Happy New Year!!!
I am so excited for 2018!! I just think that so many great things are going to happen this year, and I am ready for it. I started writing down my goals for this year weeks ago. I usually like to start my New Year’s Resolution on my birthday. My birthday is so close to New Year’s Day anyway that I can get away with it, and technically that’s really when the new year starts for me. For this new year, I brought it in alone in my apartment. I usually am out partying with friends, but this year I decided to do things differently. The offer was there, but I wasn’t in the mood for partying. I wanted to have an even better head start on my goals for the New Year.
This year I wrote down my goals and split them up into three categories: work goals, professional goals, and personal goals. One may say that work goals and professional goals are the same thing, but for me they’re not. My job has nothing to do with what I want to do for the rest of my life. However, it does allow me to keep my bills paid, and it is paying for me to go to college, so I want to make sure that I excel there too. My professional life is me building my brand. Inspiring people through the “Queen Juliette” lifestyle and continuing to put out great content that not only helps other, but helps me as well. My personal goals are different from both because that’s more of my health and wellness goals.
What are your goals for this year? If you haven’t done it already, write them down. Tell someone else about them so that they will keep you accountable too. We all have the same 24 hours in a day to make our lives whatever we want it to be. We just have to use our time wisely. I am one that struggles with time management, but this year I vow to do better.
Also, make sure that you are setting SMART goals for yourself so you won’t be disappointed. SMART goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound. This should be self explanatory, but what it means is to be deliberate about your goals and have a plan. Your goals should be based on your wants and desires, and not what other people want for you. This will stop you from having a lot of heartache. It’s way more easier to focus on something that you’re actually passionate about.
I don’t want to be too long winded, but I hope your 2018 is everything that you imagine and more! I hope that you achieve all of the SMART goals you set for yourself and that you have a prosperous year! Always remember that you’re Be-YOU-tiful and life is meant to be lived abundantly!
