It’s been snowing ❄️ but not so much you could make a snowman☃️… at least not where I’m at… thank Yah 🙏🏾. It’s the month for hot cocoa, stackin & savin, as well as all the winter clothing you could ever find😂. Don’t forget it’s tax time😂🙏🏾⚠️‼️ It’s also time to recoup from Xmas spending. My sister and my cousin has a birthday this month🎂 🎁🍾🥂🥃 too. It’s also a new week, a new month and a New Year… EXTREMELY perfect for creating & strengthening habits, creating new goals and gaining new opportunities as well. So let’s get into what my month should be 😂😂🤔🤔🤷🏾♀️🤗. Before we get started, here’s some tips for a better life❣️, I will say it’s important to plan even though it says don’t plan so much… however living in the moment IS less stressful.
🌸I want to plan some solo travel trips!
❄️I’d like to bring more of my voice into my writing. I’d like to feature more opinion pieces & to be more passionate while feeling confident my blog is reflection of my thoughts, values and opinions.
🌸I want to stop over thinking!
❄️I want to spend less time in my head.
🌸What ultimately holds me back from reaching my goals is wanting things to be perfect straight away. Instead of spending endless time researching, thinking, analysing and googling (and procrastinating)… just do it!! Because if I don’t then it’s a good plan that’s useless!
❄️My goal as for finances is to save enough to have an emergency fund. I always panic about money and get anxious every month but to get rid of this completely I’d have to save a substantial amount. I’d have some security and won’t have to worry every month. I’m hoping to be spending less and saving more in 2019.
🌸I’m thinking I wanna do a Monthly Goal Report here and for the most part that’s what I’ve been doing with each new month. I’ve noticed however I hadn’t updated the lists at all with my progress.
❄️Another one of my goals for 2019 is to have my book published. I want to write & self publish 3-5 books on kindle by the end of 2019. I’d like to write & publish a minimum of 💯 blog posts by the end of this year.
🌸Let’s TALK TO GOD MORE✝️
– I have a diary app on my phone and a physical prayer journal I write in📓.
❄️Let’s SECURE MORE BAGS💰
– I got a new job‼️‼️‼️
🌸Let’s MIND OUR BUSINESS 🙇🏾♀️
❄️Let’s STAY PRAYED UP🙏🏾
🌸Let’s BE MORE BLESSED 😇
As we go into Page 2 of 365 Pages, remind yourself of what it is you’re working towards. Keep a journal, diary, agenda, or something to help you navigate the weeks ahead. Below is a savings tracker that I found on Pinterest that I’ll be following. It’s not extra extravagant and anyone, even a child saving an allowance could follow it. I’ll be updating the pic as I meet the money milestones as well but I physically wrote it down in my journal too. I’ll take a pic of that too and add it in another post about saving.
❣️‼️NO EXCUSES IN 2019‼️❣️
❄️IT’S NEVER TOO FAR‼️
🌸Get there if there’s a way!!!
❄️IT’S NEVER TOO LATE‼️
🌸If you get there/do it early— GREAT! If not, that’s okay. But don’t convince yourself not to go/ do it at all!!!
❄️YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD TO START‼️
🌸YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH‼️
❄️You’ve been through so much, this should be a breeze❤️!!!
🌸YOU’RE NEVER TOO BUSY‼️
❄️IT’S NEVER TOO COLD‼️
🌸IT’S NEVER TOO HARD AND IT WON’T BE HARDER THAN NOT DOING IT‼️‼️
❄️YOU’RE NEVER TOO TIRED‼️‼️ (Do listen to your body though, if you’re tired, you’re tired).
⚠️💋Reminders💋⚠️: YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOUR STRONGEST EXCUSES‼️‼️‼️
⚠️💋💋⚠️: It’s good to have friends/ family to support you in keeping your goals and meeting them!!!
If you can’t text or call your friends/family with an excuse then be talked out of those excuses and motivated into doing whatever it is you were avoiding, then you need new friends/family🤷🏾♀️‼️
