July has been a crazy, weird, emotional, long month full of ups and downs. Off the top of my head i can’t even remember any of the goals i set myself for July but ill be honest in saying i probably haven’t reached any of them. I was all ready for July to be a great month for me and my blog and if im honest it all went tits up..
July’s Ups and Downs
A lot seemed to happen through July! I ended up working some crazy shifts at work which meant my sleeping pattern got ridiculously messed up, which then meant i was just constantly tired and in a state of all i wanted to do was sit or lie down and do nothing when i wasn’t working.
I seemed to loose all motivation to write, to even post on my socials anymore and i just felt myself slipping away into this unknown area of nothingness. I was tired, grumpy, lethargic and i just wasn’t me. Instead of trying to force myself to write all the time i simply took a step back from forcing myself to write something and just had a break. I put July on hold with the hopes of coming back refreshed and ready for august and the coming months.
Ive managed to get myself into a routine so even if i work till midnight or i have the night off i’m only watching tv or on my laptop till 1am and i wake myself up by 9.30am because ive found that if i keep sleeping in i mess up my sleeping pattern but i also end up sleeping too much and it makes me feel worse. So whether i work or not i’ve managed to get myself into a nice routine that made me feel some what better and a little more alive and human. Its been working well so i’m going to stick to it and hopefully see even more of a difference in my energy and how i’m feeling.
So, as we are now heading into August i am feeling refreshed, and excited for all thats to offer this month. I’ve decided that in order to keep any idea issues at bay and to not stress myself out with everything else going on that i will be posting twice a week; Wednesdays and Sundays! This is a much easier schedule for me that works around my part time job as well as all the other things going on in my life. It also means that i can spend a little more time on posts rather than rushing them because i have more to write!
I want to get out a little more during august! If anyone of you follow me on instagram or twitter then you’ll know that just a few days ago i got a puppy! He’s a gorgeous cavapoo named Tucker! So i want to get out more with him and go on walks to different places!
I have decided not to set myself any blog goals for august simply because of all the things going on i don’t want to stress myself out with goals only i’m holding myself accountable too. However, my one goal is to keep up with my twice weekly blog posts and to get out more. Two little goals that i think will be pretty simple to achieve!
Here’s to August
I am thoroughly excited for august and hoping for it to be a good month full of blogging and adventures! I hope everyone else has a wonderful month and i can’t wait to see you in my next post!
