    February 2019 Personal Growth Goals

    It's the end of the month and time to share my personal growth goals for February. In all transparency, January has been a hard month. I've been going, going, going for so long now – constantly doing work, schoolwork, blogging – that my mind hit a wall. I'm not physically tired, but I am extremely tired mentally. For two weeks straight, I would go to do my schoolwork and then just stare at the computer or a book and not accomplish anything. My mind literally refused to function.

    Why to Start Small When Setting Goals

    We've all been there. We've approached a new year with excitement about how we're going to change our life in next 12 months, and, to that end, we set big goals. But I think we all know how this ends. We give it our all for two, maybe three, weeks, only to fail before the first month is ever over. You want to know why? We don't start small.

    January 2019 Personal Growth Goals

    How is it already time for my January 2019 Personal Growth Goals post?! I have to say that time flies by so much faster when you run your own business. There's so much you want to accomplish and, with every passing month, it feels like nothing gets done. However, on the personal growth side of things, I had some big wins in December and I'm so excited to share them with you!

    December 2018 Personal Growth Goals

    It's December and you know what that means... Christmas! Christmas is seriously my favorite and I'm so excited for this month to start! We spent the weekend listening to Christmas music and decorating our home and it is so beautiful! (That's a lot of exclamation marks, but I can't help myself. I really am that excited!!!) Here's what I learned in November and what I have planned for December in all its Christmas glory.

    November 2018 Personal Growth Goals

    I'm posting my personal growth goals a little late this month. The first week of November has flown by and I can't believe it's already the 10th! Overall, October was a phenomenal month filled with lots of festivities and fun times, and with the holidays coming up, I know there are more fun times ahead. The joy of the season is so rejuvenating!

    October 2018 Personal Growth Goals

    Talk about a crazy month! September was incredibly busy and the busyness hasn't stopped yet. Last weekend, my husband and I moved! We are now living in a house that is 20 minutes closer to my workplace and – the best part – the house has internet! (Well... it will once it's set up.) It's like walking into the 21st century!

    13 Things to Do by Yourself During the Holiday Season

    Do have some time to yourself this holiday season? If not, make some! As an introvert, I believe that time alone is just as important as time with other people. During the holidays, time alone helps us unwind from all of the parties and family gatherings. Take an afternoon just for yourself and try one of these activities.

    Make Over Your Mornings Review: Lessons and Takeaways

    Make Over Your Mornings is a 14-day course that combines videos, reading, and activities to help you create a morning routine that will set you off on the right foot each day. The course was created to only take about fifteen minutes each day, so you can curl up in your favorite chair with a cup of coffee and go through the course in the quiet of the morning. I went through the course recently (and am now going through it again), and I loved it! So I wanted share some of what I learned, what I loved about the course, and what I didn't love so much.

    September 2018 Personal Growth Goals

    August was a long month. It involved a lot of long days and some frustrations with work and school. But at the end of it all, work is looking up and I got an A on my first graduate-level course! There are some exciting things lined up for September and the rest of the year and I'm looking forward to putting (most of) those frustrations behind me and going all in on some new projects.
