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.

#Self Care Tips-SANE

Hi Blog world,

While I was scrolling through Twitter last week, I came across, SANE, (charitySANE) on Twitter, who wanted their readers to blog about their own Self-care tips. I liked the idea, so here are my top three self-care tips I use.

First, I am actually doing it right now while I’m writing this blog post, enjoying aroma therapy through my diffuser; I am currently enjoying a mix of lavender and fresh linen scent.

Secondly, I enjoy a cup of hot tea in the evenings before bedtime. I usually enjoy any herbal tea. Do you guys enjoy tea? If so, which ones? Tell me in the comments bellow because I’m looking for suggestions.

Thirdly, enjoying a good book helps me relax. I enjoy reading books for a book club I’m apart of. Right now, my book club member and I are reading a book called, “Lost & Found” by Jacqueline Sheehan. It’s a good book; and I’m enjoying it.

Blog soon,
