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.
