Personal Note/Goals

Lastly, I can’t forget about self in November. I have been doing a lot of thinking and soul searching. I have a few facets in my life that I want to change. First how I deal with my own stress, and anxiety. To mention, as much as I preach about going to therapy I really did not take in consideration of myself. I am all about self care is doing things on my own.

Thus, it is certain things that I just can’t iron out on my own, so I am going to get some help. I have been talking about if for years now. Finally, I put forth the effort to finding a therapist. I have narrow my search down. I have 3 therapist that I am going to reach out to, TODAY to see if I can set up an appointment to set down and talk.

On the contrary, my career as mortgage underwriter is starting to get a bit better. I am still struggling through the growing pains however, thankful that I did step outside my comforter zone.I will always being proud of myself for stepping out off, and pushing through fear. Let get into my November goals.

  1. Give myself time to pray and meditate in the morning and at night. 
  2. Exercise for 20-30 minutes for 3 days out of the week
  3. Standalone in my new career. Do 1 more mortgage everyday than the day before. Make my way up to underwriting 40 loans a day. 
  4. Commit to buying  from 1-2 black owned business or donate to organization that benefits the Black community, or the underprivileged once a month.
  5. Say no- stand up for myself.
  6. Remember to be kind to myself, Giving myself grace.

What are your goals this month?
