This year has honestly flown by so quickly. I am still in shock that I am talking about my December goals already. In this post you will see that I am recapping my October goals instead of my November goals. Unfortunately in October both of my grandparents went into the hospital within a week of each other (You can read about them here and here). So I did not have much time to blog and then November came and things got really bad for me. My grandfather was said to have been doing much better and got out of the hospital, then went back in in which he passed away. It has been a very tough few months for me. However, I will leave my thoughts for another post when I am ready to talk about my feelings. A huge thank you though to all of those that sent prayers, love,etc my way during that time. I greatly appreciate it!
I always love a new month because that gives me something to look forward to as far as what I would like to get accomplished. It’s always nice to have a fresh start. Today I’m going to be recapping my October goals and share what I want to accomplish this month.
October Goals Revisited: Blog & Personal
-Set a date for my engagement photos// Yes!!! So happy this is done. I even scheduled my makeup/hair appointment for it as well.
-Start finalizing the rough draft of our wedding guest list// Yes!!! We added more people to it after realizing we had missed some people. I have a feeling we will be having to up our number of guests.
-Start looking into hotels to block off for the wedding night// Not yet. I really need to get on this!
-Write five beauty posts// This did not happen. Unfortunately with two family emergencies back to back, blogging this month got put on the back burner.
-Write five blog posts ahead of time// Didn’t happen either. I wrote three blog posts ahead of time. So I guess that is better than nothing.
-Continue working with brands// Yes!! I am currently in the process of working with a few more brands. I am excited for these opportunities.
-Start saving money for Christmas presents// I haven’t really saved any money yet for presents but I did buy a few, so I’ll count that as a yes.
4/7// I am actually proud of myself for even accomplishing four of my goals. October was a very rough month.
December Goals: Blog & Personal
-Block off a hotel for our wedding// Seeing I have not had time to do this…I really need to get on it.
-Take some time to relax// I have slowly begun to relax after all the events that took place. I need a spa day though ASAP!
-Continue to purchase Christmas gifts// I have only purchased a few gifts and have a long way to go.
-Enjoy spending time with my family over the Christmas holiday// Seeing everything that has happened recently, I just want to take all the time I can to enjoy it with my family.
-Begin drafting ideas for content for January// I already have several ideas as far as what I want to write for the month of January but I need to put it altogether.
-Start reading The Lipstick Gospel books// I saw this on my friend Leslie’s Instagram as a suggestion and I had to order them.
-Book a videographer for our wedding// I have already messaged several of them but need to make my final choice.
I hope you enjoyed the recap of my goals from October and my goals for this month. I have several goals for this month but nothing that is too crazy. I really need to take time to relax and enjoy life a little bit.
What are you goals for this month? What did you accomplish last month?
