I’m not going to lie guys, I am struggling with my Instagram account right now. I reached my goal of 6,500 followers, started worrying less about the perfection of my content, and started sharing my life through my stories and my engagement plummeted. I know a lot of bloggers/influencers are struggling right now, so I like to share out my links and ask that you drop your links here so we can all support each other! 🙂
Please drop your social media links in the comments so we can all check you out! 🙂
Is spring actually going to come soon because I’m SO sick of the cold! I managed to get most of my bucket list done for winter, even hitting my Instagram followers goal (for now at least) which is always tough for me! Check it out below.
As anticipated, winter is moving by slowly. We still have well over a month left before Spring comes and I can be hopeful for summer. I was sick of the cold the day it started. I’ve gotten some things done on my winter bucket list and I think I can actually finish it if I can hit my social media goals!
My word for 2017 was enough. You can read more about it here. And it may have taken me a whole 365 days to really grasp the word, but I did it. I don’t feel guilty on lazy days, I don’t drain all my energy for other people, I’ve had enough of that and I’m not going back. Though I could work on my self-esteem and thinking that I look good enough, I’m happy with the progress I made.
My word for 2018 is presence.
I truly struggle with being okay with where I am. I’m constantly thinking of my next steps. Where are we traveling to next? When will I have to start looking for a new apartment? Where is my next move? How long should I stay at this job? I think of everything except the present.
Because I also get caught up in the past a lot. Why did I do that? How do I get past all of this regret from high school and college? Why did I trust him? What made me ignore important signs? Why couldn’t I have been better?
But what I really need to do is ask myself questions about what’s happening right. now. How do I feel today? What can I do today that will help me feel more present? What have I accomplished today? Can I do better today or make an effort to do better tomorrow? Am I appreciating what I have? Do I need to relax or do I need to go out?
I want to be fully committed to where I am right now instead of searching for happiness down the road. I don’t want to work for the weekend and live just to die. I want every day to be special, even if it’s just me rocking out in the car and taking time to myself or as big as going on an awesome vacation.
In 2018 I will be present. What’s your word for this year?
I finally have to accept that winter is here. Luckily, the holidays are just around the corner and that’s an exciting and fun time to me! 🙂 My winter bucket lists are usually pretty small because I find it harder to get motivated when it’s so cold and dark outside. I might add more as time passes! Here’s my list for this winter – what’s one thing you want to do this season?
It’s cold af out and definitely winter. I thoroughly enjoyed the fall weather this year and made the best of it while I could. I am so so so so not looking forward to winter, it’s my least favorite season – but also the one I plan the most trips for. Here is everything I did this fall:
Go apple picking
Make apple sauce
Go pumpkin picking
Visit 3 out of state locations New York, Pennsylvania, and Arkansas
Go hiking in 2 places Woops…maybe in the spring!
Make plans with my friends!
6,200 Instagram followers
2,000 WordPress followers
Go to 2 concerts Nightmare Before Christmas Live and Brand New!
Fall is hereeeee, especially now because the weather isn’t 80 degrees anymore. I love Tim Burton movies and Halloween and flannels and beanies and concert season so I’m pretty excited about this. Here is what I’m planning to get done and what I’ve done so far, I made a few changes because some of the goals I set ended up being wayyyyyyyy out of reach so here’s a new, improved, and updated fall bucket list! Did you know winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st? That seems so weird to me. What’s one thing you want to do this fall?
