Completing goals with confidence.

Now that you've decided on a SMART goal, do you feel confident you'll complete it? If you're anything like me, you're probably wondering why you chose such a huge goal (like, is this really necessary? Oh dear, I have so much work to do...). You probably feel quite overwhelmed and don't know where to start.

Well I have a secret to share with you guys. The trick to setting goals and feeling confident you'll complete them is so simple, it can be broken down into 3 easy steps.

1. Start at the end and work backward.

When getting to work on your goal, it may seem daunting, overwhelming and (sometimes) impossible. Conducting a plan by working backward through the steps you need to take can be really helpful. Take my "write two more books goal" for example. What do I have to do before I can say I finished writing two books? I have to write two books. What do I have to do before I write two books? I have to write one book. What do I have to do before I write one book? I have to write an outline. What do I have to do before I write an outline? (I think you get the point.)

Creating a simple step-by-step plan by working through the process backward can straighten out your thoughts and give you a sense of what needs to be done.

2. Set timelines.

Creating strict timelines for yourself can be really helpful. I am one of the many people who sit down at the computer and gets easily sidetracked because I tell myself I can do things later - because there's always more time later, right? WRONG.

Setting a timeline (for example: finish typing up a blog post by 12:30 so you can get to work on something else) will allow you stay on task, ensure you're getting things done, and help your overall efficiency.

3. Use monthly mini-goals.

Utilizing monthly mini-goals is an essential stepping stone on your way to achieving any goal. Drawing up a plan of action and creating monthly steps for each goal will not only help you track down your progress, but make sure you stay on course without slipping behind or pushing too far ahead.


Now that you've established a plan of action, set a timeline, and harnessed the awesome power of monthly goals, it's time to get to work! Follow these steps and remember to have fun! :)


Are you prepared to complete your goals with confidence?

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)




This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...




Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…
