How’s it shaken, bacon?
Hard to believe we’re into the second month of 2018 already. Before I know, it’ll be December. When I started blogging not so long ago, I tried to do monthly ‘adventures’ as I called them at the time and I stopped. Reason being: I’m lazy, so lazy. But I want to bring that back. I want to set myself three achievable goals each month. Something achievable and something beneficial and I want to be able to post about them here during the month. January was a particularly tough month and I want to do something to pick myself up and shake off the absolute misery of the month gone. I want to look back and say: ‘hey, that month sucked, but maybe this one can be better’ and the only way that can be realised is if I do something to make it better, one day at a time.
I am terrible at looking after myself. I don’t care for my physical or emotional needs in a healthy manner and I want to change that this month. I want to leave time, even a few minutes, each day for me and addressing the needs I have as an individual. I need to figure out how to do that and what exactly I need.
I want to take a day trip somewhere. Take one day out of my life and go somewhere. Take a train somewhere, spend the day there. Go on an adventure! Have some fun and do something I wouldn’t ordinarily do. (I’m actually going to look up train times, destinations and prices today) and who knows what I’ll find. Might be fun.
I did virtually no reading at all during 2017 and I don’t want this year to be the same. I finished Castle Rackrent recently and it reminded me of why I love stories and reading them. I want, this month, to try to get back into that. I want to remember why I loved reading and I want to engage with that this month.
Nothing particularly dramatic this month – but it’s a start.
Until next time, warm hugs
