Personal Goals – April 2008

1 April 2008

Self portrait Hi everyone! It’s the start of a brand new month! How’s everyone doing with their personal goals and resolutions for the year?

> I’ve signed up for a social netball team, with some other mums from my son’s class. The last time I played netball was in 2000. It starts next term! I’m excited!

> My Chinese lessons are not going as fast as I had hoped. I have been following a DVD for children, and I can say, “Hello little friend! Let’s play together!

Admittedly the other day, I was wearing a rather low-cut top, and I was introduced to a group of young business men from China. I was about to blurt out the very little Chinese I knew – with perfect inflection and much pride – but I suddenly realised that it might not go down too well.

(OK. I exaggerate. I can count to ten and I know a few colours.)

> My book project has kept me fairly busy. I’m trying to start another personal writing project, but argh, not enough time during the day.

> Last month I read 3 books, and half way through another one.

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
The Kite Runner By Khaled Hosseini
The Memory Keeper’s Daughter by Kim Edwards

This month I need to focus on a few things :

> TO RELAX. I’ve been very tense these last few weeks. I’ve got a lot on my plate. Can’t seem to wade through the to-do’s in a graceful manner.

I mentioned in my post about “Making Baby 3 – The STRESS Factor” that I might getting all stressed out about trying NOT to be stressed!

> I have to learn the art of prioritising.

> We have my son’s 5th birthday coming up. Plus the school holidays are approaching.

> Need to do some swimming.

Hmmm. Can’t think of anything else. What are your goals this month?
