Hello everyone. I’ve decided that I will be writing daily for the month of January, following a 31 day challenge. Some days I may even write more than once as I have some things I’d like to talk about outside of the daily writing prompts. Basically get ready to learn ALL about me. Today’s prompt simply states “Introduction”. Immediately I thought about an introduction to myself, but then I thought about the intricate pieces of me and all of the things that I think would be important to speak about and it’s too much. So instead I’m going to introduce my 2018 me– meaning my goals and aspirations for this year. Let us begin.
Hello. My name is Tara and I am a wife, mother of 4 girls, full-time employee, part-time student, daughter, sister, aunt, lover of glitter, black, and shiny things. I love to read and so I will read a lot more this year, with a goal of 4 books a month. I love gift giving, throwing parties, and having fun. I will combine this with my new business as an Independent Consultant of Paparazzi and build a group that people look forward to and enjoy. I plan on having parties with food and games, girls nights with drinks and chit-chat, and maybe just a quiet night of reflection and growth. I don’t want to be just another salesperson, I want to create a group where people feel relaxed and visit for fun, laughs, reflection and $5 jewelry.
I will grow in my career. I have already applied for a few new positions– if I get one I will give my all to it. If not I will continue to grow in my current position. I will work hard in school. My goal is the keep above a 3.7 GPA (for my Bachelor’s I graduated with a 3.6). I will get to my goal weight by my surgiversary, which means another 60lb loss by September 6, 2018. I will keep up on my blog as it is an amazing outlet for me. It not only helps me express myself but it helps me work through how I am feeling and the roots and causes of those emotions. Emotional Intelligence is important to me. I want my kids to be emotionally intelligent and I’d like to grow in this field.
I will focus on what helps me and not focus on what pleases others. I don’t care that this blog post is really long and most won’t read it through to the end. What I do care is that I got it all out of my head and into the real world so it can materialize into something real. I will not compare myself to others and feel sorry for myself as all of our journey’s are unique and if there is one thing that has stood out to me in my graduate program it is that these intricacies have the capability to change outcomes significantly. One tiny decision can change the path of life from one direction to an entirely different one– I will respect that and be more understanding and less bitter.
So hello again. Welcome to me and my blog. I am unapologetically honest. My mind works like no other so my thoughts can be jumbled, random, illogical and messy. I hope that you enjoy my portrayal of life as it is for me ❤
