Adulting: Surviving A Long Term Goal

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:

  • Write the goal down
  • Keep doing what you need to do to achieve the goal
  • Constantly look up things that motivate you towards your goal
  • A little competition never hurts!
  • Speak the goal into existence
  • Expect to fail, but plan to succeed

I made it!

Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.

I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where my strength came from. A higher power? My awesome fiance? My Mom? All of the above and more! My fight isn't over, but I'm still hanging in there. When you want something, I mean really want something, you will do almost anything to get it. I can't believe 6 months of 2018 have come and gone. A few weeks ago was rough, but now it almost feels like a blip. Remember, everything is for but a season. Nothing lasts forever, even if it feels like it's going on and on and on. Pull your strength from the deepest parts inside of you, and borrow some from those around you too! No matter what goal you're trying to achieve, just remember, you've got this!

32 on the Nautical Mile

I recently celebrated my 32nd birthday, and it was quite a nice day. I finally got to wear this dress that I purchased last year! I got a little too tipsy, and couldn't even drink the 2nd round I ordered. I was a little disappointed with Nautical Mile. Being from FL, when I think "Water front dining" I think Beach front, and this wasn't the case. I still enjoyed the area. I'm bummed I was too tipsy to explore, but to be honest, there wasn't very much to see as far as sightseeing.

Getting ready? I always keep it kinda simple. I'm no make-up guru by any means. I just like to hide my hyper pigmentation and have bold lips. I don't even wear mascara because it irritates my eyes. I also throw in the towel when it comes to pink lipsticks! It just doesn't agree with my complexion what-so-ever. The red looks much better. Both mattes were by Black Radiance.

I love being out in Long Island because it reminds me a lot of being home. There are actual parking …
