30 days has September, April, June and November all the rest have 31 except for January because that has 809.
I could try to be that stereotypical Blogger type who says the cliche things like “OMG you guys! You are amazing, like this is totally your year and January was your perfect kick start to a new and improved you” (of course I would have to say it in a really high-pitched IQ of 17 voice backed by no real life experience) but I’m sorry I just can't.
January was hard! Trying to do a changeover of mind frame is hard! Planning a new fitness routine is easy but doing it is hard! So, all I can say is if you survived January, survived the Christmas blues, and survived not being paid since the 20th of December last year without bursting into tears then you are my kind of human.
I have as you know from an earlier post decided to be a “journey wanker” and started following the Get Up & Go diary plan. January was focused on “Action” and although I didn’t sign up for another Triathlon or learn to play the Oboe, I did start putting plans into actions like I have a better gym routine involving the things I actually like, I got my sleep on track for the first time in years, completed Veganuary and adapted a new ‘reduce meat’ mind frame, I became an adult and got my finances in order and in a long-term plan, and I learned to meditate.
I also read the daily quotes in my GU&G diary which have actually helped me a lot. It may not sound like much, but I am a lot calmer in my reactions now, and what I mean by that is that I eye roll and tut at people on the tube instead of thinking I’m Conor McGregor ready to step in to an octagon, and I stopped sweating the small stuff because I now see that I can only do so much and I can only do my part.
Looking at it all wrote down now I am actually quite pleased with myself and what I have achieved in the grim month that is January. To be fair it did have 809 days, so I should have probably fit in a Triathlon and a new instrument but all I can do now is aim towards the action plans I’ve made and keep moving forward into the next month with them.
February in my Diary is focused on ‘Love’ so that’s what I’ll be working on this month. Luckily for me my world is filled with love and I have it in every aspect of my life, so when I was blank staring at my February bucket list that’s when I realised that because my life is filled with it already it’s about putting it back out there and making sure the people I love feels just as fulfilled...
...or as I said playing a board game with my family over Christmas 'fullfillfull'. I know! I’m aware that I am thick! - but I had 5 seconds to list 3 words ending with 'full' while my family all gawked at me, so I imploded and said fullfillfull.
So, congratulations on surviving January, and I wish you a Fullfillful February!
