2017 goals

Currently……… August 2017 Edition

Reading…… Clash of Kings – A Song of Fire and Ice #2Game of Thrones

Planning………My content. Surprised , Me too.

Watching………. Game of Thrones Season 2, Disney Movies , Probably old 90’s classic movies(That statement makes me sound old)

Listening to Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, and  Florida Georgia Line

Cooking Whole 30 approved  stuff, and coffee cake.

Eating Whole 30 Approved stuff , Trail Mix, and M&M’s . You know gotta keep it interesting.

Thinking of a lot of stuff. Life, Blog, Books. Everything and anything . Mostly how does the Solar Eclispe make you blind? , not from a biology standpoint but an astronomical one.

Going to work soon.

Dreaming of Fall nights with jeans and boots and sweaters and sweatshirts and shorts weather. Oh and Pumpkin Spice stuff( Yes, I know its out but it is way to early; at least lets get to September before the whole world goes basic white girl. )

Listening to T-Shirt by Thomas Rhett on repeat.

Annoyed with my split ends – I need to get a trim, the fact that at work we already talking about the “holiday season” , that I haven’t had a chance to go swimming a lot this summer, Having to reread a 900 page book because you waited too long to read the next one.

Drinking Coffee and Water. I like to keep it simple.

Wearing either shorts and a t-shirt or whatever will keep me comfortable at work where i wont freeze or get tooo hot. With a heat index of 100 don’t count out skirts and dresses. Oh and probably my Vans or Sperry’s.

Enjoying my days off, nice weather and taking my dogs for walks.

Asking people if I can anonymously mention people in my blog- but if you know me well enough one would know who I am talking about.

Figuring out how to possibly take #ootd’s and this whole blogging social media system.

Smiling because well I am actually writing again, I look cute.

Grateful for new people in my life, B, and old ones, M&C, that help me keep me from over reacting and realizing I do not have to be perfect right now.

Searching for ways to save money and pay off debt.

Buying foundation, clearance at Kohl’s-there is a great selection of Summer Spring stuff on clearance.

Learning a lot of stuff. Mostly if you don’t listen to your parents you will eventually get the lesson they were trying to teach you- just the hard way. Learning debt is actually really bad and puts a road block to your major goals.

Trying work on my blog, fitness and just life in general. Oh yeah majorly trying to get my finances in order.

Inspired by Bright Colors, good weather

Waiting for whatever is next.

Sitting either at the table or my desk. Right now its my desk.

Wanting to go to the pool after work, yall know with that 100 heat index.

Missing 

Loving  my life right now.

Goals Refresh- 2017 again

Well i konw i wrote my goals down in the beginning of the year but i think i have changed or refined them more. This is something i like about Powersheets , they can change along with you.

  • Keep up with Politics. I know this is an odd item but i actually have my BA in Political Science and it is something i really enjoy. Actually one of my dreams is to sometime work in Washington DC or to help educate people about Politics in general.
  • Read more books. I know this is kind of obvious if one wants to keep learning and getting better, but hey if its not in writing will it happen. And don’t let me loose in a bookstore. That is all i am going to say about that.
  • To work on my Faith.
  • To learn Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. To learn how to make graphics for both my personal use and blog and also how to make money with it.
  • To get better time management skills and be more intentional with my time.
  • To start a Young Adult Group at my church.
  • To work on my relationships with people and get better at communicating both in person and in writing.
  • To get Healthy – Mentally, Physically and emotionally. All while not letting my chronic illness of Diamond Black Fann Anemia control my life.
  • To work on my blog more consistently and treat it as a business. Use my blog as a second income stream in addition to working at Kohl’s part time.
  • To once again work on the Contentment Challenge.

These are in no certain order.

March Goals and February Recap

 

March 2017 (1)

So about February…….

Monthly Goals:

  • Call someone regarding starting a Young Adult Group at Church- Kinda did, emailed her on the last day of the month.

  • Finish the 2nd Game of Thrones Book – A Clash of Kings

  • Post Lilly that I no longer wear to Poshmark, Mercardi, and BST Boards on Facebook- Kinda did the opposite and bought from these boards. This is what made me realize that I had a problem.

  • Write THAT Email- started haven’t written in it since. Last night I thought of some stuff but of course I have by now forgotten.

  • Make and Keep 2 Friend dates

  • Get into a routine(Morning)

  • Come up with a Budget –And Stick to it– Contentment Challenge RESTART- Kinda did. Well I am recommitting to it for Lent and no more buying anything.I already blew it at Kohl’s because I was trying to get Kohl’s cash.

  • Come up with a Savings Plan

  • Plan for Blog going Forward- Once again kinda. I knew what my goals are for the year and the next three months , one of them being more consistent in posting is still my downfall. I did get a little notebook to carry around with me for when an idea strikes. I have the ideas I just have to actually write them – plain and simple.

  • Powersheets Prep 2017- Turns out I could put this on the next month

  • Keep up with Cultivate What Matters Book Club, She Reads Truth , and the In The Wait Study

Weekly Goals:

  • Call my Best Friend – Well I have texted her and kept in contact so that is an improvement.
  • Do Blogilates – Yeah did not happen.
  • Go Running
  • Work on Skillshare class- Photoshop- Did not happen. Part of it was I didn’t have the computer that has Photoshop and then I was working a lot.  
  • Get peoples addresses I care about
  • Bi-Weekly Blogposts
  • Read 1 book a week

Daily Goals:

  • Do stuff I know I need to do (Exjade and CPAP Machine)- I have mixed feelings about my CPAP machine and I know I did not take the exjade as often as I should and my ferritin level showed it. This shouldn’t be a problem because if I get too much iron in my body I can basically die- you would think that that would do it. It is just brutal on my stomach.
  • Drink Enough Water – kinda happened because I got a new water bottle and when I used it drank more water and in turn felt better.
  • Write something everyday- Nope
  • Blogilates – Nope
  • Get Up Early (by 7:30)- Not really. I mean I woke up early but then I just went back to sleep.
