If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll remember that back in March, I wrote this post all about the things I wanted to do more of in 2015. Now that we’re four months on, I thought I’d revisit this list to see what I’d managed to continue!
- Remembering Old Passions
I wanted to make sure that I did more of things I used to love, like drawing and reading etc. I haven’t been great with drawing, although I have done a bit, but I’ve definitely been reading a lot more over the past 4 months. I’ll definitely try and draw more too again!
- Starting Couch to 5k
Yay, this is definitely one I’ve kept up with! I completed Couch to 5k and I’m now going to move onwards to the 5k to 10k and hopefully on from there! I’m really glad I’ve stuck to this because I found something I really love.
- Looking after my hair
My hair was never in an awful condition but I was trying to grow it from a short bob and it just wasn’t happening. I started washing it every other day, using less heat, using heat protection spray etc., and it’s all helped so much! In fact, the last time I went to the hairdressers I asked how bad it was and she told me it was in excellent condition, so yay for that!
- Looking after my skin
Er, mm… I’m not sure about this one. I definitely take better care of my skin than I used to but I could be much better. There are too many days when I am awwwwwful and fall asleep before I take my make up off etc. But I am looking after it a lot more than I used to! I just need to keep working at this one.
- Being more blog organised
Another one I definitely have done! I think I proved this with all of the scheduled posts I managed to do before my holiday. I’m getting back on track too so I’m ahead with my posts. I’m glad I’ve managed to keep this one up because it makes my life so much easier when I don’t have to worry about if I have a blog post ready or not!
- Stop being so shy/unconfident!
I have definitely got better at this, I’m less shy in Twitter chats etc., but I am still working on this. My most recent example is that I joined the gym and felt really insecure. I’d love to think that one day I’ll never feel like this about anything but as I’m sure most of you know, you never fully get rid of your shyness. I’ll keep working on it though!
- Be happy with what you’ve got
I definitely think I’ve been good at this lately. I’m now engaged to a wonderful man, I’ve just come back from a fabulous holiday, I’ve got a good and stable job that leaves me able to start saving for a mortgage, I’ve got some wonderful friends so I absolutely am happy with what I’ve got!
- …But never stop dreaming!
As much as I am happy with what I’ve got, it’s a natural thing to strive for more etc. I’m currently doing a management course with my work and I still dream of being a full time cake decorator one day. It’s a good thing to dream!
- Spend more time with family
I haven’t been so great with this, unfortunately. Things started off really well but I’ve had a busy few months so it slipped a bit. I’ve still got just under half a year to change things though! 🙂
- Do more for Charity
Again, I just haven’t had the time but it is still something I very much want to do. We are going to hold another bake sale at work in the coming months which will be for charity, so I’m definitely hoping to tick this off my list before the end of the year!
Overall, I think I’ve done pretty well! There are some things that I still need to work on but generally I have done everything I wanted to do, I just did need to keep building on it. Have you managed to stick with your goals this year?
