How Does It Feel To Blog Everyday?!

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:

  1. Committing
  2. Following Through
  3. 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,

  1. I like your post so much, its shows that you are human. So don’t be hard on yourself and take the day one at a time. Keeping goals are the best things to help you move forward and greet the next day with purpose. Give yourselves leeway to make mistakes and also to correct them along the way. All the best with everything in life.

    1. Hi Sugunag!
      Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I think you’re right. I am hard on myself, but making mistakes and correcting them is such a good way to actively learn. Thanks for following me. I am looking forward to following you and reading more!!

  2. Good job! Writing everyday is hard, and you did it! I think I will lose my creativity.
    Time flies and we need to use the most of it. I am trying to be more productive and this is my first day to change. You will get better and better too. Wish you and me luck. 😉
