My November Goals.
We’re four days in and I’m already thinking November might just be the most trying month thus far! What a year it’s been, eh? I would think at this point my main goal for the weeks ahead is just to simply survive, but I’m going to try and keep a positive mindset – it’s all we can do really!
Despite the oh so depressing news lately, I’m feeling a little more like myself than I did this time last month. I’m excited to get stuck in to some Christmas content and also take some more day trips with Jord before the weather really turns. Plus, the arrival of November means we’re one month closer to this year being over… kidding, sort of.
Anyway, here’s what I’m looking forward to this month…
01. Up my content game! My blog has been slightly neglected over the last couple of months, which is really unlike me! But with Christmas on the horizon, it’s given me a bit of a push to commit to some fun festive content. I’d love to know if there’s anything you’d like to see. I have my usual cocktail posts lined up (yay for booze!), as well as some cosy home content, but I might skip the gift guides this year. I’ll have to see how busy I am as they can be quite time-consuming, but I do them every year so it would be a shame to skip them!
02. Do more of what I love. This feels like a time to get really selfish! I want to spend more of my time doing the things that make me happy – like spending the weekends having duvet days, sacking off work in the afternoons to nap or read, or ordering a nice dinner in on a weekday night. I spend way too much time putting restrictions on myself or feeling bad for being a bit indulgent, but I think the arrival of a second lockdown means I shouldn’t be so hard on myself! Is anyone else feeling the same?!
03. Enjoy my last month of my 20s! Oh my god I turn thirty next month and I am not ready! I never thought I would ever be bothered about ageing, I really think it’s privilege to grow old and enjoy life, but this is a bad year to turn such a milestone age! I think the thought of approaching 30 and knowing I won’t be able to celebrate properly or see my favourite people is tough. I’m sure a lot of people have felt like this this year, with lots of big life events put on hold. At least we’re all in the same boat, right?
It’s definitely going to be a strange month but I think we’ll be just fine. Sending love to anyone who needs it right now, be kind to yourself and take lots of naps.
Is there anything you’re looking forward to this month?
