The month ahead…
Read | Girl Boss by Sophia Amouroso – I’m maybe the last person in the blogosphere to pick up the inimitable Sophia Amoroso’s guide to being a bad ass business lady. Everyone and their mom seems to have already read and raved about this little book, so I’m jumping on the bandwagon to see what’s up.
Learn | More about my Natal Chart and astrological readings – I’ve been delving deeper into astrology lately and have been digging into the more scientific side of what some might consider a “pseudo-science.” I recently had my chart done via this site (and about six others, but this one is the most thorough as far as I can see) and the accuracy is unnerving. Things about my sign (Libra) that never quite made sense to me are now explained, all by the ways in which the other planets interact with it, based on the day and time I was born. I know it might sound cray, but if you’ve ever studied Quantum Physics or things like Chaos Theory or the Butterfly Effect (not the Ashton Kutcher movie), you can’t help but feel that maybe there’s something too all this woo-woo stuff.
Explore | Ojai! – We’re officially all moved in to our new home in Ojai, CA and I am quietly romancing the hell out of this little town. There’s so many nooks and crannies to explore and so many secret spots to discover. I’ve been traipsing around town, visiting some of the awesome used bookstores, figuring out which grocery store is my fav, and picking out my favorite chair at the local coffee spot. I gotta tell you, Ojai and I might be in it for the long haul.
Create | Bust out the good old sewing machine and get to stitching! – Most of my possessions have been languishing in my mother’s garage for the better part of the last 5-6 months. That includes all my sketchbooks, art supplies and my trusty sewing robot. I’m desperate to get my hands on them all and begin expending some of this creative energy. I’d like to get all my mending done this month, and maybe alter a couple skirts I have.
Health | Hiking and the return of the Daily Yoga Practice! – I recently picked up this hip little hiking book and I’m excited to start exploring the trails around town. I’m also getting back into Yoga and want to start cataloguing my daily yoga practice and fitness goals, like I was doing on here for a while.
Wealth | Get my Side Hustle started! – I’ve been talk talk talking about opening up an Etsy shop to slang some of my vintage collection for ages. It’s time to put my money where my mouth is and commit to making this dream a reality.
Happiness | Daily Journaling and Gratitudes – I’ve been working on this one for the last couple of months, actually and have found that it not only makes me more aware of the little things I have to be grateful for, but also it’s a great way to decompress after a long day. Going through my thoughts and the minutiae of the days events is helping me better understand myself, the ways I react to things and what I can do to be better. I’m learning so much about myself, my life and my emotions. I find myself in a situation and suddenly I’m very aware that my reactions are “typical” reactions of mine. Recognizing yourself is but a step on the path, and I’m beginning to see aspects of my personality and temperament that aren’t serving me. It’s enlightening to say the least.
