Goal Digger: August 2022
Welcome to the Jungl... I mean welcome to August beauties and beaus. We are officially over the half way mark for 2022, and as much that has happened, I hope that you've kept your goals and ambitions at the heart of your focus. If you'd like to take a quick trip down memory lane to catch up and see where I left off, you can do so HERE!
As crazy as the times are now, never forget your why. For me, my blog is my a love letter to everything I love and are passionate about: life, beauty, motherhood (although it's hard af), skincare, and so much more. That's why this month, my goals are centered around the things I love the most...ME!
If I can be honest, though, it's been quite sometime since I did this month to month accountability thing. I've really just been coasting life with an idea of goals, but not really writing them down. The pandemic has been rather hard to say the ABSOLUTE least. I don't know about you guys, but I've been in and out of depression since 2019 and it's a constant battle every single day. What I can say is that I'm here. I'm alive! I continue to make it through EVERY SINGLE DAY and now that I'm back, I have no plans of stopping.
Whew chile! I haven't had a physical goal in years. I haven't been to the gym in Little Miss Covina took over the world in 2020, and if I can be honest with you, I'm not as disciplined as I'd like to be to workout at home. What I have been doing though is nightly yoga and meditation sessions when I get off work most nights. I can realistically commit to 3-4 days a week. I'll be documenting my progress on Instagram and TikTok for accountability.

This year has been a roller coaster of a year. I go through extreme stages of love and light, then depression creeps in and shuts fun down. I find that yoga and meditation keeps me sane though, so with that being my main physical goal for the Month of August, let's see where that leave me mentally. I also have been journaling and I've run out of space, so purchasing a new journal is on the to-do list this month as well.
My career is the one thing that has been a constant in my life the last few years. I'm accomplishing things and making strides. I'm where I'm supposed be! I would like to learn more things in my field though. I love that massage and facial technique are my specialty, but I'd love to be able to answer things that aren't in my specialty as an esthetician. I've taken a liking to the medical aspect of esthetics lately and it's uncharted territory for me, so I'm going to be doing a bit of research this month. Let's see how this goes...

My creativity has suffered the most in the deep cover job I've taken in depression, so really taking a deeper dive back into my writing will be my goal for this month. I haven't pulled my camera out in a while...like a really long time! At this point, it's collecting dust in the case. Since skincare is one of my main focuses, I can pull my camera out and practice some flat lay photography, but also creating graphics, for my social media posts and blog will be top priority.
Sorry this is such a short read you guys. I'm trying my best to keep myself from doing too much. Let me know some of your goals this month. Also, be sure to head over to my social media platforms to track my progress. For those of you that are still here, ever through this long ass hiatus, I truly, deeply appreciate you. For anyone that's new here, WELCOME babes!!! I'm so happy you decided to rock with me when you did. Welcome to the show.
