Here’s a quick tutorial on how to create a digital vision board. This is a great way to take your vision board where ever you go. It’s super quick to do, and when you look at your phone you have an everyday reminder of your goals for the year.
Well, welcome back to Love, Jenell. I took a long break from blogging. At the end of 2018, I went from being a SAHM to a working mom. I also had invasive eye surgery. So, when the New Year rolled around I was still trying to find my balance and heal. BUT this year I am determined for it to be different. Next year I want to be more intentional with my actions. I’ve already started working on my 2020 goals. My 2017 Free Vision Board Printable, is by far my most popular post. So, I thought I would update it and reflect a tad bit on my 2019.
Spring is near! And while most people are clearing their houses of clutter, I think it’s a good idea to clear our lives of clutter. There are everyday things that take up space in our lives that are unnecessary. So, I thought of a few ways we can Spring clean our life. These changes aren’t grand, but they will help you to eliminate some clutter and become more in charge of your time, space, and coins. You don’t have to do everything on this list, but just by doing a few your Spring, and hopefully the rest of year, will be a bit more organized and productive.
We all need a little push sometimes. And lately, I’ve needed a big push. I’m not sure what’s going on with me. Actually, I do. Starting the new year sick really threw me off my game, and I’ve been playing catch up since. I love order and schedules, so not really being on a schedule has really been difficult for me. And playing catch up is exhausting and overwhelming. When trying to get back on track, there are few ways I pump myself up to get back on track, reading or listening to a self-development/business podcast is usually my go-to. But sometimes I come across motivational quotes that get me all the way together. So, I wanted to share with you all a few motivational quotes by some amazing Black women (it is Black History Month after all) that will get you back on track and ready to take over the world.
With February being the month of love, I thought I would talk about the ways I’m practicing self-love in 2018. 2017 was a busy year for me, so I neglected myself a bit. This year I’m focused on taking more time for myself, being gentle with me and getting closer to my goals. How I practice self-love is in direct response to how I want to feel at the end of the year. Loved. Healthy. Accomplished.
So, here are the ways I’m practicing self-love this year. It is not enough for me to say I love myself. I need to also show myself that I am important and loved.
I thought I would share a few apps I use to keep me on track. I’m not an app junky, but I do love a good app that helps me reach my goals and get things done. You may notice that my list doesn’t involve any to do list or task apps. I’ve tried everything from Evernote to Trello, but I didn’t stick with any of them too long. If you all have suggestions, please let me know. Until I find the right one, I’ll be a pen and paper type girl.
Enough of the rambling. Here are 5 productivity apps that I use and love. All the apps listed can be founded on iTunes and, hopefully, the Google Play store.
Your vision is your vision alone! When we begin to talk to about our visions, we open them up to scrutiny. Just imagine you get a great ideal and share it with a friend or a family member and instead of being met with enthusiasm you are met with discouragement. That can be crushing. And just like that, you find yourself second guessing if you should pursue this dream because what they are saying makes sense. We are especially vulnerable in the beginning when we aren’t even sure what we should be doing.
I think one of the hardest things to do when working for home, rather it is full time, a side hustle or a passion project, is finding out where to exactly work. If your area is like mine, local coffee shops and Starbucks are always crowded and attempting to find a space to work is next to impossible. So here is a list of places where you can work remotely and get things done, nearly all are free.
This time of year we all need positive voices cheering us on and letting us know that we got this! I am a HUGE fan of listening to personal development and Christian podcasts that encourage listeners to make positive changes in their life. So, I put together a list of amazing motivational podcasts episodes that will provide you with encouragement and knowledge to make sure you win in 2018. What we listen to is soooo important. Make sure what you are listening to is feeding your dreams and starving your fears and doubts. And as a bonus, I included 2 youtube videos that I watched this year that I enjoyed.
All the podcasts can be found on Apple, Stitcher and Google Play. But you can also click on the pink link to listen to the exact episode.
