Hello and here I am with the final week of Go-getter April!
Just in case you missed Week 1, 2 or 3
Week 1 was about how to start the journey.
Week 2 was an update on what I’d been up to.
Week 3 I discovered the key ingredient!
I really enjoyed doing this theme it was fun writing the posts every week and it actually had an effect on me. Even though April is over I will still continue on my Go-getter journey and see where it takes me (hopefully great places!).
That being said,this theme wasn’t just for me it was for you too!
I want to thank you all for supporting this theme, helping me promote an idea, a concept, a movement!!!
It honestly feels so good to go after the things I want in life, dedicating my time to things that matter; rather than insignificant things that give me nothing but anxiety.
So I guess this is it, another month is up…
…for fear of rambling on I’ve decided to end the post with some words by good old Hubbard:
A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success.
Hello and welcome to week 3!!!
I’m currently sitting in my conservatory all warm and snug with a blanket, listening to the sound of the rain.
So, the past week I have been trying out persistence- the fact of continuing in an opinion or course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.
I think its a key quality for anyone trying to be a go-getter. In life going after the thing that you want is rarely going to be easy, but its having the persistence to keep going that makes you all the more grateful.
Its think it’s difficult to truly appreciate something you haven’t worked for. I’m sure you can think of at least 1 thing, for me it would be some of my GCSE grades.
In my classes at 6th form I’ve met people who I relate to in the fact that we find it difficult in comparison to the majority. I always like to try and encourage or help these people if I can. I just quite like talking to people and once I get to know a person, I always want them to do well. Also I think that its because I believe that every person has the potential to be great.
I admire all those old scientists like Isaac newton, Robert Hooke and Thomas Edison. The great things that they did make them seem like so much more than ‘just people like us’.
My Week 3 message: you have the potential to be great, all you need is persistence.
On Monday I was ILL and it was terrible. I had a runny nose, a pounding headache, my body ached and of course I was sneezing, a lot!
After spending the morning feeling incredibly sorry for myself and doing nothing more than watching YouTube videos, I decided what I needed was to take a walk and get some fresh air.
I’m lucky enough to live in an area that has many great places to walk where you can be at one with nature. Less than 10 minutes from my house there is a river, canal, nature reserve and a meadow.
I wore black leggings, an over sized shirt and a patterned top. Its not my usual style but for a day that I wasn’t feeling my best, it was good enough.
After walking for over an hour, I felt refreshed and in a much better frame of mind.
Welcome to week 2!
For the past week I have been:
Waking up between 7-8am and studying
Making and drinking smoothies
Using my sewing machine for the first time since I got it
Planning future blog posts
Spending time with my nieces and nephew
Creating a to-do lists for each of the subjects I study
Ticking things off my todo lists
Re-organising my closet
The past week I’ve been feeling great simply because I feel like I have finally established a good balance between study and ‘play’!
Also I actually kind of like studying!!!! (sort of). Its not that bad once you get into the routine of it; for me that means starting in the morning for a couple of hours, then doing smaller amounts throughout the day.
Everything else I have gotten up to over the past week has been pretty chilled but still add something to my journey of taking on the go-getter lifestyle.
When I think of the word go-getter, my initial thought is some action-packed, fast-paced life. In reality, I believe a go getter is a person who makes a conscious effort to go after what they want, no matter how small.
Often when I’m heading out on a Saturday morning or afternoon, the thing I want from my outfit is absolute comfort.
In the case of this outfit it meant baggy jeans and a baggy cardigan with a grey crop top.
The crop top is from New Look, the cardigan from Tkmaxx and the jeans from Dorothy Perkins.
So I’m currently in the process of organising my wardrobe for the spring and summer,which means packing up my winter clothes for storage and taking out my summer dresses and some other bits and pieces.
It got me thinking about my ideal wardrobe. I’ve always liked the idea of having a dressing room full of all my clothes shoes and accessories with a full length mirror.
So these are just a few closets that I like which I found via Pinterest, the perfect site for creative inspiration!
This outfit was created from the fundamentals of many of the outfits I wear: a mini skirt, a thick belt and a top/sweater tucked in. This skirt is one of my favourites as its very light and I love the colours on it. As usual the outfit is very basic, simple and casual.
The weather was a little chilly so I knew I would need another layer. I tried my denim vest and my blue toggled coat. Both looked good but I decided a coat would be better to keep me warm, so that’s what I wore.
