Reviewed My 2014 February, March, and April Goals

Again, sorry I’ve been MIA the past two months, its all been for good reason!

Firstly, I want to review my progress on my monthly goals:

February: Focusing on my personal relationships. I accomplished this by traveling to FL and AZ to visit each of my parents. This went very well, and we spent memorable days together. I can’t wait to share more about those traveling adventures!


March: As a pun on the month of March, March was to focus on being disciplined. As soon as I returned home from my cross country travels I began to apply for jobs. I attempted to organize things at the apartment, etc. Honestly, I became more and more frustrated by what I was not accomplishing. Instead of being a month of productivity, it became a month about self acceptance. I realized that I could either continue to guilt and punish myself for what I was not accomplishing, or I could forgive myself, move on, and try to be more productive the next day. It was a very important lesson to learn.

April: A specific post to follow about this new development, but I began my counseling career! Thus, April’s only goal became about surviving a 40 hour work week, in a new job experience. Learning to be patient with myself in March really paid off in April, with a refreshed attitude of patience towards my progress.

My goal for May is really similar for that of April, but instead of surviving my position, I really want to learn how to thrive :0) April showers bring May flowers?

According to my research its the closest zoo that offers penguin experiences/encounters. (And just $45 for a cheek to beak experience). I’d already lost my heart at one experience with Busch/Seaworld, but I wanted to see the penguins at one of [...]
  • Rescued Penguins For My Birthday I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that [...]
  • Ranted about the “Me Before You... Guys, why do we (especially the Christian conservatives) freak out about EVERY new book (but more so when its made into a movie) that comes out with an agenda that doesn’t quite match God’s standards?

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
