The first few months of this year I took loads of pictures. Of everything. Tiny, insignificant moments that weren't really anything in particular. These last few months I've gotten out of the habit a bit and its a shame because I really love looking back over them. I don't think I've ever really talked about it on here but I'm a believer in making monthly goals rather than yearly ones. I find them far more flexible and more suited to my life. Usually I try to make 4 or 5 a month - rarely anything huge or life changing but just little things that I want to focus on.
This month I've set myself just one, to make the most of everything.
I've been feeling like this summer is going far too fast, this time at home is precious and I don't want it to just fly by. I almost feel like I'm wasting this time off because I'm not really getting anything 'done'. Its something I need to work on. I need to make myself believe that time off is okay, and necessary. Last week I spent all morning reading a book... and spent the rest of the day feeling guilty because I had other things I could have been doing. How ridiculous is that? Its my summer holidays, it should be a break. Sometimes my mind is crazy.
So this month I'm going to take more pictures, I'm going to spend all morning reading, I'm not going to stress over an unpaid, voluntary internship, I'm not going to worry if I can't find a job because I'm sure I'll figure it out whatever happens, I'm going to hang out with my mum and make more of an effort to spend time with friends, I'm going to take long walks & I probably will spend too much time with my dog, Whatever I'm doing, I'm going to make the most of it & refuse to feel guilty for choosing how to spend my own time.
So hello July,
