Easter Weekend 2018 which means it’s time for a life update and a look at how 2018 has been treating me so far. It’s actually sort of mixed feelings all around for me. I’ve had some pretty good moments but for right now I’m not really feeling too on top of the world especially since I’ve just spent 5 days, sick as a dog in London this week, feeling more vulnerable and alone than ever.
I started 2018 with a number of goals in mind – there were a few personal ones – positivity, making more time for me, spending more time with family and to travel to more interesting, new places. I feel decent about some of these, I’ve been positive about a number of things especially with starting physio to fix my hip and back issues and remaining positive and hopeful in spite of the fact that it’s taking a lot longer than I initially expected. Work-life balance is still not great, I tend to get carried away sometimes with travel plans and then making sure I fill my time in Malta to the max…it can get overwhelming. It can also mean I don’t have enough time to spend with friends and family which is really a pity. These need more work. As regards travel, hmm although I seem to catch a plane every other week, I haven’t actually travelled anywhere new this year so this is definitely a big fail. I am going to Amsterdam for the first time in 10 days though so yippee.
Then there were other goals about hiding less and talking more about me and all aspects of my life, I’ve been doing that on Instagram stories but not as much on the blog or facebook. It still feels difficult sometimes to find ways to merge my ‘two lives’ together and I welcome any suggestions or feedback you guys might have o just any topics you might be interested in.
I also wanted to be happier with my body and in this, it seems to remain a roller coaster of ups and downs, I know my perception is still way too tied to what numbers the scales are showing that morning and I know that this is one of the main things that must change. I also know that until I am back to exercising regularly and pushing myself and my body once again I won’t feel good. This is a bit of a chicken and egg situation though, I need to go slow and do certain exercises that will help me get there but I get bored and frustrated and I *ahem* skimp out on them…go figure.
In other news, I’m happy with my work in both my jobs, I feel like I achieved a lot already this year and whilst my restless brain will always have this niggling thought of ‘not doing enough’, ‘could have done better’, I am fortunate to have a hubby who both challenges me to improve but also forces me to see the good of what I’ve done.
I’m not making any new resolutions or setting new goals in this post, only using it as a way to keep me on track towards getting where I want to.
Hope you all had a lovely Easter Weekend and ate lots of chocolate 😀
