Set new goals. Meet new challenges. Dream a new dream.
I set new goals every week, well I should say John and I set goals each week. We display the goals on our fridge weekly to help keep us focused during the week and at the end of the week, we revisit them.
We decide whether or not we followed through with each of our goals and how to be more deliberate in our next week. It’s funny too, something that seemed like such a small habit to start a few months back has really had a huge impact on my daily life.
I guess to get where you want to go, you first have to know where you want to go.
Be smart with the goals you set, make sure they are attainable and specific. Many little goals will help you achieve one huge success. That is my best tip, it will help you keep your eye on the prize while also helping to keep you from getting discouraged and having feelings of being overwhelmed with one extra-large goal. If you set many mini goals to one big goal of yours they can help by being mile markers and you will have more to celebrate along the way. Small attainable goals are a good key to success.
Discovering a new passion
I am continuously working on new goals. Lately, I have been lucky enough to have discovered a new passion of mine. I think in this life you really have to make your own wake. The best way to do so, is to find things that drive you. For me, those things include yoga, crafting, people, and of course writing.
Most recently, I have been diving into this newest passion of mine: candle making. I have been experimenting and working on perfecting this art of candle pouring. While also focusing largely on macramé covers to make my candles just a little different. One day while over at my grandma’s house I found a beautiful macramé wall hanging. When I pointed it out my mother told me that she had made it in her youth, I was in awe, it looked so great. This has been part of my inspiration to dive into this hobby of macramé. I even have been enjoying this one so much that I am now working on starting to sell these unique gifts.
At the yoga studio, I attend they are having a Holiday Bazaar which will be my first chance to show my work to the public. They made final decisions this week, so this is my grand reveal that I will have a station at this event. I am eagerly anticipating it and hope that you will send good vibes my way on this new personal adventure.
Baby Steps toward goals
Stay tuned to learn more about my future endeavors in the world of small homegrown business and the challenges and triumphs it may bring me. I will be working to make my own website too, with the help of my adoring boyfriend, John.
What are you working on right now? Anything new? Any continued passions in your life? I love to hear others passions and how they make their own waves in this huge Ocean of life.
Ending notes for today:
- Dream big and learn to create your own waves.
- Hell, you may even teach a few folks to surf along the way.
- The holidays are coming, so I am making my full transformation into elf status currently.
As always live lightly and love courageously my dear readers, until next time.
