March Goals

March Goals

Hello March!

I’m a little late welcoming the month in, seeing as it is already the tenth. Seriously, where has the time gone? Please slow down!

February being such a short month, whizzed past me before I could blink. Usually it is a boring month with not much to look forward to, well, except for Valentine’s Day. However, this year it really wasn’t so bad. My Mum and I finally booked our Spa experience at the Verulamium Spa in St Albans, which was a gift from my boyfriend, Anthony, at Christmas. The experience included full use of the facilities and also included a choice of one of the 25 minute treatments; we both opted for a back massage. Honestly, I could have someone massage my back all day.

February also meant going to see the Strictly Come Dancing Tour at the O2. I had been counting down the days since first getting the tickets. I was so excited. For the first half of the show, we were sat up in the heavens as they were the only seats available when we booked. The seats would have been perfectly fine if we were watching a musician, but we weren’t. Instead the dancers looked like little puppets and we felt so detached, as though we weren’t really watching it live. During the interval, we were naughty and found empty seats closer to the stage. Thank God we did because the atmosphere was a thousand times better.

For Valentine’s, Anthony and I kept it simple. We celebrated by going for dinner at Zizzi’s Italian in St Albans as they had a Valentine’s offer on. I think it was something like £19.99 each for a three course meal, and they weren’t shy with portion sizes either. It was enough to fill our tummies. I think mine was full after the starter so I struggled with the rest. We then enjoyed a drink in a local pub before going home.

Then at the end of the month, myself and two friends enjoyed a week in Lincolnshire, as previously blogged about. And then all of a sudden, it’s March.

 

{Beautiful blossom}

I am so, so happy that finally the Earth is slowly stretching its limbs again, after a long winter of hibernating. That is including myself. As a child, I never realised how the changing seasons affected me physically, mentally and emotionally. I personally don’t like darkness or gloominess; the curtains have to be opened as soon as the sun is up, allowing the light to flood in. Don’t get me wrong, I like a good old storm once in a while, whilst sheltering myself indoors, marveling at the menacing sky. Or a cool, summer’s night sat outside; a shawl draped across my shoulders and insects dancing in the candlelight. Otherwise, I wish there was daylight all day, everyday.

At last the days are getting slightly warmer and it’s wonderful to feel the warmth of the sun on my face. I especially love the sound of birds during the early hours of dawn, or twilight. I know not everyone is a fan, but I honestly can’t think of a sound more beautiful. It’s also so nice to leave the house in the morning when it’s light outside. It definitely makes getting up a whole lot easier. It amazes me how much happier I, and everyone else is when the sun is shining. I feel as though anything is possible. The sun also gives me an excuse to go out and take a thousand photo’s of blossom trees or spring flowers, something I miss doing in the winter.

{I have a slight obsession with pink at the moment. It’s everywhere! So I couldn’t help but treat myself to the prettiest pink blooms. Swoon.}

  

Many of my goals from last month’s blog post still apply. But here are just a few extra things that I think I would really benefit from this month. Maybe they are similar to yours.

MAKE PLANS 

My friends and I have spoken a lot recently about making plans for the year. When I look back at what I did last year, there were so many empty days that could have been taken advantage of, to go and explore a new town, or try something new for instance. We all want to create lasting memories, big and small, that make each day different and exciting. Sometimes, if there is something you want to do, or somewhere you want to see, you have to stop dwelling over it and instead, live it. Especially in the summer month’s when you just want to be outside, soaking up every second of every day. My friends and I have booked to take part in a Colour Rush in June for example. I know I mentioned in a previous post how terrible I am at running, but we’ll see how it goes. I’m just looking forward to getting covered in paint if I’m honest.

BE CONSISTENT 

At the moment I’m trying to write a blog post whenever I get the chance. Hence why this post has been delayed. It is hard juggling Uni alongside hobbies and everything else. Ideally, I would like to be consistent, not just at creating blog content, but also in everything else I do. Sometimes I start a project but then leave it, not touching it again for days, or even weeks. Terrible, I know, which is why being consistent is something I want to improve upon this month. My brain is all over the place at the moment; it hops from one thought to the next which can be so overwhelming. This week I have tried tackling my to-do list one thing at a time and it does help.

PUT THE PHONE DOWN 

Guilty. I’m sure most of you are as well. I waste so much of my time going through my phone that it is not healthy. Of course, it’s ok now and then to scroll through Instagram/Facebook or browse the ‘New In’ range at your favourite clothing store, but endless scrolling, it’s not good. However, to be fair to myself, I wouldn’t say I’m addicted. I could quite easily not look at it if I am enjoying myself and am preoccupied. It is on the days when I’m at home and I start to feel bored that the phone creeps into my hand. I also make sure to keep my phone in my pocket when i’m waiting for the bus, or walking down the street for example, as I love to people watch and observe my surroundings. So many people walk with their heads down, living life through a screen. I’m not criticizing anyone because I understand the temptation, but sometimes there is a time and a place in which phones should not be allowed.

What are your goals for March?

Love Georgie
