I didn't reach my goals and that's ok... I think.

A little under 11 months ago I wrote a post having just returned from Edinburgh Fringe Festival outlining 5 goals I wanted to achieve before I returned to Edinburgh in 2016. 

My annual trip to Edinburgh does this to me. It fuels me. As much as I love to travel and see new places, as much as I love my home town, and where I am at now in life, Edinburgh during the fringe is the next level. It's career goals, friendship goals and confidence goals all rolled into one. And it's next level because it can not last. Edinburgh fringe is a month long festival and whether I'm there for 4 days or 4 weeks it's my happy place. I spend my time seeing shows and getting inspired. I spend time with friends, drinking and dancing and generally getting into some pretty deep conversations about life and where we want to be. I spend time checking in and refocusing, and every year the feelings and the things I want change, but the fringe remains.

So last year I came back realising that having spent a year settling into my "real job" and career it was time to start looking outside of my 9-5. I had just started a new relationship with the young man, and my life was moving forward, but there were things I felt were holding me back.

Happy Friday no.15...

Happy Friday everyone! How the devil are you? Sorry I've been quiet around these parts lately, I've been focusing on tidying up my life! What has your week been like? I hope you've had plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine, it's taken it's time to get here, but summer (ie. this week) has been a scorcher so far!

Anyway while this sunshine has put plenty of us in a jolly mood (when we're not sweaty and complaining about it) even when we've had grey skies, I've had plenty to be happy about lately...

Morning Monday | Setting myself a word of the week...

Happy Monday all! How has your week started? Mine has been good so far, although as always getting up this morning was very difficult!

It's been a while since I checked in with any sort of goal orientated post over here, so I thought I'd give you a little update about how I'm feeling about life at the moment. Overall things have been going pretty well, work has picked up again, and my freelance work is going well. Health and fitness wise I'm doing ok, I can't remember a time when I maintained one weight for so long before so that's good. Money could always be better, but thanks to the freelance work isn't dire. I've got plenty of social activities lined up for the summer, and I'm really happy with how things are going on my blog at the moment. So all in all, I'm in pretty good shape, but still I can't help thinking I'm missing some sort of structure at the moment.
