A Sneak Peek-NYAC

Hey, Hey, Chicks!

It is insanity to think that this year will be over in two months!!  Wow… where did the time go?  I know I was surprised last month but putting it into the perspective about the New Year means I need to get my ass in gear.  For what?  Life, I guess.  Definitely not for a resolution because I do not make those but I do choose a word that I focus on throughout the year.  I will need to start thinking about what that will be.  Instead of tripp’n over the future, let’s look at our immediate past, October.

This month was my least active behind the scenes.  I have stayed busy but not nearly as much as other months.  The upcoming months each have a focus that will bring me closer to my launch date.  For those of you who are new,  NYAC will be going self-hosted in April of 2019.  It will be the same perspective and similar content, the same goals, with a different name and more freedom.  I will not be transferring post or linking this site.  It will be all new and fresh.  I hope you subscribe…oops, future talk, again.

  • October yielded more traffic and some new followers. Thanks, guys, and gals!
  • I did a review that I enjoyed doing although it was unintentional.
  • I shared a Southern sweet drink
  • I completed my first junk journal
  • I shared my new planning system
  • I stayed on track with posting every Monday and Thursday
  • My October goals helped me with maintaining somewhat of a focus
  • I did finish the journal covers and bindings from September, 5 total
  • This is my 79th post!
  • I have 11 subscribers.  Better than none and they are the best!

That about wraps it up.  A good, stress-free month spent preparing for the upcoming months.  Generally, this is my favorite time of year and I hope to maintain my moods keeping everything balanced.  I had to step back this month because if I stand too close, I become obsessed and that isn’t healthy for me.

Keeping my mental health in check is my priority above anything else.  Journaling does wonders for me and my mental state.  It also helps me track the ups and the downs and allows me to see possible triggers.  One thing I’ve been irresponsible about is taking my medication.  For the last six months I have not stayed consistent and because of this, I suffered from a major anxiety attack.  I am fortunate to have surrounded myself with compassionate, concerned, and caring people.  But with that said, it not only affects me, but it also affects others.  In November I will stay vigilant about taking my meds and focusing more on what matters most, my mind.

Thanks for a wonderful month of support and I hope you carry on with me on this journey.  Stay tuned for November’s motto and monthly goals!

NYAC turned 5 months old on the 29th!

    1. You think? I’ll take your word for it. I do feel good about where I am going. It is hard to see what all I’ve accomplished because I feel like I should have at least one area completed but with me wanting to go self-hosted, it has thrown a wrench in my creative productivity. I did read somewhere that having stock of products is a waste of time because you never know what products will be popular. That does make me feel better and lessen my stress about having a lot of things ready. I will just have to clear that my products may take a bit longer to receive because most will be custom made or something like that. Haven’t quite figured it out yet. I am working really hard condsidering I work a full-time job. Thank you for making me notice what I have achieved.

        Products taking a little longer seems like something that should be expected anyway for something custom made.

      2. True. I was hoping to have a few alreasy made items that people could buy but as of now, it is a small amount. I still have a few months to go. I am so happy I have your support. It truly means more than you can imagine.

    1. Yes, you will be able to subscribe. I will launch in April and plan on using this site to promote it beginning February. I wouldn’t be able to do it without the support I receive from y’all!
