Goals Four: June 2019

Hello all! I’m here again with another #GoalsFour post. If you happened to stumble upon this post, basically I list out four goals I want to achieve or things I want to work on for said month. Get it? Goals for… Goals FOUR… Yeah, super clever. I also revisit what I listed in my last installment and end by saying four things I did well with. Check out my latest #GoalsFour post. If not, keep reading to find out about my goals for June 2019.

Motivation to Start that Blog

I’m a millennial, thus it’s not surprising to hear that I enjoy social media and consuming online content. However, this isn’t something that’s interested me now since it’s more trendy. For years I thought and dreamt about starting my own blog, Youtube channel, etc. With Youtube, I quietly made a channel and would upload maybe two videos every year. And it wasn’t util late summer 2018 when I started this blog.

Something finally clicked in. I finally did what I wanted to do for so long. I did it for me. And sure, neither are my main sources of income (yet) but it’s a great creative outlet that I’m proud of. If you are thinking about starting a blog, but are nervous or just need some more motivation to: keep reading.

Goals Four: April 2019

I’m back with another “installment,” if you will, of #GoalsFour on my blog. Basically what I do is every other month (or whenever) I list my four goals (get it – play on “goals for…”) the upcoming month. I list things I want to do, accomplish or improve on. But not only that. Additionally, I list four things I did well on recently. Either the last month or since my last #GoalsFour post.

The last installment of this was done in February. You can click the link above to read it. But now we are in Spring, the days are longer and we even had a day of weather in the upper 60s. So as I prepare for April, which I believe will be a very transformative month for me, I felt that this would be the perfect time to do this. So continue reading as I sit back and reflect.

A Leap of Faith: New Chapter of Travel

I always talk about complacency. The fear of it. My determination to not get anywhere near it in my life. And to be honest a pretty frequent feeling that at times I am. For instance, I always discussed wanting to travel the world. Living in a foreign country, going backpacking across Europe or South America, spending a year in Australia on a working holiday visa, you name it. But to me, I always looked at those things as what I would do in the future.

“I can’t wait to travel SOMEDAY.” Sometimes I’d even say soon. For me doing it now didn’t seem like an option. Despite my numerous visits to my many travel apps trying to find the best flights available. For instance, a couple months ago I found a round-trip ticket to Paris for $250. I’m still kicking myself for not getting it. But recently I decided to take a leap of faith.

By booking my first trip to Europe.

Oh, and I’ll be gone for 13 days.

Oh, and I’ll be alone.

Goals Four: February 2019

What goals do you want to achieve this month?

Welcome back to my blog (or welcome if you’re new). This is my second installment for my #GoalsFour series on my blog. The last one I did was in December. Basically, in each post I will discuss what I want to accomplish over the next month or two. I will list four areas of my life that I want to work on or four things I’d like to accomplish.

At the end I will also list four things I did well since my last #GoalsFour post, whether it was something intentional or unintentional. It’s good to remind yourself of the areas you did well in. Because even if you didn’t hit the goals you set out, maybe there were other areas in your life where you took major steps forward. Thus, the purpose of this series is to motivate me, give myself a kick in the butt which I need from time-to-time but also appreciate the work and growth I made. So, if you’d like to read what goals I have out to accomplish, keep reading.

Why I Hate New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year!

Happy 2019 Everyone!

Can you believe that we are in 2019 already? I can’t necessarily say this year went by slowly, because at times it felt excruciatingly slow. However, some parts now seem like a blur. And we are all familiar with when New Year’s comes around people like to talk about their goals/resolutions for the new year. I am all about setting goals. In fact, last month I started a new series on my blog where I talk about my goals for the upcoming month.

That being said, I hate New Year’s resolutions. I’ll admit I’m one of those people who roll their eyes at the whole “new year, new me” thing. A someone who gets motivated by goals and planning, why do I dislike New Year’s resolutions? Keep reading to find out.

Goals Four: December 2018

If you are a regular reader, thanks for coming back to my blog! I appreciate you. If you’re a new reader, welcome! I also appreciate you and hope you find my blog interesting and motivating. I decided to do a different kind of post today, one related to goals and what I’d like to set for myself December 2018. This may seem a little odd, right? Usually people wait until January and the start of a new year to list out their goals. But I’ve never been a fan of New Year’s Resolution and the whole “new year, new me” thing.

Why? Because I believe it encourages people to believe that they can’t make changes NOW. They always have to wait until next week, next month, next year. I’ve heard someone say they want to get fit but they weren’t going to start until next month so they can “start fresh.” Isn’t that insane? I think now especially I need to refocus and spell out my goals because this past month has been a tough one and caused me to fall off track a bit. But the new series on my blog may help me fight that…

I also realized I’m unintentionally posting this on the 4th of December… trippy.
