I have a confession. I went a bit downhill on my 2018 goals & resolutions. At the start of January, I felt rejuvenated & ready to get the new year going. By the time March began, I realized I'd gotten out of my groove. Something was off. So I'm here & ready to recommit to my 2018 goals as a blogger, digital nomad, & entrepreneur.

Live Now. Upload Later.

My entire 2018 blogging & entrepreneurial strategy is based on my motto: Live Now. Upload Later. The main idea is to focus on writing again, focus on blogging to blog & blogging for the sheer joy of it. Focus on life & living, not uploading content. So I vow to recommit myself my blog, my journey, my health.

Live now. Document. Write. Upload it later. I could go on & on about this topic, but I'll spare you. You can read all about my strategy in this blog post. After spending a longggg day exploring Venice Beach on Wednesday (the Boardwalk, Muscle Beach, the Venice Canals, & 15,000 steps), I felt exhausted. 

Small Self-Care Moments Matter

Yesterday I slept in, did a face mask, watched some nature documentaries, tidied my blogging workspace, & did those little things I never make time for. If those larger self-care moments (like heading to the spa for a customized anti-aging facial or a deep tissue massage) often seem out of reach, expensive, or inconvenient, take advantage of those small self-care moments. It felt good to give myself & my space some attention.

I started using Bioré pore strips way back when I was about 14 years old. It always fascinated me to see the gunk come out. TMI but SO TRUE! The Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips work like a magnet to lift out grime, oil, & blackheads, which can help minimize the appearance of your pores. It's oddly satisfying. 

Even though the Bioré pore strips have been in my life for 10+ years, the Bioré Self Heating One Minute Mask is brand new to me. I used it for the first time yesterday & was ooooh-ing & aaaah-ing the whole time. The warming sensation is unlike anything I've ever tried. The scent is pleasantly refreshing & my face felt as soft as a baby's bum afterward.

The best part is that you can buy both the Bioré Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips & Bioré Self Heating One Minute Mask from Target or Amazon. Yessss. Both these products come in individual use packages which makes it ideal for the consistently traveling digital nomad laptop lifestyle.

Even though being a blogger & entrepreneur means traveling half of the time, my goal for 2018 is still to live life with intention. I want to live my life — both fully & with purpose — Each.&.Every.Day. There's absolutely no time to delay when it comes to life. We aren't granted tomorrow.

How do you recommit to your goals when you fall behind? :]
