So many bloggers and YouTubers always make a post about why they quit. I’m not going to say I quit as such more that I just lost my passion and groove. I’ve always wanted to start a blog. I enjoy writing and being creative.
Working with children, I get to be creative in the arts and crafts sense but not so much the writing sense. I love to sit down and write these blog posts and give my opinion on products or share my experiences which is what I would like to do. Id love to be able to expand on the passion and perhaps write a book one day.
But as for “quitting”, I just wanted to find myself and get to a point in life where I felt happy and that I had a purpose. When I first started this blog, I was so fixated on the idea that I was going to make money and become “famous”. Little did I know that is wasn’t going to be an overnight fix. You have to put in the work to achieve anything. For me now this platform is for me to have fun. I want to learn and grow in the creative industry, give it a proper go this time without the expectations on anything.
So with that being said, here’s to 2020 and fresh starts and getting out of your comfort zone.
Every January 1st we say “New Year, New Me” and we all know damn well that this is never 100% true. Yes we may have New Years resolutions but how many of those do we keep and aren’t they the same every year; get fit, join a gym, learn a new skill, go on holiday etc. come on lets stop lying to ourselves.
This year I decided that instead of New Year resolutions I am going to set smaller goals throughout the year. Whether they be weekly or monthly goals. I find by setting smaller goals that are more realistic you will have more motivation to actually achieve these goals if the end of the road doesn’t seem too far away.
As I was away over New Year, I am starting my goal setting tonight, for Monday! This week I have only set a few goals as doing less with help you achieve more! If you set 2 goals and achieve 2 goals in a week you will have more motivation to achieve more goals the following week. Whereas if you set 5 and only do 2 or 3 you will think you have failed. Start small and move your way up.
My goals for this week are:
- Attend 2 PT sessions
- Plan out 2 blog posts
I feel as though these goals are achievable and by giving myself 7 days to do them makes it that much easier! Don’t make your goals hard for yourself, in the end you want to achieve them don’t you??
What are your goals for 2017?!!
I honestly don’t know where this year is going! It is crazy to think that next month is Christmas and my birthday. October was definitely a hectic month and all I could think about was going on holiday. Last month I didn’t have too many favourites as I haven’t tried out many new things but I did find a few old favourites that I have brought out again.
The one favourite I did buy this month was a Millie Marotta colouring book. Now I know I am a bit late on the band waggon with this one but I never really understood the whole hype until now! I have honestly done so many in the book and to be honest I think I spend way too much time on each page but I have been loving it. Colouring really is therapeutic and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
My next favourite is my Bath and Bodyworks Twisted Peppermint Shower gel and Body lotion. Now that the festive season is coming up I have brought these gems back out to use. Needless to say, I am very excited about Christmas.
Last but not least, the fake tan. Winter is over here in Australia and that means I need to tan up the body ready for my real tan. As always I am loving my Bondi Sands. Although lately, I have been using the dark foam rather than the lotion form. I have never been very good at fake tan so I tend to stay away from the foam, but I thought I would just bite the bullet and use it and so far so good!
Cant wait for November favourites, I have so many news things I am trying out! xx
My best friend has recently started a youtube channel. She is amazing at makeup and she wants to commit to getting heaps of new videos up this year. Her channel is still a work in progress but she as so many great ideas. It would mean so much to her if you could check out her youtube channel!
