april is one of my favorite months of the year because it means spring time which inadvertently means cleaning/editing and re-centering oneself with one’s goals for the year.
a big goal i had set up for 2017 is creating habits. however as i refocus and look back at the past couple of months i’ve realized the only habit i’ve developed is friday happy hour…this info graph that i found on pinterest caught my eye as it shows the importance of developing HEALTHY habits.
i know it’s been 4 months into the year and you might be discouraged if your goals/habits haven’t been in line…but spring is the perfect time to recenter and refocus. the best way i find to do this is by writing down specific goals. print out this info graph and jot down things that come to mind when reading through it.
time to get recentered and refocused…ready, set, go!
after a lot (and seriously, i mean a lot because my last real post was in july) of planning here is my game plan:
will regroup next week to let you know how week 1 goes. wish me luck!
ps: i haven’t written on her since july because i’m partially ashamed that i’m not debt free yet. i have recently had an epiphany: a life with debt is not one to be embarrassed about. it’s a day to day journey and one day (soon) my net worth will be a positive number rather than a negative one.
oh em gee, it’s july. the half way mark in the year.
it’s also my birthday month. so normally i take this time to reflect and regroup.
as i look back on my new year resolutions i laugh. they were so ambitious and unrealistic. as i turn twenty.eight. (eek) the sense of urgency to “get my shit together” is mounting. because let’s get real, being broke and thirty is not a good look.
aside from being debt free, twenty.eight. is going to be the year i start my passion project, aka my etsy shop. the shop will center around something i learned to make from my grandmother: tote bags.
i am so proud of myself, last night i cut the fabric, and started my sewing machine. only to find out that the thread i bought was too fragile for my machine! usually i take setbacks as “signs” but not this time. i instantly went on amazon prime and bought thread. i’ll report back later this week on how the project is going.
in the meantime, what is your passion project? i’d love to hear some of your hopes/dreams so please share with me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
