In one of my first posts, ‘Goals and A False Sense of Accomplishing Them,’ I shared with you my goal of not voicing my goals, in hopes of increasing my chances of accomplishing them. Also in that post, I shared with you a few of my short term goals, and promised a follow up in a year. Well its been a little over three months since that post, and I don’t know what I was thinking when I told you it would take me a year to update you.
If you forgot them or didn’t read the post, here is a list of goals:
1. Create a blog.
2. The learn Associated Press Style of writing.
3. To land a writing/PR internship.
4. To help and inspire others in accomplishing their goals.
5. To break through my self-imposed glass ceiling, find my voice and do what I was called to do.
I set those goals just days after making the hard decision not to return to Korea. Three months later, I’m happy to report to you that I’m still blogging (goal 1). I’m getting better with each post, but I still have a long way to go on building it and getting it to where I want it be. Through my post, I feel and hope I have inspired others to go after whatever it is that makes them happy (goal 3). I’m currently discovering the world of AP Style writing(goal 3) in a class I’ve been attending once a week since January. I am about two months into a three-month internship at the only diversity and inclusion communications firm in my city (goal 4). I am discovering a lot about myself in this new season. I’m ever so grateful to God these opportunities. I’m in a happy place. Even though, at 27, I’m not in the most ideal of situations, I’m in a happy place. And what the heck is an ideal situation for a 27- year-old, anyway?
In this journey, I’ve discovered that going after what I want is the method that will most likely get me to where I want to be; instead of simply talking about it. This has inspired me to dream bigger, and to think up something new to work toward as well. It’s shown me what can be done when I believe in myself. So there are new goals to be set. At the moment I don’t have a set list. But I can tell you the words “travel” and “world” maybe be somewhere on that list. Maybe. I’ll update you in a year, or maybe another three months with my new goals.
Let me know! I want to know what your goals are. Big or small. Are you working toward anything in particular? Feel free to try answer my question about what the ideal situation for a 27-year-old is.
