February – a “loverly” month

February is the shortest month of the year, and yet I am packing it with a hefty to-do list. After completing the first half of my Martha and Matilda commission in January, I am going to wrap up the rest of the commission this month. The second book is just as darling as the first about his lovely daughters at the circus. I can’t wait to share it with you!

Also listed, are some parts of my business that I need to focus on right now. Etsy can be a great source of income, and I am working to learn how to tap into the community. These first few sales will be tough, but important for building my reputation in that realm.

Numbers 4 and 5 are perhaps the most important for me this month. They are more personal, but serve as a reminder:  What good are my goals if I don’t stop to enjoy my life and what I am doing?

I am going to try to accomplish my business goals this month while simultaneously remembering to take a day off now and then. Sheesh!

Have you ever felt that your goals were taking over your life instead of helping you live your life the way you wanted to? Leave your response in the comments below – or write a whole post and link to it here. In February, we should learn to love ourselves.
