2014 goals review / things to accomplish in May

Maybe it’s because it’s a little late or maybe it’s because I tend to be a chronic optimist, but I just re-read my 2014 goals set in January and thought I wasn’t doing too bad. Now if I read April’s specific list it looks like I failed completely. But I’m happy and thankful for the big picture progress that is going on.

Yes, there are things that are being completely missed or fallen behind on, but honestly, the things that really have come to matter in the last four months are being improved.

Hooray!

Overall, I’m so happy with this plan of setting goals and checking back in with them monthly.

That being said, and also seeing that I am a good week into this month already, I’m not going to go back and rehash what was good and bad from April. It would be rather redundant from what I have written the other months. (see here, here, and here)

I’m simply going to look forward to May. And guess what? That isn’t all that complicated either.

Two major things need to happen this month from what I can tell in my human understanding.

1. My husband needs to graduate from seminary. And I need to celebrate and relish this long-worked for time and tell him how much I love him and am proud of him and let it be the completely big deal that it is.

2. We need to finish our last four weeks of homeschooling.

Add, to that the priorities I wrote about in January {rejoice; give thanks; love Paul with kindness and affection; love the girlies with time, teaching, and discipline; make meals; do laundry} and May is set.

Literally.

There’s no point in listing anything else out because I’m pretty sure everything I just mentioned will consume the month.

As I re-read my original list from January, one resolution stuck out to me.

To simplify; to focus on the responsibilities and joys that will not remain after this stage of life.

If ever there was a time to let this be true, May is the month.

Do I already have a lengthy mental list going for June? Oh yes!

But thankfully we’re not there yet.

Four months down, eight to go.
