Reflecting on October: She is Fierce
This past month has been a slow one for She is Fierce, filled with growth but no big and exciting changes to report. While I only managed to schedule a full week of posts once, I’ve been getting better about having post ideas ready and getting articles set to go. I’m so excited to see this space turning into one that I’m so proud of and that I can’t imagine not coming to each day.
Reflecting on October: Life
I’d be lying if I didn’t say that October’s been a stressful month for me. A 1 1/2 to 2 hour commute both ways for work has been taking it’s toll, and most days by the time I get home from work, I’m too exhausted to get much of anything done. But with homecoming a couple of weeks ago which meant friends I haven’t seen in months coming to visit, and my nephew’s 2nd birthday last weekend, it’s also been an exciting month filled with some great memories and friendly faces I don’t get to see very often.
Favorites from October
Freelancing Since my internship at the local newspaper a year ago, I’ve been freelancing small feature articles once in a while. This month though, I’d like to work on finding more freelance writing opportunities, primarily online. I’ve written a few articles for BlogHer, but I’d like to extend beyond that and find more online sources that I can write for. Do you have any sources you love writing for or could suggest?
Pack a Lunch Let’s be honest: I’ve never been a particularly healthy eater, and I’m awful about saving money. Working in the city though, I’ve gotten even worse about both of those things, and this month I’d like to work on packing my lunch at least twice a week. My office has a great lunch room for employees to eat in, and a lot of my coworkers do just that. There’s no reason why I can’t bring something delicious in with me at least a couple times a week.
Let Go of the Little Things I mentioned in a post last week that I believe one of the easiest ways to be happier is to stop letting little things turn into big things. I’m nothing if not guilty of doing just that, and this month I want to work on taking my own advice and letting go of the things that just don’t matter that much.
Get Personal This was one of my goals last month, but it’s something I want to continue to work on because I don’t think I did a very good job of it last month. It’s definitely a struggle for me, trying to strike a balance between “diary” and “anybody could be writing this,” so it’s going to take a lot of work and any advice you might have for me!
So tell me? What are you planning for this month? Anything exciting?
