In January I wrote a set of goals for 2019 and in March I wrote a post of ‘new goals’. As it is now September and therefore more than 6 months since I wrote these posts I thought it was about time I reflected on how I’ve been doing.
The main goals I had made for myself were to do with my side projects and starting up my own business.
•By September 2019 I will have a rough business plan, a company name, social media accounts and be registered as self employed. Not done this officially yet, but I have been scribbling in my notebooks a lot- I’m counting that as a win…
I have made adjustments to this website and I am giving more attention to my Partylite career and have been making lots of notes/taking courses on events and business related subjects to help me on my journey with Partylite and for my own separate ventures as well. I have a schedule above my desk with what days I should take time on which project, I will be adding things onto the list as time goes on, hopefully this will help me focus and achieve my targets. Big goals require a lot more time, effort, focus and motivation.
My next target was to become debt free and start saving, I have paid off a large chunk of my credit card and I am on a payment plan for my loans. I also have further plans to increase my income to try and speed up my repayments, fingers crossed it all works out 🙂
I set myself a challenge to learn new skills before the end of 2019 too. This year so far I have passed my driving test, finished a wedding events planner course and I am currently in the midst of an events planner diploma and a business manager diploma. I plan to learn lots more but feel this is a good start.
My fourth goal was to live happier and healthier. This one is a little harder, more so recently as I have actually been going down hill :/ I have been suffering with my anxiety and panic attacks again recently, feeling overwhelmed and not being able to cope, lost my job and been dumped BUT I have been trying meditation, I have referred myself through Let’s Talk 2gether, will be starting a CBT course and have started a new eating plan/fitness routine to try to help my energy levels, clear my skin and build my self love and acceptance so I feel like I am on the right path again.
Number 5 was: Be kinder to the environment- this one I have made the most waves with. I have my reusable water bottle, bamboo toothbrushes, metal straw, I always use my canvas shopping bags, I have cut down on meat and dairy products, have been recycling more thanks to where I have moved to having a great system for recycling and takes a lot more than my old flat did, I am also making an active effort to use less and less single use plastic in all products.
Looking back to when I set these goals for myself, I did think I’d be a lot further along by now but knowing the hurdles I have had to overcome over the past 6 months and the fact I have made starts on most (if not all) of the goals I set makes me proud to have made it this far, it may not be what I was expecting but I have started to make headway which is good enough for me at the moment. Yes there is a long way to go, no I have not made massive progress but I am still happy with where I am and eagerly await what the future holds, no matter how uncertain it is at the moment…
Until next time, TTFN
