My head has been all over the place this week. Nothing particularly bad happened to me personally (although I think all Canadians felt the horror of what took place on Parliament Hill on Wednesday). I think it’s just that I’ve been brainstorming and coming up with so many different ideas/projects/topics over the last few months, and now that I’m finally finally home from all my trips and have some free time, I’m lost on how to prioritize them all. Tonight and tomorrow, I’m going to do a massive mind dump and throw everything down on paper, so I can figure out which projects most align with my vision/values and go from there.
One thing I do know for certain is that this will be the last TGIF post (in this format) for the next 5 weeks. Next Friday, I’m going to post my updated October budget and goals, so we can start November off right – it will be Financial Literacy Month, after all! There are so many topics I want to cover in November, as 2014 winds down, and the holidays and a new year are just around the corner. But I also want to have some fun, which is why I’m going to host a giveaway every Friday throughout the month of November! There are four things I’m dying to giveaway (and no, it’s not useless clutter that’s been sitting around my place), so come back every week to put your name in the hat for each one!
The low of my week was a mix of dealing with some side effects from the flu shot (got one for the first time in 6+ years), and feeling some serious pain in my low back/right hip and not being able to get an appointment with my RMT until next week. My body just wasn’t happy, I guess!
The high of my week was my Mastermind meeting on Wednesday. I freaking love my group.
A blog post I loved was Are You Ready to Simplify Your Life? “Ultimately, simplifying your life comes down to choosing to think a little differently about things. It means not getting caught up in what someone else says is important, as stated above. It also means being able to do you, whatever that means.”
The best money I spent was $8 on dessert, after dinner with Sarah on Monday – even if I did have to eat it with my hands, lol.
My plans this weekend include having a daylong planning session with Sarah tomorrow, going for an early morning hike with my friend Tanya on Sunday, then Skyping with Gail and hanging out with David (finally!). I think I’m also going to make this curried vegetable + chickpea stew. Mmm…
How was your week, friends? What are you up to this weekend?
