I used to consistently share my monthly goals on the blog but when I launched this new space, for some reason that just didn’t transfer. The past year+ of my life has been packed with self-development, growth, and internal work but lately I have found myself feeling a little scattered, unmotivated, and maybe more so, unfocused. Sometimes I feel like it’s easy to go through the motions of setting goals without actually making sure we are reaching for something or know where we are actually trying to get with those goals, and honestly, I think that’s why I stopped. I started to feel like I was setting the same goal over and over again (ex: gain #X of followers on Y-platform) but wasn’t taking the action or knew WHY I was trying to achieve that goal.
I’ve said time and time again that I listen to a ton of podcasts (and audiobooks). Friends are often giving me suggestions of new ones to listen to or asking for more recommendations so I thought I’d take a few minutes today to share some of my favorites right now:

While JT30 has only been around for a few months, it often boggles my mind that I’ve been in the blogging world for over 6 1/2 years! How can that even be possible? I think back to my early blogging days when I was blogging a whopping 7 days a week (!!) and even when I “dropped” down to 5 days a week, while also working a full time job and some sort of “side hustle” whether that be a second job, managing bands, etc…
