July… New Month, New Start… Right?

Hello everyone and happy July to you all ❀

Wow, it’s already July. Where did all the year go? Time is running so fast and I barely can catch up. My month started out already with tons of things to do for my mom, for myself and lots more. My calendar looks too colorful, even for me, hehe πŸ˜€ I love the start of a month, everything feels fresh and there’s a feeling in the air that everything is possible.

As a new month comes, I sit down, reflect on the previous month and think of all the things I want to achieve this month, especially when I didn’t do so good with my June goals. I want to start posting these posts again, to keep myself accountable… So feel free to ask me how my goals are doing any time you want ❀

Here are my July goals


Write at least 5K (it’s not much but it’s something) πŸ˜‰

Finish outlining.

Edit 2 chapters (editing is a real struggle for me, hehe).

Blog twice a week (This month is too hectic so I will post only twice a week. Scheduling is almost done, yay).

Finish formatting my new Bi-monthly newsletter (going out in August, so don’t miss it).

Social Media

Post more on my social media (talking about struggle, lol).


Organize my mom’s medical papers (this is very urgent and I’m procrastinating on this every day).


Keep the house clean and organized every day (new evening routine).


Drink more water πŸ˜€ (I know, I know… but I am doing better with this goal, even got a new cute water bottle).

Make time for a full half an hour of self-care once a week ❀ (Like mani-pedi, facial mask and just a bit of pampering).

Go back to walking or elliptical.


What is a hobby? lol, It’s been so long. But seriously, I would love to return to my junk journal at least once a month πŸ˜€

Also, I want to get back to my reading. My TBR pile is growing fast and after a huge reading-slump, I am starting to get out of it so I hope to read more. My goal is to read 3 books this month.

What goal are you hoping to achieve this month?

Let me know

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀

    1. Thank you so much ❀ I am so sorry you are going such a hard time and I do hope it will get easier. Setting goals do help, it keeps the mind clear of what you truly want πŸ˜€

  2. You’ve set yourself some ambitious goals. Good luck with them. πŸ™‚ I do the same thing. But my main goal this month is to get most of the second draft of my WIP written/edited. :/

    1. A break sounds perfect right now ❀ πŸ˜€ I did that too until I had to take care of my mom with her health and then everything became scheduled. hehe.


  3. I love these goals, especially the self-care! It’s such an important one! You have also reminded me to drink more water too, I always forget! Good luck with your goals and hope you achieve everything you want to! πŸ’– xx

  4. I’ve never thought of setting goals for myself. This is such a good idea. I hope you accomplish all your goals for this month 😊

    1. I have a friend that never sets goals, she only know what she want in general and how she wants to get there. I am a very list oriented and I love many types of list, so naturally I love lists about goals.
      LOL My dog just sneezed all over, lol (sorry, but I can’t stop laughing) πŸ˜€


      1. Lol. I think your friend and I are almost the same when it comes to that. I’ll have a to-do list and grocery list but that’s about it. πŸ˜…

  5. Good luck with your July goals, I feel your pain over medical notes, I do a lot of this with my son and it soon gets overwhelming, I have a pocket file with sections for each department/area now that I can at least file it in some order even if I’m busy. X

    1. Thank you so much πŸ™‚
      I am sorry that your son is in need for doctors, I do hope he will feel tons better fast.
      It’s gets overwhelming fast, yeah I do that as well and now I am working (slowly, lol) on scanning all her medical papers and I want to put in my dropbox. We even carry a file holder with many papers which I named Bobby, hehe (he comes with us everywhere, lol, so I had to name it)…. Oversharing?

  6. First let me say I love the color coding!!! This was a great post, very aware of what needs to be done. My goal is to be half as organized πŸ‘ŒπŸΎ

  7. Galit, good luck on achieving your July goals. I’m working on a goal to finish a first draft by the end of summer. So, word count every day! It keeps me writing everyday. I’m retired and totally free to accomplish this. Let β€˜s see if this announcement helps. πŸ“š Christine

    1. Thank you so much ❀ 15K is very doable. I’ve set this month goals so low due to many doctors appointments I need to go for my mom. I really hope you reach your goal πŸ˜€
