Quarterly Goals


Hello my to all my wonderful readers, I hope you are all having a great Saturday ❀

Quarterly Goals, is a new feature that I will be posting once in every three months. I saw this feature at a YouTuber Author, Jenna Moreci. I loved it so much, so I thought it would be a great idea to try it out.

So far, it’s amazing.

I’ve already accomplished a few of my goals and I just started writing these goals. Usually, I write my monthly goals and even weekly/daily goals and with all that is going on in my life right now, I always feel overwhelmed and stressed.

Making these goals makes me feel that I have more control of the chaos around me and be able to do the things I want without being too stressed out or guilt. I still use daily/weekly goals but as a broken down of these goals I have below πŸ™‚

So, this is how it works (as she said in her Vlog)… You need to write 10 to 20 goals and you need to accomplish at least half of those goals by the end of the quarter.

If I accomplish half or more, than it is “well done” for me πŸ˜€

If I fail, then it is “public failure” for me (Yay) 😦

Here are my Quarterly goals (Jan-Mar)

  1. Buy new boxes.
  2. Organize things in the boxes.
  3. Finish with the revising.
  4. Have a date night with hubby once a week (already doing this <3).
  5. Organize my Mom’s things.
  6. Organize writing room.
  7. Outline the new project.
  8. Write 150 pages.
  9. Find my F* lost book.
  10. Write at least 8 blog posts a month.
  11. Post more on my social media.
  12. Clean up my Twitter.
  13. Change Covers/Banners/Themes (for social media & blog).
  14. Clean & organize my blog.
  15. Eat healthier (2-3 veggies/fruits a day).
  16. Drink more water (1.5-3 liters a day).
  17. Walk more.
  18. Cook at least 3 healthy meals a week.
  19. Reconnect with friends IRL (so hard for me).
  20. Take some pictures of hubby and me and print them out.
  21. Buy new simple frames and put those picture in them.
  22. Follow blog/social media stats.
  23. Reach 700 followers on Twitter (would love some help in this) πŸ˜€
  24. Research some things for an awesome giveaway (started).


Okay, so I have a bit more than 20 goals, lol but some are smaller than others (so that’s okay). Wish me luck with all these goals and I do hope I will be able to accomplish at least half and not fail here in front of all you, lol.

I do like that in this goal setting approach, I still hold myself accountable but not without the massive stress I usually feel πŸ˜€

Are you a goal-setting kind of a person? If you are, how do you go about that?

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀

Mini Update


Hey everyone,

Sorry for the long absence (again).

I was still feeling ill and my mom had to move to a new home. We had to search fast for a new and better home for her and finally, we found one.

It is close by so I can still visit her a lot and I hope that slowly she will love it there ❀

Even though this move was very emotional for her and physically challenging, I still think that this new place is a bit more suitable for her needs. Moving to a new place is always scary and it feels weird for both of us, but I think she is ready for a new start and maybe she will be able to feel as this is her new home.

What about me?

Well… I still have this sore throat going on (yep, still), maybe it’s just due to the cold weather (I really don’t know, nor the doctor knows, lol). I feel tired but I know that things will come down (they had to, right?).

Things I have done:

My revision is all done ((Happy Dance)).

I’m is still at the beginning with my editing, but I did start ((so proud)), lol.

I am almost done with the review for the book I just finished reading for Heena πŸ™‚

Decluttered my computer (a bit) and mostly my closets.

Other than that everything goes on the back burner because my mom has a lot of doctors appointments this month, due to a surgery she is about to undergo, so… there are many things to plan and do.

However, I have already scheduled a few posted that will be posted this week and next week and even 2 new + old series that will come by the end of the month (Oh yeah.. Feeling very productive, lol) πŸ˜€

Btw, if you ever want to reach me just to talk or ask me something, I downloaded most of my social media accounts to my phone so I could be more connected with you all ❀ I missed you all so much ❀

I have tons of blog posts reading, lol, to do on the weekend and I can’t wait to see what I’ve missed πŸ˜€

I hope you all having a nice day and I will see you on Friday πŸ˜€

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀
