Welcome to the first Monday of setting goals at Chronic Connection!
This week I want to focus on getting what I need for my husband to help me create some beautiful little gardens, bursting with color!
Before I got sick, the gardens were mostly my project. Since then, the way we have worked it out is that I choose the flowers I want planted, and decide where they are going to go, and hubby does the physical work for me 🙂 He’s such an awesome guy!
Yesterday, he worked so hard on digging out the weeds, cleaning up the flower beds, and getting them ready for planting. While he was busy doing that, I took advantage of the fact that I was having a half decent day, and went looking around the garden center to get an idea of what we might like to plant this year.
This week, my goals are:
1) Purchase a couple of more pots to fill with flowers for indoor enjoyment. Since I spend so much time out of commission, I don’t want to miss out on the beauty of my soon to be colorful gardens, on days that I can’t make it outside. At least I’ll be able to enjoy some of the beauty inside 🙂
2) Purchase the flowers for the gardens and map out where I would like them planted, so that my hubby can get them in the ground for me 🙂
One of the most important things I have learned about goal planning, is to not take any of the steps for granted. Every step requires energy, and it is likely that I won’t be able to complete a goal, in one giant step.
The shopping alone, will likely wipe me out, and be enough for one day. Potting the flowers for indoors, will likely not be done on the day I purchase them. Since I’m fortunate to have my hubby who will be planting the gardens, I just have to map out where I want the flowers to be planted, and he’ll be taking care of the rest 🙂
So, I have from today until Sunday evening to successfully complete my goals. Next Monday, I will let you know how it went, and I will set new goals for the new week!
Who’s joining me for goal setting Monday?
What are your goals, and how do you plan to successfully achieve them this week?
What are the obstacles that may prevent you from achieving your goals (aside from health issues)?
I can’t wait to hear what you have planned, and offer any support and encouragement that I can!!!
Wishing everyone a wonderful day!
