Let me start off with an apology. I’m so sorry for not posting in a while. Life has been crazy. The end of the semester hit me like a ton of bricks and I’ve been struggling. Because of that, this isn’t going to be the longest post. I’m still in the middle of two big deadlines but figured that I should at least check in and let y’all know what I’ve been up to. Hopefully, you’re all less stressed than I am.
We’ve officially made it through the first quarter of 2018! I can’t decide if time has flown by or dragged on (to be honest, I’m still recovering from the longest January ever). Like I mentioned in previous posts, I have 4 main goals for this year. Goal #1 was reprioritizing, which was hard but necessary. Reprioritizing allowed me to focus on what was really important and start the year off on a positive note. Over the next few months, I’m going to be focusing on consistency.
The beginning of the year comes with lots of hope and big plans. By April, real life sets in and it’s really easy to give up on our goals. Not going to lie, I’ve already fallen into old habits a couple of times and it has been really hard to stay on top of everything. There are still times when I go back to things and people who aren’t good for me, even though I know better. This quarter, I’m going to work on maintaining the good habits I’ve gained and avoiding the bad ones.
Obviously, things don’t always go to plan but I’m going to do my best to be as consistent and productive as possible. As usual, my planner is going to be my best friend. Consistently updating it should help me see what commitments I’ve already made and figure out a realistic way of achieving my goals. I’ve also decided to find an accountability partner. I tell myself that I’m going to accomplish a lot of things but don’t always follow through. Hopefully, having another person keeping me accountable will help me do a better job.
Like I said, this is a fairly short post. I’ll go into more detail about staying consistent once deadlines and exams are (finally) over and I feel human again. In the meantime, let me know what your goals are for the rest of the year.
