Hey…Hey… How ya’ll doin? I know It’s been a while. Ninety-eight days to be exact. Okay, I’m sure no one really noticed, but for my 3 fans and my mother, I’m alive and… I’m BACK! I’m not going to lie, the last few months have been miserable. I’ve been constantly sick- but that’s a story for another post. Today is all about September goals.
Maybe it’s because I’ve been conditioned by the school system for the majority of my life, but I’ve always loved using the change in the (fashion) season and the beginning of a new school year to reflect and create new goals. September is like a mini New Year’s for me.
Here are a few goals I hope to accomplish this September:
Meditation is something I’ve always tried to love. I’ve read and watched people online go on and on about the MAGIC of meditation. It’s just never worked out for me. And, I finally know why: my expectations were waaaay too high (shocker). After talking with my therapist, I came to the realization that much like exercise, meditation is a skill that needs to be built. The instant gratification goddess within me died a little. So, this September, I’ve made it my mission to begin incorporating meditation into my everyday life.
Here is the App I’ve been using: Head Space
Guys, it finally happened. I’m a morning person? Okay, BOLD statement there. But, for the last few months, I’ve been naturally waking up before my alarm and -the weirdest part- not even tired or cranky. WOW. I’ve never EVER had a single ounce of “morning person” in me. And, all of a sudden, boom.
This September, I want to make the most of my mornings. I have about an hour or so to play with before I need to sit down and log into work. Whether it’s a little extra cleaning or getting in some early morning writing or drawing, I’m looking forward to being more productive.
Reduce Screen Time
Since March, I’ve noticed my dependence on technology for entertainment has drastically increased. This month, I want to shift my focus away from the screens, and towards a project that I’ve wanted to start for a long time. I’ve always loved art. Since I was a kid I’ve loved to paint, draw, and work with mixed mediums. I’ve decided I’m going to start an art Instagram account to showcase some of my designs, projects, and the process. More than anything, this is for fun. I’ll share more when I get it started!
I’m am beyond excited that it’s September… I’m totally one of those fall obsessed people. Bring on the pumpkins! I have some upcoming fall decor and fashion posts planned in the upcoming week- so be on the lookout!
