August 2022 Theme: Plant seeds for the life you want | Knowledge and joy

One of the things on my summer bucket list this year was consciously planning how I spend my days as a way to have a better relationship with the passage of time. We are so busy with our children, family, friends and work that it is easy to miss moments as they happen. There have been periods in my life when I have looked back at myself without being able to remember where the time went. It is so unsettling to have days, weeks and months go by so quickly.

To begin to repair this relationship over time, I have become much more aware of planning things in advance, based on my values. By planning my time around what actually matters most to me, I’ve found that I experience life more thoughtfully instead of just letting things happen to me.

In August at Wit & Delight, our theme is about planting seeds.

It’s about planning and organizing our lives around values ​​we want to promote, goals we want to fulfill and experiences we want to prioritize.

August is the time to prepare for the upcoming fresh start of the fall season. It’s a time to revisit any goals we may have set for ourselves earlier in the year and think through how we can bring them to (or closer to) fruition. It’s time to consider what we want the rest of the year to offer.

I am already in this mindset of planning and organizing which is far from my natural inclination. I have my children’s school calendars written down and we are already talking about our plans for the holidays. I’m also aiming to make progress on some of the larger W&D projects I’ve had in the works.

Start planting the seeds for the life you want, no matter how small they may be at first. Your future self will thank you.

As we move into August, I encourage you to consider the ways that planting seeds has benefited you in life. In what ways has preparation and consideration led to better results? What goals are most important to you right now? What small steps can you start taking that will put you on the path to achieving them?

This August at W&D, I’ll be sharing my weekly work routine, my thoughts on our kitchen renovation after a year of doing it, and the process (and reveal) of our basement fireplace project. I will also share a closing post on mine freezing of expenses and I will keep the fresh perspective on expenses in mind in the future. Look out for this and oh so much more over the coming month!
