Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog.

 I recently took some time off from blogging and social media because I felt very overwhelmed and stressed due to school and my final exams. I was staying up past midnight studying and working as much as I could because I wanted good grade and earn some extra money before I break for summer. Now that it's all over I can say proudly that I passed all my classes and the late night studying paid off. 



When I got home for the summer and unpacked my belongings I soon fell into laziness and that was ok. I worked so hard during the school year so I deserved some time off so with that being said for the past two weeks I just took my time, got some rest and took care of my health. It was great because for the first time this year I did not have to worry about getting up for class or going to work, instead I just slept and relaxed.

Now that two weeks have pasted I realized that it is now time to get back to business.  I made a few goals this summer on how I want to grow my blogging and social media platform and I can't embark on them if I am sitting around and wasting valuable time.

At first I didn't know how to get back in to the grove of things because it honestly felt better to just sleep in but I have roughly three months of vacation and I don't want to waste it. So after doing some research and looking at what I have done in the past I compiled some tips of what works for me and also what I think could work. Hopefully this can inspire anyone who is my shoes and just had a rough period and took some time off but now wants to get right back to work.

It's all about the mindset 
Above I stated that when I came back home for the summer I didn't want to do anything because I wanted to relax and get some sleep which is ok to do after a long and stressful period but I knew I had to soon snap out of that. If I were to continue to be lazy then I would not be able to get any work done. 

So to get my mind in the right spirit I had to figure out the mindset I needed to have because if I don't have the right mindset then I won't be able to get anything done. For me I need to be determined and focused mostly because before when I had a great idea for my blog/social media it always fell through because I wasn't focused and soon got lazy. This summer I hope to keep my goals active.





Gotta be productive
Now to go along with having the right mindset I also want to talk about being productive. I said above that I made a few goals that I want to achieve this summer which I think that if you have dreams or you want things done then you need to make them your goals and have a plan to achieve them. Upon making plans to achieve your goals you have to plan it out step by step so that you can slowly see the progress while working your way up. 

Working on your plan to achieve your goals is a lot and a lot of factors in your day can determine if you get work done. For me if I wake up late I feel like my day is almost over and I used to wake up around 11:30AM-noon and by that time breakfast is over and you only have about seven or eight hours on sunshine. So to make sure that I am taking full advantage of my day I will at least wake up around 9 or 10AM, shower, get breakfast and get right to work.





 Motivation/Inspiration
Motivation and Inspiration actually might be a key step to getting back on your grind because you can have your goals and plan but you do need that motivation/inspiration to keep going.

I feel like to start on something new you need to find something that inspires you. This inspiration can fuel you in the beginning and make you want to work. For me when I blog I am always inspired by many other bloggers and other girl bosses around the world. I find it amazing how there are many women out there just doing their thing and making big moves so this inspired me because I want to one be my own boss as well.

Now for motivation, this is what keeps you going. You can have your goals written out with your plan ad inspiration to start on your journey but you need to have some motivation to keep you going. What I usually do is think about where I want to go. What's my end goal? What do I want to learn from this? How can I/this project help others?
