Hello ya’ll! This is the FIRST blessings/highlights post of 2019! I am so excited about all of the blessings that have happened and are to come! As you know if you are already subscribed, I do monthly blessings just talking about what I am grateful for and what awesome things may have happened to me this month. So many people spend so much time complaining and being negative that I STRONGLY believe that taking the time to stop and count your blessings is extremely important! Plus I love sharing these kind of things with you guys and getting a little bit personal every now and again! So, let’s get straight into it!
- I signed on THREE new clients! In one month, I have started three new clients which was so exciting for me! I don’t really promote myself like I could and like I should for my social media services, so when people reach out to me I am always super happy about it. This is probably the most clients that I have received in that amount of time. Even if it wasn’t getting clients is helping me promote my dreams and goals of doing the things that I love to do at home. I am so close to having a full client roster and that is extremely exciting to me!
- I got a great start on my New Years goals! January is usually the month people complain the most. There is the January blues that spreads around and I won’t lie, it did hit me too. I had a difficult time at first being motivated to accomplish the goals that I had set for myself. I also was frustrated at all of the videos and posts I saw of people dissing having goals for the new year which makes no sense to me. If you don’t like to set goals for the new year, that’s fine, but I found people’s negativity about people wanting to set goals kind of gross. New Year, new month, new week, I believe you should always set yourself up some goals. It doesn’t make any sense to spit on the time of the year when people are hopeful for their future. I, for one, take my goals seriously and I put forth effort to achieve them. Last year, my new year’s goal, I accomplished a lot of them even though there were still people talking about how people never accomplish their goals, but I did. So it is about who YOU are and how serious YOU are about becoming the person you’re trying to be. Sorry, that was a rant, haha. But I did really great getting a head start on my goals and I really pushed myself forward in ways I didn’t know I would be able to.
- I have started planning to travel! Traveling wasn’t really on my list of things to do this year but as the year began I realized that I never go anywhere for real. I am always home and usually in my house. So I decided that I wanted to travel this year and that i was going to make a special effort to make sure that I do exactly that. I started praying on it and meditating on it and next thing I know I am planning and budgeting to take THREE different trips! How do you guys feel about travel blog posts? I may throw a few in while I am traveling this summer although I have never really been into reading them. I think I would like to talk about my experiences… or maybe I should Vlog it for the YouTube Channel instead? Share your thoughts!
- I have doubled my ‘work from home’ income. Between my blog and my business I have actually almost tripled my income for this blog and it will only get better! I have been working so hard, you guys, and I have been making such progress and learning so much. I am super stoked about all that is to come in the next few months!
So those are the things I am proud of for the month of January. I feel like this month has been a great start of the year and a teaser to what is to come for the next 11 months. I am super hopeful and super grateful for all this year has brought me.
I meant to post this blog last week, but it completely slipped my mind and now I am typing it last minute the day before it goes out (which I never do by the way) and so I would also like to add that I am grateful I was able to write a blog post so last minute. I hope you have a great week. What great things happened to you in January?
