It's crazy how quickly time passes when you're having fun or when you're so busy that you forget to shower for days. Either/or.
I'm not going to lie, you guys. I was absolutely not ready for July.
When I walked into the month I didn't expect to completely re-evaluate my life. But alas, that's what July had in store for me.
A little backstory-- on July 4th I finally confessed to myself and everyone around me that my current business model wasn't working for me and that I was interested in changing it. I was overworked, underpaid and I needed a break all around. I began looking for part time jobs, full time jobs, and everything in between. I got a bunch of interviews, all of them for full time jobs, and all of them very promising. Then I realized that that's not at all what I wanted.
I just needed a break. I needed to breathe. I needed to figure myself out for a second.
The financial burden of being self employed is a hard weight to carry. Coupling that with feelings in general can sometimes feel like too much. If you feel that, know you're not alone.
I told all of the full time job prospects that I wanted to withdraw my application.
And then I got a great part time job doing social media for a cross stitch company out of Utah. I'm feeling a bit more free + I'm excited for August!
Enough about that, you're here for GOALS!
Here's how my goals went for July:
1) Get a haircut & evaluate my wardrobe.
Y'all I chopped it. My hair is gone! Success!
2) Go to an exercise class that's out of my comfort zone.
While I didn't attend a class, I did ride a bicycle all over downtown Austin this past weekend and it was definitely not as easy as I thought it would be. Thank God for pedal assist bikes!
3) Evaluate my portfolio.
Did it. Also evaluated my entire career. So it goes...
4) Open a business bank account.
Did it! Couldn't be more excited about it either!
5) Celebrate my 4 year anniversary!
We went tubing down the river and it was absolutely perfect!
So what's in store for August? Well... I'm so glad you asked!
1) Stick to a monthly budget.
2) Makeover our bedroom.
3) Bake a cobbler.
4) Go to 10 classes at the YMCA.
5) Plan a vacation.
