JUNE IS THE MONTH

MF_StartToday

Welcome to June! I wish I could take 2014 out for tea and tell it to slooow down one bit! Phew! Is it just me or this year is going by quite fast? Mainly, these past five months I’ve been focusing on fun client projects (which I hope to share with you soon!). In terms of personal work, I feel like I haven’t completed as much as I had planned to accomplish by this time of the year. I’ve done so many other things that I’m happy about; though, I still can’t help to be somewhat hard on myself (must be my Virgo nature!). Gah! This is rather frustrating considering that I love putting a checkmark next to my resolution’s list at the end of the year. However! The year is not over and I have a plan! (!!!).

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to explain. So! For the next 28 days, starting today, June 2nd, I would like to will focus on a couple of goals. I know three is a magic number, but since I have a thing for even numbers (absolutely love them for no specific reason) I would like to go with one…two…three…four! Four tangible goals! Here they are (in no particular order):

+ GO ON AN ADVENTURE ONCE A WEEK.
Explore, adventure, discover, learn about new places are three of my all-time favorite activities. I’ll make of these a weekly practice. Connecting with nature not only brings me peace, but it also makes me feel refreshed + recharged!

+ TACKLE PERSONAL SIDE PROJECT(S).
Many personal projects in the works, yet there is one of them in particular that I’m very enthusiastic about. I hope to be able to share it with you from the beginning of the creative process!

+ STICK TO A DAILY MORNING ROUTINE.
I used to be a night owl, until a few months back where I transitioned into being more of an early bird. There’s something special about both. Nothing compares to working on serene, quite nights or watching the sun welcome you to a new day every morning. Lately, I’ve been having a hard time sticking to a morning routine so I’ll be working towards making it a daily habit!

+ PRACTICE SELF-CARE. EVERYDAY.
Oh this one! Good + balanced nutrition, exercise, meditation and journaling. I’ve been fairly good about these since the beginning of the year. Nonetheless, I know that I can push myself further and that’s where it’s at!

Hope everyone has an amazing start to a new month! And, if you feel the same way and would like to share your goals, please feel free to do so! Anything that you have been wanting to do this year and haven’t gotten a chance to start. This is the time! You. Can. DO IT!

Alright! I’m ready! Way to make myself accountable! (Eeek!)

xo,

m.

PS: If you are curious and will like to take a peek at this little personal challenge of mine, I’ll be documenting my progress/journey on instagram under #tangiblefour.

*Fun Fact: According to Wikipedia, “June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year in Northern Hemisphere!,” and since I love daylight…I’m looking forward to getting lots more done! :) Enjoy the week!
