DECEMBER IS HERE!

December 1

So I know I’m a day late, but who’s counting! The fact that this is the last month of 2014 is nuts to me and it’s seems like it flew by. I love doing my first of the month posts, to kind of give myself a bit of perspective on the month, and let you guys know what I’m up to. This month is no different- I hit almost all my November blog goals so I set the bar much higher for December! With Christmas coming it will be a bit difficult, but with that comes a bunch of days off from work so I literally have no excuse. I am still finishing up my ideas for new “columns”, for lack of better term, for 2015 so if there’s anything you guys want to see from me leave it in the comments below. I have a bunch of stuff coming so stay tuned!

NOTES ON A SUNDAY (2)

NOTES ON A SUNDAY

Happy Sunday guys- this weekend flew by! I had a great, and cold time, Friday night going to see the tree lighting with C, and finally saw the Beyond Lights last night with a friend! Anyway, I was thinking of what to write for this weeks #NotesOnaSunday and kept putting it off and putting it off and realized in that, that I found what to write about. I have long struggled with procrastination and putting things off until the literal last second. Whether it was homework in college, buying flight tickets, finishing home projects-basically everything, until recently. I figured out that there are certain things that I don’t and never have procrastinated, like planning my blog for instance, shopping for an outfit for an event, planning dates for my boyfriend and I, and assignments at work.

That kinda made me think, why do I procrastinate so badly on some things and not on others? I still don’t know the exact answer, but this quote has been helping me procrastinate less and I thought I should share it with you guys! I feel like looking back and saying I shoulda/coulda done something that was completely do-able, and was only stopped by procrastination, is the worst and I never wanna do that. Using that as my motivation and even taking it down from a year to a week has brought things into great perspective and helped so much! Don’t get me wrong a lot of my procrastination stems from laziness and simply not feeling like it, which I still struggle with, but giving whatever the activity is a bit of context is beneficial on several levels. I sometimes even find myself saying “Let me go do this now because next week I’ll be so behind” or some version of that!

This quote, that could maybe even be called a mindset, can be great for long term goals too! I take it to heart in certain aspects of life like my career and my blog. Day to day stuff makes us put off those long term aspirations for “someday” or “at some point”, but getting started little by little can make such a huge difference. And though I’m definitely still learning, I think I’m getting better at handling day-to day things and making taking steps toward my long-term goals a priority. Partly due to this quote replaying in the back of my head ha!

What do you guys do to combat procrastination? If you have any tips or think this quote may help you too, let me know in the comments below! And if you’re not already follow me over on Twitter @ChicAndDefined!

NOVEMBER TIME!

November Graphic

So this year is literally flying by- it’s actually November first. Meaning we are in the second to last month of 2014, which sounds crazy! Fall is my favorite season, and Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, so I’m totally here for it (not to mention Black Friday, which is absolutely a holiday in my book). I hit 100 followers on my blog ahhhh, a few days ago actually, and loveeeee that you guys are such fans of it! I have a bunch of blog goals to hit for this month and for the end of 2014 so stay tuned!
