Life Lately


We're in June already, this year's racing by! Anyway, today I thought I'd give you a little life update - I think its been over three years since I last did one of these sorts of posts so I think an update is in order. Don't worry, I'm not going to be updating you on the past three years, no, that'd be too much. 

The past six months of my life have been a huge learning curve for me. After not having the best of years last year and promising myself I'd take it slow this year, I've been making baby steps towards my goals of getting out more and it's working. I'm more independent now than I ever was before and it feels great.

I've been keeping myself busy mainly by pursuing my favourite hobbies, check out my 10 great new hobby ideas for 2019 post here, sewing, blogging and creative writing and things are going well with each of them. I've taken the idea to not say so much what I'm going to do in terms of my goals and showing results instead, otherwise I just won't end up doing what I say I'm going to do and it makes achieving my goals harder. I still set some goals to meet each month though.

I've done a lot of sewing over the past six months, I'm really into festival fashion so I draw a lot of inspiration from there - think glitter, holographic and metallic crop tops and shorts etc. I still need to improve my sewing as I'm not the neatest of sewers but I'm getting there. 

I'm currently saving up for an online creative writing course, I need to get better at developing characters in fiction writing and I really want to explore poetry some more, so I'm really looking forward to that. Plus, it's something to keep me busy as I get pretty bored easily.

At the moment, I've got no plans for the summer, I'm taking each day/week as it comes and keeping an open mind. The best thing about doing this is that I'm seeing progress week by week in terms of my confidence and managing anxiety, which can still be a problem at times. 

Overall, I'm pretty content with how life's going, I feel like I'm finally back on track.
