Get Your Mind Right: Week 5 of #MindRightMonday

mrmquoteweek5

Hello February, and welcome to Week 5 of #MindRightMonday. If you’ve been following my goal journey for the past few weeks, then you know that I started participating in my first link up hosted by three talented bloggers and my fellow BLM Girls – Darrica from Dear DarricaDani from Ok, Dani and Danielle from Mamademics. Every week, I get better at holding myself accountable and reaching more goals professionally, personally, and spiritually.

This past week, I managed to accomplish the majority of my goals. I made it a point to be more realistic about my goals because I knew that I had a busy weekend celebrating my sorority sister’s 30th birthday. It felt good to be able to turn off writing and work mode to focus on myself and have a relaxing time on Lake Wylie. I turned it all back on last night to wrap up my weekend and get my mind right for another week!

So let’s get to it—

Last week’s goals were:

  • Wake up at least 30 minutes earlier to each breakfast, pray and read/write before getting ready for work – Moving on, but I am waking up earlier. I have to work on leaving enough time to eat breakfast and pray and read before getting ready for work.
  • Write in my grateful journal once – I wrote last night. I was thinking about everything that I was grateful for all weekend. I couldn’t wait to put my pen on the paper and write it all down.
  • Write 2 blog posts – Check mate!
  • Write at least 1,500 words in Chapter 11 by the end of the week – I wrote 760 words on Chapter 11 by the end of the week.
  • Plan/Schedule social media posts for Always PHREA – Check mate!
  • Schedule interview with potential PHREAdom Leader – I didn’t do this, and it’s okay.
  • Create ideas for 30 Acts of Starkey – OMG YES! I’m not finished, but the 30 Acts of Starkey begins on Valentine’s Day so I can’t wait to share with everyone. I hope some of my PHREAdom Followers will join in on the festivities.

This week’s goals are:

  • Wake up at least 30 minutes earlier to eat breakfast, pray and read/write before getting ready for work
  • Write twice in my grateful journal
  • Read one chapter in both Don’t Waste Your Pretty by Demetria Lucas and Sticky Faith by Dr. Kara Powell & Dr. Chap Clark
  • Schedule time to begin planning for nursery lessons at church
  • Write at least 1,500 words in Chapter 11
  • Plan/Schedule social media posts for Always PHREA
  • Create ideas for 30 Acts of Starkey

What I’m grateful for:

  • Life
  • God
  • Ladies of Virtue
  • Sanctuary Charlotte Church
  • Family
  • Seven Degrees of Sigma
  • TWH
  • BLM Girls
  • My Career
  • Friends
  • Supporters
  • Mentors
  • My sorority sisters

What are your goals for the week? How has tracking your goals helped you become more accountable?

❤ Starkey

  1. Awesome goals! It is pretty kool how you are going about obtaining them. It seems more gets accomplished when you have a written account of what you want to do. Maybe I should try that and see how it changes my day to day or week to week for that matter.

  2. wow these are great goal! I create similar goals bit i never thought to share them to readers. I might have to look into to that. Keep up the great work! 🙂
