So as I mentioned before... life.... And I sat down thinking I need to update my goals. And I didn't want to because I thought they have been a complete and utter fail for the last month and a half. But then I was amazed, because I haven't done quite as horribly as I thought. Not claiming a win, but not as horrible as I thought.
Goal 1: Deal with stress better.
Part 1: Yoga
I'm still doing yoga and still proud of how well I am doing with it. As of the last week of April, I have 65 rocks in my yoga jar. That's an average of 3.8 yoga sessions per week.
Part 2: Read The Power of Now
This still didn't happen.
Part 3: The new implementation of taking time to breathe and notice what is going on around me.
Most of the time I forgot, but sometimes I remembered. I'm doing better at remembering when I wake up in the morning.
Goal 2: Be more positive/have a positive outlook on life
Part 1: The Gratitude Jar
Last time I said that my little slips were completely overflowing the jar. So I dumped all those in a bag (and then I dumped the bag in a drawer... I'm still deciding what to do with the slips), and started over. I missed several days here and there, and those probably total up to missing at least a week, but I am back at it and doing better at being consistent.
Part 2: Making time for things I love
Things I am doing lately that I have been loving:
I'm making a blanket for Junior, Heather and Tim's baby who will arrive in July.
While I've been working on that I've been enjoying some shows.
(Season two. Whoa)
(Still slowly working my way through this one)
And I just started:
I also really enjoyed laughing while reading this book:
I also have loved spending time with good friends and that usually involves good food too. I also planted some flowers and put my lawn chair out on the patio so I could enjoy some sunshine. We are getting some warmer weather, which makes me very happy.
Goal 3: Be kinder/negative self-talk
I don't know whether anything in here can be called progress or success. So I'll work on it again for another month.
