Flourish Inside Out The Month That Was

January 2017: A hope-filled month

Wasn’t it just yesterday we were welcoming 2017? Making plans for the year, setting goals, stuffing up on goals…and just like that, it’s a brand new month.

In January, I successfully took a photo each day as part of my Flourish Inside Out challenge. I must admit, I’m already noticing how observant I’ve become daily as I try to look for something to capture. Something that will instil hope in some way.

I’ve read four books in January and reviewed two of then: Selection Day and Breathing Under Water. In January, I moaned about my lack of self-discipline but also signed up for the 12WBT challenge which commences next week. I also spoke about my pessimism which is one of the reasons why I’m doing my Flourish Inside Out challenge. I mused about early mornings and I’m pleased to say, I’ve been waking up at 5 again this year without too much difficulty. I share some tips about living in a share-house and also mused about removing toxic people from my life.

Off the blog, life has been pretty okay. I turned thirty-three, exercised as regularly as possible, enjoyed going to work and hitting the beach often. I had friends visit one weekend and another friend come over on Australia Day and a dear friend visit from the UK. I’ve not enjoyed the stinking heat probably more so because the place I live in is like a sauna unlike my unit in Sydney. I’ve enjoyed watching the cats play in the backyard and explore new smells and sounds. And finally, I’ve just liked exploring some new places, meeting new people and doing new things whilst knowing there’s so much more to see.

I’m looking forward to February. I hope it’s a good month especially on the health and fitness front. I am continuing my Flourish Inside Out project with the focus on love. More on that tomorrow.

    Sounds like an interesting challenge, Sanchie. Happy to know that you’re settling in and taking care of yourself. Ignore the toxic people around and hug things that make you happy. 🙂

    That is a great Neil Gaiman quote. I am certainly into learning more about him these days.

    Haven’t read any books yet, unlike you. Thumbs up to you!!! I’m basing on a poll I’ve posted, asking whether to start with “Game of Thrones” or “Hunger Games”. So far, it’s a tie, so I am asking peeps on my next post to please break the tie already, LOL!!!…I’ve not posted anything about January, and that’s actually my next one.

    Seems like you had a wonderful January 🙂
