How My 2020 is REALLY Going.

This is my three month check in. I want to re-centre and ground myself once again to see how my 2020 goals are panning out.

If you didn’t catch my 2020 goals post then go and check that out to see why I wanted to appoint myself these goals this year. So let’s get down to checking in with my goals.

Start Therapy

Short answer: check.

Long answer: I am so happy I set this goal for myself. I started therapy in early January and have had about 5 sessions of it. I have learnt worry management for the anxiety which started to form after losing my dad and I have also learnt skills on ‘activation’ for when I have depressive episodes. I can’t wait to keep going and growing my resilience with mental health and grief.

Get Stronger

I wanted to become physically and mentally stronger. That is something that I am working on and also feel like I’ve come much further in in the last three months. I have been being hitting the gym as much as I can to build my physical strength, I’ve started practicing yoga to build my physical and emotional health, I’ve been going to therapy to build my mental health, and I’ve been throwing myself into my faith to become spiritually strong.

I still have a long way to to be as strong as I want to be, but I’m proud of my progress so far!

Form and Develop More Healthy Relationships With Things Which I Struggle With

This is something I forgot was an official goal and got so happy when I saw it. I am feeling that I’ve been building healthy relationships with things such as food and people. I am becoming much more conscious about how to fuel my body and not just feed my body. I feel like this is an area I’m becoming much healthier in. Another good one is my need to please people. I am really working on that, and I’m just doing what I want regardless of other people. I’m less ashamed of who I am and I beat myself up less when I say or do something stupid.

I’ve still got a long way to go but I’m so PROUD of my progress so far!!

Expand My Education

This is something that I wanted to be a long term goal and I’ve got the ball rolling with it. In September I will be going to university🎉 I’ve mentioned it in a few posts across my social media but I wanted to share it a bit more here. I am going to university to study Education and Deaf Studies for three years and I’m so excited!! It is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while but with family circumstances I couldn’t but now I’m in a position where I can go and move to a CITY (that’s a big thing for a country girl lol). I’m really excited to learn and to move and to start taking further steps in my career!

Be More Intentional With My Words and My Actions

This is a goal that is has a bit of a slower progress on than the rest BUT THATS OKAY! I’m only three months in and I’m NOT going to beat myself up about it. I think in some ways my mind is being much more aware of intentionality and so I am now going to start more steps forward towards being much more intentional. I did a post about intentional living and to be honest I’ve had a bit of a set back with my life being so turbulent recently.

My plan for the next few months for this goal are to just really study intentionality and apply this to all areas of my life.

Have A Beauty No Buy Until My Birthday (9th May)

Well this goal I well and truly fucked up on. I have purchased LESS makeup but I didn’t have a no buy at all which makes me mad at myself. However I’m not gonna beat myself up about it because that’s not the point of this. So what I’m going to do is reassess my goal and realise how unrealistic this was at the start. So my next goal is to do just one month of a beauty no buy, so I will be spending all of April not buying ANY beauty products and work month by month!

So friends that is how my 2020 is REALLY going! I have assessed my goals and seen my progress so far. What do you think of this type of post?? Should I share this at the 6 month mark too? LET. ME. KNOW!
