April, A Time for a New Beginning

I love the month of April.  It's a beautiful month that says Spring is coming, or at least in different parts of the world.  Here in Guatemala the rainy season is going to be starting up.  Starting a new month is almost like a new year at this point in my life.  Last month is past and gone and now it's a chance to move forward starting fresh with new goals and new ideas. 

Over this last weekend, I listened to the General Women's Meeting for the LDS church.  I came to understand some things and decided that it was time for me to make some goals.  I've set 4 daily goals for myself:

                                 1.  Hand wash a load of laundry every morning.
                                 2.  Come up with  meals from scratch with things I have.
                                 3.  Keep learning Spanish no matter how much I learn, just keep learning, by
                                      by talking to people, Doulingo, etc.
                                 4.  Write everyday in my Journal.
I've never tried doing daily goals just monthly or yearly. I'm excited for this month for me to develop new talents and skills . For me this April is a time for a new beginning and with the rainy season coming up it's almost like a cleansing. Welcome April! I can't wait to see what's ahead!  :)


  1. Sounds like you have quite an exciting life in Guatemala. Learning Spanish should probably be the toughest on the list, but since you're pretty much immersed in the culture and language, you should have no trouble at all.

    1. Thanks for you comment. I have been trying to figure out how to turn off the Caption, but blogger seems to think since I'm in Guatemala that I now speak fluent spanish. I will hopefully figure it out soon. Thanks Again!

    2. Looks like you figured it out, Jessica! I made a comment and didn't have to sign in the annoying captcha. I'm enjoying your A to Z posts, glad you put them on FB so I could find them LOL.

  2. What a great way to kick off Spring! I love your goals and am rooting for you. Especially #2 - I have the hardest time when it comes to meal-planning and often make impromptu (and costly) stops to the grocery store. Using what I have in the house is possible but I get lazy. Definitely something I need to do better with. Best of luck with the A-to-Z Challenge!

  3. What an inspiring post! My husband and I live in Ecuador and I can really "get" the challenges you are facing. (I found your blog through the A to Z Challenge and am glad I did.)
