Personal Note/Goals

Lastly, I can’t forget about self in December. I have been going to therapy for month now, and I feel good. I am so happy that I am not alone with my emotions and have outlet. You know someone to talk to about all that is going on and coping with my anxiety.

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 December 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.
