Overall, I think I did a pretty good job with the summer. While three goals are incomplete, it was a wonderful summer and I don’t regret a thing (except maybe all of that work I was still doing in June.) I learned and grew and I’m returning to school emotionally and mentally refreshed.
I’m really great at setting idealistic goals and then being seriously disappointed when I get to the end of a break and I don’t achieve those goals. And it’s usually not for lack of trying. My husband likes to call them my “Sarahntees,” well-intentioned “promises” of things that I really want to see take place, but life gets in the way or the goal takes significantly longer than I intended which means I have to either put other, smaller tasks to the side or scrap the bigger idea for something less complicated.
