But despite the lovely weather I’ve been feeling a bit low this month. There’s no real reason why, it’s just been one of those months where everything keeps going wrong and it makes you feel a bit doom and gloom.
I spent a lot of time sitting around and feeling sorry for myself, and I didn’t make a lot of progress with my April goals. I haven’t done any writing and even though I did visit the crafty store, I didn’t feel inspired to create anything.
So for May I’m going to set smaller goals with the aim of cheering myself up a little bit!
1) Start writing a personal diary
If I write how I’m feeling when I’m feeling a bit down, I might be able to figure out what’s causing it instead of just wallowing in self-pity. It’ll also act as a rant-book so I can get everything out and feel better.
2) Do more of what I love and experiment with new things
I talked to my partner about how I’m feeling and he suggested trying out some new things and getting a hobby. I already have a few ideas so I’ll be putting the plan in motion in May.
It’s important to make time outside or work for the things you enjoy. For me, it’s reading, playing video games, learning something new on the piano or going for a walk and taking photos. Hopefully by making time for these activities and trying out something new, I’ll lift my spirits.
Sorry this wasn’t as happy as my usual posts, but I like to be honest!
Here’s a few of my favourite pictures from April:
Me, my sister and our friend went out one Saturday night. It was nice to just let our hair down and dance and sing (badly) the night away!
Last but not least, this was Lily’s unimpressed face after we showered her. She had fallen in a pond and was soaked so we made her nice and clean – even if she did ignore us for the rest of the night!
