As I look at the calendar tonight I am thinking “wow, we’re half way through January” – the months really do go by quick! There are so many desires this year and as an ambitious young women I am determined to achieve them. With that said, everyday my mind has been flowing with ideas to make these desires come to life. As an individual who is passionate about goal-setting I really took my time this year to reflect on myself.
So what did that look like?
Well, this year I started to think about my goals two weeks before we got into January, 2018. In fact, I took about two weeks off of work to reflect on everything and connect with all the lovely humans that are in my life – grateful for all of them! As each day went by and things came to my mind I would start to write them down. Slowly, certain areas in my life started to jump out to me and that was because I realized I have hit my peak and I wasn’t feeling fulfilled anymore. It became evident that going into 2018 my soul is searching for more!
Fast forward two weeks into January I have completed my vision & goals board for 2018 – exciting! In order for this board to be complete I looked for inspiration, conversations with family, friends (new and old), doing new things, being alone and more importantly living in every moment and being honest with myself. Keep in mind, this process can be fluttered with many emotions and that is okay. I suggest to recognize why it is that you’re feeling a certain way towards that part of your life. Recognize and do something about it- your emotions are speaking to you. I definitely recognized and reminded myself about certain moments where I said to myself “HECK YES” because of the achievements I have today.
If you’re having troubles with starting your vision and goals board, below are a few things I got down to the nitty gritty – hopefully these can get your mind flowing:
- Financial Goal
- Significant Other/Romance
- Physical Environment
- Personal Growth
- Fun & Recreation
- Family & Friends
In short, my vision and goal for 2018 is to connect and take part with as many individuals within my community. More importantly, to take care of myself and bloom. To love my body, respect myself as an individual, appreciate all the efforts and to believe and live in the present. To kick ass in every goal I have set for myself and to not let any negativity hold me back – instead use it as motivation to succeed, because I WILL succeed. I determine the efforts I put in each goal I have set for myself. I will continuously stay grounded and strive for healthy relationships, adventures, knowledge and happiness – to live a fulfilled life.
2018, We’re half way through the month of January which leaves me 11 1/2 months to continue to turn these desires to reality.
Make It Happen.
