Hi everyone! On today’s day of Xmas I thought I’d share with you some goals that I’ll hopefully do! 🎵😂 Since I revisited my Autumn bucket list HERE I have been trying to think up achievable things that I would like to accomplish this winter and today I thought I would share them with you! When I was little I used to think that winter only took place in December 🙈😂 so now that I know the truth I am determined to have some goals that will actually see me through to real spring! 😂 So here we go! This winter I would like to:
Firstly complete 12 days of Xmas!
I have all of these posts ready to go up but you can never be too sure that all will go to plan can you? My WordPress might spontaneously combust as soon as I look away and just like that 12 days of Xmas would be over! 😯 (Sometimes I have to get in contact with WordPress because drafts open up empty! 😫 But they help get back my work!) Okay so we can’t plan for that kind of thing 🙈😂 but what I mean is until 12 days of Xmas is completely done I will be holding my breath for any hurdles as I’ve never posted everyday before so this is all very new to me! 😂 I hope I do complete it though! 😄
Post my Festive fairy light box lyrics photo to Twitter every day until Christmas!
This is not something that can be scheduled as every post links after the other and so I must remind myself to upload each photo everyday. I’m really enjoying tweeting them so far and am so happy that I have taken all of the lyric photos already or else I fear I might I have gone mad by now 😂 I am posting each Christmas lyric everyday HERE on Twitter and will do a round up of them all on the 11th day of Xmas on Christmas Eve!
Complete my Christmas shopping!
Back when I drafted this post I was at that stage where I could see no end to my Christmas shopping but now that I’m typing it out I know what last bits I am going to get and the end is in sight and it looks glorious! 😯😂 I’m much further along than I thought I would be 😂🎁
Get into a proper sleeping routine!
Now that “I’m a celebrity get me out of here” has ended I don’t feel like I’ll miss anything if I go to bed early! 😂 Seeing as this bucket list will take me into the new year I might also include this goal in my new years resolutions post! I want to start going to bed early and waking up early so that I have a full day ahead of me. So far this has been difficult to do alongside my flare-ups but I reckon if I ease into it I might just make it work.
Get back into drawing! 🎨
Back when I was in school, art was one of my favourite subjects (other than English) and because I was very shy I think that’s all that most people knew about me: that I carried around a sketchpad and it was the only thing that I could rack up the courage to speak about on some days when others asked to see the drawings 🙈😂 when I became homeschooled I had to drop art as I couldn’t get in to access the material needed for the exams and English jumped up a notch to becoming my favourite (alongside geography for some reason 😂). This change in subjects meant I had to take up a new one, I chose business which has led to me doing accounting now (it’s strange how things work out when I never thought I would have been able to do a maths based subject before 🙈😂).
Recently I started drawing again and am finding it so therapeutic! It’s something that can be done whilst I’m having a flare up and in those moments I am filled to the brim with inspiration. It’s a lovely feeling and I want to get more into doing it again. I don’t know if I would feel comfortable sharing it on here but you never know as I feel like I’ve shared nearly everything else as I can’t keep myself from not doing so 🙈😂 I’m beginning to realize that my creative side can be shown in more than just writing poems, stories and randoms although just like I did when I was younger I find it difficult to set to on drawing imaginary things 😂 when I’m in pain I can draw made up stuff and it feels like it helps me get it out of my system so hopefully I will keep at it!
Don’t push myself
I feel like I should virtually staple this to all of my seasonal bucket lists 🙈😂 what with there being so many amazing looking events around this time of year it is very easy to let my mind get carried away with itself and mentally list all the places I wish to visit. I need to remember that my health is no different than it is in any other season and that I should pace. If anything my flare-ups are slightly worse and I know that one of them is the result of going into one extra shop to get some Christmas presents 🙈😂 that one shop added onto the others and caused me a night of pain. I’m not going to lie I got a present for someone so it wasn’t worthless 😂 but that’s not the way I should be looking at it, especially when the flare-ups are extreme. Pacing is difficult but it can be done if I stand my ground against myself but also in the long run for myself.
Do new things!
This goal may sound like it contradicts the last one but I want to live whilst I pace 😂 Doing new things also doesn’t have to mean going out it can mean staying in too and making the most of the time I have where I have a choice with what I do and making nice memories.
Thank you for reading day 4 of 12 days of Xmas! 🎄What is on your Winter bucket list? Let me know and have a lovely day! 😉❤
