Goals check-in

Welp we are a month in to 2021 and I feel that I have really just been working on my goals. There isn’t much else to do when you have been told to say home and see no one (Thanks COVID).

So as a recap here or you can read them below 🙂

  1. get a 1000 followers on my instagram page
  2. learn to roller skate
  3. read 21 books
  4. blog consistently
  5. be more mindful
  6. go to therapy

So number one is a slow start which is to be expected. Unless I go viral for something, we won’t be moving super fast on that one. But if you want to help me with my goal by all means follow and share! 🙂

for 2, it is the dead of winter here is Saskatoon. There is no way that I am roller skating outside right now and as far as I am aware of there is no place to roller skate inside, RIP rollerworld. I have however been working on my balance because that is a big issue for me. I have just finished 30 days of yoga with Yoga with Adriene (her breath series). I felt that this definitely help a bit, still have a ways to go but we are getting there.

reading 21 books… has had a rough start. I just have not been feeling reading or listening to audiobooks. I am listening to one right now but I am not as into it right now.

blog consistently which is once a week. I have been doing really well for this one. I have a good chunk of posts planned out and I really just need to write them. So I’ma pat myself on the back for this one.

look at me go!

Being more mindful. This one I have also been doing well in. Along with doing 30 days of yoga, I have started to meditate everyday. I use the headspace app and am following the 365 days on meditation. I have been meditating everyday before work which has really set me up for a good day. I have noticed that I don’t get as flustered when I get dumped on with a bunch of projects. Normally this would have sent me into a spiral and it would end in me making a ton of mistakes. So meditation has been a very positive change for me.

Go to therapy. This is the big one that I put on here to keep myself accountable. I had been doing a ton of looking around and I found one place that I felt I really wanted to go to. I just had my first session and I absolutely loved it. My therapist is amazing! I am so happy that it was a good experience and I don’t have to keep trying out different therapists (that is exhausting). I also believe that I am in a much different headspace than I was when I first tried going to therapy, which probably helped this session go so well.

So yea, that is how my goals are going. January has flown by for me, which I love because once I get through February, I always believe that March gets warmer and really that is all I want right now is warm weather.

So until next time
