In almost every blog, self-help book or webinar, at some point, the speaker will state that a goal is best kept when it’s made public. So that is a critical thing I do to help me keep my goals. For anyone who knows me, knows this isn’t easy.
I know some people out there might be upset about the fact that I am going to have a few blog posts about my goals but for me, this is important. It’s a huge step on many I’m going to have to take, I might as well jump all into the cold water.
My overall goal for the blog is to be able to express myself and share my journey with others. But as anyone knows about writing goals, this statement is WAY to general. To have a great goal statement, it has to be specific, have an action plan and have a due date. So, I am someone who really likes to show by examples. Let’s get started.
Alright, let’s take my general statement and get down to the root of what my goal is. I want to express myself and share my journey with others. Okay, let’s break down. Why do I want to share my journey? I find that the most exciting thing in life is to share stories about one another. I am not talking about making up stories or gossiping and things like that. I love to read about how people got to where they are now and how they built their lives. I also am I fan of sharing information and how to do things. I am a first time mom, a wife, a suffer of depression, a dreamer, a writer, a blogger and most of all, human. I love to save money where I can. I love to learn. I love to write. I love to share. Why don’t I combine this all?
So, here is what I am planning on doing. First of all, I think I am going to bring back my Wednesday Writing. This was just a blog post of one of my writings from that week. It will either be a sample of a project I am working on or a just random free writing. For more about my writing goals, see another post coming soon!
Also, my other goal is about just updating about my weekly projects. This is going to be a little odd since my household runs on a slightly different weekly schedule. My husband starts his work week on Saturday and ends his work week on Tuesday. So for me, I start planning my week out on Friday! That means that I will post about planning my week out on the day that everyone else is finishing his/her week up! On Fridays I will post goals for the week, things I am into and stuff of that nature. This will be new territory for me but it’s exciting!
The other things i really want to do with this blog is share information. Now for me, I’m into a lot of things. I love to learn, I love to use my phone, I struggle with depression, I am a first time mom, my husband and I are currently looking into buying a house, I am a stay at home mom and so many other things. One top of that, my past is a very dark and sad place. I have been through a lot and have experienced many things that others never wish to. With that information, I would love to share what I have learned with others. If I find a great way to save money, I would love to share in with others. If I find an amazing app, I would love to share that with the world. If I have an experience that I would like to share with others, again, I would love to share it with others. This pretty much boils down to the fact that if I find something good, whatever it may be, I am going to share it with the world.
Other than that, I really would love to create an amazing community of sharers and I would love it if you would join me!
Okay, so be on the look out for more goal posts! I can’t wait to hear your feed back!
