Goals for November 2017

Hey boo! At the beginning of every month, I will share my goals for the month ahead. I want to develop the habit of taking the time to think about what I want to create in my life and setting goals every month. Hopefully this will help me to dream big and stay focused on what I want. Plus, I’m the kind of person that needs a little accountability to get things done and posting my goals on my blog will motivate me to take action.

Create a Morning Routine

I want to create some consistency in my life. I feel like I just crave some routine so my mornings don’t feel so rushed. I want to start each day off with intention instead of waking up late and doing the bare minimum to get out the door.

Start a YouTube Channel

I’ve wanted to start a YouTube channel since I was in college and have never just pulled the trigger and started one. I’ve already filmed one video and still haven’t started my channel. I’m so close! This month is the month that I’m going to start. Stay tuned.

Host 2 Desire Map Intro Sessions

Earlier this year, I became a Desire Map Facilitator. The Desire Map is life changing book about about creating goals that help you feel the way you want to feel. If you’re interested, check out the book here (This is an affiliate link, so if you decide to buy the book, I’ll get a commission. Thanks in advance for the support!). As a facilitator, I can host workshops to help women make time for themselves, discover how they want to feel, and start doing things to make them feel that way. To give people a taste of the pf the Desire Map before they sign up for a workshop, I will have some short intro sessions. My goal is to have two intro sessions this month.

Post on my blog once a week

I want start writing on a regular basis and showing up as me in the world. So this blog (and my YouTube Channel) will help me do that. I want to post on here at least once a week to get into the habit of of sharing my thoughts and stories. So check back next week to see how I’m doing.

Challenging Myself to Be Myself

I was sitting in my favorite bar on my 28th birthday. It’s a swanky little place in my hometown called the Shady Lady Saloon. It has the feel of a 1920s speakeasy with cocktails that I can’t get enough of. Two of my favorite people celebrating with me, my husband and my best friend. We’re laughing and reminiscing over our first round of drinks and we decide to order a second round. I was enjoying a refreshing gin cocktail called a white linen and I could wait for the next one to arrive.

As our drinks arrived, I was telling a story about something that happened a couple weeks prior and my best friend gave me a look that said, “What the hell?” She was surprised because we sit right next to each other at work, see each other almost every day and I didn’t tell her when it happened. And you know what, it wasn’t the first time. I apologized and told her that I just have a hard time sharing about my life. Good or bad.

HOLDING MYSELF BACK

Our conversation stayed in my mind for a couple weeks. I undervalue, or I fear others will undervalue, my stories and my ideas and it’s keeping me from sharing on Facebook, Instagram, or in everyday conversations. More importantly, its keeping me from putting myself out there and going after my goals and dreams.

WELL, I’M DONE WITH THAT. IT’S TIME TO PUT MYSELF OUT THERE.

For the past 8 years (yes I said 8), I have wanted to start a YouTube channel. For the past 6 years, I’ve wanted to start a personal blog. For the past 5 years, I’ve been trying to start a successful business. I’m rolling all of these goals in one big scary, challenge for myself.
