Easy Ways to Turn Your Ordinary Summer into a Dream Summer

Updated: Jan 9, 2020

Summer is here.

Although summer doesn’t officially start until June 21, it’s unofficially summer here in Houston, Texas. It’s hot and the school year is on its final stretch.

During the summer, some of us have time off from college or graduate school, some of us spend time with our kids while we juggle our own pursuits, and some of us take vacations and enjoy ourselves - or a combination of any or these!

My question for you is:

What do you want the next three months to look like?

What do you envision for yourself, for your family, your language learning, and your creative endeavors?

The more you can visualize your perfect summer, the better chance you have of actually living it.

I know from experience that if I don’t have a plan, my summer will be over in the blink of an eye with nothing to show for it. I don’t want that to happen to me or to you, so I’ve brainstormed a couple ways to make our summers crystal clear in our minds AND in reality.

My first idea is to journal.
