"The only thing that stands between you and your goals is yourself"
I actually found this idea on another bloggers page and it really did inspire me. I have always been the type of person that assigned goals to myself. Not only assigned goals, but I always write them down on a yearly bases. My mother always taught me the importance of having goals and then putting a plan together on how I would reach each goal. Everyone should have demarcation in their life of growth. Mine was yearly but you do not have to wait until the beginning of the year to set your goals. Why not start now? We all always have things we need to accomplish. This month I decided to start my monthly goals and I wanted to share them. Why, because I need accountability, don't we all! If I share my goals, I will feel more encouraged to accomplish every goal that I have set for myself. Okay moms, lets start having monthly goals and share them with each other so we can hold each other accountable.
I have been very consist with blogging but when it comes to my YouTube channel!!!!!!!! SMH, I have got to do way better! I bought a new camera and everything and I still have not used it for my channel. So this month, I am going to consistently post on my channel; with no excuse, that I'm tired or too busy. I have to get it done!
In order to be successful, you must be consistent!
I have always been a prayer. Constant daily prayer is something my mom taught me at a very young age. But, I have got accustom to praying just in the morning and at night or when times got hard. Just waking up praying isn't enough! I will take time throughout my day to pray! Even if it is just a minute. When I get to work, pray! When I leave work, pray! When I get to my kids, pray! When I make it home, PRAY! We all should continually be in prayer and giving thanks to God for everything he has done in our lives.
Starting this month, I am going to start praying more!
Drink More Water
This has been so hard for me. Over the years, I have had too many health problems and in and out the hospital due to not drinking enough water. I would only drink water during my pregnancies and that was only because it was for my babies. But this month, I am going to stick with drinking more water. I am getting older and it is really important to eat healthy! I am still working on eating more healthy and drinking more water. To help me keep this goal, I found some infused waters that I am going to try and I will share with you guys as well in an up coming blog.
Finish Christmas Shopping
Every year I always say I'm going to start Christmas shopping early and I never do. Then I am out all day and night the week of Christmas trying to get everything that was on my boys list and that is beyond stressful. What I learned is starting early is better and finishing up way before December is less stressful. I actually started last month! I can pat myself on the back for starting early. But, I HAVE to finish this month.
Complete 30 Day Mom Challenge
30 day mom challenge is something that I found and I thought that would be a fun interesting thing for me to do with my boys. A lot of times we get so busy we do not take the time to spend or talk to our children. It is the little things that count! Just simply saying I love you or just leaving a note in their lunchbox can make your child's' day. Hopefully, by doing this it will help me and my boys become even closer.
Take A Trip For My Birthday
We all need a break that's just life. Work all day, dealing with kids, business, blogging and etc. We need time just get away. So why not for my birthday? It doesn't have to be long distance and/or expensive or flying across the seas but, just somewhere for a weekend getaway where I can clear my mind, relax and nobody calling me MOMMA! LOL
So lets hold each other accountable for our goals and not just have goals for the beginning of the year but have monthly goals to accomplish as well.
