Thoughts | September Goals

Hello again September, boy have you come around quickly. 2017 seems to have flashed before my eyes.

This month is going to be a busy one. I'm moving to a new city and starting university - eek. It's the start of a new chapter of my life, a chapter I'm determined is going to be amazing. I thought it fitting to create some goals summarising some of the little changes I want to make to my life, in line with the new start. 

1. Step out of my Comfort Zone
I'll be honest, just moving to Sheffield full stop is me stepping out of my comfort zone. For the first time in my life I won't have my family or my boyfriend there to hold my hand and I'll have to stand on my own two feet. Surprisingly though, I'm feeling very positive about the whole thing. I know uni will require me to step out of my comfort zone in a number of ways, for example; going on nights out (which is a rarity for me, I'll be honest) but I'm welcoming the challenge with open arms.

2. Seize the Day
September marks the start of a new life in a new city for me and I can't wait. I want to make the most of my three years at university; do new things (no matter how scary), meet a tonne of new people and just live life to the fullest. I want to seize every day, every opportunity and fully enjoy it, documenting my adventures along the way.

(Cheesy goal or what?)

3. Read More
September is going to be a busy busy month but I'm hoping to find the time to get a bit more reading done. I've always adored reading but life has taken over recently and I have struggled to dedicate  time to getting my nose in a good book. My plan is to hit the charity shops to treat myself to some new paperbacks and then get into a routine of reading every night before bed.

4. Get Active Again
Due to ill health all fitness-related activity had to be put on the back-burner a few months back. I'm hoping that if I take it steady I can get back into it. My uni accommodation has an onsite gym which I'm hoping will motivate me. I'm also hoping to try some new sports/ways of keeping fit in the new term.

5. Commit to Blogging
I had to slip a little blogging goal in there didn't I? August marked my return to the world of blogging and I want to continue working hard and staying committed in September. Regular posts, taking part in twitter chats, creating content I'm proud of etc. I have lots of blog post ideas in this noggin of mine and I can't wait to get writing in September.

Have you made any goals for the month ahead?
