Goal counter: April ✨

Hello, and welcome to another…

April has been a fantastic month! I cannot complain. I’ve been reevaluating all areas of my life and spending more time in nature. I didn’t read as much as I would’ve liked to, but nevertheless, I managed to read a few books.

Anyways, these are the short-term blogging goals I had for this month:

* I actually read 6 classics including “Around the World in 80 Days”. I did not get to read as much as I would’ve liked, but I read a total of 13 books this month for a total of 64 books so far this year. 

* Unfortunately, I’m yet to lay the groundwork for Exodus and it’s quite irritating given the time I’ve had. I keep veering off track, but I’ll try to resume Bible studies soon. 

* Done! A lot more work to be done, but it’s good to get a head start on things.

This GIF is a mood! I think it’s going to be a new fave!

* Done! Book reviews are becoming a task, so I’ll be attempting to write shorter ones in the near future. 

* This was also done. I’m still getting around the new theme, but it’s the one that the Lord led me to, so I’m grateful to have this new theme. The header is a peacock and the background (if you can see it) features dragonflies, two creatures that I currently adore.

* I actually wanted to start the kitchen adventures category, but I ended up with a totally new one: Coffee Shots in which I’ll upload short thoughts, poems, or stories that are coffee-related.

* I did not find the time to do this although I do have one in mind, so I’ll try to look at it soon.

* Actually, I started writing a review for a TV show but abandoned it midway. It’s sitting nicely in drafts.

Although I did not get everything accomplished, I was delighted with all that was done. I pray that you’re doing well by God’s grace and that your May will be spiritually blessed.

God’s peace be with you.

Goal counter: January ✨

Hello, and welcome to another…

This is where I talk bloggy stuff. Give little updates, etc. Today, we’ve come to the end of a wonderful start to 2020 both in the virtual world and in the land of the living. This month, I debuted a new sign-off signature for LPM and have actually gone on to create a few others which would make their debut in the Lord’s timing. I also started using a planner and…

…I did not stick to it. Yep, your girl started off using it just fine, then revert back to the sheer randomness when it comes to posting. So, instead, I listed a few short-termed goals that I wanted to achieve this month. Et voila!:

* I did not know how my reading was going to start off this year, so I listed 5 books to read. I ended up reading 17 books, just 2 more than Jan 2019! I get to cross about 8 books off my TBR for the others weren’t on it.

* I plan to restudy Exodus soon. This month, I did not get the time to start for I was working on a Genesis recap.

* This was accomplished: Gratitude is an Attitude. It’s where I write thank you entries on a daily basis. I’m currently looking into another writing format, but so far, I am happy with the way the entries are coming along and I thank God for it.

* I believe I’ve found it! In the right time, I’ll make the change if it’s to be.

* Happy that this was accomplished for I don’t blog for an entire week anymore. I hope to do this once a month for the rest of the year.

* Although this one is crossed off, I did manage to introduce a new category: Heart Reflections. I did not realize it until I was going back through the entries that I posted for this month. Originally, I had plans to introduce Adventures in the Kitchen, but all things work for good.

* I got the majority completed so bless God! 💙

* Accomplished! It’ll be introduced within the new theme if all goes according to plan.

In February, I want to direct my attention to reviews for books, TV shows, and movie trailers if there’s time to do so. Who knows? Maybe I’ll dedicate a week to do so.

God’s peace be with you.

Day 30: List your goals for the next 30 days.

I don’t have many goals for the next 30 days, but to keep walking with God, putting in more reading time, writing, keeping up with blogging somewhat, and perhaps getting back to exercising. The Lord knows I need to stop being lazy when it comes to taking care of my physical health.

So we’ve come to the end of this challenge. I was happy to complete it in its entirety and I thank you for joining me. God bless. 💙

Challenges/Tags/Fun Stuff

Looks like I’m doing a challenge this month after all!

I am about to participate in the #WritersLifeIGJune hosted by @madetowrite on Instagram and I’ve decided to also post my answers here. It’s the 6th day so I have a bit of catching up to do.

 :

DAY 1: June Writing Goals

^ The first episode of my Sanctimonious series

^ At least 7-10 short stories

^ 3-4 chapters of my Fall love story, SWAPPED.

DAY 2: Writing Utensils

 :

The laptop is my go-to because I type fast and I get more work done. I am a pen girl! I love pens and notebooks a lot.

DAY 3: Resources for Writers

 :

I am yet to finish this book, but I have a confession to make: I don’t like reading many of these materials. I prefer to read other writers’ work, see the mistakes, learn from them. Does this make any sense?

DAY 4: Coffee vs Tea

This one is a no-brainer, eh?

DAY 5: Movies for Writers

 :

Happy Ending was one of my favorite movies centered around a writer dealing with writer’s block and his muse. Saif Ali Khan rocked both roles. Johnny Depp in Secret Window was pure insanity! I tend to be drawn to movies that feature a writer.

DAY 6: Writing Space

 :

Would you believe me if I tell you that at current I do not have a personal writing space? I write anywhere I can. At the desk, on the bed, in my head…

Take time to reflect

Sometimes we need to take time out of our busy schedules and just sit and reflect.

Ask yourself questions like: Am I where I want to be at this stage/age? Do I have any goals/dreams for 2017? What am I doing to achieve them? Do I like the person looking back at me from the mirror? Am I fulfilled? Am I completed?

Reflecting on the past and present can be beneficial for your future.
