Hello again, fellow writers and blog readers.
Christmas is now over, and everyone is slowly preparing for their NYE festivities, whatever that may look like. It’s also that time of year where we all reflect on the current year before it ends, and what we hope to discover in the next.
Personally, I love making these types of lists. But, I do want these resolutions to matter in the long run. Life changes don’t just have to happen every January onwards.
I’ll probably have my fair share of moments where I don’t sleep well, or meditate enough, things like that. But to be honest, I’m human and nothing is ever perfect.
Learning to be mindful and living in the present moment is important, to balance out the discipline and expectations we all have/expect of ourselves.
Without further delay, here are my top 5 (or 10, haha) resolutions/life changes that I want to incorporate into my daily routine and improve my current lifestyle.
1. To sleep better
2. Eat more mindfully
3. Read more books
4. Save more, spend less
5. Prioritize my mental health
Another five, because why not?
6. Declutter the house/wardrobe
7. Write more consistently
8. Start work on poetry book #3
9. Get more active
These are in no particular order, might I add.
I had many more I could mention, but these are the most relevant to my life at this moment. It doesn’t matter if I don’t successfully achieve all these things, as long as I am aware of my goals and at least trying to be the best version of myself. A journey like this is not always straightforward, but it is possible when the timing is right.
Would love to hear about what your own resolutions are for 2022. Or if you’ve decided not to participate in it this year, it’s fine either way.
This might be my last post of 2021, although I probably will post something on NYE as a farewell to what has been a strange year, to say the least.
Originally, I was meant to write earlier in the day, but this cold left me exhausted, no surprise there.
Fingers crossed that the upcoming weekend will be more active and motivating.
Have a great Thursday, everyone!
It’s a new month, once more. To think six months have gone by already, that is strange yet intriguing.
Had plenty of good ideas on what to write, but when you’ve got the flu, you just need to take a step back, focus on your health and rest, so that’s what I’ve been doing for the most part.
My energy levels might be low right now, but my optimism isn’t. That being said, I’m currently writing this as I contemplate what time to sleep, or if I can sleep at all tonight. Congestion is not fun.
But, I’m not letting that get in the way of a lot, although exercise is something that I have been less focused on.
That’s not a bad thing, of course. I try and listen to what my body is telling me.
Hope you’re all having a good day and I’ll speak to you more on the next entry of the blog.
Going to keep this post short, for the most part. I always seem to get writing at night, during the day it’s just not the same. Or perhaps, inspiration for me just lacks.
I am going to be making longer entries over the next few days or so.
For some reason, my energy levels were pretty non-existent most of today, but I feel energetic now. So, there’s that. Naps are so necessary sometimes.
Hope everyone is doing well on this Saturday evening (or day) depending on the current time. Weekend has been good so far. Take care!
One of the best things about celebrating birthdays as an adult is not presents, although any you receive are always appreciated – at least by most.
What I truly love the most is, the people you get to spend time with, the joy in the room. The last year or so has impacted a lot of people’s lives, mentally, emotionally and physically. And my heart goes out to all of those who have lost loved ones and continue to navigate life in these strange and difficult times.
So grateful for the birthday wishes yesterday, and any belated ones I might receive in the days to come.
Bank Holiday weekend is here and I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.
God bless you all and stay safe.
After some needed rest, time to eat and unwind, I wanted to get on the blog and talk for a minute.
Writing late wasn’t what I had in mind for today, but at least I am writing.
I truly wish the weekend would last longer, it feels so short.
Sunday has still been good, cooking and gathering my thoughts ahead of the new week starting.
Got hair lightener in my hair currently, so going to bed is probably not going to happen anytime soon.
Been so nostalgic from music too, heard songs that reminded me of better times, a different space.
Listening to songs that you haven’t heard in years can be so bittersweet.
It’s even worse when it reminds you of people you don’t speak to anymore, and the places you used to live.
All that aside, life is a journey.
Have a good Sunday.
All these emotions, running through your mind
When all you want is peace
For healing to set your mind free
And love to bring light
All these thoughts, of which you’ve been consumed
When all you wanted was to feel safe
For time to heal your heart
And the sun to shine on you
Today was meant to be Blue Monday, and for the first time in years I can honestly say, it really wasn’t too bad. Start of the week can be a bit slow and tiring, although that’s not unusual.
Been quite productive too, which I’m pleased about. Got up early, took my supplements, all that fun, morning routine stuff. I’ve tried to keep myself organized and punctual, so I don’t forget anything important.
Weather’s quite cold, it seems like it’s raining all the time during the night, either that or the wind is howling. Either way, none of that has impacted my routine so far.
My first online lesson went okay, although I think there was an issue with the audio on my end of the line. I’ve got some things I need to do before Thursday, which is something I am looking forward to a lot.
Almost reached my water intake goal for the day also, still not entirely keen on it, but I have noticed a difference in my skin, although the hyperpigmentation is something I need to sort out at some point.
Been watching a lot of videos about skincare and I have learned a lot since then. Knowing these key ingredients and what they help with has been incredibly beneficial and it helps me understand my own skin a lot more, and how to protect it well.
I’m hoping to fall asleep soon, fingers crossed. Stay safe, everyone.
Hello, and Happy New Year to each and every one of you.
It’s that time again, to make resolutions and stick with them.
To say 2020 was a nightmare, that’s an understatement.
In this blog post, my first of 2021, I wanted to include some of my own personal resolutions for the next 365 days ahead, but it’ll be a little different.
These resolutions of mine are more about learning to find balance and peace of mind with myself instead of overwhelming my brain with a list of things I probably attempt to accomplish every year.
I think I have about five things I want to focus on.
Here’s my (realistic) list of 5 resolutions for 2021:
#1. Work on being kinder to myself.
#2. Budget more.
#3. Get more sleep.
#4. Improve eating habits.
#5. Start writing for my next poetry book.
I’m sure I could list more, but let’s start with those for now.
Do let me know in a comment what your personal resolutions are for 2021.
Have a wonderful day/evening, all of you!
