August : dreams + goals

Yes, it's that time again folks - time to reflect upon your dreams and goals for this new month of August.  (Here are my dreams for July). August dreams + goals

August dreams and goals

What do you envision for August?

Do you have any specific dreams and/or goals to bring to fruition?  Maybe you just have a particular emotion that you would like to represent this month?  For August, I'm thinking:  nurturing.  Nurturing time for myself but also relishing time with my family and doing activities together that nurture us as a whole.

Come September it will be back to school and a new routine for our oldest son who starts high school and embarks on new adventures, so I really want to make this most of this month.

Thinking about other ideas for August, I came across the image below on Thistledewblog and thought it had some great ideas for drawing in our journals and general creative ideas and thoughts for this month.

August art journalling

August so far has been about slowing down and this feels good.  There's spurts of activity but times of rejuvenation too.  I'm also aware of our boys being too busy and filling each and every minute with some activity (and me too).   I sense that they need repose (just as much as me) and time for reflection and just 'being'.  I've also noticed that when they are able to move beyond boredom and just 'fall into' a new and fun activity, they often have some of their best moments of the day.   I remember that happening when I was a child, don't you?

Back to this month's August page, my last sentence says: May there be spontaneity, childish fun, love and creativity... What might yours say, look or feel?
