Goal Setting

📚I’m reading a book called Finish by Jon Acuff and something really stuck out to me that I wanted to share with you!

👆🏼We set goals for ourselves like I want to lose 10 pounds this month, or I want to write a blog post that is 300 words long 5 days a week, or I want to run a 5K next month!

❓So what happens when we don’t accomplish those goals? When you only lose 7 pounds, or you wrote 2 short blog posts this week, or you ran 1/2 of a mile? You immediately think that you have failed and from here on out you don’t even try to accomplish any of those things!

👉🏼But what if instead we set smaller goals that were more attainable? Don’t you think that if we set smaller goals that we would accomplish them more often? And if we accomplish those goals and set new goals and then we accomplish those goals and we keep repeating that process, then in the end wouldn’t we be crushing way more goals? We would be so much farther ahead by setting smaller goals than if we set big goals that we “failed” at so we just quit!!

👊🏼This just really resonated with me so I wanted to share it with you! Do with it what you wish but get out there and set some small goals! 😃

🎉And as always, thanks for reading my blog! I hope today has an amazing you 😃

Thank you!

I just want to say thank you to everyone for the visits to my blog. I know I’ve been absent for quite awhile but that’s going to change!

I love blogging but sometimes I struggle with what to say, when to say it or how to say what’s on my mind. I overthink everything that I have in my mind that I want to write and in the end I end up not posting anything!

I’m working on letting go and now making things so complicated!

I always think that no one is paying attention anyway and then I log in and find that I have lots of views today and I realize that people are watching!

So starting this week I’m going to commit to writing a blog post at least once a week!

Thanks again for hanging in there even in my absence!

I hope today has an amazing you!!
