How is it April already? I feel like the cold weather has dragged on for so long, the months have rolled into one big foggy, grey-skied blur, filled with fantastic Netflix marathons and good food though may I add. Apart from the fact that we got to overindulge on easter eggs, April means another thing for me – IT’S MY BIRTHDAY MONTH!
This isn’t just any birthday though, it’s the big 30! I won’t lie, I’m feeling a teeny tiny bit uneasy about it but only because other people keep asking if I’m weirded out by it. Well, I was fine until you started banging on about it, Brenda!
One thing that makes me feel like I’ve got my shit together is writing up monthly Goals
with no intention of achieving any of them, it’s on par with my love for writing lists. Some of my goals for this month:
Read a book.
I look at all all the beautiful books I’ve accumulated over the years and feel pure guilt. I’ve read many of them but there’s still a fair few sitting there gathering dust! Gheez, why can’t I make myself sit down and read a book unless I’m on holiday? I’ll tell you why, because it’s easier to scroll on the many social media platforms that have taken every ounce of my concentration these last few years. It’s so much easier to mindlessly scroll. The internet doesn’t enrich me as much as getting into a good book does, falling in love with characters and being totally immersed in another word. I WILL read a damn book.
Have a clearout
I have some lovely things I need to sell. I plan to make some extra money and sell the bits I don’t use. I’ve not read thatthat everyone raves about, but she mentions the method of seeing off the items and objects that don’t bring you joy. Well, I can tell you, I have items in my wardrobe that have previously brought me joy but in recent years, I’ve been too much of a hoarder to let go of them.
As soon as 11 pm hits, my creativity flows, all the ideas come at once and I end up not being able to fall asleep due to inspiration overload! I’m one of those people that don’t deal with tiredness well. When I’m tired the world is grey, everything sucks and my working day is unbearable. So more sleep is what I need. No later than 11pm…
Walk to work
Tis the season of showers but that’s no excuse. Armed with my new trainers, raincoat and umbrella, I’m aiming to walk to work most days, it takes me an hour and 15 mins (ouch) but I’m getting fit while saving money, so it’s not ALL bad.
Continue getting fit
I’ve been on a fitness journey these last few months and I am LIVING for it! I’ve finally stuck out a fitness regimen for more than 2 weeks, I actually look forward to exercising now and the gym is my happy place. This is something I want to continue with and to keep pushing myself. One constant resource of inspiration has been the beautiful Krissy Cela. If you’re looking for fitness motivation from a real down to earth girl, then give her Instagram a follow.
What do you want to achieve this month?
