January, for me 👒

My relationship with January is based on those Mexican novels – “Love & Hatred”.

I love this month because:

  • It is the right time to set the annual goals and
  • I spend more time with my son, after all we’re on vacation!

It may not look like it, but it’s a busy month. It is when we organize school life, we buy all material, we define a routine with flexible schedules (because as you already know, I work at home, so our schedules are compatible) and we enjoy to rest in this period!!!

I know everything would be easier if I decided all things my way, but I don’t think it’s right. I like his participation in every step: draft and planning, because I know that he will accomplish the tasks without complaining.

I learned that I should just:
Teaching, Guiding and Never Interfering in decision making.

Speaking about resting, did you know that this is the first time (in years) that I’m on vacation? I usually have a little break and you know what? I was so used to the intense December routine that I kept waking up early in the early days.

I took the free time, posted and organized some things around here:

Now the boring part of this month is definitely summer! Here in Brazil, this season is more defined every year, a real madness!! For those who love and can stay at the beach or attend clubs, there is a delight, which is not our case: I am allergic to the sun and he is to the pool chlorine – yes! We are extremely allergic and no! We’re not spoiled. That’s why we’re restricted in our outdoor leisure options.

Good things this month:

  • We watched Wi-Fi Ralf, Glass and How to Train Your Dragon 3.
  • We buy manga Samurai X and a book about computers (for kids).
  • And of course you couldn’t miss it – ROBLOX! We play a lot!!

As you can see, we do almost everything together and usually have a photo on Instagram 😉

Next month: February 2019

Next month we will return to routine, work, school and course. I wish it to be a very productive month and full of new achievements for all of us!!


2019 Goals

“Without goals! One page per day!! “

In 2018 this was my motto and now we are in 2019, will I continue with this same thought!?

Absolutely NOT! No donuts for you my dear!!

By nature I make myself clear and living without goals is not my lifestyle. I dislike read an owner’s manual, but I need a perfect to-do list. Whether to go to the supermarket, for my job, books to read or simple things of the day, without a path to follow, I’ll be totally lost and that will become a big snowball.

Here in Brazil we always say that no matter how in the end everything will be fine. So that’s exactly how it happened. I started 2018 without goals, just needed to work and take care of my son, nothing more than the obvious!


Although it was a year with many achievements, all were related to motherhood and my side woman in stand by practically 300 days!! Living like this isn’t healthy, which is why I decided to do things for myself.

  1. Back to study.
  2. Read more than 3 books a year.
  3. Finances – manage better, we need to travel!!
  4. Give to my son more autonomy, after all, he’ll make 12 in April.
  5. Dedicate myself more to the blog, this includes translating all the old posts.

These are my priorities, a small and true to-do list. Having a list of surreal ideas made me embark on the wave of discouraging, in a few hours later the frustration arrived and my critical sense was too heavy. So I learned that no matter the amount of goals but the dedication to accomplish them.

Have you prepared your goals for this year? Tell Me in the comments or leave the link of your post, I want to read!!

Love, viectoria.
