I have never been the best test taker. I am not sure when a piece of paper became my worst nightmare. When I opened the results page and saw "FAIL" for the second time in a row, I was devastated. I Googled "failed the PE Exam. Now what?" And I kept finding articles about how to study better the next time around or how to develop a better study strategy. It didn't help.
So, how did I get over it? Time. Lots of time. And I threw myself into studying harder than before to ensure that I could pass the exam the second time around. And, honestly, I don't know if I passed or not. I feel like it's possible that I did and I pray that I did. But, if I happened to fail again, I know it's not the end of the world. I will just dust myself off and try again.
If you’re anything like me, your planner makes or breaks your productivity. Having a yearly and monthly calendar, to-do list, and planning space at your fingertips helps you to feel in control over life’s chaos. Think of a planner as a centralized area for all of your organizational needs. I am OBSESSED with planners and I think you should be too! The planners I love the most are the ones that offer more than a calendar. My goal with this post is to equip you with space to dream, outline goals, and plan this next year with purpose so you can achieve success!
Setting goals is essential for thinking about your ideal future, and for motivating yourself to turn your vision of this future into reality. The process of setting goals helps you choose where you want to go in life. By knowing precisely what you want to achieve, you know where you have to concentrate your efforts. You'll also quickly spot the distractions that can, so easily, lead you astray.
I am beyond grateful that I had my parents to teach me the true value of hard work and how to save money from so early on in my life. Life after college wouldn't have been as easy if I didn't have them there reminding me and nagging me about finances and making wise financial decisions.
We are all experts at setting goals. Today we'll do 12 different things. And by the end of the month, we'll nail all those, plus one million more. Easy, right? Truth is, it's much easier to set goals than to ACTUALLY do them. It all comes down to motivation, and let's be honest: motivation can go down the drain...very, very fast. It's just so much easier to sit back and think about all the things we're going to do... eventually. I decided to do some research and went to the pros to find 10 new ways to reach your goal, whatever it may be.
Beyoncé's new album, LEMONADE, is so much more than just music to me. It is a call to all the men who have ever wronged a woman and a call to all the women who have ever overcome pain. I loved every song on the album, but I have highlighted my top ones along with my favorite line from each song. I am strong. I am intelligent. And I am confident. I don't care what you think of me. I have FINALLY found myself. I have met all the goals I set for myself back then and continue to set and MEET new goals every day. I was 4th runner up for Miss Austin Texas Latina 2016!! Haha I actually competed in a beauty pageant and was able to prove to MYSELF that I am beautiful and amazing.
I am sorry for my abscess and I hope I didn't scare you all away because of it. I promise to bring you all so much more in the next coming days and weeks. I have some product reviews, hometown gems, SXSW coverage, and so much more!! I also plan on getting to know my new little town of Round Rock and keep you all updated with the hippest and hottest places here!!
For years, through middle and high school, I would set these "New Years Resolutions". The thing with me and resolutions is that, for some reason, I would NEVER follow through. When I moved to Austin my freshman year of college, I decided to set goals, instead of resolutions, for every new year. The work "GOAL" just had so much more meaning to me. Ever since then I have set realistic and attainable goals for myself at the start of every year. Now that I have this blog, I plan on setting my goals for the year and doing a "goal update" every month until the end of the year. I want to really hold myself accountable and also inspire others by sharing my progress on my goals.
