Today’s post is my 31st day of blogging in a row!!!
This is a big deal for me especially since last month I blogged 29/30 days in the month. There were posts that were so empowering to write and other posts I wrote when I was lacking creativity.
At this point, what matters to me is that I committed to blogging everyday and I successfully followed through! Commitment, Follow-through, and Time Management have been 3 of the most challenging aspects in my life. I think I have honestly always struggled with these three, but this month I proved to myself that I am capable of committing and following through.
We are more than half-way through 2017!!! Can you believe that?!?! It blows my mind to think that we have already completed 7/12 months in this year. July has always been my 2nd favorite month. August is usually my most favorite because it is my birthday month, but this year I have mixed feelings about it mainly because I am turning 29…
It is hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that I am so rapidly approaching 30. I loved the idea of writing a “30 things to do before I turn 30” list, but now I am thinking of writing “33 things to do before I turn 33” because it will give me a realistic chance to follow through with some of my life goals.
I have been infamous for setting BIG goals, procrastinating, then shaming myself for not making them come true.
Now I have this newfound power of committing, following through, and time management. I still need to work on the time-management aspect. I thought I struggled a lot when my schedule was full with school and work, but it turns out that I also struggle with managing my spare time too. I make a big, ambitious list, but then I get to overwhelmed to even begin.
So for the remaining months in this year I am going to focus on:
- Following Through
- Time Management
I think that admitting that something is a weakness is the first step to strengthening that weakness.
I have learned a lot of valuable lessons in this year so far, but I have been frantically spinning out rather than spinning my wheels in the right direction.
For the remaining months of this year I want to live in the moment and stop stressing about the future. I also want to choose my battles wisely and make my health a priority.
How is 2017 treating you? What are 3 weaknesses that you would like to transform into strengths and what are 5 steps you can do to get you there? Please comment below to share!!!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
