My October List

So far this month, I have had a great time both mentally and physically. I learned how to face rejection, and since then, I am having a positive approach when conducting a job search. Below, I share my October intentions, the things I am excited about, and looking forward to.

October Intentions 

  • Sleep longer on the weekends. I do not remember when I last had a long morning, and I kind of miss it. 
  • Do something great every day for myself that makes me feel good. 
  • Go for a walk in nature and enjoy the beauty of fall.
  • Clean the back yard, which is getting flooded with all the leaves falling from the trees.
  • Rope skipping – It is over two months now since I last did it. I do not plan to go all crazy, but skipping 10 mins will be a good start.
  • Read two books – I Am halfway through EAT, LOVE, PRAY by Elizabeth Gilbert, and I hope to start a new book by the end of the month. 

I am excited about

  • Fall vacation – I’m not having a break, but the boys do. However, I will try to create time mostly in the afternoons for some family fun activities. 
  • Acrylic pour painting – I tried pouring painting last month, but it failed. I have bought the right paint, and I will give it another try.

I am looking forward to 

  • Go through my sweaters one more time and see if I can get rid of a few more. 
  • Wear my new boots. I was in town the other day and came across some super cute ankle boots on sale. I grabbed them ASAP!
  • Get used to wearing business casual outfits.  I cleaned my closet and collected a few pieces that I cannot wait to incorporate into my daily outfits. 
  • To hang out with my mommy group. I have not seen them in a while, and I am sure Leo will love catching up with his friends, as I will do with the other moms.

I have mixed emotions about

  • Christmas decorations up already. It is always a reminder that I am spending another Christmas away from my family. Lately, it arouses some mixed emotions. I find myself getting excited to be with my small family during the holiday season. On the other side, knowing that I can’t experience Christmas in Kenya makes me a little sad. However, I am learning to deal with these emotions accordingly.
