I’m already doing better because I’m writing my June post right after my May post and scheduling it ahead of time.
It’s not a huge thing, but for me this says a lot. June has definitely been a better month all around and I feel like I’ve worked on myself and turned my attention to myself more this past month.
About half way through May, my boss asked me if I’d want to go to a tradeshow in Greenland. I think the idea of traveling again really sparked something in me. Especially since I’d get to travel to both Greenland and Iceland, and these are both places that I’ve wanted to travel to for awhile.
I was still feeling pretty down at the beginning of June, so I tried to just do things that made me happy. This brings me to the theme for the month. The bullet journal version isn’t quite as nice, but I painted a mural on my bedroom wall.
This was definitely a spur of the moment kind of thing and also partly because I was bored, but I think it came together really nice. I didn’t even have to buy any paint, I just used what I found in my basement.
My bedroom was all white and gray before, so this certainly added a pop of color that was much needed. I’m not going to lie, it also makes me so happy to wake up in the morning and see all these colors first thing. I totally sets the mood for the whole day.
There was a lot that happened in June. My sister and I did a backyard BBQ for Father’s Day, and that was really fun. Father’s Day also just happened to fall on Freya’s first birthday so that was exciting to celebrate her birthday as well. I got her a cupcake from the pet store and she engulfed it, it was pretty funny and adorable.
I also have paid more attention to my health this month. I’ve let myself be pretty bad with eating and drinking, so I’m trying to be more mindful of that. I’m not happy with my weight, so I’m trying to just choose meals that are better for me. I’ve also started drinking less and I’ve been trying to go for walks and exercise more.
I’m looking forward to July. I have some time off work and I’m planning on just laying around my parent’s pool the whole time. Taking it easy and living life.
