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.
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.
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.
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.
