Amanda's Goals


Lately I am tired of the word goals. I am usually very ambitious. I set goals and I normally achieve them. With everything that is going on with my life right now I feel more like I am drowning, rather than thriving. So I decided to look at this blog and my own personal blog differently. I am all about creating the life you deserve. So I needed to sit back and think about what I hope I/we would create for these blogs.

So first I need to decide what is the end game? What did I/we hope to achieve overall? For my personal blog, it was never about just blogging. I want to get my ideas, crafts and recipes on Pinterest. Now that goal has grown and I want to expand into Etsy.

The goal for Cosmic Positivity has always been simple for us.  This was a safe haven for us to learn, and to help other beginners start and grow on their own path. I hope it never changes. Sometimes people don't have the openness in their relationships to talk about topics that interest them such as crystals and chakras. We always wanted to provide a place here for them.

So I kept things simple for this blog. I broke things down into 3 categories. Here is what we're hoping to create and how:

  1. A home to help beginners. Everyone starts at the beginning. It's the only way you can learn. We're still learning a lot on a number of different topics. Some people have helped us move forward with our knowledge and we would like to pay it forward to others. How? We have talked about eventually creating ebooks, a beginner's kit as well as some other ideas. We want to help other beginners expand on their journey.
  2. A sense of community. We want to invite everyone, not just the beginners. Our niche is not as popular as a lot of other niches. We want to talk to others who write on similar topics. We have made some great friends so far, but are hoping to grow our circle of friends. Our tribe if you will.  One project I know Shannon is super excited for, is one day starting our Youtube channel. It will be a great way to expand and meet more people. Social media also has helped us to meet others. We do plan on expanding on social media. It's just one step at a time. 
  3. A library of resources at your finger tips. Before we even dip our toe in the pool of ebook writing, we have talked about working on some PDF files. This way people can have the resources they need at their finger tips. There is a lot of information out there, and sometimes it can be confusing. Hopefully we can solve that problem. At the very least, simplify it a little bit.

Looking at this list makes me very excited about what's to come in the next year to year and a half. We have a lot of big dreams for this blog, and I am really glad we are taking the necessary steps towards them.

As for myself, I have a few things I want to work on. My new year's resolutions are not coming along as much as I would like. That's because at that time I did not even have these blogs on my radar. Now that we've got a good basis, I think it is time for me to focus on getting some of my goals underway.

The good thing about goals, is that you can start them at any time. You don't need to wait for New Years or your birthday to make one. Start today! Also make sure you celebrate them as well. That is equally as important!
