2019: More movement, patience, and positivity

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.

How School is going ….

Hi Blog world,

It’s been a while since I blogged. Sorry, I have been studying and working hard at meeting my goals of getting good grades. 

Today, I had a  white cane lesson to learn about the commons and since I’ve been lacking in confidence with going up and down stairs we reviewed how to go up and down them with confidence. Building my confidence is going to take time; I will get it.

Blog soon,

Amanda Gene
