How I Plan to Elevate The Quality of My Life in 2018 (and why you should too!)
It’s been a while since I have done a #freewritefriday.
Why? Because I have dedicated the last two months to finding a blog post schedule that is not only consistent, but that works for me.
It took me a while but now I can gladly let you guys know that I am writing a blog post consistently every other day until I start college again on Feb 5. Then I will be posting 2-3 times a week, depending on the week.
First and Foremost…
I want to thank everyone who has ever visited INsheP and read anything from my blog. I am almost at 100k total views from the time I launched on August 25th. That is amazing considering INsheP is my first (and only) blog!
I decided to bring #freewritefridays back because I have a lot to write about, and sometimes what I have to write about doesn’t really go into any category that is already on INsheP.
Thus, #freewritefridays were born. As I am growing in my journey to be the best blogger/brand I can be, I am realizing that free writes are essential to my blog because they are a part of me. I often have so much to say that I find is best expressed through writing.
This #freewritefriday is a bit more personal, and dedicated to what I plan to do to change my life in 2018 and beyond.
I am 100% fully committed to becoming my best self. I am sooo much better than I was a year ago, but I want to see exponential growth in my journey over this next year.
How am I going to accomplish this?
By holding myself accountable, as we all should if we are very serious about reaching our goals.
How do you hold yourself accountable?
You can do this by keeping track of your day-to-day progress, and making sure you reach every single small goal that will ultimately bring you closer to your big goal.
Reward yourself when you accomplish said goals, and punish yourself when you do not. Your goals will always only be dreams if you do not commit to holding yourself accountable.
So that raises the question:
What am I planning to accomplish in 2018 and how am I planning to hold myself accountable?
2018 INsheP Goals
- launch my online store, INsheP Merch (I have so many different types of products in mind!!!! I will not go too much into detail because I enjoy the element of surprise)
- revamp my youtube (make more professional with natural hair and yoga vids)
- publish my first tech e-course!
- Know every one of my subscribers MBTI. Send them tips depending on their type (you guys can help me out with this one)
- Launch exclusive “100 days to your best self” series coming soon!
Here are my major 2018 goals for INsheP. I love fashion, so I figured why not sell some clothes of some sort.
Stay tuned for my 100 days to your best self series, it will be one of my first INsheP products!
There are so many goals on here that have to do with monetizing my blog. Because, if I am being honest, which I am because I don’t know how to not be honest, my MAIN goal for 2018 is to earn a full time income from INsheP, on top of my current income.
There is way too much time and energy that I put into this blog to not get anything from it, and although I love blogging, growing my brand and talking with my subscribers enough to do it for free, realistically that can’t happen.
I am a 21 year old with 25k in student loan debt and make more than both of my parents with my current job, meaning they can’t help me. I recently moved into my own apartment, where I have to pay rent and utilities.
The reason for the paragraph above is to prove to you that doing INsheP for fun would be fun, but it’s just not realistic. I am tired of being a prisoner to debt, because I’ve realized that it is a cycle to keep us down.
I am committing to paying off EVERY bit of my debt in 2018, because I feel I can’t progress to my best self financially without doing so. Debt is a trap guys, join me on my journey to pay it off!
HOW YOU CAN ELEVATE YOUR LIFE IN 2018
well, if you are a blogger like myself, shoot for launching your own product in 2018. After reading countless articles on bloggers who make the big bucks, its clear their success comes from selling their own products.
If you are not a blogger, don’t worry there’s still an infinite number of ways you can elevate yourself in 2018. Here’s a short list of little, yet very effective things you can do to elevate to your best self in 2018:
- take the MBTI, subscribe to my blog. Email me your type for exclusive tips on how to navigate the world as your type!
- read everyday (not social media posts….anything but those)
- do some social media detoxes
- commit to paying off all your debt. (not sure how? check out my post on how and why you need to commit to paying off all your debt)
- start a bullet journal
- start exercising
- sign up for my 100 days series, coming soon!

Stay tuned for more #FreeWriteFridays, they will be every other week to fit into my post every other day (until school) schedule. I hope all my new readers can join me on the journey to becoming your best self, and all my old readers to continue to support each other on this journey!
