I’m a little late but I want to do monthly goals on my blog and actually make sure they are met. I’m going to keep them realistic for each month and then at the end of the month I’ll write about my progress. I’ll cross off this list below too!
So I’ve got quite a lot of goals this year. As this is the start of the year, I’m going to keep things light and not too crazy.
- Exercise at least 3 times a week
- Start riding again
Search for new employment Do something I’m proud of
- Help a homeless person out
- Clean my car out
Take the kids for a fun day out
- Donate old clothes/ organise
Be more positive
- Write out my personal goals
- Write more personal blog posts
Exercising – I’ve kinda been lazy with it lately and now I have started the year out with a nasty cold and it’s cold outside so I’m just not feeling it. Once my cold passes, I want to be realistic and start off with 3 times a week. I told myself I’m going to get in my best shape ever so I have to start asap!!
Ride – My horse is coming back from a foot injury. Right now she’s not 100% so it will be a few more weeks before I can get back on her but when she is feeling good, I’m going to get shoes on her and start riding once a week again.
Job – This morning at 2am I was searching for jobs online as I was feeding my baby. I was getting getting emotional and crying with snot all over my face (I have a cold too). My job is to look after my baby and I don’t want to leave her to go to work but hey, that’s single mum life I guess. We all get overwhelmed and feed guilty for things. I need to make some dollar so, needs to be done.
Do something I’m proud of – When you feel proud of yourself for something you’ve done, it’s like a ripple effect, you want to keep doing good. Off the top of my head I’m not sure what I want to do, but when I update at the end of the month, I’ll let you know.
Help the homeless – I hate seeing people suffer. Like I mentioned in one of my recent blogs, I see a homeless person sleeping on a concrete slab in their sleeping bag, across the road from Kissimmee Lakefront and every morning they get up, pack their belongings up and off they go, struggling through their day. Even if it’s buying them a coffee and giving them some words of encouragement, that’s at least something right? I don’t have a lot of money but if they know someone at least cares, then I’ll be happy.
Clean car – This sounds like such a ridiculous “goal” but you should see the state of my car. The kids have well and truly wrecked the back floors with their food and you can’t see the passenger side floor because of my shoes and coats and horse related items. It’s just disgusting. I need to get it clean and keep it clean (as if).
Fun day out with the kids – My kids deserve some attention. The baby is always getting my full attention and I feel bad for the other two. I want to take them out and spoil them more often.
Donate clothes – I have loads of clothes I don’t wear anymore, so I’m going to donate my old ones and organise the house. I hate clutter and right now I feel like my life is cluttered.
Be positive – I’ve started this year off emotional, questioning myself, upset and overwhelmed. I’m going through some stuff right now plus not feeling well and having a teething baby who has a cold, so I’m bound to be a little off, but if I’m going to be happy, I need to start thinkig more positively. I’m going to do good and think good and start to see results!
Personal goals – I have like 3 career paths I want to go down and I’m not sure which one to do so before the month ends I’m going to write my goals down, pick one and go for it!
Personal blogs – I really enjoy niche blogs but if I want to reach a wider audience or make more blogger friends, I’m going to have to open up a little and write more about my life, as apposed to just “How to” blogs. I’m sure at first it will be weird but once I get into it, I’ll enjoy. My last blog on blogger.com was actually more of a personal journal and I felt more confident once I had opened up a little and allowed people to see my life.
