„What is this weird thing that all the bloggers have with holding flowers in their hands?“ I asked myself before taking these pictures. This morning I was out with my mum for breakfast, we came across this cute shop and I treated myself to some beautiful spring-ish flowers. No second thoughts behind this. I did not plan to use them for pictures. Well, we see how that worked out.
In a weird way I am always super inspired by other bloggers posts about their goals, like for example Alena. After reading about what she gets excited for in spring, I got inspired to share my goals too. What about your goals? Don’t be shy and share them below this post. So what is it about the season that comes after winter? I do love winter and I can’t get enough of it when everything is covered in snow. Still, there is something so magical about spring. It is accompanied by the same magic that comes with new beginnings in general.
It couldn’t be more of a coincidence that my university time is coming to an end at the beginning of spring. This screams for a blogpost about thoughts I have on the upcoming months.
My spiritual goals
More positive vibes
With every day that passes by, I am getting more and more a “positive vibes” kind of a person. I can’t stand it when I am surrounded by negative energy. This spring I want to nix the negative energy out of my aura even more. I will distance myself from people who are no longer on the same page as I am and I will be spreading more and more positive vibes myself. Living in and spreading an aura of positivity is going to help me with my stress levels. Long story short: I will be giving it my all to spread positive vibes everywhere I go.
Be at peace
Wow, is it getting a little bit too spiritual over here? Naaaah, I don’t think so. Being at peace can have a different meaning for everybody. For me it stands for: being at peace with myself and the path that is my life. As cheesy as it sound, (almost) everything is going to happen as it should be. Sometimes, in the hectic periods of life, I tend to forget that. Then I get anxious. I get stressed and I might even freak out. Being at peace with my path is making life so much more peaceful… even when everything around me is going crazy. Being at peace with my path goes hand in hand with being at peace with me and myself. My goal for spring is to calm down and start trusting the journey again. It will all work out.
My goals for my future path
Find out what my first steps after university will be
This undertaking has had its place on my agenda for a quite some time now. Last year already, I started to think about my life after uni, the thought of it excites me. However, I didn’t want to rush things and make huge plans before knowing for sure that I pass my last exam and my bachelor thesis. I am still waiting for my bachelor thesis but I have a good feeling. My goal for this spring is to come up with concrete plans – actions plans – for my future path. This will be though because my thoughts and wishes for the future are all over the place. If I don’t want to end up where I don’t want to be I have to take this seriously and start making concrete choices. At the same time, I have to focus on not only finding a path that makes me – the human being with feelings and emotions – happy but find the path that makes the GirlBoss in me happy.
What is the human being with feelings and emotions looking for? What is my inner GirlBoss looking for? I’ll make another special blogpost about that.
My goals for my health & fitness
Listen to my body – just like Sarah
Currently I am in this mood again, where I don’t feel like working out …. like at all. I feel tired and like I need a break from heavy HIIT workouts (which I normally adore!). The thing is, I cannot allow myself to only workout out when “I feel like it” because then my inner lazy girl would always win in the end. So my goal for this spring is to let go of the idea that my workouts always have to be super intense and sweaty. Yoga can be intense too but in a way more gentle way. And I would still beat my inner lazy girl. Listening to my body and doing what feels good has to be one of my priorities this spring. Working out but only what my body actually feels like doing.
Re-focus on nutrition again
Through watching every single one of Sarah’s videos (she is my own personal fitness and life inspo) I have learned that it is so important to eat the foods that your body needs to thrive. Of course, that also means listening to your body and allowing yourself some treats. In my case it goes way beyond this. My goal for this spring is to invest more time in cooking fresh meals and putting more thought into my nutrition again. I want my body to have all the nutrients that it needs. The past weeks I have let my good eating patterns slip a little too much.
My goals for my blog
Not beating myself up
Actually, I thought it would be easier to post regularly. Well, it isn’t … especially if you are having a full time job with different shifts. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to complain. Not at all. My goal for this spring is to accept the fact that my daily routine is not a routine at all and that I struggle with creating good content on a regular basis. It is ok and I am not going to beat myself up about it. As always I will do my best and create content whenever I have to opportunity to. Like today.
Okay people, this is it. I have written another blogpost and I hope your enjoy and treasure it as they don’t come regularly.
