Who else has instantly got in the mood to get ~*spooky*~? October is my absolute favorite month! Maybe that has something to do with it being my birthday month, or the beautiful complete transformation of the season that gives me a sense of completeness. I always welcome in October with open arms, but this year I’m especially excited. This year marks 21 times around the sun. With such a milestone birthday, I want to make this month my b*tch.
September was a month full of realizations. It seemed like the Universe was always throwing tests at me. Some I passed, some I failed – but so many lessons were learned. Faced with so much adversity, I was forced to grow through discomfort. September was hard. That’s just how simply I can put it. I am still here, and am ready to reap the rewards October has for me.
✩ OCTOBER EXCITEMENT ✩
Every year I say that I want to visit a pumpkin patch, or go to one of those spooky year. Every year I end up passing out on the couch while watching Halloween town. I think maybe it’s time to break the cycle. Nobody is going to make our memories for us! Last month, my depression turned me into a hermit. Where does that really get you? The best way to crawl out of a rut is to force yourself to change your behavior. October will be spent creating memories I will cherish filled with people that I love. No canceling plans, we’re chasing beautiful adventures. I’m definitely jumping head first into everything autumn or Halloween created – so catch me on the next hay ride.
✩ OCTOBER GOALS ✩
Setting a few goals at the beginning of the month is definitely a habit you want to pick up! Clear specific goals under a specific time frame (a month) allows you to really zone in on what you need to get done. I definitely find this helpful for when I make weekly goal list, as I make them each something to help me reach the overall monthly goals. The goals you pick don’t have to fit one specific category, it can be anything from work/career to health and body image. As long as you pick goals that are attainable and worthwhile, you are in the right step.
Need an idea on what I’m talking about? Here are my October goals
- Wake up at 6 am every weekday morning.
- Write in my journal everyday
- Post on Instagram 3-4 times a week.
- Post new blog posts 3-4 times a week.
- Read a book for at least an hour a day.
As you can see, my October goals are all about disciplining myself and putting myself on a routine. I can’t wait to achieve these goals for myself and see all the benefits manifest. I’ll do a check-up at the end of the month to see how easy or hard it was to do so!
