I’m writing my could-do list as its time to say good bye to June and hello to brand new month of July.
June seems a bit of a blurr if I’m honest I kind of lost my way a little in terms of blogging and just focused on the here and now for a little which I’m sure you’ve all done from time to time. I lost my mojo and started to question if I was going to keep writing at all, my daily ramblings and blog posts seem so irrelevant in comparison to what some have gone through and I’m sure we have all felt the negative vibes of the whole country over the last month or so with so many awful events happening in the world but also so much heart ache for friends and family who are having it tough at the moment, Its really puts things into perspective. You start to question everything, I know I do. From the world our children are growing up in, to why bad things seem to happen to good people.
But its a new month and although some people are still having it tough I’ve come to realise that as hard as it might seem we have to accept the reality, I’m not saying we ignore, become hard faced or insensitive to the terrible events in our own or in others lives, but we have to understand that whether we accept these hard times in our life or not horrible things do exist.
So Im getting my postitive pants on enjoying the here and now, taking nothing for granted and enjoying life. I have written my could-do list for July and I’m sharing some ideas of things you my like to try to do or enjoy for the upcoming month, but only if you want to the idea of the could-do list is there is no pressure to do everything but simply enjoy the moment and see where the month takes you.
So here is my could-do list….
Wander and take in life where ever you may go
Lay on the grass or sand, where ever you wish and close your eyes and enjoy the sun on your face.
Eat ice cream
Be more mindful take time to breathe, focus on your breath for a few minutes each day.
Get outdoors and enjoy nature
Ride a bike and feel the wind behind you
Eat home grown fruit and vegetables
Catch up with old friends
My inspiration for my could-do list was taken from The Simple things magazine, where they share a monthly list of could-dos. I’ve taken a few from their list and also added a few of my own. You can also see what I had on my could-do list for May here.
What would you put on your could-do list for the month of July ? I’d love to hear what your plans are for the upcoming month.
Until next time
