February Goals

a-goal-without-a-plan

Hey yall!

Happy February! It’s a new month and, for me, that means new goals. I hope to start posting my goals each month so I have some accountability. If any of yall want join the accountability fun, post your goals in the comments.

Le-Vel
I’m looking to add at least 2 new customers and 1 new promoter to my team. So, if you’re looking for a way to feel amazing all day with a clean, non-jittery energy with no crash, contact me. Or if you’re looking for a way to make some extra money, get in touch with me. Either comment below, reach out to me on Facebook, or check out the Contact page.

Work
I’m planning to keep my work to do list a short as possible. So that means keeping up with everything as it comes in. No putting work off to the side to work on later. And I want to get next month’s calendar done before the last day of the month.

Personal
I want to continue my Miracle Morning routine every day which means waking and getting out of bed at 4:30 am. I need to make sure I include the Exercise in the Life S.A.V.E.R.S. in my Miracle Mornings. I want to focus on drinking more water. I’m going to read at least one book that is out of my comfort zone. And, of course, I’ll read many other books all month long.

Spiritual
I’m continuing my daily devotions with the book, Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young. Each lesson is one I need to hear. I need to attend church every Sunday, not just when I feel like it. Lent begins this month, so I need to decide what I’m giving up and what I’m changing.

Super Secret Plans
This month I’m going to start saving money for my super secret plans that only 2 people know about. I get so excited thinking about these plans that I want to tell the whole world, but I can’t yet!

Those are my goals for the month.  I have plans in place to make sure each goal is achieved. Hopefully it will be a successful month!

What’s Saving My Life Right Now

list.2

Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy has posed the question, “What is saving your life right now?” It may seem like an odd question, but she says it’s all too easy to think of the things that are going wrong right now. But what’s going right? What are the small comforts or big events that help you keep your sanity during these cold and dreary winter days? I’m linking up to discuss what’s saving my life. I’ll give you a small portion of my list.

  1. My Traveler’s Notebook. I would be lost without it. I use it as a calendar, planner, notebook, to do list, goal planner, and many other things

  2. My Miracle Morning routine. I feel so peaceful and ready for my day after completing the routine. I’m no longer rushing to get out the door and angry that I’m going to be late.

  3. Physical books. Last year I spent so much time reading on my iPad that I forgot the pleasure of reading a physical book. Nothing compares to it.

  4. Chai tea. My husband bought me some amazing chai tea from Teavana. It’s blissful.
  5. Space heaters. I discovered that putting my space heater at work under my desk is most effective for warming me, especially when I get a cold draft from the front door opening.

My One Word

myoneword_logo

Peace
/pēs/
noun

freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.
“you can while away an hour or two in peace and seclusion”

synonyms:

tranquility, calm, restfulness, peace and quiet,peacefulness, quiet, quietness

 

I know it’s been a while since I last posted but I went from having no inspiration to having too many ideas to write about! I’ll start with my One Word for 2016. I mentioned in a previous post that I usually choose a word to center my whole year around. I pray about it and meditate on it and eventually the word comes to me. This year’s word took much longer to be chosen than in the past. I’m hoping that’s a good sign and means I really need to pay attention to it.

Peace-Quotes-43

My word for this year is peace. It’s very fitting considering the devotional I received over Christmas is Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young. Add in my Miracle Morning routine and my mornings have become very peaceful lately. Now to add peace to the rest of my day.

I’ve got some super secret plans in the works to help me find that peace I’m looking for in my work life, but it’s a very long term plan. Now I just need to find ways to be more peaceful in my relationships and home life. This is another time that prayer and meditation are helpful.

So, do you have one word for the year? Let me know in the comments!

New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year yall!


Do you have New Year’s Resolutions? I don’t. I have goals. And plans…lots of plans. One of my goals is to complete the Miracle Morning Life SAVERS every morning. That book was inspiring and had a huge impact on me. Another goal is to read a devotional every day from the book I mentioned in my last post. Career-wise, I want to become a 12k VIP with Le-Vel by the end of the year. So if you’re ready to Thrive, let me know! These are just a few of the goals I have for the year. I’ll be making goals each month, also.

Have you had trouble sticking with your resolutions you make each year? Maybe you need to make goals like I do. What do you want to happen this year? What are some steps you can take each month, each week, each day to make those goals happen? If you need help making goals, feel free to comment or message me! I love helping other people! And if you need help meeting your goals, whether they’re financial, health, or fitness related, I can help with that too!

Another thing I tend to do each year is pick one word to center the whole year around. I haven’t chosen my word for 2016 yet. But I’ll continue to meditate and pray about it and it will come to me. I don’t like to rush into picking my word, I like for it to be meaningful. If you want to try it and need some suggestions, check out myoneword.org.

Sunday Devotions 12/27/15

Hey yall!


I would like to add some different features to the blog and the first one I want to add is Sunday Devotions. I want to talk each Sunday about the devotions I read the past week and what I plan to read the upcoming week.


I’ve been fairly slack this week regarding devotions and it’s shown in my stress levels. I only managed to read one from Our Daily Bread with my husband on Christmas Day. I really need to get back into the habit of reading a devotion and the Bible every morning.


My husband and I read Our Daily Bread from October 2013. The devotion was titled Immeasurably More and the Bible verses to go along with it were Ephesians 3:14-21. It really was what I needed to hear at that time since I was feeling a bit down.


I plan to start reading Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young. It’s a 365 daily devotional that I’ll start on January 1. It looks interesting and it’s a very lovely book with leather cover. I’m hoping it will help me to start my days peacefully.

What are you reading for your daily devotions? Do you have a book? Do you use an app? Do you use Our Daily Bread like my husband?

My 30th Birthday

This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive compensation if you make a purchase using the links.


Hey yall!


I just celebrated my 30th birthday yesterday! My birthday was wonderful. I celebrated with my family at Olive Garden and had a delicious dinner. I received many wonderful presents from my family. My husband gave me a Yeti cup (THE BOSS 30 oz.Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Tumbler) he had cerakoted blue with my name stenciled in silver. My mom, of course, gave me a book – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: The Illustrated Edition (Harry Potter, Book 1). It’s gorgeous! All the pictures are so well done. And the details are amazing! Everything – the characters, places, settings – it all looks more like what the book describes than the movies ever managed. Then you get spreads that take two whole pages like Newt Scamander’s Guide to Trolls during the Mountain Troll scene. The whole book is just beautiful! I also received a gift card to Amazon that I’ll be using to purchase the book The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM) that I mentioned before. I’m hoping to really transform my whole outlook after reading the book.

I used to think being 30 was old and my life would be over. Now, I believe my 30s will be even better than my 20s! I’ve got my Thrive to help me feel amazing and my Le-Vel business is just getting started. My marriage is in a great place and I’m looking forward to seeing what my daughter comes up with next. Overall I feel fantastic. I think I’m coming into the best season of my life.

What I’m Reading: December 12, 2015 Edition

Hey yall! I mentioned before that I was reading A Christmas Carol, well, I changed my mind. I just can’t manage to sink into it and get lost in it like I normally do. So, I gave up on it. But that’s ok because I’ve read it before, it may have been years ago, but I’ve read it. This week I found myself gravitating toward self help books. Mainly Marie Kondo’s The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and the Make Over Your Mornings ecourse by Crystal Paine.


One of the first steps in the MOYM course is to tell someone you are committed to doing the course at a certain time each day. Well, I’m letting everyone reading this know, I am committing myself to reading the workbook and watching the videos for the next 14 days each evening at 8:30, or as soon as I put my daughter to bed.


I’ve also been reading other people’s blogs about blogging so I could become better at blogging. Let me just say, there’s a lot of good information out there and a lot of underdeveloped information. Some people would say you need to do things, but not show you how. But I did find some really good blogs, especially The Budget Mama. She may be known for writing about financial matters, but her posts about blogging gave me some really good insights.

The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM) by Hal Elrod was recently recommended to me. I’m adding that to my list of To Be Read. In the meantime, does anyone have any comments about it? Also, I’m open to any suggestions to add to my TBR list.

Christmas Stories to Put You in the Spirit

Hey yall! Today has been crazy busy and I still have much to do once I leave work. My daughter wants a Barbie Dream House (the medium one mommy!) for Christmas so I need to convince her in the meantime to get rid of some toys. I hope to do that tonight. And I need to do some deep cleaning in preparation of Christmas parties.

I’m still working on overcoming my writing block. I don’t have much to say but I wanted to share this with you. I mentioned in my last post I love to read Christmas stories and if you do too, here’s a wonderful post with some truly inspirational non-fiction Christmas books: 7 True Holiday Tales to Put You in the Christmas Spirit. Let me know in the comments what your favorite Christmas story is!

What I’m Reading

Hey yall! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! I thought I’d let you know what I’m currently reading.
Right now I’m in full-swing Christmas mode, so it’s back to the classics with A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

For my Bible study group, I’m reading The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst.

I haven’t gotten very far in either, so I can’t give my opinion yet. But I’ll definitely let you know what I think! If you’ve read either, let me know what you think!

So, I’ve been writing this post for several days and I’ve come to the conclusion, I no longer know how to write longer than a Facebook post. It hurts my English major heart to know I have this block. I’ll just have to retrain my brain so I can come up with some good posts for yall.

Thanks for reading!
