It feels like ages since I did one of these, but maybe it’s just because I’ve lived a lifetime in the past 30 days. Has that ever happened to you? How has your October been so far? I’m doing much better after the events of the past few weeks. Sometimes I still feel pangs of sadness and anger, but they don’t linger as long and I’m able to look to the future with feelings of hope instead of despair. Taking back that power has been monumental in my life.
I’m hoping for a fresh start in October. I think I need it, so I’m considering taking a weekend off to get away. Get up earlier to maximize the shorter days and breathe in the crisp air as much as possible. Celebrate the season and do something spooky. Go somewhere I’ve never been before. But before we dive into all of that, let’s see how September went, shall we?
Think about the future of this blog—I didn’t really spend much time invested in My Pixie Blog in September, if I’m being honest. I’m not sure where to take this little blog of my mine. Will it lead to a book deal, help me quit my day job, or secure additional paid opportunities? Maybe not. But it makes my heart happy and I need this blog as much as it needs me so maybe that’s enough for now.
Read one book—yikes. I mean, I almost read a book. Does that count? Yea, I didn’t think so either
Spend more time outdoors—Yes! We had days when it wasn’t muggy and rainy, and I took advantage of them all
Entertain visitors!—Yes! Though I’ve yet to host a dinner party, we’re making strides and have had quite a few friends and family members stop by so far. It’s nice to fill the house with laughter.
Let’s move on to October, and some goals I’d like to accomplish this month:
Read 1-2 books (doable, me thinks)
Set aside time for self-care—get more manicures, get a haircut (find a new hairdresser in my area!), maybe make that massage appointment finally, go to yoga, spend time meditating, etc.
Be kind to myself. I struggle with this and have especially over the last few weeks. I vow to change this because I deserve it
Book a vacation; if I can’t find someone to come with me, I go alone. I need this
