Happy New Month. With less than 100 days left till 2020, I hope you are being kind to yourselves and working extra hard – pushing yourself beyond your limits. May the remainder of the year be filled with laughter, joy and peace – peace in your hearts, peace of mind, more especially peace in your life.
This post is a day late or should I say a few hours, as per usual I post an update on the first day of each quarter, this time around life happened (lol)
My previous quarterly goals:
Working on my faith
This hasn’t been easy. I have started reading the Bible on a daily basis – a chapter a day. Currently reading the book of Job after reading each chapter I try to reflect on it. I make it my daily habit to start each day with prayer and also to end each day on prayer. There is no set prayer I pray, I just say to God what is in my heart.
Being a better friend
I try to check up on my friends every two weeks or so. I do this by sending texts, WhatsApp and even calling. I have recently been letting my guard down and just openly sharing with them about my life. There’s a lot of progress!
Spending money responsibly
Being a girl is expensive. I have spent a lot of money on skincare and hair products over the past few months. Hair lotions, curling butter, face masks, 2 in 1 setting spray and primer, lip balms – you name it, I probably bought it too. I call this good spending habits because I use all the products almost every day. Also, it is a good investment because these products will last me for 6 months if not more. <
Saving 1/3 of every income I receive
I have successfully managed to save at least 30% of my total income this past few months. Saving is really something I pride myself with. A great savings plan leads to a financially secure future and that’s exactly what I want! To be financially secure.
New goals :
Learn more about makeup and beauty
Do the LOC method on my natural hair twice a day (consistency)
Practice gratitude – write down each day something I am grateful for
Go on solo dates
How far are you with your quarterly goals? Do you see any progress?
