April Goals Check-In

Happy Saturday!

It’s official! I’m on holidays, hooray!

I’ve been hesitant to write this post, as I completely missed most of my marks in the month of April, thus probably explaining the late post. However, as I hinted at in Breaking My Own Rules, I think it’ll be worth it in the end!

April Goals

  1. Friends & Family – Cousin’s baby shower – complete.
    It’s getting harder to pick goals for family and friends, however my cousin’s baby shower was coming up and I knew this something I wanted to help with where I could.
  2. Home –  organise pest control  – not complete.
    This is one of those things that have been on my to-do list, I just haven’t got around to organising it yet!
  3. Career – complete rotations – complete.
    Without going into too much detail, I’ve finished working within the other departments and I will return back to my original team once holidays are over.
  4. Self-Love – meditate once a week – not complete.
    It’s been quite the full on month, I probably would have benefited from meditating at least once in April. However, there’s always this month to do so!
  5. Growth – watch a documentary – not complete.
    To my knowledge I don’t remember watching a documentary?
  6. Health – Gym 2x a week – not complete.
    I started so well, I was going 3-4 times a week at the start of the month… and then all the public holidays hit.
  7. Finance – Reach $X mortgage excess – not complete.
    With my overseas adventuring only a few days away, my finances had been going towards the trip for the last month.
  8. Travel & Adventure – Purchase festival ticket – not complete.
    Sooooo, I’m not going to this particular festival anymore, so it seemed pretty void to try and complete this goal.
  9. Romance & Love – Hike together – complete.
    Well, what a bitter sweet goal. We went on our hike, and broke up the following day. Can’t say the break up was on the to-do list, but it’s what was needed and I am now on the way to healing.
  10. Blog Goals – 100 WordPress followers – complete.
    This goal was well and truly hit! Not only did I receive over 100 followers, I also have now received over 2,000 views. Not bad for a hobby blogger!

4/10… not ideal. Perhaps you’ve noticed from the more recent blog posts that my life is taking a bit of a different course. I never would have thought I would be travelling overseas this year (to be honest, it was to the point where I just never thought it was ever going to happen). Finances will rebuild and health is a ongoing journey opposed to a destination. As I often mention in these monthly posts, these goals simply give me direction, I don’t sit around feeling sorry for myself if I don’t hit these targets.

I know I didn’t go into great amounts of detail with these goals, however I feel like I’m just beginning to write excuses and justify my lack of actions when I do so. Next month will probably look a little different again, love and romance will be put on the back-burner and I will have more of a focus on self love and growth.

How’s your year progressing? I hope you’re making 2019 the year you want it to be!

Much Love,
Baby Sloth x
