For the last few months, I’ve been trying to learn more about manifesting my ideal life. While reading an article about manifesting that I featured in last week’s Link-End post, they mentioned making a list. In case you didn’t know, I’m a list girl. If I can find a moment where I think will help me out, I will immediately put pen to paper. A well planned list will have me feeling like I can take on the world. Since I have a small list of things I want to do by the end of the year, I decided to create a list.
Keep reading to see what things I want to do by the end of 2023.
I really would lik to start journaling again, which also a need. Journaling used to be a daily activity for me, but life began to get too hectic and I stopped. Honestly, that should have made me want to journal even more, because it probably would’ve helped me mentally and emotionally.
If I was making this list in order, then redoing this blog would be at the top of the list. Ever since I started blogging over 12 years ago, I’ve always been the one to redesign my website. This included finding the templates, installing plugins, and creating the graphics. May sound weird, but I actually enjoyed doing it. However, times have changed and I don’t have the time to do all that work. So, I may actually hire someone to do all that for me. We shall see, but this site will definitely have a new look by 2024.
Although I still have about 6 months left on my lease, I think I’m going to end up re-signing it. However, unless something changes such as the location is no longer ideal, I’ll be there for another year. So, finally creating a dining/work space is on my to-do list. I’ve put if off for so long because I was torn on if I should keep the space a true dining areas or make it a work area.
One thing I can say I’vc gotten better with over the last few months is improving my personal finance knowledge. One thing that caused me to do better is having to pay taxes every year. Just a mini con of the “single life with no kids” and healthy income. Thankfully, I don’t pay as much as others and it’s usually less than my paycheck. Still, I want to save at least half of it by the end of the year and save the rest by tax day – April 15th.
