I feel like my lists just get longer and longer with each month, and I think I make a comment about that each month too. It feels good to read so much though. I wanted to read at least five books a month and I have been successful so far.
Attend more events that interest me. My anxiety has always held me back and I have missed out on many cool things, like lectures about the universe or an arts and crafts weekend at the closest library.. Or Christmas markets when that time comes. I don’t want to be too scared to go anymore so I need to make a conscious effort to go through with it.
Get better at talking about myself. When I attended a CV and job application workshop I realized just how bad I am at talking about myself and figuring out what kind of good qualities I have. A little bit of confidence is important when applying for jobs and I have none.
Exercise more. The past month I got horribly ill and haven’t had any energy to exercise at all. It’s not easy to do anything when a cold/flu just hits you like a damned train and knocks you out for over a week. Hopefully I can start going on more walks now that my lungs and throat are clearing up and I won’t end up coughing whenever the temperature shifts a little bit.
Wear more comfy socks. I usually walk around barefoot at home and I always feel like I’m freezing, so I need to make an effort to actually put on all of the cute, fuzzy socks that I have lying around. I also have a lot of knee highs that I need to wear more often. I never thought wearing socks would be something I needed to change about my life.
Think twice about make up before buying it. Just because I think something is a good idea there and then, doesn’t mean it will be the day after. I’ve bought so many things that I end up just using once and never again. I’m usually good when it comes to everything else but not when it comes to make up. There are more times when I don’t wear make up than when I do so I honestly don’t need as much as I purchase.
What are your goals for the month?
