October Goals

october goals //stephanieorefice.net

It’s been a LONG TIME since I’ve done monthly goals. I mean, it’s been like… forever.

As I was wading through all the feelings I had this spring/summer, sometimes it felt like a monthly goal was just GET THROUGH THIS. and that’s depressing, and I try to avoid using the internet as a form of self-pity.

To quote Tangled, “it’s like the fog has lifted,” and I am ready to be back on this. I already posted my FINANCIAL goals for October, but these are the other things. I’m weirdly excited about this.


  • send 10 letters
  • achieve my financial goals
  • complete Whole30
  • finish reading through Job in the OT
  • declutter the space by my bed
  • read the rest of Penguins and Golden Calves


Do you guys have any goals for this month?

    Goal setting makes me happy! I got out of the habit over the summer but making more of an effort now that it’s fall. I like your thought of focusing on decluttering one specific area, it makes it seem so much more manageable than simply ‘declutter’. Good luck with your goals! 🙂

      thanks, donna! i used to make big giant unrealistic lists and then i’d feel like crap when i didn’t accomplish any of it. so now i like to keep it real, haha. i also feel like with the days getting shorter, i really need to be intentional about my time, you know?

    Ohhh yes I like seeing your before and after decluttering posts and I assume there will be one for the space by your bed?! They make me happy.

      heck yeah there will be! though i realized that it’s more of like… “it was messy and now it’s not,” because there’s not much room for clutter in that area, haha.

    My goals are to do my homework for my Precepts of Daniel class on time, get back into meal planning, and stay on top of our budget. Especially since we have a floater check this month.

      what is a precepts of daniel class? you’ve mentioned it before and i’m intrigued! how is it all going so far?

      • October 6, 2015 / 2:42 pm

        It’s an inductive Bible study, apparently it’s been around for a while. It’s more in depth than a “regular” study. I’ve read chapter one of Daniel about twenty times now, it seems and we’ve only had four classes!

    Cheering you on through the end of Whole30! You’re going to do great!

    • October 6, 2015 / 10:46 am

      YAY!!!! thank you so very much!!! 😀

    So nice that you are going to focus on snail mail too! Would totally do that if I had more time 🙂

    • October 6, 2015 / 11:11 am

    I’m so glad to see you link up with me! I love your goal to “send 10 cards”! It will be fun to see who you send to.
