GoalsGoals are very important to have. They let you focus on what you want and allow you to achieve the steps you need to move forward and complete this goal you have set yourself. In order to achieve these goals, you must first set them. I like to write them out and memorialize them so I a) don’t forget and b) don’t give up. By sharing my goals with you, I hope that it pushes me to complete them and have support while doing so!

It is also important to note that life changes. While I may have a goal right now, in six months I might be in a completely different place mentally, emotionally, and physically. My goals will change and grow just as I do. If I don’t complete a goal that is important to me right now but in six months my situation in life has changed, that’s okay. I refuse to limit or make my future self do something she does not wish for.

I have broken my goals down into three categories. 1. Personal. These goals will be personal to me. They will be what I want to happen in my future. 2. College. These goals will be about my college life, about classes and organizations and GPA. Anything that would fall under education or extracurriculars. 3. Blog. As a new blogger, I have many goals. I would love to share those with you and be very transparent about me and my blog.
