So simple enough... Set 10 aims for the summer...
This year has been manic. My life is a bit of a whirlwind at the moment + I need to be still, take stock + just breath in some fresh air.
2. Sleep well.
I am a machine during term time, I am conditioned to wake up at 5.30am every morning (I don't need an alarm clock). I am usually in bed by 10pm as I need my sleep. But I am truly shattered from my most intense year yet. I want to be lazy + stay in my PJs until midday.
3. Eat well.
My diet has gone to pot. I function on caffeine + sugar rushes at the moment. I need to be healthier. I want my hair, skin + nails to shine again!
I need to be kinder to myself. I cannot wait to go for some massages, to get to the gym, to do some stretching + to have my hands and feet done.
My holidays are my light at the end of the tunnel - my flights are booked for Canada to visit my best friend, we are then off to Cuba for an adventure where another friend will join us. I am excited about experiencing the culture, listening to the music, lying on the beach + going out dancing.
I have always been a book worm. I have a pile of inspirational reads beside my bed waiting to be consumed. This year I am being a bit of a geek + have a lot of professional reading - I want to be re-inspired for next year.
My friends have been really supportive this year, both professionally + personally, I need to remind them how much they mean to me. I am looking forward to chilling out, chatting over cocktails or a picnic in the park.
My Mum has not been very well this last year, she is only young + it has been a bit of a scare for us all. Dad was also in a horse-riding accident a few weeks ago. Both are feeling frail + need some TLC. Events like that make you realise that none of us are Peter Pan. I need to go home for a bit + spend some down time of their farm, drinking tea, playing scrabble, going for walks + having barbeques.
I want to laugh so deeply it makes my sides ache. Spending time with my nephew + niece always puts a smile on my face. The friends I am travelling with are crazy + cheeky. I want to shake off my responsibilities + not have a care in the world for a few weeks at least.
I am planning some big life changes next year, I need to take some time to plot + plan.
So tweeters - what will be your #summer10?
