Small Aspirations

Small Aspirations

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]e all have big challenges and aspirations for the year ahead, and that’s awesome. I’ve set a few blogging goals but nothing major so far – don’t want to have the added pressure and disappointment, etc. That said, there are a few small things we can achieve every single day, in order to make our lives that little bit brighter.

I sat down with a big mug of tea and had a think about all the things that I could do daily/weekly/whatever, to make my life feel a little more together. Tiny little things, superficial or not, that would really boost my mood.

Have a look – there’s something for everyone.

  • Practise yoga is SO high on my list of things to do this year! I wish I had space in my Uni bedroom to do it but maybe my flatmates won’t mind if I do it in the kitchen haha

    Go for coffee alone and letting others know they are appreciated stuck out to me because the latter is actually one of my own resolutions 🙂 But my fear of eating/drinking alone in public is so unreasonably large. I really need to be able to do it. It’s not that serious lol. But thank you for sharing this post, girlie! I definitely wrote down a few things I’m going to do on a regular basis too.

    This is so lovely Imii! I really love the idea of small achievable things every one of us can weave into our daily life. Practicing yoga and DEFO playing SIMS are high on my priorities this year! Going to save this post and look back when I am in need of a little inspiration. Immy x
