BuJo July

I’ve got very off track with my journaling over the last two months. This is good, as it means I don’t need a schedule of activities to keep me motivated, also it means I don’t need to offload my deepest darkest thoughts onto paper.

My June goals were readily cast aside when I decided that publishing my book was my top priority. The weather has also played a part in my abject failure(!) to meet my goals. But I don’t care!

It’s ok that another month has passed and these things are outstanding (piano, knitting, cycling). Because what I have done, I’ve done well.

  • I’ve published a book
  • I’ve done lots of running, including parkrun
  • I’ve joined the volunteer rota for parkrun
  • I’ve joined-ish running club (unofficially)
  • I’ve written poetry
  • I’ve registered as self-employed for tax purposes
  • I’ve been part of a huge community production (with my band)
  • I’ve been mostly vegetarian – not a goal as such
  • I’ve grown my own veg – chard, beetroot, sugar snap peas, tomatoes
  • I’ve kept our visiting hedgehog fed and watered
  • I’ve started my second book of poetry

There may be other stuff I’ve overlooked, but that’s a great list for someone who has failed to meet the goals she set herself!

I’m not sure what direction my journaling will take now my mood is settled and I’m more content with life but in anticipation of there being some kind of journaling activity, I did my July cover page last night and am pleased to say that the quotes I’ve included are my own words.

      Lol šŸ˜‚
      I haven’t touched my knitting or done any piano practice, I haven’t been cooking properly, I haven’t cleaned the house or done any ironing. It’s all about priorities! šŸ˜
