Day 78 was as standard as it gets for me, getting everything done on my to-do list and tackling other ideas that I’ve been chewing on for a while. One thing that I’ve noticed during this challenge, is that the daily routine that I set myself in order to tackle my goals everyday, used to seem so much harder to achieve.
Now I find myself more and more often with spare time left to try new ideas, as well as cramming more of the actual task I have set myself into the same time slot (like getting through more songs in guitar practice!). It definitely helps with the motivation to keep getting up at the witching hour and cram as much of my day in as possible!
I hope you have a fantastic and successful day today!
I’ve been pushing my body a little harder in yoga and yesterday it felt like it all caught up with me. My body ached all over, but it will be worth it! There’s something very satisfying about the post-workout ache, don’t you think?
I also started creating a new dress to flex my creative muscles, and started dreaming up a million other ideas as I wandered around a sewing supplies store… a danger zone for my saving plans when there’s a sale on…
I hope you’re having a satisfying and successful day today!
Sunday was another busy day of getting last minute bits done to prep for the next week, work, music and dress design and customizing.
I also realised that my “weekend gig” is slowing down for the year, which isn’t ideal as I’m trying to save up to attend a conference on the other side of the world next year! a well as a few other projects I have in mind, so I had to start looking at other ideas for extra income.
I had also been looking forward to a talk by James Aspey in the evening, but when the time came, I really wanted to keep going on guitar practice and getting creative with my dresses, so I think it’s safe to say my creative fever is growing!
Queue John Travolta…
Have an epic and successful day!
Day 75 was a pretty busy one! I got a heap of stuff done around the house, and finished the night off at work. I also filmed the entire day with the intention of uploading a vlog this morning, but when I opened up the files, I realised I’d run out of memory on my way home, which was the highlight of the whole night, with a discussion a really positive lady who made my night!
The people you choose to be around affect your mood and energy, but you get to choose whether the people around you are ones that affect you positively or negatively. This goes for day-to-day interactions as well as your inner circle!
I hope you’re squeezing every drop out of your day today!
Day 74 just happened to be a public holiday in my region, which is AWESOME, because it meant I got to spend the entire day being creative and still have money coming in.
I spent the day solely on my creative goals, practicing guitar, listening intently to new music and trying to pick out what they were doing, and I stopped in to a second hand clothing shop to nab some items and fabrics that I could start to play with. It is the first time in a long time that I have forgotten to eat… a good sign goals-wise.
I managed to pick up a couple of plain black dresses which I can customize and play with, but what I am most excited about is a red pattered fabric that I can make into something completely my own!
I capped off my exciting and adventurous day with a very rare night out with my partner, to attend a performance called Cirkopolis, a blend of circus arts, theatre and dance, set in the industrial era. Definitely fitting for the theme of the day, and I think my partner appreciated some extra time with me! The hustle comes with sacrifices, but I try to nab extra time where I can. It’s the little things that keep a relationship going!
I hope you’re having a marvelous, fantastic, and successful day today!
This Friday is a public holiday, which means Thursday (Day 73) was pretty busy trying to do two days worth of work! I am soo looking forward to having a whole other free day to practice guitar, and try a million other creative ideas that have been building up in my head over the week!
Here’s to chasing my creative goals!
I’ve always felt like I needed to split any of my spare time between further educating myself for the science career that I studied for, and exploring my creative side. When I was younger, I created a lot of my clothes from scratch, or turned second-hand clothes into something new. I was also learning music, lost myself in hundreds of books, and I loved to sing (on my own! haha). I felt like I had to pick a path for my future, and after struggling with it for years, eventually decided that science was what I was going to go for, but the struggle continued.
Every time I find myself with a spare few minutes, it has been an internal struggle, so after sleeping on it, and since I’ve spent the last few years studying and trying to work in the sciences, I woke up on Day 71 happy with my decision to spend a year giving my creative side free reign. I’m soo excited! This will also the weight out of my decisions when I’m working on my goals, because I know now that I will be focusing on the creative ones, and coming back to the others later.
I’m excited to look back on this post in a year’s time and see where I got to!
I hope your smashing your goals!
