Weekly Wishes: Be Awesome Instead Editionfeatured

Weekly Wishes December {the ponytail diaries}

I’m linking up with Melyssa at Nectar Collective today to share my wishes/goals for week. Join in!

I spent the weekend in SLO (San Luis Obispo) for my brother’s graduation from Cal Poly. He earned his Masters in Aeronautical Engineering, which means he is an honest-to-God rocket scientist.

Can I just brag for a second that I’ve got one brother with a Masters in engineering and one who’s going to be a doctor in about a year and a half? And I’m just sitting over here with my B.A. in English(oh yeah, the lyrics in there aren’t super safe for work. use your headphones)

Last Week’s Wishes

01 | full yoga classes at least twice and core work at least 5 times
Big fat fail. In my defense, I’ve been sick.

02 | blog editorial calendar (both for Ponytail Diaries and AllisonKeltner.com) for the rest of the month, plus some higher-level 2015 planning
Er, not really.

03 | social media auditing
This one I did! I brought my Facebook friends from 304 down to about 183. That’s NEARLY HALF, which was unexpected. I started going through the list, looked at each name and profile picture and asked myself, “If I ran into that person tomorrow, would we be able to have a conversation for more than 5 minutes before it got hopelessly awkward?” And if the answer was no, I un-friended. I actually wound up having a lot of thoughts about this (surprise? not really…) that I might post later.


This Week’s Wishes

01 | full yoga classes at least twice and core work at least 5 times
Yeah, I’m basically keeping the same goals up for this week.

02 | blog editorial calendar (both for Ponytail Diaries and AllisonKeltner.com) for the rest of the month, plus some higher-level 2015 planning

What are your goals this week?

  • girl I totally failed at all of my weekly wishes last week so I didn’t even want to post them today out of shame. hahaha. I’m glad you got the social media auditing done! Best of luck with your editorial calendar!

    • Haha thanks! I feel that way a lot. Like, it’s Sunday night and I’ll be “what did I even write for my goals this week?”

  • Allison,
    Your thoughts on the whole Facebook friends situation has inspired me. I always end up accepting someone’s request so as to not create awkwardness, but truly, I am only fueling that more by accepting to be friends with someone I can hardly call an acquaintance. I’m going to follow your example and wave goodbye to all those (unnecessary) relationships. Good luck planning for 2015 – it feels like the clock is ticking away!!
    ♥, Paulina

    • Paulina, thank you. I honestly didn’t set out to inspire anyone when I decided to do this — it was really a selfish desire to clean up my newsfeed 🙂 — but it’s great to know that happened. Good luck — I have a feeling this will end up strengthening some of the friendships I do want to hold onto, so I hope the same happens for you!

    Hi Allison,
    I was trying to up my yoga game last week and failed too. Such a busy time of year and it also doesn’t help if you’ve been sick!
    Hope you’re feeling better this week 🙂

    • Thanks Jenny! Today’s been a huge improvement 🙂
