My New Instagram Plan

For over a year now I’ve been setting a goal every month to post a new Instagram Reel every day. And every month I fail.

I usually start strong but by day four or so I slip and then I don’t post another Reel for a month!

We all know that consistency is key when it comes to nearly anything in life. So if I can’t consistently post daily Reels I need to figure out what I can do and stick with that.

So here’s my new Instagram plan.


23 Questions for 2023

A new year is almost here and while I plan to spend much of these final weeks of 2022 relaxing and hanging out with friends and family. But the goal digger in me is also plotting plans for 2023. 

Near the end of the year, I always take time to ask myself a series of questions to help me set goals for the year to come. 

If you need help setting your goals for 2023, be sure to join me for Write the Vision: 2023 #GoalDigger Workshop. The workshop is set for Sunday, December 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. CT. And it’s FREE!

Here are 23 questions I’m journaling about in preparation for 2023. 


Things I’m Grateful for That Money Can’t Buy

When I thumb through my journal and look at the things I often give thanks for in my daily gratitude lists, I’m struck by how much of those lists are filled with material possessions such as my home and my car. Even when I give thanks for experiences such as trips to New York or to Orange Beach, I recognize that these things couldn’t happen without money.

When I write about how wonderful it feels to walk peacefully in my neighborhood, I also acknowledge that it’s a blessing to be able to afford to live in a quiet suburb.

So today when writing in my journal, I challenged myself to express gratitude for five things that money can’t buy.


My Thanksgiving Journaling Tradition

A few years ago I started a Thanksgiving journaling tradition. While I typically list at least five things I’m grateful for each morning, on Thanksgiving morning I challenge myself to write my gratitude list for five minutes instead.
