Fall Goals

i cannot even begin to believe that it is october.  where did september go?  wasn't it just summer?  it's been unseasonably warm here (like, we're still having 80-degree weeks) and i just said to a coworker that i'm so ready for cute fall outfits!

but first, fall goals!  i started doing seasonal goals this summer and i really liked how it felt...it made me feel like my goals were manageable and i was actually able to accomplish some things!  some of these goals are repeats from summer...things i want to continue working on, but others are brand new!

by "community", i mean goals that i have for spending time with or doing things with or for other people…
take at least one more weekend trip to boston
schedule intentional time with friends
send a lot of snail mail!
plan some fun community-oriented things for the peony project
be an encourager
spend a lot of time with family

my personal goals revolve around things i need to do for me
finish reading let's all be brave and read two more books
take time each week to sit at a coffee shop and write/blog
hang a few prints on my walls
clean out and rearrange my room
save money like crazy
take weekly "me" time
book a few more photoshoots

wellness goals include things that are health and fitness related...
run a half marathon (yep, still working on this one)
eat better
vary my workouts...lots of running, but other fun things too!
drink lots of fresh juice (and complete my juice cleanse!)
get an appropriate amount of sleep...go to bed at a decent time

what are your goals for this fall?


  1. I love your goal categories and after reading any of your books this month if you'd recommend them please let me know! I'm always looking for good reads :)

  2. Writing in a coffee shop is my favorite!

  3. I love "be an encourager"-- such a great goal, Betsy! But seriously, you're already so good at it:)

  4. I love this post and agree with Daisy - "Be an encourager" is a really great goal. Everyone can use an encourager in their life. And also agree that you are good at that! I wish we had a little coffee shop (other than starbucks) around here. Nothing wrong with Starbucks, but I love the charm of little coffee shops that aren't chains.

  5. I think you've already nailed the community goals! But these are all great ones! Just have to say...so glad I've met you...can't wait to hug you in real life!! :)

  6. I want to do a half marathon. I love all your goals and how you have them broken up too.

  7. thanks Jessa! I feel like they're easier to manage when they're broken up!

  8. Awe, thanks Amy! I totally feel the same way about you! Can't wait til next September!!

  9. Thanks!! It really is...and I definitely don't schedule enough of it!
