I’ll go first!
I felt uplifted and empowered when I hosted my first Mighty event back in 2018. During this time I was going through a lot of major shifts and changes when it came to my career and mental health. This was also the first time I was doing something that was out of my comfort zone. Following this moment I became more confident in my abilities and talents 🌟.

What is one thing you want to change, improve, or do more of this year?
Ever since this year started, I’ve been on a mission to prioritize what’s best for me. From the opportunities I’m accepting to what I’m eating and who I’m interacting with, I’m checking in with myself daily to make sure what I’m doing is a reflection of what I want and deserve.
In that process, I’ve thought a lot about what I need more of and what I want to improve. One major thing I know I want/need more of (because It’s almost nonexistent in my life) is having fun and defining what fun looks like for me. I want to spend more time doing things I enjoy!
What about you? Is there anything you want to change, improve, or do more of this year?

Finish this sentence: I like to boost my self-esteem by ________.
Building my self-esteem is an ongoing journey I work on regularly. On that journey I’ve learned different ways to help myself feel better especially when my mental health isn’t great and I’m feeling depressed, sad or self-critical of what I’ve achieved so far in my life.
I particularly like to boost my self-esteem by doing a combination of these three things: 1. Repeating this affirmation, “I am doing my best and my best is enough.” 2. Going to get my eyebrows done and buying myself something nice (when it’s in my budget). 3. Writing on my blog about something I’ve overcome or accomplished that I’m most proud of.
What about you? How do you boost your self-esteem?

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.
