Since we're halfway through the year and no, I can't believe it either, I decided I'd write about how those pesky resolutions I made way back in January. I read that most people don't keep their resolutions and that's certainly true for me. I find it very difficult to keep resolutions and promises to myself and always end up giving up. Is it because I don't think I'm worth it? I think I'm just a bit lazy when I have promises and duties to everyone else too. I always seem to come last on my list of priorities. Maybe I should at least become third after my family and work commitments? A half-year resolution has been made.
❥ Get more organised
I've kind of kept this one. I am much more organised in terms of time and I make sure all of my assignments are done, e-mails are replied to, appointments are attended on time and blog posts are scheduled days in advance most weeks. Before I was so disorganised I would be running around like a headless chicken in the minutes leading up to leaving for school but now, not so much.
❥ Remember to be silly
I've remembered it but I haven't succeeded. While I do have my moments the first half of this year has been just as stressful as the last half of last year so I haven't really had more than a few opportunities to really let my hair down and be a bit daft as I'm constantly sorting something out. However it is an ongoing process and I have a feeling that the last half of this year will really pick up.
❥ Better my beauty self
This I have done. I've been vigilant with my skincare routine and my skin is looking much better for it. I've bought pretty much all new make up and the things I haven't replaced I have cleaned to the best of my ability. I've also been trying out a lot more brands than I ever thought I would so this one, so far is a big success.
❥ Remind the people I love how much I love them
Every. Single. Day.
❥ Work hard and allow myself to play
Let's be honest, I haven't really been working hard these past six months but I will be in the latter half so yes, I shall definitely be trying to keep this this one.
❥ Read and watch more non-fiction
While I haven't read any non-fiction apart from the news, I have been watching a lot of documentaries with boyfriend on Netflix. We've got through 80% of the ones we thought were interesting and we try to have an 'educational night' once a week.
I'm trying, I truly am.
