These Damn Goals

by ironborn· April 26, 2017· in Uncategorized· 0 comments
If you follow me you know that I set goals every month.     Sometimes my goals are within reach, and I know I’m going to crush them.   Other times, and more frequently, they’re a little bit more aggressive.   My April goals were aggressive to say the least.  I set them super high, feeling intimidated by their volume and intensity.  Honestly, I kind of approached them with the idea that I couldn’t achieve them – which is a PLAN TO FAIL!   And fail I did … or at least I lacked accomplishment this month.     I barely hit any of the goals at 100% and kinda sorta feel like a failure.     But guess what?,   That doesn’t mean that I am going to shy away from aggressive goals in the coming months.     In fact, I’m still shooting for the stars.  Because, why not, right?   I know that my lack of achievement was completely related to my lack of effort.  And I tried really, really hard but there is always room for improvement.   So, what’s the plan?   Kick ass in May … there is no other option 🙂

Sometimes silence is just so much better than words.     You see, words can be so powerful .. or not.  It really just depends on how they’re perceived.   And women often times take words so very differently than men.     For many women, all positive words can quickly be wiped away by one negative comment.  And in place of a negative comment could totally have been silence.       Take last weekend for example.  I was at a wedding for a friend – it was beautiful by the way.  I wasn’t really very comfortable; I’m not exactly feeling like I rock the prego bod.     There were many people who had very nice things to say about my outfit and my pregnant bod.  It’s wonderful to receive compliments, and I so very much appreciate them, but when you don’t believe them yourself, it’s hard to take them to heart.   So when someone offers a negative remark like “you’re going to be huge, you’re big already”, that shit right there goes straight to the heart & the head.     It doesn’t matter how hard we appear on the outside, some of us ladies are really […]

Priorities, we all have them.   These days, more than ever before, sleep has been a priority for me.  Getting in my 8 hours is a must, especially since I know my days of that are limited.     One person’s priorities doesn’t hold a higher value than another person’s.  All priorities are really equal and will be reflected in the outcomes you see in your daily life.     For instance, if you prioritize work, you’ll find you may be financially free but have no time to spend the money you’ve earned.  Or if you prioritize spending time with your friends, you probably have solid relationships but may be lacking in achieving some of your other goals.     You see, priorities are directly attached to goals, or the lack of goals.  If you’re focused on achieving something, your priorities will be reflected.  If you lack focus and drive to any one particular thing, you’ll probably find that your priorities are all over the place or are very misguided.     Being pregnant has drastically shifted my priorities.  Pre-Pregnancy, my priorities were work, gym, & my husband – in that order.  I spent the majority of my time at […]
