Sunday, 8 September 2019


We are already a week into September, notably I feel very different to how I feel typically would feel at the start of a new month which is the predictable *gasp* where has the time gone *shocked expression*. This year, much like last year, has been a complete mixed bag and I have been taking it day by day let alone month by month, and I am ready to move on, every new day, new month, new year is a chance of a fresh start and the potential for things to get much much better. I haven't done a goals post in a while and I find helps me to stay on track and focus on yourself especially when there is a lot going on for you. I am currently in Japan, most likely severely jetlagged. I am frantically trying to get some posts in queue before I fly so I don't feel severely disappointed in myself, really sorry if these suck by the way. 

1. Be present. This is something I am sure many people struggle with but I do want to try and enjoy every day and every moment in their own right. Sometimes, I can become fixated on the future, what might happen, what has already happened and know in my heart of hearts that the best thing to do is just live for the now. I start a new job in October and to be quite honest  I am bricking it. So the best thing to do is enjoy what is happening right now, the job I have, the people I love, the good and the bad, worry about tomorrow when it comes. If you worry about something before it happens you put yourself through the same stress twice. Save yourself the stress. 

2. Be open to trying new things. I am lucky enough to be spending a fortnight in Japan and I want to squeeze every last drop of it and have no regrets. I am not going there with a concrete plan of course we have an itinerary of sorts and we have key places to explore but I am so excited to get Lost in Japan (Shawn Mendes reference - not sorry). 

3. Healthy is happy. I have bad eating habits, particularly when it comes to sweet food and I want to get back on track to eating a healthier, balanced diet with less meat. I am going to make a conscious effort do this and to incorporate more exercise into my daily routine. 

4. Friendships. Friends save your life, I have gained and lost friends every year so I want to make a conscious effort to keep people that add to my life in my life even if it is in a really small way, like an email or a quick text. As I mentioned, I am leaving my job and it would mean a lot to me to be able to remain in touch even for a brief while with some of the great people I have met there. In a way it gives me that sense of validation that I am worth knowing and not that easy to throw away, I can take broken friendships personally and it does hurt my feelings to feel like I am not worth knowing to people that I genuinely care about and enjoy spending time with - I would be happy to do a post on this if it is something people might relate to?

5. Blog my little heart out. I definitely want to keep the blogging momentum going, it sounds stupid, but I think it is good for my self-esteem and helps keep me motivated and engaged in my life. I definitely want to do some posts on Japan, I really miss doing my travel posts I have been to so many amazing places in the last few years like Amalfi Coast, Jordan, Marbella, Berlin etc. that it is such a shame that I don't have a post to commemorate them. 

Five small, hopefully achievable, goals. Nothing too crazy. There are other things on my mind too, like saving money and not overspending. I can go crazy in the pasta aisle at Sainsbury's during my lunch break and I definitely need to calm down. Please check back in for a post in a few days, I have a bunch of foundation reviews to post but want to make sure I am back on British soil so I can do them when I am not in a rush and am able to take photos properly etc. Thank you so much for reading, I will see you in the next post which will be in a week so Sunday, so come back then. Leave a comment below sharing your goals for September, I would love to read them. Take care.

  1. Great goals! One of my goals is to get back into blogging consistently. I feel like my Summer has been quite hectic so I didn't post as often as I would have liked, but now I'm hopefully going to be getting back on track!

  8. Trying new things is definitely on my list. This post is so inspiring doll.

  9. Yoga is a kind of exercise that combines breathing exercises, yoga positions, and mindfulness. The practice of mindfulness involves

    concentrating your attention immediately. Yoga participants frequently employ breathing and yoga positions to help the mind relax. Yoga for children can help children and adults become more active, flexible,

    and thoughtful, which will improve their overall well-being! Yoga fosters a secure, adaptable, and inclusive atmosphere for

    creativity, physical movement that allows everyone to succeed. Yoga may be included in the school day at any moment. Consider the

    Always Live Yoga’s supporter aims and then choose a set time of day to combine the exercises on a regularly scheduled basis. It was
