August is here, when did that happen? It feels like July has been
and gone in the blink of an eye. I’ve been home from travelling for 7 weeks and haven’t really set any “official” goals for myself. New month, new goals and endless possibilities. August is my month to achieve great things, six things in particular spring to mind …
1: Maintain a healthy lifestyle
This is always an important part of my life on a daily basis. I consider
what I’m eating, when to exercise and insure relaxation time is taken. I have
to admit that there has been a few slip ups in July with birthday celebrations and general mis-eating on my part. August will be different because my goals for fitness are pretty much my top priority!
2: Consider what my next steps are, career wise
I’m currently temping to keep a steady wage coming into my life,
although I don’t want to keep doing this because its not the best pay if I’m
honest. I’m keen to travel again and explore the world and that’s when it hit me. Apply to work in another country again, I’ve been considering a
Ski Season in France or a position on a Cruise Ship would be the perfect fit
for me. Time to get that CV 100% up to date and that cover letter written because those jobs aren’t going to apply for themselves.
3: Develop my Photoshop skills
Since I’ve become more and more involved in the blogging world I want to
develop the quality of my photography, thats where Photoshop comes in. Photoshop is an amazing tool used millions of bloggers and photographers to enhance their images. I want to be able to use the programme at an intermediate level by October / November time. I could continue using videos to expand my knowledge but I’ve seen a few courses that would be helpful. Maybe a course then …
4: Develop BunnyKitch
For those who don’t know BunnyKitch is my homemade jewellery brand which specialises in affordable fashion pieces, starting from only £2.95 its a hard bargain to resist! 🙂 I want to expand my customer base to gain new ones, I haven’t fully organised a strategy to how I will achieve this but I know it will include fellow bloggers who would like some freebies and social media. Take a look here!
5: Stay organised in general
I recently ordered a planner from The Blogger Planner to organise
myself, not only for my blog posts but also in day-to-day life. Sometimes
I’m missing small tasks that need to be done regularly, when I miss things too often I have to spend a whole day catching up. Solution: GET ORGANISED.
6: Learn a new language
I cannot believe I forgot this on my ambitions for the month when I wrote the post. Silly me … learning a new language has been at the back of my mind for a long time. After living aboard and seeing other travellers having to learn english, it inspired me. I choose French because at the time I applied for ski seasons in France, also because I am unable to role my R’s as you need to in Spanish and Italian 🙂
Do you have any ambitions for August?
