hello, September.

Hello, September.  I am ecstatic to see you.  August was pretty good to me, but I have a feeling September is going to be even better.

This month instead of my usual goals, I’m aiming for three things in all areas: self-discipline, peace, and love.

Self-discipline in health by cutting down that sugar (August meant lots of wedding/birthday/because it’s Saturday cupcakes). Self-discipline in a project I’m working on by creating a schedule and sticking to it. This month I am going to attack some hard things, and I am actually looking forward to them.

I’m creating space for peace, starting with cutting the podcasts from my morning walks (*the horror*). I need some silent space for breathing and talking with the Lord, and an hour long walk in the morning seems like a great start.

Love in that I want to stop and listen. I want to really look people in the eyes as they are talking, from the grocery store cashier to my husband.

September, we are going to have a great time, I think.

What are you hoping for this month? Any words or specific areas you want to grow in?
