May 2021 Goals

I posted my four goals for 2021 a few months ago and I’m pleased to say I’ve already achieved two of these goals. So, today I thought I’d set myself some monthly goals to help keep me on track in life. I’ve split these goals into blogging and personal goals just to make things a little bit easier for me. When it comes to ticking things off this month, there’s a lot I want to achieve. I’m optimistic that this new chapter in my life will be so beneficial for my personal growth and my main goal is to just move forward in life and really give it my all.

It can be difficult with an anxiety disorder at times, as it can really work against me sometimes, but it’s time to let that go and just live my life how I want to. It’s not going to be easy, but it might be easier than I think it’s going to be. You get me?

Anyway, here’s my May 2021 Goals:

Blogging and Social Media Goals:

My blog is a huge sense of purpose for me and without it I feel a bit lost, so I’ve set some goals to help build my audience and improve engagement.

Reach 2000 pageviews:

I’ve only got about 600 views left to go before I reach this milestone and I’d be so happy if I managed to achieve this. In order to reach this goal I’m going to publish blog posts regularly and of course promote them! Twitter is my best source of traffic so I’m going to focus a lot on that this month.

Reply & Return All Comments:

I love receiving blog comments, but I’m not always the best at responding to them. Of course I read and appreciate every single one of them, but I often leave them until later. This needs to change if I’m going to keep up with all the comments. In order to achieve this goal I’m going to try my best to reply to comments on my blog posts and return the comments on other people’s as and when they occur.

Write and Post 3 Poems On My Instagram:

I’ve paused writing poetry recently as I’ve been so busy and my mood has been really good so I don’t feel the need to express myself creatively as much. However, over the past few days I’ve found the inspiration has come back in a completely different way than it has done before. I’m seeing everything from a different perspective and I’m finding it’s an interesting angle to write poetry from. I’m hoping to share some of my work again on my Instagram soon and I’d love it if you could follow along in my poetry journey.

Personal Goals:

These are the goals that are more personal to me and are away from all things blogging and social media. These are the goals that really focus on improving my day to day life.

Start an online course:

I’ve been meaning to start an online course for quite a while and it finally feels like the right time to do just that. In order to achieve this goal I’m going to have a browse around different distance learning websites and find the course that’s right for me. Having something to work towards will really help boost my mood levels and general happiness in life.

Get out for some Photography:

I feel like I haven’t used my camera outdoors enough since I bought it way back in 2019. I do a lot of indoor blog photography, so basically notebooks and pretty things on a marble tray, but I haven’t done a lot of nature photography, especially recently, so I’d love to get back to doing that. I used to notice all the colours and shapes in nature and it was a brilliant exercise for grounding and I think it’d really help improve my mental health as hobbies are so important.

Get out for a walk:

I’d love to take my morning coffee and just walk to the shop or something. Small steps though, I’ll get there.

Practise Gratitude Daily For 31 Days:

I’ll be honest, gratitude is a practise I slip in and out of doing, but I want to see results and in order to do so I’ve got to be consistent with practising gratitude. Who knows? In 31 days I might look back and be glad I did it as I’d be happier in general. We’ll just have to wait and see. I’ve written a blog post all about how to practise gratitude and you can read that here.

Meditate more regularly:

I find meditation just resets my anxious mind, and it’s such a helpful tool so I’ll be trying to incorporate more meditation into my month.

So those are my goals for May 2021. What are you hoping to achieve this month?

    Fingers crossed you hit your goals 🙂 x
