lifestyle, personal October Goals 2nd October 2018

Hello October

Happy Tuesday and I hope you’re all having a great week so far? How was everyone’s September and what did you get up to? Can you believe we’re now officially in the final quarter of this year? I think October has to be my favourite month, so I’m feeling pretty good about it.

As I was hoping, I had a great month last month. Our little break in East Sussex was exactly what I needed and I enjoyed every second of it! We visited a few castles, museums, went swimming in the sea with the dog, went out for dinner and thoroughly “got away from it all” for a few days. I’ve been thinking of doing a little trip diary on what we got up to while we were there – what do you guys think? Since travel isn’t something I post about often. I might do it anyway because it’s fun to reminisce.

I also stuck to my plans to reach out to brands again, and much to my excitement I do have a few things in the pipeline. This made me do a little happy dance because they’re a little victory for me and the kind of reassurance I needed as of late. Securing any opportunity, big or small, is amazing and I’m always proud of myself when I do!

So given that September has been one of my favourite months of this year, October has some shoes to fill. I’ve said it before but this time of year is my favourite. Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas, New Year – it’s just happy and festive and exciting. And so I can really enjoy the closing months of the year I think my main objection and goal for this month is a simple but difficult one at the same time.

STAY ORGANISED

This means anything from my blog content to keep the house organised. I want to plan ahead for Christmas and upcoming birthdays. And above all, keep on top of my damn emails (because I’m truly terrible with that) and organising some time for me. So it’s a combination of a few goals all wrapped up into one.

I don’t know about everyone else, but I feel a little unhinged when things aren’t organised. I’m by no means a control freak and I’m very laid back (I think?) – but if things are a mess, or I have put things off I end up unravelling a little bit. It puts me in this anxious place and I get myself worked up over stuff that really never should have been an issue. I suppose it’s just the way my mind works. I like things clear and taken care of since it means I don’t have anything to “worry” about and I don’t end up with nasty surprises!

I’m looking forward to October, I have another good feeling about it and would love to hear what you guys have planned.

Until next time ♡

    Great goals, Laura. I think staying organized is a great way to keep your head in the game. My work desk is always so organized, but my home is far from it. I’ve found that this is because I don’t take my home as seriously as my work, even when I should! I do keep the blog desk clean, though!

    These are great goals! I always find it hard to stay organized with a 1 year old! But we’re working on it!

    I have to agree with you as September was definitely an amazing month for me, but as we get closer to Christmas, every month just get that little bit more exciting.

    Staying organised is one thing that I need in my life at all times. Not knowing what I’m doing or having messy surroundings is something that just gets me in a panic.

    My October goal is to get as much of blogmas complete and to actually enjoy myself doing it. Again, I’ve got to stay organised.

    I can totally relate to unravelling when things aren’t in order! I’m awful with it. My anxiety is definitely the absolute worst around organization so I constantly need to keep it in check. October is a great month of the year, I think its the perfect weather, not too hot or cold (usually) and all the Autumn colours really start to show in nature. And all the winter drinks and xmas offers rear their heads, too. So exciting!! Hope you have a fab month 🙂
