As we move forward toward the end of the year into a new year, let’s reflect on all we’ve accomplished and the goals we’ve set. Getting to this point is nothing short of amazing. I’m so proud of my Pencil Case family. With celebrating wins and the creation of new goals also comes the things we want to leave behind us. The things that we don’t want to carry around anymore. What do you want to let go of? What do you want to leave in 2021?
Here is a list of what I want to leave in 2021:
The phrase ”I can’t”.
Any low-frequency thoughts that limit my power and potential.
Not speaking up for myself or my needs.

What are 3 goals you would like to set this month?
Note: Goals can be simple, complex, changed or even adjusted as time passes. It’s totally okay if you decide that a goal you’ve set isn’t the right fit for you. Goals are about you and what you want to accomplish for yourself.
The three goals I would like to set this month are:
1. To be gentle with myself, prioritize my mental health, and not compare myself to others.
2. To work on my certification and complete 4 tests.
3. To remind myself every day that I’m worthy, I’m enough, I’m doing the best that I can, and just because something hasn’t happened doesn’t mean it will never happen.

A moment, I remember, where I felt empowered was when I decided to ask for help with my mental health instead of isolating myself and struggling on my own. At that moment I knew I was capable and willing to receive help without feeling shame or embarrassment.
