Mid-year check-in

At the beginning of the year I decided to choose a guiding word for 2018 rather than setting myself more specific goals. After having such a horrible time in 2017 when I didn’t feel like myself and I rarely ever felt happy, I put my foot down and decided that I was no longer going to feel that way. The word I chose was “Happiness”.

We’re now 6 months into the year, which is kind of hard to believe, and today I wanted to have a bit of a check-in session. I want to talk about what’s being going well, what hasn’t been going quite so well, and how I plan to move forward going into the next 6 months of 2018.

*Insert generic introduction about my absence from the blog.*

Just kidding! But seriously, I’m sorry for being so bad at blogging this year!

May has been a pretty good month for me. The weather has been fantastic, and the sunshine always puts me in the best mood. I’ve really made the most of being a freelancer and spending as much time as possible outside. Even if it’s just taking my laptop outside and working from my garden, it really does put a smile on my face.

After what felt like the longest winter I’ve ever experienced, I was happy to see the sun this week.

It’s been so warm outside that I’ve been able to take my laptop outside and work from my garden. This is what working for yourself is all about! Plus I’m getting that all important Vitamin D which always seems to help lift my mood.
