October is such a magical month! It also happens to be the busiest month of the year for Amanda Jameson Weddings (hooray!). While this is so, so, SO exciting, it's also a bit overwhelming. I often forget about "life" outside of my business. I'm also a worshipper, wife, daughter, friend, and ministry leader. I have gotten a little behind on my goal setting, but what better month to get back on track?!
1) Take a week day off. I am SO bad at this and justify it in so many ways. ha! I LOVE being a wedding photographer and I don't mind working on weekends but I often fall into the "feeling guilty" trap when I rest during the week. Enter feelings of constantly being tired and our poor little casa always being a mess. For the rest of October & November I have scheduled "Amanda's Day Off" in Matt & I's shared calendar.
2) Keep going strong with Financial Peace University Matt and I are 6 weeks into the 9 week course of Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. We are learning a TON and are working hard to create some good habits with our money & savings. We'd like to pay off the rest of our debt in one year!
4) Steward our bodies well We are still fighting through making this routine. Some weeks we do really well with healthy eating and exercise and then a busy week comes along and we find ourselves driving through Chik-fil-a multiple times a week.
