1. Accepting what’s happened this year
Not sure about how your 2018 has gone so far, but I have had so many life events happen!
-My dad was in the hospital for 2 months (up until 1 week before my wedding) Thank GOD he’s doing well!
-I’ve gotten married to my college sweetheart of 9 years!
-We’ve Moved into an apartment together
-Annnnnnnnnnd….. We’re expecting our first child! 👶🏽
2018 has not been a breeze! Getting the good with the bad, so far I’ve survived some of the toughest challenges I’ve ever dealt with! But those challenges only make you stronger! It’s time to stand and make the end this year strong!
2. Goal setting for 2019.
Nows a good time to rewrite the vision board. What goals did you accomplish this year? Caught yourself slipping on some of those 2018 resolutions? That’s okay! Now is the time where you should start to re-envision your goals! Have your goals changed? Sometimes this happens! Write down what you want to achieve by the end of this year and a few goals to reach going into the new year.
3. Prepare for the changing seasons and prepare for the holidays
Don’t wait until the last minute to prepare for the seasons to change. Prepare for the cold to hot, hot to cold days coming ahead. The two faced weather will have anyone fooled! Also be prepared to grab any medicine and stock up on vitamin C!
Also don’t wait until the last minute to prepare for the holidays! If you go “Trick or Treating” grab your costume early. If you celebrate Thanksgiving, don’t wait until the last minute to grab your food off the shelves! And if you celebrate Christmas, don’t wait until the last minute to buy gifts, because the stores are like war zones! I PRAY to have my Christmas shopping done by Thanksgiving.
4. Practice good habits to take into the new year
Set some very short term goals that are obtainable for the rest of the year! Start practicing good habits. It takes 30 days to form a habit. Get it in your system now and you’ll have no problem with that goal in 2019.
5. Enjoy every single day
Enjoy each and every single day. The new year will be here before you know it. You only get to live each day once. Enjoy the moment.
