October Goals

It’s October and we’re running head-first into the last three months of the year, so here are a few goals I’m setting myself for this month and the next two.

Get Active

I want to get outside more. I want to get out of the house that I’ve been far too cooped up in and get active. I want to grab my trainers and get out and enjoy the nature that’s all around, and hopefully I’ll get fitter and healthier in the process.

Learn A Language

I’m trying to learn a language at the minute – I’ll let you know which one at a later date. Actually, I want to learn many but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I don’t know why exactly. I want to learn something new and expand my knowledge. Eventually, I want to travel and immerse myself in new cultures and meet new people and hey, every little helps, right? I’m also quickly coming up on the big 2-5 and I’m allowed a tiny quarter-life-crisis, okay? Alright.

Photography 

I really want to get properly back into my photography. I want to grab my camera, get out of the house (obviously, this will also help with the first goal) and capture anything and everything my heart desires.

New Job 

I am currently unemployed after needing a change and leaving my last job. The only problem here is that I’m not very good at not ‘doing anything’. I need to be busy and feel like I have a purpose or my brain goes into emotional meltdown mode.

So I want to find a new job. I want a fresh start. I want to find a job I can put my all into – one I can throw everything I have at. I want a job which makes me feel passionate and excited and happy to get up and go to it, but if I don’t find that immediately I’ll settle for anything I can work at until I find it.

Write

This blog has been a bit dormant lately and my writing has been inconsistent. I haven’t been feeling the most inspired right now, but I want to change that. I want to get back into this little corner of the internet in a big way. Writing on here (and writing in general) makes me feel better, and happier, and makes my head feel clearer, and I need that lately. So here’s to writing more and finding inspiration from any and everywhere.

Positivity  

I’ve been getting caught up in so many things and stresses lately that I haven’t been appreciating enough. I’ve been spending so much time overthinking and panicking that I’ve been burning myself out before I’ve even got going. This month and for the rest of the year, I want to let go and just enjoy and appreciate what’s around me.  Let’s try to look on the bright side of life because, hell, it’s too god damn short to dwell on the other side. To positivity and to being un-apologetically happy. To smiling more and stressing less. That’s not to say you can’t be sad. That’s not going to happen and it’s fine. Don’t let it all build up inside of you until you emotionally burst. Let yourself be sad but then try to pick yourself back up and go again. It’s not how many times you fall, it’s how many times you get back up and put one foot in front of the other again. Let’s keep looking for the bright side even if the other side is right next to it and trying to pull you in.

So that’s all I can think of right now but, who knows? Maybe I’ll do an update next month to see what I’ve managed to accomplish and if any new things pop up.

What do you want to accomplish this month? Let’s take these next few months by storm.

To October and to accomplishing all of our goals. Let’s go.

Until next time

xoxo

Emily
