Happy New Year to you guys! How have you been enjoying 2018 so far? These past couple days I have spent reflecting. I really wanted to look back at 2017 and appreciate how far I’ve come through all the good times and the really bad times. Then I took the time to write my 2018 goals, rather I should say affirmations. I had a good talk with a friend who recommended that I try writing my goals as affirmations instead. This would put me in the headspace of doing, rather than hoping and wishing.
We’re already five days into Blogmas, can you believe it? It felt like just yesterday when I put out a post on Blogmas ideas
. I wanted to do a post on a topic that’s not normally talked about. That’s how to budget during the Christmas season.
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the holiday spirit and want to grant everyone’s wishes. However, this can result in you stretching your wallet too thin and then having to scrunt through the rest of December and maybe even early January.
So I wanted to share some tips for saving money during the holidays!
As you can tell, I have been pretty MIA on my blog. Even my posting on social media is sporadic. My last big post was all the way in April, can you believe that? If I’m honest with you, I was burnt out. I started a new full-time job this year and that took precedence in my life. The busier I got, the less time I had to blog. Moreover, I became more critical of what I put out online and became less motivated. It was like I was psyching myself out of posting. Although I love it, blogging along with social media became more of a chore for me. So I decided to take a break from blogging. View Post
During my down time, I have been reading more blog post than ever. I love this, as it helps me with my own writing. I able to enjoy the experiences of people from around the world. I’ve learned so much from just reading two or three blog posts a day, so I figured why not share the love. Here are 20 interesting blog posts that I’ve found for a good weekend read.
It’s been so long since I’ve done a monthly goals post. In fact the last post I’ve done with my goals was back in January. I really wanted to return to making one of my favourite kind of posts. In this post, I also do a check in on how far I’ve come with my goals as well. So click read more to check out my April 2017 goals.
