Goals For The Rest Of The Year

After a month away from the blog I’ve went through a small transformation, kind of like a butterfly wiggling out of its cocoon. It was uncomfortable, confining, and scary but I think it’s for the best. 

I shed a relationship which I think is better as a friendship. I did learn a lot from the time we were together that I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life. I also relocated jobs, I landed a full time at the beginning of October which I love. The company is two companies under one roof so it’s super fast paced and there was and still is a lot to learn.

Sitting back reflecting on the year made me realize I’ve pretty much been living on autopilot too, just going through the motions day after day.

Goals For The Rest Of The Year #goals #lifestyle

As for goals to achieve throughout the rest of the year:

• To become emotionally aware

• Keep trying to heal emotional wounds

• Becoming more comfortable and confident with myself

• Putting the focus back on freelance writing

This year has been tough, dad passed away in February which took a lot out of me and I’ve been struggling a lot since then but I am trying to deal with all the feelings that come with loosing someone, not just anyone but a parent. It all happened so suddenly, if I knew then what I know now I would’ve forced him to seek out help. I’m still trying to pick up all the pieces of my broken heart. November is also his birthday month, so there is that too.

I’m shifting into a healthier lifestyle, everything that happened this year made me realize ya only get one body and one life (as you’re not a cat), it needs to be nurtured and looked after with care not stuffed with greasy cheeseburgers and pizzas. The cooler weather makes it easier to get out for walks on the regular, which is the plan. 

I have an amazing freelance client who I’ve been working with all year, she is kind of the perfect client actually. She’s been so understanding throughout the projects we’ve worked on. She offered me a huge project that i am very lucky to have the opportunity. I want to settle down, focus, and create killer content.

  1. God bless you Nicole your new job and my condolences to you regarding your father and I hope that you continue to find solace and peace and find a way to adapt and carry the best memories that you possibly can have you and your dad forever in your heart. I lost my dad quite a few years ago and my Mom 2 years ago and only now I can really talk about her in a positive way without tearing up about it. But there are moments where yes of course it will never go away completely and you don’t want it to but when you can carry with you all of the wonderful elements that your dad brought to your life then it will help make the koppen easier. I also made a list of all the different ways in which my parents affected my life and things I learned from them individually that I can pass on to other people. And in doing so it’s not like they’re not gone completely because their memory and influence lives on. I will be cheering for you on all of your goals and I want to say thank you for being such a dedicated follower on all my websites I look forward to reading from you more in the future. You’re kind I wish we lived closer because I know we’d get along very well.

  3. So pleased to hear that you’re putting yourself first this year. I took a year out like that a few years ago and it was the best thing I’ve done for myself. The positive impacts have rippled out to other areas of my life too, so it’s all a huge bonus! You just have to remember why you’re doing it when things get tough. You can do it! Best of luck to you x
