Happy August! The month of August definitely has a new meaning this year. With all of the drama surrounding Will and Jada Smith’s marriage with Jada’s entanglement with August Alsina, I thought I’d do a play on words and get into an entanglement myself. Now my entanglement is completely positive and will definitely benefit me in the end. This month I plan on getting into an entanglement with my goals. We only have four more months left in 2020, and it seems like we were robbed a bit with this COVID-19 pandemic. This month, I plan on getting back on track with some of my goals to ensure that I end this year successfully. I would be so far ahead of my fitness goals if COVID never happened, granted I’m glad that I’m alive and well, but I can afford to lose some of the weight that I’ve gained. I also want to make sure that I complete the first class of my masters with an A. One of my biggest challenges this month will be my “no spend” challenge. I only plan on spending money on necessities like groceries and gas. If I do spend money, it will only go towards supporting black-owned businesses. I hope that you’ve set some goals for yourself and you achieve them! I will be tracking my progress via Instagram and Youtube, so if you’d like to follow along and keep me accountable go and subscribe to my Youtube channel. Let’s keep each other accountable!
All of a sudden 2020 got busy as hell for me. Things started off kind of crazy at the beginning of the year, then got really slow during quarantine, but it is ramping back up for me. Greece is officially open, so that means that I have been working full time again and doing my best to explore this island that I’m on. On top of that, I started my first class for my master’s degree. I’m currently attending Liberty University and I’m majoring in Masters of Business Administration. So far I am in the third week of the class, and I’m doing well, but I feel the stress. I also should be studying for the Project Management Professional certification, but I have yet to start doing that. I am doing that all while trying to maintain a relationship, a social life, and stay consistent on my Youtube channel. Other than that, life’s great! How are you doing post quarantine?
It’s my birthday!!! Unlike some other people that really don’t celebrate their birthday, or make a big deal out of it, I do! I usually try to celebrate everyday like it’s my birthday, so of course I’m going to go all out on my actual day. I am grateful for another year of life and starting a new chapter.
Since my birthday is so close to New Year’s Day, I like to use my birthday as my starting point for new beginnings in the upcoming year. For many reasons, December is a month of reflection and planning for me. I have already written out the goals that I want to accomplish for next year and am planning ways to achieve those goals. I’m a big planner, which is what I contribute a lot of the success that I’ve had so far to. When I write down my goals for the year, I write goals for different areas of my life. Work goals, education goals, financial goals, fitness goals, and personal development goals are what I like to focus on. It may seem like a lot, but 12 months is more than enough time to knock out some goals.
2020 is going to be a year of abundance and happiness, I can feel it! 2019 was a great year for me. There were some goals that I set for 2019 that I didn’t achieve; however, 2020 will make up for it. I challenge you all to write out some new goals for 2020 and create a plan to execute those goals. We all have something great to offer this world and the people around us, but sometimes we just need a freindy reminder and a little push, and your goals can be that push.
Here are some of the goals I have for 2020:
Complete half of my master’s degree
Start Youtube Channel
I wrote down more, but I just wanted to share a few. I hope you all have a great 2020 and are inspired to take action to write your own goals for the New Year. In the meantime, don’t be rude and tell me Happy Birthday!
