mum's thoughts, greetings, NaBloPoMo 2014, writing, 2014 goals, writing challenges

I cannot believe that October simply zoomed by and we are welcoming yet another month today. Yes, after the observance of All Saints’ Day , the Christmas season is once again here! The merriest and the busiest season of all, really. If you ask me, I feel like I have a gazillion of things to do now that it is barely 60 days before the year is about to end and I shall be checking the goals I’ve list down at the beginning of the year and see if I have accomplished a few of them {which I am hoping I did really!}. Numerous things are traversing off the top of my head at the same time, thinking of the many things I have yet to finish or start. My to-do list will be brimming this month and I do hope to get ahead of the pack and finish off a number of them early.

Here are a bunch of stuff on my to-do list for this month:

  • Tidy up our closet for stuff we no longer use and prepare those for donation
  • Wash a pack of the little one’s toys that we are bringing to the nearest Jollibee soon, in support of their Christmas toy drive
  • General cleaning at home
  • Putting up our Christmas tree {which I intend to do once I finish part of the general cleaning}
  • Go to my OB {I know, I have put this off unnecessarily and it is a must that I visit before the year ends}
  • Visit the dentist
  • Jumpstart my new meditation class {and I am just excited!}
  • Go back to the yoga center
  • Saving up for a shelf or another closet so I can finally tidy up the living room and free it of the little man’s toys and things!

I do hope I’d be able to make time for all these items and a few more.

NaBloPoMo 2014

So here comes the NaBloPoMo bit. I stumbled upon this blogging challenge while browsing through the numerous posts on our Mommy Bloggers Philipppines Group and was drawn. I just love these challenges, especially those that will encourage me to write and fill up this blog on a daily basis and by posts I mean the personal post that I love to write but cannot find the time to do so, instead of the press releases, the obligation posts and events posts that I have probably bombard you with of late. Sorry about those, as their nickname suggests, I really have to write all about them. 

So what is NaBloPoMo?If you are familiar with NaNoWriMo {or the National Novel Writing Month}, this pretty much has the same principle, except that instead of working on your novel for the whole month of November, writing each day, you get to write blog posts daily, thus the name National Blog Post Month. Which I really like as I will end up with 30 different blogposts at the end of the month and enable me to update this blog regularly {which I know I haven’t done successfully recently}.  And did I mention, they have also come up with great blogpost prompts, in case you run out of ideas? Should be fun, so I hope you jump in and join us on this adventure! :)

Before I go, I will leave you with this lovely quote I got from Facebook to inspire you to jumpstart whatever projects or goals you might have for this month. Have a sweet November and may it treat us the best! :)
