2020 Goal Update

This year has gone by painfully slow, yet unbelievably fast. It’s been a while since I last posted on here, or even written at all, so I thought that it’s time for an update on my goals for 2020. With COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement, there have been changes to my goals for the year.

PERSONAL POLICIES

If I can’t change something, there is no use worrying about it.

Choose courage over comfort

Put my health over other people’s feelings. 

These are policies that have helped me a lot this year. My mental health has not been the best this year, but following these “policies” have made it a lot easier for me to make certain decisions and have gotten some stress off my shoulders.

GOALS

Rebrand this website by July – I’m still working on this. Working to make this site match what I have planned for it.

Pay off my debt by March – While it wasn’t by March, I was still able to complete this goal. However, I’d be lying if I said I’ve been maintaining it low…

Get an internship with a company I support – I had this planned for the second half of the year, but I am not sure if it still aligns with my goals. I already have so much on my plate plus being in the middle of a pandemic, I no longer see this happening.

Travel to three new different places – Well, this has completely changed. I still have a trip planned for December to visit my husband’s family in Guadalajara.

Get straight A’s for the spring semester – While I didn’t get straight A’s, my grades were better off this past semester than the one before.

This spread has helped me stay on track to meet my goals. It breaks them down into monthly actions.

ONGOING GOALS

Enjoy the little things and capture them – I’ve been doing a little better on this, but I still have some work to do.

Be there for my friends, physically and emotionally – I can’t be there for my friends physically anymore, but it is important to reach out to friends especially during this difficult time.

Accept my emotions as they come and go – Viewing emotions as visitors is definitely something I have been working on lately.

Make decisions and stick to them – Being indecisive was something “cute and quirky” but as I get older, I recognize the importance of being firm with my decisions. The personal policies I chose for this year have helped me with this aspect.
