In my last blog, I mentioned how more consistent I will be with blogging and photography this year. I also mentioned how 2018 will be filled with new blessings and new beginnings. There are three goals I want to accomplish this year and I’m not letting anything or anybody hold me back. I’m going to start from the bottom of the list to the top.
5. Getting a Driver’s License
After years of taking the bus and cab, I think it’s time for me to get an automobile. Majority of my money was going towards Metro cards, Uber, and local cabs. I took my permit almost three years ago and I have been procrastinating to take driving classes. However, this year puts an end to procrastination. I’m going to start enrolling to a driving school and take those lessons.
4. Going Back to The Gym
I have been struggling with my weight lately and eating junk food due to stress and depression. This year, I want to shed off some pounds and change my diet for the sake of my health. I will start off working out at home then get a membership at a gym nearby. I want to start going to the gym not only to lose weight but also to reduce stress. I want to feel more confident with my body and be more healthy this year. At one point, I’m also thinking about doing a detox and cleansing my body. I just want to live right, be healthy, and look for myself.
3. Become More Consistent in Blogging and Photography
Last year, I was on and off consistent with my photography work because of distractions. I wasn’t really into it because I was dealing with work and family issues. There are days when I think about my Canon Rebel T5 camera collecting dust, I just feel ashamed. Why did i say ashamed? It’s because I felt like I bought a very valuable camera for nothing and felt like maybe the photography was not for me. I love using my camera but I never had time to use it. This year, my camera is definitely going to be my best friend. Blogging is another thing I want to be stay steady with. I want to be an inspiration for other young women there especially who can relate to the things I been through. I’m also going start making more vlogs and inspirational videos and uploading them on my YouTube channel. Make sure you guys stay tuned!!
One of the most amazing things I want to do this year is to travel around the world. I feel like I need to explore and experience new things I have never experienced before in my life. Going on a Caribbean cruise is definitely on my bucket list. I already been to Jamaica but would love to return for a nice getaway, relaxing on a beach. Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Barbados, and Turks and Caicos are next on my list. This summer, God willing, I will be exploring.
1. Having a Better Relationship with God
The most important thing I want to focusing on this year is being closer to God. I feel like my mindset and my life would be more positive if I communicate more with Him. I attend church almost every Sunday but have not really taking some time to meditate and pray. I also want to start reading the bible more and starting my day reading a scripture. God has been pouring down so many blessings on me and I thank Him. I just want to stay positive and trust God.
With these goals soon to be accomplished, 2018 will be a very awesome year!!!!
