Goals, May 2014

The Art of Goal Setting // And Yes To JoyHappy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a great weekend, and are kicking off Monday morning on a high note.

We’re five days into the new month, so I wanted to share my goals/outlooks for the next few weeks. Last month, I focused my goals on taking time to stop creating as much and spend more time developing the ideas and projects I’ve had in the works.

I’ve made a lot of progress since setting my April goals. I recently announced one of those ideas I had in the works, Quill & Ink, and got such positive responses. I think that goes to show that taking some time to work on developing was a good call. I can’t wait to slowly reveal all of the other things that have been in the works!

This month, I’ll be still focusing on developing for the blog and launching projects, but my goals for the month have shifted a little. More internal, self work needs to be done. I’ve been working on trying to find the balance between work and life (or sometimes, life and blog). I always want to keep making, doing, writing, but I’m learning that the time I spend making progress is just as valuable as the time I spend curled up in bed watching Netflix.

May: A Focus on Self-Growth

Areas of focus:

  • Finding my perfect work/life balance
  • Spending more time with my friends and family
  • Stepping outside of my comfort zone, changing routines, building my confidence.

Where’s is your focus this month? Have you set any goals? I’d love to hear them!

    I definitely want to work on work/life balance and doing things outside of my comfort zone! They are two things I keep putting off! Good luck on your goals for this month!!

    I DEFINITELY need some balance in my life… I mean take right now. I should be working on a paper and clearly that’s not happening. *sigh* I can get through this though! I’m graduating in about 11 days, so thinking about goals other than “graduate” is difficult! But I know I have a lot of projects and blog goals I want to tackle once graduation is out of the way!

    Building confidence! I’m working on this one as well.. One of the big issues I have is body image. While embracing who I am – here and now – I also know I need to change who I am, if for nothing other than my health first and the rest of the benefits are added bonuses.
