Today I’m linking up with the lovely Kirsten from http://www.seeyouinaporridge.com/
January was a very busy month and looking back there are some things I’d have liked to do differently. I didn’t make time for yoga and I feel that would have made a huge difference. Didn’t meditate much which would also have put me in a calmer space.
Work was very busy, I didn’t take much leave over December (and none in January) and I feel the days at the office just got away from me.
I tried lots of new things which was great and did a post as my Word for 2019 is Adventure! https://my30somethingadventures.wordpress.com/2019/01/31/january-adventures/ New restaurant, recipe, wine, hiking trail, gym class – I’ve made a good start with trying new things this year.
The days before my birthday last Friday were super busy and I didn’t make time to go get my nails done or have my hair trimmed. Actually self care wasn’t a huge part of January and that wasn’t cool because I could feel I wasn’t my best self. My birthday was amazing but as it was on the 1st February (and this is a January recap) I’ll have to save it for later 🙂
I read 3 books and enjoyed “Friend Request” by Laura Marshall the most. I really enjoy a book that keeps you guessing throughout.
I used my new planner which I’m loving – did a review on it https://my30somethingadventures.wordpress.com/2019/01/28/keeping-it-together-2019-my-planner/
Something that I’d really like to change about myself is the ability to be less overly sensitive. To take things less seriously. Too care less what people think or the throw away comments they make. To embrace the positive and focus on the negative less. But January felt like my mind was switched on 24/7 and I struggled to just let things go.
I keep seeing quotes and posts online about letting go what doesn’t bring joy and I’m rethinking my circle at the moment. Some friends are awesome and I love spending time with them but some friendships are now past their expiry date and it is time to move on. I hope that doesn’t sound too harsh. Yip back to worrying what people think!
What about you? What is new with you?
