Blogtober 8th: October Goals

First thing's first.

I'm SO happy that I've made it through the initial week of Blogtober. It's been an amazing experience so far, & I've coasted through it with no obstacles. I'm seriously looking forward to the rest of this month.

Speaking of, I've been blogging for almost two years now & I've learned so much on my journey. I'll admit that it got a little rocky, because my main focus is & always has been working & getting my education. I was more into putting school & work first than into trying to find a healthy balance. Finding a balance was risky. It meant the rise of the burning "what if" questions that linger underneath the surface. Questions like, "What if I try giving more time to the blog & fall behind in school?" or, "What if I completely lose focus on the blog because of my work schedule? Then what?"

The balance is so necessary, because it's the only way I'm going to be able to do it all & get where I want to be. Pushing myself is what I need. 

Committing to Blogtober has pushed me to find that balance, which is one of the main reasons why I decided to do it. & come to find out, it works! School is great, the blog is great, & my work performance is the best it's been. The best part is, I'm not even the least bit stressed. I'm honestly amazed at it all. 

Okay, on to the goals.

Normally, when you see monthly goals from a blogger, they have specific numbers for their blogs, social medias, & things. For a long time, I thought I had to have the same types of goals, too. But that's following the trend & the crowd & just everything that everyone else does. BIG NO. Plus, I truly feel like those tends to put a strain on a person. At some point it starts to feel like more of a chore that is being forced &/or manipulated. All this on top of the fact that it’s super disheartening when the specifics aren’t reached. 

So my only goal for October is to simply grow — in every area. On the blog & personally. Letting things flow naturally without trying to force them is way less stressful. I'm going to keep working hard, doing what I do best. The rest will come in its own time & I'm okay with that.

Do you have specific goals, or are you allowing things to come naturally? I'd love to know what works for you. Drop a comment below.

Ciao, babes.
