May goals and mantras

As today is the first Monday of the month it means linking up with Lindsay Charlotte and Beth with monthly goals and mantras

First let me do a recap of my April goals:

  • Continue going to yoga
  • Complete meditation course I started last month. Missed the last 2 sessions thanks to the flu.
  • Make time for good friends
  • Go for some pampering at a spa. Nope – still sitting with a gift voucher.
  • Read 2 books
  • Update blog 10 times and continue doing link ups

May goals:

  • Get back into gym routine
  • Go for some spa pampering
  • Read 3 books
  • Update blog 8 times
  • Sort study cupboard
  • Do wardrobe switch – it is winter now and I’m still wearing sandals

Mantra for the month:

“Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably and never forget anything that made you smile” – Audrey Hepburn

May has been quite a month so far. My Dad is having another eye op this afternoon and I’m praying all goes smoothly. I keep saying this but having family live far away is difficult.

I got some exciting news last week. I applied to be a guest blogger for an online magazine for an amazing all women running community. I’ll talk more about this soon.

Here is to a great May.

  1. I’m sending lots of love and strength to your poppa with his eye surgery. I have been plagued with bad eyes since I was little and anything having to do with the eyeballs totally freaks me out, too. I’m sure you must be so worried living far away but hope you get constant updates ❤️

    I’m with Lauren! Get to that spa!! I received a gift card to a spa years ago and friggin can’t find it and I’m so mad 😩 hope you are able to go and relax for us both 😊

    Hope you have a great week ahead and best of luck with your goals this month!

    • Thank you Charlotte. I’ve been so worried since I heard how badly an op went last year for my Dad. One eye was fine but one hasn’t been the same since and he’s now had 3 ops in less than a week to fix the damage. I’m getting updates which I’m beyond grateful for. I’ve heard that my parents are going home today.

      Losing a voucher is so frustrating – hope it turns up and can still be used. I once bought a voucher for someone, lost it, replaced it, found the original but it had expired! Oh well.


  2. I hope your dad’s surgery goes well, I am sure it is hard when you can’t be physically there with him. Congrats on the running blog, that is awesome! Can’t wait to hear more about it!!


  3. I have a massage gift cert and yet I still haven’t used mine either! I made an appointment but now I need to reschedule because some friends are coming to town now! Not complaining about the company, but I need to pick a new day/time now!


  4. I’m sorry to hear you were sick this past month. That’s no fun. Hoping your dad’s procedure goes well! These are great goals. I definitely need to get back into my fitness routine again. I just booked a beach trip in the middle of June, so that’s great motivation. Hope you have a lovely May, friend!

    • Thank you Lecy – they are on their way home today so that is good news. I’m just hoping that my Dad’s recovery goes smoothly.
      Your beach trip sounds like fun – hope you have a wonderful time next month. Good luck with your fitness routine.


  5. Sending prayers to your Dad and the whole family! I wear sandals year round, but this is Texas we are talking about lol. Congrats on the Guest Blogger spot! Thats awesome and I can’t wait to hear more about it!. Have an amazing week!


    • Thank you Kim – the most recent update was good – they are on their way home. The Dr was happy yesterday so that was a good sign.
      I wish I could wear sandals all year round. I’m wearing stockings today!
      Thanks – I’m excited and feel very fortunate to be a guest blogger for an amazing organisation.
