Well thank god the longest January of my life is over. All those who think we should get Trump to ban Januarys say ‘Aye’.
As a salute to starting February, and what feels like ‘take-two’ of the start to 2017 I thought I’d put together a small list of things I’d like to achieve this month. Who knows, these might even become a regular thing if I’m feeling particularly inspired by the end.
Here is a run down of my main goals for February;
Budget more // Those who know me will know that I’m a horrendous serial shopper. This month, I want to challenge myself in committing to a budget. I’m going to give myself an allowance for the month and try my hardest to stick to it. I might do a blog post at the end of the month to catch up and see how it went or offer some tips if, by some miracle, it works.
Take more pictures // I really have been saying this for ages; in fact I’m almost certain that I made it my 2016 resolution. That failed miserably. Memories are so often forgotten or misplaced and I often find that I’ll get home from an event or a meet up with friends and regret not capturing the moment more. This month, I’m really going to make an effort to seize the moment and create a timeline of memories.
Be more productive // This month I am going to face my demons and really push at being more productive by waking up a little earlier and using all the willpower I posses to not press that pesky snooze button. I’m slowly letting things pile on top of me and this month I’ve decided not let my to-do list scare me anymore and to tackle it head on. I’m feeling all the girl-power feels right now. Let’s see how long this lasts.
Try out different blogging techniques // I love blogging. I never even thought I’d love it this much. January was my first full month of blogging and committing to doing a post every week. It’s been a challenge, but nevertheless I’ve had such a great time putting together posts and reading other posts to gain inspiration. This month, I’m going to put some more effort into really planning what I want to write about and try out some new ideas. Watch this space!
So there are my four biggest goals for February. Admittedly, they’re a bit hefty and may end up having to be stretched out over a few months but it’s a start. I shall check back in at the end of the month to see how I did.
I will be deserving of a Ben and Jerry’s if I manage to actually wake up early for more than a week. I’ll have to budget for that…
