May has certainly flown by. It has been a fast paced but fun month.
When it comes to movement, I certainly have been making some strides. I have slowly started getting my weight in the right direction and I am happy to report that I only need to lose three more pounds. I know with hard work and dedication I can lose the weight I need.
I have also completed my Hadley School for The Blind and Visually Impaired course “Going Places.” I even did a YouTube Series on the subject. Be sure to check my series out!
I have been published and paid for one of my works! You can read my article here.
This month my grandpa had his birthday. A good friend of ours organized a birthday party for him. I enjoyed helping my friend prep for the party by going grocery shopping and cooking some of the food. My grandpa enjoyed his birthday party. He enjoyed the lunch we served and chatting with our friends. All of our friends had a fun time at the party. The food was delicious.
When it comes to patience, I have learned that hard work does paid off. I am currently working on a special project for parents whose children have Nystagmus. I am excited to work through this project; I want it to be the best project it can be. Therefore, it is going to take time.
I have learned to be patient with myself when it comes to editing my videos because I am having some problems with the software. I believe that I have found a solution to the problem which is so easy. I enjoy making YouTube videos. Be sure to subscribe to my channel.
Lastly, I learned that being positive and having positivity makes all the difference in the world. I have been meeting my goals when it comes to my Facebook, YouTube and Blog subscriber count.
Remember to set your goals and achieve them. ! I believe in each and every one of you. 😊
April was a really tough month for me for personal reasons; however, I am proud of my achievements and for pushing through it.
When it came to movement I had to remind myself that the more I move and walk the better I would feel. My weight has been going up and down. Thankfully it is in the right direction again. I am proud of my achievements as I have been volunteering by writing for SANE: Changing mental Health for Good for one year. I accomplished an even bigger achievement by getting my first paycheck for an article I wrote. I never thought that I would be paid for my writing. My perseverance has paid off.
When it comes to my education, I just finished my second Hadley course. I cannot wait for my final grade and to be able to sign up for my next course. In addition to this, I finished my training at the local center for the blind and visually impaired; and I have earned my certificates.
When it comes to patience, I am waiting for a few things to come in the mail. I will be using these items for my blog and YouTube videos. I have been working on a #Secret project, and it is slowly coming along. I learned that I must be very patient with this.
Lastly, I am still learning that being positive has a big impact on what I can achieve. If I think positive thoughts and I set goals I can achieve just about anything. I truly am getting closer to my dreams and goals one day at a time.
Remember that you can achieve your goals and dreams too. 😊
The past two months have really flown by and I have met some milestones that go along with my theme for this year. As with my last 2019-more movement patience and positivity post, I am going to break down my reflections into categories.
Movement: Even though I have not lost as much weight as I want to, I am doing the very best I can by trying to continue to exercise by walking. I have also finished my Independent living classes at school. I have more confidence when it comes to cooking and being able to use my cane more effectively. I am continuing my education by taking online courses through Hadley and I have finished my first course called, Self Employment with a Minimal Investment. I am now onto another course which will help me reach my goal of self-employment.
Patience: I still have to work on reaching this value of patience. However, I have learned that being able to reach your goals does take time, patience and positivity.
Last but not least is positivity: I am learning each day how to be more positive and happy. Learning this last skill is not easy but I am getting there. One example of this is learning to be positive that I will get out of poverty. With the help and support of my grandpa, who I took out for lunch this past Monday to celebrate 14 years of living together, I know that I will meet my goal.
If you have a theme for this year how have things been going for you? Let me know in the comments below.
2018 went by so quickly; and now 2019 is here. I decided to set a theme for the year. More movement, patience, and positivity.
The reason I chose these key points are simple and easy to understand.
Movement: For me, this means a couple of different things. The goal I have is more self-care. I want to take better care of myself because I deserve it. I want to work on worrying and stressing less. I can do this in a number of ways. Writing in a journal, reading, and just getting things done without procrastinating is a great way for me to help myself. More exercise: I would like to lose some weight. I am conscious about how I look and feel, and even though I am only slightly overweight, if I do not lose what I need to, it can become a problem.
The second goal is to work on my craft. As a writer, I should always work on improving my writing, and I want to work on my editing skills. I want to work on continuing to grow my audience by being more present on my social media platforms.
Patience: This is a value that I need and want to work on.
Positivity: I want to stop being so negative. I found out, in 2018, that being and thinking positive helps. I want to achieve my dreams and goals no matter how big or small they are; having family and friends who hold me accountable is a great help. Finally, I want to focus on giving back to the community. No matter if its big or small I hope that God will allow me to be more thankful during this season and to help me realize its not always about me but others.
