Ya'll, the fall vibes are here and I can finally set them free! It's time to pull out the pumpkins and sweaters, and spices for our coffee! I'm so ready. I truly love summer, and I will be sad to see it go, but I'm ready for the cozy to return!
1// FIND PORTCH FURNITURE
Since it will be getting cold soon, I'm hoping that the porch furniture will go on sale and I can snag some good times for cheap!
2// TAKE A DAY TO GO OUT AND TAKE PICTURES
I really do love photography, like so many of us do. But I feel nervous going out in public with my camera, which makes no sense because so many do it already, but it's something I want to get over. I want to take a day and drive to locations specifically for photography!
3// ESCAPE FOR THE WEEKEND
I've been wanting to go to either Portland or Seattle with one of my friends and I want it to be this month! Even a small weekend trip to explore sounds wonderful!
4// ORGANIZE MY BOOKSHELF
I got one from Ikea specifically because I can add some contact paper to it and have it look like what I want! Or maybe use wood pieces and drill those to the shelves for some dimension, not sure yet! I just need to actually take the time to do that.
5// CONTINUE TO GIVE MYSELF RESOURCES
I'm going to talk more in-depth about this in a later post, but in August I realized I was falling into an incorrect mindset. I want to keep on the path I'm on now!
UPDATE! Check out the post HERE!
6// TIGHTEN UP MY BUDGET
I remember back in school, when I would feel so expensive when I bought actual brands as opposed to the store brand! I kind of miss that Joy, she really knew how to save and budget. Since having a "real job" I've gotten more loose with my money. I want to get a little closer to that Joy excited about the real brands and save that difference for my future! Take myself more seriously! If nothing changes, nothing changes.
7// FOCUS ON THE RIGHT QUESTIONS
When something happens at work or in my personal life, I want to make sure I'm focusing on the real issue. The other day I had someone angry with me at work, but I knew that they were going through something in their life that was the real cause of their frustration. Focusing on the real problem helped me to stay calm and work through what was happening. Sometimes when someone is frustrated it has nothing to do with that particular situation. It's hard in those emotionally charged moments, but I want to make sure I'm focusing on what is really happening in others lives and in my own life.
8// COZY UP MY HOME FOR FALL
It's that time of year and I'm ready! time for the pumpkin everything! If you don't like pumpkin and fall things, I'm sorry! but also, not sorry! I'm Demi Lovato in fall form. (If you haven't heard that song, just ignore me)
9// CHANGE THE OIL IN MY CAR
It's that time again. Exciting goal I know! Try to contain yourself with excitement for me.
10// SEE THE ASPENS
Around this time of year the Aspen trees in the mountains start to turn a golden color and it looks beautiful! They've started a little early this year so some of them have already changed. I want to see them :)
What are your goals for this first Fall Month?
