If you couldn’t tell by now, I’m the QUEEN of making goals. I have created yearly goals. Quarterly goals. Monthly and weekly goals. Goals based on my birthday and age. I’ve had relationship goals, financial goals, health and fitness goals – you name it. However, one of the main ingredients to successful goal achievement is consistency. The only thing I was consistent in was NOT … Continue reading To Reach Your Goals, Start Doing Them
Hey Fam! Welcome back. Let’s talk goals, shall we? August has been almost exactly what I thought it would be. It was transformative and renewing. I definitely feel like things shifted in the right direction for my life. There’s so much that needs to be done, but I’m beginning to realize the importance of slowing down and taking a day to rest. In August, I … Continue reading August Goals Recap & September Goals
Hello! It’s my birthday month! Go, Cortney! It’s your birthday! Well, it was on the 9th but you get the picture. I am officially 29 years old and I’m so glad I made it. In the spirit of starting anew, I put together a list of 60 things I’d like to do before I turn 30 in 2020. I got this idea from Emily at … Continue reading 60 Before 30
Hey everybody! I know I’ve been a little absent. However, I had to go be the best friend I could possibly be to a dear friend of mine whose mother was battling illness and sadly passed away. Nevertheless, we must persist. I’m so excited about what this year is going to bring. I can already feel that it will be transforming – not only for … Continue reading 2019 Goals Revealed
For as long as I can remember, I have disliked things about my body.
When I was a kid, I hated the gap in my teeth. My big lips. The acne on my skin. My kid belly. Even my feet. I was so self-conscious of myself, constantly playing the comparison game with people around me and on television.
As I got older, it only got worse. I told myself no guy would ever like me. My hair wasn’t cute enough. My clothes weren’t on trend enough. I was a nerd. I was a Christian. I didn’t go out. I stuck close to the few friends I had and created a place of safety.
Sadly though, that place wasn’t safety. It was just safe. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with safe and having legit friends who support you. But, I was afraid to do more or be different. And that’s where I crippled myself. Continue reading “You Should Go and Love Yourself”
So yeah, this post has taken the whole month to get put out. *rolls eyes*
Again, I’m a walking example of what I talk about on this blog! Consistency is key! No matter what life throws at you and how sleepy or tired you are – MAKE TIME FOR YOUR PRIORITIES.
This is my 3-month goals update! (For my original goals post, go here) So April has rolled in and started out the second quarter of the year. It feels like I just posted my 2018 goals last week! Time is waiting for no one. But, it’s all the more reason why we should not “put off for tomorrow what we can do today.” Tomorrow will literally be five months from now, and you’ll look around like, “where’d the time go?”
So, here’s an update on my goals so far: Continue reading “2018 Goal Update – Quarter One”
Ladies and Gentlemen, March has officially entered the building!
I’m not sure if it’s the fact that spring is near, or that I’m grateful February is over! All I know is, it’s about to be a great month.
February was trying! There was so much adversity and loss in such a short amount of time that I lost focus of my goals. I read through my bible plan maybe four times this month. I did not read my book of the month. The gym did not see me AT ALL (even though I was able to work in a few workouts at home). I overspent on my budget in four categories. I had to replace three tires. And the worst of them all, my best friend’s father passed away, causing anything I thought I had planned to come to a complete standstill.
It was rough. But it did not kill my determination to make progress this month! Continue reading “March into Momentum”
Hi Friends! It’s time for the ever anticipated (more or less lol) 2018 “Goals Reveal” post!
As mentioned in Monday’s post, I had previously written down a ton of goals for the year. However, after much consideration I narrowed things down by asking myself a simple question: “By December 31st, what do you want to have accomplished this year?” Continue reading “2018 Goals ‘Revealed’”
Hey, hey, hey! Just dropping in to share a little wisdom I’ve gained over the past few years. Because the list is so long, I will be developing some of these into blog posts later. Until then, let me know what you think! The 27 Things I’ve Accepted (or Learned) before Turning 27 I am enough (still learning). True friends accept the true you and … Continue reading 27 Things I Accepted before Turning 27
