A new week and a new month, how refreshing. I like the start of new things. They give me hope that this time I can do better than the last and the motivation to try.
I thought this doodle was particularly apt for the new day, week, month and hoped it would bring you a little bit of invigoration to get going.
It's quite easy, I find, to be pulled down by the daily grind or by our personal problems or even by other people's personal problems. It can feel like wading through treacle and like there is no end in sight. I try really hard to divide my time and life by the months and have them be like chapters of a book. That way, if one month has been particularly hard, you can sort of draw a line under it and start afresh in the new one.
My October was busy and challenging but also rewarding. I don't want to draw a line under it and forget it, but more draw a line and start again with renewed energy. I want to take a moment to think about my goals for this month (more time at home, more photography, more time with Darcy) and not focus on how much I was away in October and how much focus I had to put on things that ultimately, were not the 'real' stuff of life.
If October was a big month for you (for good or for bad), take a quiet moment today to think about what you want from this new chapter and to breath deep, sit still and re-energise. It's going to be a good one!
If you'd like to share in the comments what you want to do in this new month, please do! If you'd prefer to keep that as a mental note- I feel ya!
