June 2015 in Review

First of all… 
Happy 4th of July! 
Thank you to everyone who has fought for our freedom!
What I Focused on in June: 

1. Spending time with my best friend and her sweet little baby
2. Busyness with my non-writing job
3. Working on the second draft of When Life Hands You Lymes 
4. Spending time with family: Getting to meet my new little nephew and cousin-get-aways before one of my cousins gets married in a few weeks

Birthday Challenge and Dream List Update: 
13. Go to bed before 10:30 23 times (not in a row) {2}

Dream List: 
12-11-14 Read the “Proverbs of the day” every day for 6 months


 Reading List Update: 

Fiction:7
Non-Fiction: 0
Reviews: 0 

Considering that I’ve read 87 books this year, June is most definitely my least reader-ish month of 2015 so far. Not that that’s a bad thing, because it’s not. I do have to say, I need to brush up on my non-fiction, though! Three more months to read 14 non-fiction books (I am in the middle of several) and write 17 book reviews to complete my birthday challenge…
Traveling: 
Nights gone: 17
New states and countries: None
What I’ve been Learning: 

I’ve been learning about the happenings surrounding the months before statehood was declared for Israel in 1948. It’s amazing to me how much history I’ve missed out on because I was focused on other things. I am of the opinion that history is very important and have enjoyed delving into it this past month. 
I also really enjoyed learning about Ronald Reagan while reading Hand of Providence. My family has been slightly amused at how much Ronald Reagan info I’ve been spouting off. I’m almost done reading the book so you can be expecting a review soon. 
On a more personal front… I’ve been learning to let go. Mainly of my ideals of myself that I can’t actually control. Recently I’ve run into some roadblocks concerning what I want to do and how I want to spend my days and what is realistic. Learning to work within my limitations instead of shutting down has been a process, but I’m gaining ground which is nice. A friend recently told me Remember, when you’re tired it’s your body trying to tell you that you need to rest. It was a wise piece of info that I really need to have stored up-front in my brain.  
Other Things: 

Of course my computer deciding to fizz out wasn’t in my plans for this month, but I’m quite happy to have a newer laptop to be working on. I find a strange joy in typing. It’s the easiest way for my thoughts to escape my head and I miss typing immensely when I don’t have a computer to work on. 
On the 7th I reached my goal of writing 100 words on my WIP for a 1,000 days in a row. That called for some celebratory milkshakes. And, just in case you’re wondering, No, I didn’t stop my 100 words a day roll. I’m currently on day 1027 and have no plans to stop in the near future. Why stop a good thing? 
This last month has had so much packed into it, but not really the kind of things that can be documented and kept track of. It’s been more of life happening and being and growing and loving and learning and hoping and working and resting and just being

What about you? How was your June?
