedding (and maybe a car!) so I want to tackle this before things get busy.

PREPARE GIFT IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS
I am probably the first to admit that I *always* buy gifts at the last minute. And I hate it! It's a habit I have to break if I want to love my friends well.

weekly

JOURNAL PRAYERS AT LEAST TWICE A WEEK
Prayer requires a still mind, and that is one of the most difficult things for me. I always want to be doing something. But sitting down and writing out my thoughts as a reminder has been incredibly helpful, and it is always a blessing to look back and see how God has answered each request/hope/cry.

STUDY SCRIPTURE BY STARTING ABIDE BY JEN WILKIN
Goals: Work through the homework and listen to the corresponding podcast!

READ SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES FOR THE CHRISTIAN LIFE BY DONALD S. WHITNEY
We only discuss one chapter each month in my community group, but I'd really love to finish the book in December. It should work out if I tackle one chapter each week!

daily

PRACTICE GRATITUDE THROUGH CRAFTING
I won't be able to work on this every single day this month, but I'm going to try and spend at least 3-4 days each week putting my journal together. It's going to be a small challenge because I don't have easy access to print photos, so I'm digging through my old photos that didn't make it in my Project Life album.

🖤🖤🖤

If you are up to it, please share your November goals with me! I love hearing your thoughts.
