June Goals

. Sunday, 10 June 2018 .



I finally got my act together and cleared all crap off my couch. So right now, at this very moment indeed, I am using the couch for its intended purpose: sitting! Anyone else just use their couch/chair/floor as a place to dump stuff in? It's usually clothes/laundry/random crap from bag for me.



I'm trying to prove a point to my mum that I'm definitely not the only lazy person in the world to do this....




Anyway, today is the 10th of June. JUNE!!!! Half a year has gone by. We are halfway to Christmas! Also it's winter and I'm just so in my element in this cold weather and that's done wonders for my mood. I thought today I'll take some time and make a list for my goals for the month because this is something I'm trying to do more of regularly on here. After a whirlwind couple of months, I'm starting to feel a bit more grounded now so here's hoping that little goals will help keep that momentum.




I've been doing lots of writing in my journal lately, just trying to make sense of all my thoughts. I think it was the great Joan Didion that said "I don't know what I think until I write it down" and I've been finding that to be true now more than ever. Something in me is asking for an undoing. For an unlearning and a rebuilding. I don't know how that's going to look like but it sure is exciting! But more on that later. Let's go back to #goals:




01. Blog twice a week. Part of this undoing is a lot of internal monologue so what better way to sort myself out than by sharing everything (well, mostly) that's going on in my head? My blogging has mostly been sporadic, in the moment bursts. I write everything in real time and type straight to the platform. That's just always been my style. This is not shade to anyone who plans and preps for their blog. I'm a fan of doing your own thing and doing what feels good so more power to you, sis! I'm just saying that this is my process. So this goal is really just me sticking to the process, but doing it twice a week! It seems achievable. I think.




02. Build new routines. This is something I'm still working on. I find that most days the intent is there, but it's the execution that I can't quite get right. There's just so many distractions and before I know it, it's midnight and I'm still wide awake and full of energy. Which brings me to my next goal...




03. Minimise distractions. Yes, that can sometimes mean social media. But it's also binge watching Netflix (side note - I started watching The Client List and it's just so trashy and addicting and I love it), saying 'just one more episode' and somehow ending up watching three more. It's endlessly scrolling through Tumblr and Pinterest until I'm so inspired that I want TO GET UP AND DO SOMETHING RIGHT NOW. Even if it's nearly 1 am and I have to get up early. I'm going to try work on minimising these distractions and self-discipline is hard AF am I right?




04. Heal. Undo. Rebuild. Like I said before, something inside me is calling for an undoing. I don't know exactly how you self-heal, but I'm guessing it's one of those things that there's no 'right' way or one method to it. So I'm just going to try and write heaps and make sense of what needs to be healed. Mostly lots of self-reflecting, which I'm really good at, but now I've got to action these thoughts. I've never had the time for inner work before. I'm super excited for this undoing!




05. Stick to a budget. I'm trying to save and have better financial habits... I mean, I'm good at budgeting but not so good at sticking to it. One of my tactics is to leave my eftpos at home. Haha. Any tips for me?!




So that's about it. June is looking to be a conscious slowing down and being more mindful. But right now the crockpot is calling me (I've been slow roasting some ribs) and there's a potato salad I need to make. Happy Sunday, my darlings!
