Chapter 11| November Plan and Goals

Happy November everyone! Look how quick we transition from Halloween to  the Holiday season, LOL.  If you saw my timeline on Facebook  you would see funny post and memes referencing the Grinch and the girl dancing super hard to jingle bells.

Well that how I am going to pull up at my parent’s house for that tasty meal my mom is going to prepare for Thanksgiving. (Sidenote: I am going to help her with the cooking this year).  Yes I love food and Thanksgiving food is such favorite of mine. To add to the occasion, November helps me put things back in to perspective, Gratitude. I try to practice gratitude to all year round. However, it more sweet when you share it with others. So, we all gather around the table, my mom and myself, tell each other all the things we are thankful for.

Yes! November is going to be another great. I am being very intentional when I say that. On today’s post I am going to reflect on last month while sharing my personal goals  and share latest fashion styles and trends. To add, I am going share with you all all the great post and goals to FashionLayn.com.

Personal Note/ Goals

Lastly, in October I realized that I have been more self aware more than ever. Trying to eat better, more focus, and avoiding negativity. I feel like this whole year has been a year of self discovery. I have been learning more about myself and how things affect me. What I can and cannot accept. Setting boundaries! If you want to learn more about boundaries, click here. Overall I have been working on myself I am happy with strides I am taking. Still need more work tho. Here are my personal goals I am going to tackle this month:

  1. Eat MORE  fruits and vegetables
  2. Drinking 64oz of water everyday
  3. Commit to my celibacy journey- I have been doing great with this.
  4. Pitch 2 to 3 brands each month- even when they donโ€™t response-KEEP GOING!
  5. Take 10-20 minutes just for myself only. No blog, No social media, just me!
