Happy September everyone! I can’t believe we’re here already – summer is over, my 21st birthday is right on the horizon, and we’re now finally in the month where I’ll be beginning my European adventure!
And rather than reflecting back on the last month, I’m looking forward to some great times coming, and in order to have a totally positive and happy month, here are the 10 things I’m doing this month to boost myself:
1. Getting crazy organised
I’m a total organisation freak, and I love planning my time, writing to-do lists etc, and while it might seem kinda crazy, planning every detail of my life gives me total peace.
2. Goal of the week
The feeling of success is totally satisfying, I think everyone can agree on that, so to give myself a little boost, I’m starting to set a ‘goal’ for each week. Now we’re not talking anything major, it can be anything from finishing a book to clearing out my wardrobe to completing a blog post or project; just something that I want to get done.
3. Strict savings goals
With my upcoming trips to Europe and America, as well as keeping my future in mind, I’ve been setting myself some pretty strict savings and spending plans, and while sometimes it means I get annoyed with myself when I want to be frivolous, seeing my account balances go up and my spending going down is a pretty nice feeling.
4. Meal planning
Another organisation point, I’m making a real effort at the moment to plan my meals and snacks in an attempt to ensure I’m eating right. With all our training for Run Disney in January, and wanting to get generally fitter and healthier, the key is really in the planning.
5. Tough Mudder training
In a moment of madness, I agreed to join a team of people from work taking part in a Tough Mudder event at the end of the month, eek! I’m throwing myself into training because its getting so close and I’m totally terrified of some of the obstacles, but I know it will be a great experience!
6. Keeping a tidy room
(My mum will laugh at this) A tidy bedroom makes me feel totally at peace, and I’ve just spent the last week getting back on top of things after a slight lapse.. I’ve got new shelves up, I’ve reorganised my candles, and I’m starting the month with clean bedding, cos who doesn’t love fresh sheets!?
7. More sewing projects
In order to keep myself busy (and not spending money) I’m really getting back into sewing. I’ve got running costumes to make, cosplays to finish and plenty of other ideas to bring to reality, as well as a wardrobe full of my fabric hoard that I need to use!
8. More Twitter chats
I still consider myself a bit of a Twitter newbie, but I’m definitely getting there, and I recently took part in my first Twitter chat and I LOVED IT. I love chatting to other bloggers, and I’m finding chats to be so positive that I’m really looking forward to getting involved with lots more.
9. My Disney girls
For a bunch of girls I haven’t actually met yet, these girls make me so happy. I’m lucky enough to have ‘met’ so many amazing friends through Instagram and Twitter, all of which share my love of Disney, and its gone from occasional comments to Facebook chat and Whatsapp groups, and I really hope we get to all hang out some time soon because they’re fab.
10. EUROPEAN ROAD TRIP
YES. At the end of this month I’ll be departing on the first leg of my solo road trip around Europe! As well as a weekend in Disneyland Paris with the family for my 21st birthday, I’m gonna be hitting some amazing places in France, Switzerland, Germany and The Netherlands in a two-week extravaganza tour of cities, castles and countryside, and I’m so excited!
Such exciting times ahead, as well as a month packed with blog posts so bring it on!
What are you up to this September?
