When you’re a multi-passionate writer, goal-setting is imperative. Otherwise, you’ll end up saying yes to everything and, most likely, accomplishing nothing.(more…)
Because I was a teacher for 10 years, August always feels like January — a start of a new year, a chance for new beginnings.
Even with all that’s going on in the world and in my life, I am excited about August just as I have been in years before.
I want this August to be a month about leveling up, both professionally and personally, and I’ve set some goals and made some plans to help me do just that.(more…)
For me, this month is all about hitting the reset button. I reset my 2020 goals. I revamped the See Jane Write website. And I’m doing the work to reset my relationship with God.
I’ve also been resetting my 40 Before 40 list.
Back in February when I turned 39 I shared a list of 40 things I want to do before my 40th birthday.
Then COVID-19 ended the world as we knew it.
Shortly after that I learned I would need to undergo chemotherapy. (In case you’re new around here, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January, but initially told I would only need surgery and radiation for treatment.)
COVID, cancer, and chemo obviously mean that many of my 40 Before 40 plans — like traveling and hosting in-person events — simply can’t happen. And for a while, I was going to just ditch the whole project. But that felt too much like giving up and that’s something I refuse to do.
So here’s my updated 40 Before 40 List.(more…)
July is here which means we’re halfway through this dumpster fire of a year. Like the rest of the world, I’m dealing with the emotional stress of living in a society plagued by two pandemics – COVID-19 and racism. And on top of that, I’m battling breast cancer.
As much as I want to cancel 2020, I can’t. So, I must find a way to survive it and perhaps even thrive in it instead.
So, my theme for the month is RESET.(more…)
If you’ve known me for a long time or even a little while, you know I’m obsessed with goal setting. As a friend of mine once said, my goals have goals. And she’s right. I’m a goal digger.
It’s April 1, so, of course, I’ve set some goals for the new month and the new quarter.
But I almost didn’t.(more…)
