Quest for Discovery

Quest for Discovery: Week Thirty One

Hello, friends!

Last week was a pretty awesome mini-break. My friend came in town and I hadn’t seen her in years, so it was wonderful to catch up and show her the little special places that make my home…well, home, I guess. And as we come into August, now, it’s going to be a whirlwind of a time. Though I’m excited for everything that’s planned, it’s also going to be busy and I’m already looking forward to September, where hopefully things will calm down a bit. I’ll definitely have to work on being forgiving this month, in terms of goals, but I also don’t want to ignore them completely. It’s all about balancing (but then again, when isn’t it?).

Long-Term Goal: Write two new books and edit two books. Enter the query trenches.

Last Week’s Goal: No goal for this week.

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. With how busy everything has been, editing hasn’t been able to take a priority. I’m hoping to still make steady progress on editing this novel, though, even if it isn’t as much as I want to be.

Weekly Goal: Edit two-three chapters this week.

Long-Term Goal: Read every day, finishing up some old series and keeping up with new ones.

Last Week’s Goal: No goal for this week.

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. Started reading King of Assassins last week and wow, is this book already fantastic and I’m only 100 pages in. Hoping to knock this book out this week and try and actually get all my August ARCs read in a timely(ish) manner.

Weekly Goal: Finish book, write review and stay ahead on August ARCs.

Long-Term Goal: Continue living a healthy lifestyle and shaping a body I love and am proud of.

Last Week’s Goal: No goal for this week.

Status: Affirmative, Commander. Really need to get back on the groove with this one. Blog post upcoming this week (hopefully) to talk about this.

Weekly Goal: Log food honestly, get back to my lifestyle roots and workout 4x.

Long-Term Goal: Learn to have a healthy relationship with money and build my savings.

Weekly Goal: Pay bills for next month.

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander.

Weekly Goal: Reevaluate new budget and be frugal.

Long-Term Goal: Reconnect with God and grow personally to live more like Jesus.

Last Week’s Goal: No goal for this week.

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. Need to figure out a good time to try and do this each day. I might try and do it first thing in the mornings, perhaps? But definitely want to start reading this more.

Weekly Goal: 5x.

Carpe Diem
Long-Term Goal: Find a reason to smile every day and something to get excited about weekly. 

Last Week’s Goal: The only goal I’m focusing on this week: have a blast with my friend in town!

  • Status: Affirmative, Commander. Absolutely crushed it.

Weekly Goal: Enjoy the busyness that begins for the entire second half of the year, definitely starting with August!


I’ll be writing a blog post this week, I hope, about trying to refocus on my goals and getting back into the swing of things. It’s not that I did particularly poorly over the summer, but I think I lost a little bit of focus that I wouldn’t mind getting back. Plus, I haven’t been blogging on this blog nearly as much as I want to and I miss that. Hopefully I can sneak in more posts this week and get back to blogging regularly!

Hope you all have a wonderful, productive and amazing first week of August!
