Today I am writing about something that may seem only tangentially related to my themes for the year, but it actually ties into several of them. I want to talk a little bit about battling with feelings of shame when you backslide in one area or another, especially living in a culture that is obsessed with productivity and progress. It can feel so discouraging to experience a regression of any sort, and no one really wants to talk about that stuff, which is why I feel like it is really important to talk about my own struggles with the backslides I have had this year.

September Recap and October Goals
I love that we are getting into hiking season and cooler weather here in Phoenix! It is also Powersheets launch day!!! This always fills me with a little bit of hope that life goes on and reassures me that I’ll have a nice little personal retreat to reflect on priorities and what I want for the new year. If you want to go through Powersheets with me next year, you can order them HERE.
(The tending lists in the Powerhseets are more or less what shows up here in my monthly goal/recap posts but the magic of this tool is in the prep work and reflecting on what you want your big picture goals to be and why!)
November Goals and October Re-Cap! (POWERSHEETS ARE HERE! )

Here’s a quick recap of how my October goals went as well as what’s on my tending list for November. Continue reading

Happy August! Adjusting goals after my social media fast…
After a month of no new posts and only checking in more or less once a week on comments and social media sites, I am so excited to get back to blogging and to be more intentional about my time online and on my phone. I have a post I’ve been waiting months to share that will go live later this week, so keep an eye out, but in the meantime I’m ready to recap a bit of last month and talk about some new goals and focuses for this month: Continue reading
2017: How I’m doing on my goals 6 months in- and plans for the second half of the year!
So I am definitely in that weird time flux of having a baby again and feeling like everything is going so fast and so slow all at once. On the one hand I can’t believe how much has happened in the last six months. It feels like much more time should have passed for all this to be possible. On the other I feel like it has been a complete whirlwind and I’m going to blink and it will be December. I’m guessing at least some of you feel the same! I just filled out my Powersheets for the month of July and before jumping into a few things there I wanted to celebrate some of the little by little progress that’s happened during the first half of the year… Continue reading
Year End Wrap Up: Creating
After finishing up Macbeth earlier this year, and having a lot of health problems that kept me home once I got pregnant, I was worried my creative outlets might dry up. But where God closes a door he truly opens a window… or perhaps several! So it seems fitting to wrap up this year with a very handmade christmas! Continue reading
Year End Wrap Up: Chronicling
If I were to pick one category where I was most successful this year, it would have to be chronicling. This is where daily and weekly habits came together with big extra pushes throughout the year to make some serious progress. Continue reading
