May mantras and goals

A new month and a new set of mantras and goals.  April flew by far too quickly.  I was just getting over the fact that March was finished when May arrived.

My goals for last month were:

  • Finish last 2 shelves of linen cupboard  Nope.  No excuses. 
  • Sort bathroom cupboard out See above.  Again no excuses.
  • Go to gym  Yes and it was great!
  • Read 3 books
  • Live out my OLW for the year. Stop making excuses and just release!  I like to think I’m getting there.
  • Decide on a blog name – new blog is getting there – just need to make a final decision on the name.  Yes at long last!  Will be sharing my new blog soon.
  • Go for a cycle.  I lost my cycling confidence a bit and need to get it back.  I went for 3 and my longest cycle was 36km’s.
  • Drive more often. Definitely a trend here with wheels and I.  Nope. 

May’s goals:

  • Drive more often
  • Declutter last 2 shelves of linen cupboard and organise bathroom cabinet
  • Plan dinners and eat more healthy lunches
  • Read either “The power of now” by Eckhart Tolle or “The life-changing magic of tidying up” by Marie Kondo.

If overthinking was an Olympic sport I’d have so many medals!  What is up with that – so annoying and such a difficult habit to get rid of.

Need to do more of this!

What is on your list for May?

    Dude—you crushed your goals last month!! Go you! That’s awesome that you’ve been cycling and going to the gym more often! Decluttering is always on my list of to-dos, but I like that you are focusing on just one area—that makes it more attainable, I think (as opposed to “clean up the kitchen”). So many areas to it, lol!

    The other day Eckhart Tolle liked one of my photos on Instagram and I legit freaked out…then I realized it was probably because I had #thepowerofnow as a hashtag but whatever lol! The Marie Kondo book is a life changer!! Can’t wait to read your thoughts!

      Thanks Charlotte! I’ve found with decluttering that focusing on one thing at a time helps and I’m getting there slowly but surely!

      That is awesome that Eckhart Tolle liked one of your photos – you must have been SO excited! I’m a few pages into his book and enjoying it so far. The parts about overthinking are so interesting and I cannot wait to read further. Marie Kondo’s book is next on my list and I will let you know what I think.

    Way to go on your goals for last month!! That is awesome. But yes, we’re both on the linen closet delay, ha! I’m going to make it happen, I swear. LOL
    I’m excited to see your new blog name and layout! So exciting!!

      LOL at the linen cupboard – this has been on my list for far too long! Now just to get the last shelf sorted!

      I’m looking forward to blogging on my new blog – just been so busy lately that I haven’t had much time to work on it.

      I feel like the two go together. If I can just plan meals better I’ll eat healthier foods and make better choices.

      I’ve heard such great things about her book and look forward to reading it.

      I just had to use that mantra when I saw it. I find my mind really needs to switch off more! Overthinking has just become the norm for me and it is an annoying habit!

    You may have lost your confidence on the bike but damn, 36 kms is nothing to be modest about. Good for you. 🙂 My hubby just went out for a 15 km bike last night and really enjoyed it. I of course stayed home because I had gone to the gym earlier, or I would’ve gone with him.
    You and Beth are both struggling to get your linen cupboards tidied/decluttered. Good luck with that; I did mine last month and I could still tidy it up again/more.

    I’m with you on the overthinking. I stress myself it all the time rethinking things too much. *sigh*

    Good luck with your May goals hun. 😉 xoxo

      Thanks Lindsay – it is so easy to lose confidence and then put off getting back on the bike (I took a tumble a while ago – nothing serious but not fun). Now I’m aiming for 40km’s next time – we’ll see!

      Oh my goodness the battle of the linen cupboard. 1 shelf to go and I’ll be so glad when that is finished!

      I’m so tired of overthinking and really need to get rid of this habit. Life is too short and overthinking and stressing over things I cannot change doesn’t get me anywhere.
