THIS ^ Lovely Ana, from over at Namaste From Ananya, posted this on Instagram the other day. As I was scrolling through my feed, I came across this, read the caption, and stopped. We are 6 months in, with 6 left to go. As I was writing this post, I read Ana's and she had said two very important things. Being 6 months in, "It’s an opportunity:
see how far you’ve come
far you’ve set yourself up for the year ahead"
"It’s also an opportunity:
panic to set in as we realise those goals that we set for the New Year
have gathered some or
a lot of dust."
I came into this year incredibly sure of what I wanted of myself, and very motivated - ready to push myself to do what I needed to do, for what I wanted.
I am proud to say, so far, I've done relatively well and am semi- on track!
I am also happy to say I have a relatively good idea of what I need to do in the coming 6 months.
BUT, I can 100% say there are things I was supposed to have done by now that I haven't.
Maybe it's just the eternal optimist in me - but, I don't want to focus on this negative.
I want to use the positive things I've managed to achieve as a proof of my ability,
something which I can use to fuel me in reaching my next goals.
I have been a little out of the blogging world lately, and I can thank some of my other goals for that.
I have been working hard on other things, but slowly and surely I'm starting to catch up with some of you all.
I am now heading into exams (and one final 50% assignment! Pretending like that isn't worrying :P).
I am so ready for holidays, I am ready to have finished one semester - and to reflect.
I am ready for time to sit down and set up for the remainder of this year.
I am ready to focus on some different projects this holidays.
I am ready to get to invest some more time into blogging.
I am ready to give some more time to myself.
I am ready to refocus.
I am ready.
(I'm a total Type A person, so I'm not even going to pretend that I wasn't thoroughly excited about the fact that those sentences above - they turned into the perfect inverted pyramid :P
Yes, I'm a total geek. Ok. Back to being serious.)
I am ready.
And, as Ana put it,
"There's a level of excitement coupled with enthusiasm and focus."
What are you ready for as we are now 6 months in, and 6 months out from the end of this year? And, how were your first 6 months in! ☺️
