2017 Blog and Personal Goals

Hello to you all.  For many of us, it is the first work day after the new year.  Back to the grind after a long relaxing holiday weekend of doing nothing.  It is also back to blogging and getting things done.  I am feeling positive about this year.  My 2017 calendar and planner are ready to be filled.  It is time to work hard and to make dreams come true.  And since I am softy for all things girlie and pink, I was completely ecstatic when I came across this pink planner and black and white calendar at target the other day.  Of course these charming note cards had to part of my inspiration board too.  Nothings inspires me more than glancing over my desk and seeing all these lovely items.  They just make me smile.

I don't believe in New Year's resolutions because we all know how those end up...  I do however, believe in setting achievable goals.  Daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals and yearly goals.  I always give it my best but if I don't reach a certain goals, I know with an honest heart that I gave it my best. 

I have spent some time thinking about my goals for 2017 and I have already decided that it is time to work harder on my blog.   I know that with a full time job, it is going to be extremely challenging but success never comes easy.  I know that with time and support from fellow bloggers, I will reach my blog goals.  

2016 brought new connections and opportunities for me via Instagram.  I feel extremely blessed and grateful to have these established companies believe in me and my work.  So I am definitely looking forward to strengthening those connections this year.  I know that blogging is a lot of work and sometimes, when we are ready to give it all up, something wonderful and amazing happens so never give up.  Keep working and in due time, good things will come your way.   Build blogging relationships and participate in a few blog hops. It is such a wonderful way to connect with other bloggers.  And above all, post about the things you love and which make you happy.  After all, it is about enjoying the process.
