10 Things I Want To Do This Year | Jenngem
I have quite a list of things that I want to do. I'm talking about a huge list that I want to do. I have so many business ideas. I, of course, do not have any kind of business degree. However, I have seen so very many of my online friends and other bloggers launch their own businesses.
In addition to business ventures that I would like to explore and feel out, there are, of course, other things that I want to do this year. Here is a list of my top priorities this year.

1. Read At Least 20 Books

I've been wanting to make reading goals for quite a few years now. I already have one book behind me. I just finished reading Idiot by Laura Clery. I totally recommend it. I could not put it down! I want to read mostly books written by fellow bloggers, well, the bigger more successful bloggers. You guys know what I mean.

Speaking of books...

2. Work On My Next Book

I do have a few books under my belt. But honestly, while I did write them, I never traditionally published them. They are only published through Amazon. I want to write a book on OCD, and how I live with purely obsessional OCD. So, during the year, in between jobs, I would like to begin work on that book. I even have a working title: The OCD You Cannot See. Right, right?

3. Boost My Self Esteem

This is something that I have grappled with for a long long time. It probably began after my dad passed away. I'm not entirely sure. But I want to work on boosting my self-esteem. Perhaps read a book or two on it. Does anyone know of any good books on it? Let me know in the comments. I would love to read it.

4. Blog More

There is no doubt that in 2019 I was in a bit of a depression. It was a bit of a nutty year for me. As that happened, blogging, which I absolutely love to do, fell by the wayside. I used to crank out a blog post or two a week. But I kind of gave up on it. So, this year, I want to take more time to write and blog more. - STARTED!

5. Build A Website For Positivity In Pain

This is something that I have been yearning to do for years, guys. I want a fully responsive totally awesome website for my chronic illness support group, Positivity In Pain. It's a place where those living with chronic pain can visit for a little bit of laughter and levity. We finally raised enough funds through a tee-shirt fundraiser to fund the website, and I could not be more excited to begin working on it! - STARTED!

6. Take A Class/Course

I really want to take a course in something. I never did get to finish college, or even finish a course. But nowadays you can do so many things online. I'm thinking about maybe taking a course in writing, creative writing, perhaps? Maybe something journalistic. I'm not entirely sure. But I do want to take a course, even if it is a short one, at some point during this year.

7. Don't Let OCD Win

This one might be a little tough. But I do not want to keep letting my OCD thoughts rule me. I do not want them to ruin my day any longer. Yes, I am on medication for them that controls it for the most part. But I have my days. 

8. Bead More

I miss beading, I really do. I used to do it so often, too. Plus, I keep buying beads! I need to do something with them! I also want to do more craft shows, too. I miss doing those. I love making jewelry, I just have to put my mind to it when I have some free time. 

9. Vacation With My Family 

It has been a good 12 or so years that my family and I have been on vacation anywhere. Whether it was because of illness or funds, we just were not able to go. But this year, my family is planning, while it is only a weekend trip, to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. My mom and my 85-year-old grandmother love Amish country, so we are going in late July to the beginning of August! Plus my boyfriend will be joining us. 

10. Take Things Day For Day

I've always had trouble with this. I always want to know what is going to happen tomorrow before tomorrow comes. I want to see the future, I want to know what is going to happen. I want to be prepared. But I know that this is not the plan that God has laid out for me. What will happen, will happen. So, I need to take a deep breath and step back and enjoy each day for what it is. 


I want to spend every absolute moment that I can with my amazing boyfriend. I've never met anyone like him in this world, and he is absolutely incredible.
