Life // Taking Stock

Photo via

Pretty sure every time I do one of these taking stock posts I love the idea of it but halfway through I’m like why am I doing this? I keep pushing through though because I really like reading over the old ones as I connect with my emotions from the last time and that helps me figure out where I’ve personally improved and perhaps where I need to get back to.

Anyway, if you haven’t done one of these types of posts before, I definitely recommend you do it. You don’t have to do it publicly!

Making : All sorts of crafty things now that I have a new printer
Cooking : Lots of dinners with Bacon. Bacon is so good

Liking : Illustrating again. Even though I’ve literally only just started I’m so excited to do it again
Wondering : How people manage a great work – life balance without everything falling out of line
Loving : The me times I have in the mornings I’m giving myself
Pondering : How to get exactly what I want out of life… aren’t we all?

Hoping : That summer will stick round a little longer
Marvelling : At my friends who are going and getting what they want
Wearing : Comfy clothes and nothing else
Following : The people in my life that inspire me
Noticing : How I really need to make an effort with my friends
Knowing : I need to have an organising session with myself on so many levels
Admiring : My friend Sam and everything she’s doing for herself and wellbeing at the moment. You go girl!
Sorting : My life out – haha?
