Six (and a half-ish) months in, I wanted to see how I was doing with my 2019 goals. No, not resolutions, goals. This is also the time to see what goals need to be altered and what plans I can make to achieve the rest of it. And, of course, I invite you to go through your own 2019 goals and plan out what you need.
First of all, what were my goals for 2019? Well:
- Complete one bucket list goal
- Start an etsy shop
Be part of a production Change wardrobe
hair cutand dye
- Go out of country
- Send out work five times
- Complete a 5k or 10k
- Able to do regular pushups
- 50 books
- Create a routine that works
- Create a vision board
Deep organize through everything
I was able to do a few things already. I was actually in two productions, which was awesome. I did change my entire wardrobe (and I’ll be making a post about that next week). I organized every nook and cranny of my shit. And I drastically changed my hair, in which you’ll have to enjoy this rendition of since I have no proper pic as of yet.
Now, how about the rest?
I always try to fulfill a bucket list goal every year. I actually have a plan for that, so I should be able to complete it at the end of September. I’ve sent my work out three times now; I have a plan for one before November, and I just need to figure out one more which will just use a little research, so no biggie. I know what I want to color my hair, but it won’t be until at the very earliest August to do so. I have an idea for a vision board, so I should be able to finish it before the month is out.
Here’s where things get to be kind of a bummer. There’s a couple of goals that probably won’t happen. An etsy shop takes a lot of time and mindfulness, two things I haven’t been able to provide, and probably won’t be able to provide the rest of the year. The rest of the summer is going to be too busy prepping for the fall, which is going to be even crazier. There won’t be time for it, so I’m probably gonna cut that from my goal list. I’d love to go out of country, but unfortunately my big trip is going to an orientation in a different state on the other side of the country (a trip I’ve taken quite a few times now). I won’t take it off the list in case I manage to run away to Canada for a second, but it’s very probable I won’t be able to do it.
Now for my ongoing stuff. I’m about 3/5 into my 50 books challenge, so that’s going swimmingly. I’m trying to work on fitness and the ability to do a 5k or 10k is not too far away. Pushups are an odd goal to some, but no one is allowed to tell you what should not be a goal in your life. I can’t do pushups because I lack upper bod strength, and my body is built differently. I just want to be able to do five regular pushups and be proud doing it. Still can barely do a knee pushup, though…And as for the routine, it’s going through trials right now. I can’t figure what works for me, but I’m trying and that’s what matters.
Long story short, I’m doing okay, but could be better. I’m still going, though, which is what matters. Maybe we’ll revisit this again at the end of the year.
And how did you do? Doing well? I’m so proud of you! Not doing so well? That’s okay! I’m proud of you for trying. And this is a good time to start again, revise and move on. You can do it!
