I Am A Little Lost This Month.

October’s Reflection & November’s Goals

It’s the beginning of a new month which means that it is time to stop, reflect, and sometimes make a few changes. A practice that has proven to help me focus and plan ahead.

I actually started these reflections a year ago!! I look forward to writing them each month. (Well, it’s really been a year and one month since I started this series. However, September was the first month I didn’t write a reflection for due to losing my first baby at the end of the month. It was the only month that I have ever missed.)

Monthly Reflections

I usually try to keep the tone uplifting while still being extremely honest with where I am at in my writing and life.

My goal is the same with this reflection, but to be honest, I am feeling a little lost. So, it’s hard to sound super chirpy and motivated for the month ahead.

In October, my focus was on healing and family.

I had taken a couple weeks off of writing after losing my first baby.

Once I finally came back on here, my schedule got busier.

I went home during the week earlier this month. Then, my husband and I went on a weekend getaway. The very next weekend, we had to travel home for a wedding.

Every time I felt more caught up on here, I got behind again.

I wrote about how much I wanted to catch up, because I was flooded with an overwhelming amount of genuine kindness from so many. I wanted to be back on here regularly so bad. However, I am so thankful that I was able and blessed enough to be so busy with traveling. Being surrounded by family and enjoying time with my husband was exactly what I have needed.
