Gotta Get a Goal

I've finally figured ME out . . . apparently I can't accomplish anything without setting an official goal.

A few months ago, I set out to participate in Blood Water Mission's 40 Days of Water -- spent all of Lent drinking only tap water.  But since then I've gone back to sucking down buckets of Diet Dr. Pepper and sweet tea.  Another case in point:  I just finished eight weeks of training for the recent Mud Run.  We raced last Saturday, and since then, my workout has consisted of watching Parks and Rec on Netflix and consuming large amounts of leftover Easter candy.  It's really just sad.

So I'm getting back on the workout and water wagon, plus setting a goal for the summer.  It's a songwriting goal, and I'm hoping to record and share it during the process.  Summer gets pretty crazy for us around here.  All the kids are out of school, activities abound, and finding some quiet time to get my head clear and write can be a challenge. But, I've recently been inspired by some other artist friends who are fiercely dedicated to honing their craft even in the most chaotic of times.  I want to join their ranks.  Yep, it's time to get a goal!

Yay!  I feel empowered already.  Details soon.  :)

Do you have a creative goal for the upcoming summer?  Why not share it, too?  Blessings!
