monthly goals

    Hi there and welcome to the July 2015 monthly goals, time has been flying so fast it’s making my head spin. It is nice to sit back once in a while and reflect on how things have been going so far in 2015. I will not lie I have been having the best year so far, when I think about how 2014 started and how messed up I was emotionally I am even laughing now as I type this as it was bloody hard. But look at me now, here I am having the best time of my life and excited to see what is in store for me. I am not saying I have it all figured out or that everything is perfect, I am saying I am not giving negativity two cents on my time instead I am just going to continue to live it up.

    I would love to do a half year recap but ain’t nobody gat time for that instead I will share my June goals and then share some of my July goals which honestly I am thinking up as I am writing this post.

    JUNE 2015 GOALS

    Apartment – Spend a weekend sorting out what to give or throw and what to keep. I want to maintain my simple is more goal. FAIL, work had left me with no time.

    Blog – Attend all blog meet-ups I have been invited to, lately I had been slacking and need to change and meet other bloggers. SUCCESS, I attended the afternoon tea London tour

    Blog – Complete all current reviews before accepting any new ones, I am so behind and need to really get on top of this. I am still learning how to say NO. PART SUCCESS, not completed all the reviews nor have I turned down all the offers.

    Blog – Finish all the Korea posts and get permission & photos to blog about my brother’s wedding. PARTIAL SUCCESS, I finished all the Korea posts but forgot to get permission and photos for blog about my brother’s wedding.

    Blog – Start working on improving my blog stats. FAIL, not even had chance to work on this.

    Holiday – I have the third weekend in June booked for a mini getaway but I want to book another for the 4th weekend in June. SUCCESS, I went to Brighton for the third weekend in June and to Brussels for the Fourth weekend in June.

    I think I did ok in June and as I always say not ticking off all the goals is not the end of the world, I will do some of the ones not done another time.


    Weekend Getaways – July is my birthday Monday and it is also my blogavesary month, so instead of hosting a giveaway or detail my blogging journey I will be treating myself to TWO home weekend getaway and TWO abroad weekend getaway this month.





    Me Time – I know this is silly especially since my first goal for July is weekend getaways but I really need to make some time for me and I mean some much needed me time. It was awesome to find myself in Brussels, a city I had never been to and knew no one. Somehow it was liberating and I want to continue doing this.

    Make time for Friends – Its crazy that I even need to write it down but honestly I am becoming the worst friend ever, apart from my BF in Korea who I chat with daily and M I hardly talk to my friends so I need to make time.

    Blog Sponsorship – May and June saw me actually get back some profit from blogging, I want to continue this and I am making it my next goal for the blog.

    T-25 – I am in week three of Alpha phase and I can already seem some change in my body, I want to make sure I complete Alpha and progress to Beta with noticeable results.

    These are my goals for July, it’s a special month for me so I will definitely be doing things that make me happy.

      You know those are pretty good goals, and I think you’ve done pretty good – that’s a lot of stuff! I sooo need to clean out some clutter in the house and on the blog too!

    2. July 3, 2015 / 3:11 pm

      I can get caught up in too many reviews too. I try to say no to most of them unless I really want it.

    3. July 3, 2015 / 2:13 am

      Sounds like a busy month, lol. I have a lot planned also, but I do have some days planned also to just relax and do nothing but enjoy being with my kids.

      It’s great that you’re working your way through your goals and making progress on some too. I need to go through my house and throw a lot of things out or donate to the charity shop, I can’t stand the clutter!

    6. July 2, 2015 / 11:02 am

      I started setting monthly goals for my blog and I’m so glad I did. It motivates me to write better. I’ve seen a big change in my blog ever since I started this.

      The weekend getaways sound exciting. I need to work on my blogs, too and yes, sort out what to keep and toss.

      • July 2, 2015 / 9:09 am

        I want my weekend to be as exciting as the last two weekend getaways have been

    12. July 2, 2015 / 6:05 am

      Happy Birthday to you. I love the idea of listing your goals for the month. I think breaking them up month to month makes them more attainable.

      • July 2, 2015 / 9:10 am

        Thank you Jen, I find I manage the goals better when they are monthly than yearly or weekly

      Just keep showing up! Managing a blog is not an easy thing to do. It will come naturally and things will fall into the right places–much like tetris.

    14. July 2, 2015 / 3:42 am

      I need to be better at making time for friends – especially the long distance ones. I’m really bad at it!

      • July 2, 2015 / 9:11 am

        At least for you its the long distance ones for me its the close ones, I need to improve

    15. July 1, 2015 / 11:25 pm

      Sounds like you are on the right track! Blog stuff will come along just give it time.

      • July 2, 2015 / 9:12 am

        Thanks Tammilee, I appreciate that.

    16. July 1, 2015 / 7:28 pm

      Looks like you’ll be super busy this month. Have fun on your mini holidays.

      • July 2, 2015 / 9:13 am

        Thanks Izabela, I intend to have fun on my busy mini weekends.

    17. July 1, 2015 / 7:01 pm

      It looks like you got a lot of things to do in July. Its good to make healthy goals. I tend to make goals that completely overwhelm me. I have to schedule some slow down time in there somewhere.

      • July 2, 2015 / 9:18 am

        I think this is why I started with the monthly ones as they are more realistic and when I am not able to accomplish them I move them to the next month.

    18. July 1, 2015 / 2:31 pm

      I love when pople, like you, jots down their plans and goals! It makes it easier to follow though with it.

      • July 1, 2015 / 2:37 pm

        Thank you, I like doing monthly goals

    19. July 1, 2015 / 11:49 am

      You’ve had quite a successful month! It’s such a great feeling to be able to check off those goals. I usually write or plan out daily goals, but I haven’t tried doing it monthly. I may just have to follow your lead!

      • July 1, 2015 / 2:10 pm

        It’s nice when you’re able to check things off the list. I am bad at daily goals so monthly ones work best for me

      Meeting up with other bloggers is FUN. I try to get to as many meet ups and events as I can!

      • July 1, 2015 / 2:35 pm

        It is always fun indeed and nice to meet fellow bloggers

    21. July 1, 2015 / 9:14 am

      I don’t ever sit back and reflect on how the month has gone. Mostly just keep going forward but as you said it is nice to sit back once in a while and reflect on how things have been. You’re got a load of things that you have accomplished even if done partly. Way to go and keep at it!!!

      • July 1, 2015 / 2:36 pm

        Thanks, I am slowly learning the importance of reflecting now and again on life but not dwelling is the key.
