New Year, Bigger Dreams!

A new year gives me 365 chances to work towards my dreams. Every year I dream of all the things I want to do, places to go and adventures to have! But, like most people I don’t always get to accomplish all of them. This year, I vow to not go another year without working toward my dreams. Last year, I was able to start my dream of traveling more and having greater adventures, but some health issues prevented me from doing more.  I will go into that further in another post.

2017 is MY YEAR!!  I am dreaming much bigger and I can tell this is going to be my best year yet. I have so much planned and I can’t wait to get started.  With that being said here are my goals/dreams for 2017!

SAVE MORE!

This can be a struggle for everyone, it seems the more you try to save the less you have. This year I will be saving money by any means necessary, yes it is that deep! If I have to work more hours, take my lunch to work, cut down on my thrift store shopping sprees, lol, whatever it takes. To achieve my goals/dreams I must be smarter with my money.

BE MORE CONSISTENT

Consistency is the number one reason most people fail at whatever they inspire to do. I started the journey to consistency last year, with regards to my YouTube channel.  That has worked out very well, but this year I need it to spill over into my personal life as well. I am very inconsistent to the point I should be ashamed at not doing the simplest things every day. Let’s just say this is a work in progress for sure.

TIME MANAGEMENT

This is the biggest struggle for me in my personal life. When I am at home, I mismanage my time to the point of embarrassment. I put off, procrastinate and just plain ignore all types of responsibilities. Not just things I have to get done, but thing I want to do just for fun.  I’m thinking about creating a super simple schedule for when I get home and trying it out for 30 days. According to Google it takes 21 days to form a habit, but even that is being disputed to 66 day. So I have decided to meet almost half way with 30 and see how it goes! Wish me luck! Here’s to being more productive in 2017!

TRAVEL, TRAVEL, TRAVEL

Singing “I’m leaving on a jet plane don’t know when I’ll be back again”!!! Traveling has been a long time dream of mine. I have been trying to travel for the past 3-4 years and it never seems to work out! But in 2017, it is going to happen, no more excuses about money or time! Cutting down on all non-essential expenses to save a nest egg for travel, is a must. Applying for a passport for international travel is on the to-do list. I am super excited to say I have already booked my first trip for May of this year. NEW YORK city here I come!

  1. This post was amazing and definitely needed. My goals for 2017 are pretty similar to yours, actually. I want to eliminate a lot of the struggle that was a part of my life last year. I want to be consistent with my writing. I want to challenge myself. I want to travel more. I want to have more money in my wallet and bank account!

    1. Thanks Audrey. Yes, I think most of the goals I listed are similar to a lot of others, and makes it super relatable. Good luck with your goes this year, wishing you the best.

  2. Hey Keoshia,

    You’ve set some nice goals. I definitely know I need to work on my consistency and time management this year because me lacking in those departments is usually what holds me back. I hope you accomplish all of these!
