3 in 30: May Goals

3in30 I'm In!!
May goals have escaped me thus many things I want to list, I've just gone without listing any.  After a great 4 months of 3 in 30ing, I feel I'm just one month away (always) from inevitable failure. 
What if I pick unachievable goals?  What if life gets in the way?  What if....?
Just being honest.
However, nine days in, I'm ready to list my goals.  I'm ready to face this month with a defined purpose.  Last week hasn't been without focus...I continued April's goals into May...and brought in a few things from previous months as well, but I'm ready for something new to work toward.
So, without further adieu....I present to you my May goals. 
Drum roll, please.
1. Clean out junk drawers.  Yes, we have more than one...and, yes, I want to tackle them all. (What am I thinking???)
2. Go through boys' clothes to figure out what fits, what they still like, what we need for the summer months, etc.
3. Part 3 of 3 for the Proverbs 31 goals comes from verse 20..."Her hands reach out to the poor, and she extends her hands to the needy."  I'm not confining myself to the direct definition of "poor" and "needy"...there are other ways "poor" and "needy" can be defined aside from financial means.  However, with so many tornado victims and (and soon to be flood victims), reaching out to the needy is just a few minutes drive from the house.

Time to get busy!  I've got some goals to reach before my birthday on the 31st!


  1. Janet Rose, those are great goals! I admire your courage in braving the junk drawers and I love how you are choosing goals based on Proverbs 31.

  2. I agree, you have great goals. You can do it. I also have to say that I love your willingness to set things aside and go help tornado victims. My home town was hit almost a year ago and the flood of people helping to pick up the pieces (literally) was amazing!

  3. Those are great goals! How wonderful that you are able to help those in need.

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
