NOVEMBER AMBITIONS

I can’t believe how fast this year is going, it feels like yesterday when I wrote my August Ambitions. Three months down the line I want to reflect on what’s been achieved and those goals which are still on-going.

 

 

August Ambitions were:

1: Maintain a healthy lifestyle

2: Consider what my next steps are, career wise

3: Develop my Photoshop skills

4: Develop BunnyKitch

5: Stay organised in general

6: Learn a new language

1: Maintain a healthy lifestyle

I have maintained a healthy lifestyle to a certain standard on the food side of things, although I have been eating more cake and treats the last few months. I have no issue eating healthy food, it’s the snacking which is the problem for me. Sometimes I can’t resist those sweet treats. This month I need to have more will power.

I’m not going to lie, over the last few months I haven’t been keeping up with my fitness and I’m feeling the difference. I’m tired all the time and feel as if I have no energy or motivation. This month will be different! I’m going to make the necessary changes to get my body back into a routine. Fitness is like anything, you need to learn something new and challenge yourself to ensure you stay interested. For this reason I decided to start boxing classes once a week. It’s the best decision I’ve made, with the different aspects of training you do indeed “feel the burn”!

2: Consider what my next steps are, career wise

I’m officially out of temporary work and landed a permanent position in mid October. Now I have a stable position, I don’t have to worry that I’ll be unemployed and loosing the opportunity to work. My career goals are always on my mind, I’m constantly working towards a new opportunity.

3: Develop my Photoshop skills

I haven’t been very focused on my Photoshop skills unfortunately because I’ve had other things to priorities. This is still an interest of mine but I think I will take it off the list for now.

4: Develop BunnyKitch

For those of you who don’t know Bunny Kitch is my homemade jewellery brand sold on Etsy. I’ve been looking into expand my customer base, over the last 2 months I’ve had an increase of about 3 sales minimum per week. I’m happy with those results and hope to continue growing as a small business.

5: Stay organised in general

It’s funny really, I’m an organised person at work but not so much in my personal life. In order to get organised I purchased a day planner to ensure I’m where I need to be and if anything needs preparing. It’s been working most weeks although I have still missed a few bits and bobs so improvements still need to be made.

6: Learn a new language

I’m currently 6 weeks into a 8 week night class in French. I’ve been told my speaking abilities have improved but I feel I need to be doing more studying during the week. I seem to attend my lesson on a Monday night then only do 30 minutes to an hour mid-week. I’m aiming to do writing, reading or speaking at least 20 minutes per day. I have an hour lunch so I’m able to fit this into my daily routine.

 

My ambitions for November remain to be all of the above minus Photoshop skills with an addition: 

1: Learn something new
Now I know I already do a lot of activities to keep myself well and truly busy but I do love learning and experiencing new things. I joined an acting class that runs every 2 weeks, I’ve been once and it’s a relaxing atmosphere where people can express and enjoy themselves while learning some handy acting tips. These kind of classes are great for developing confidence and expressing emotions about life in general you want to get out.

Some goals are meant to have a long-term date, how else would you truly give it your best effort? Over the last few months I have achieved part of the above and I’m happy with the progress made. Now let’s see what the next few months bring! Update to come after Christmas 🙂

Sincerely, Kimberly.

      I love setting goals it's so important because it shows what you've achieved also if your spreading yourself too thin and need to revaluate what you want to achieve within a time scale. Glad you liked the post! Thanks 🙂 xxx
