As March comes to an end, I find myself breathing a huge sigh of relief. This month has NOT been good to me. There are many days spread throughout this month that make my heart ache & make me want to curl up in my bed and stay there until April.
On top of dealing with a few tough days related to my father this month, I’ve managed to stay sick for two straight weeks, get behind on all of my homework, and this past Saturday I had to put my cat down.
Suffice to say, I’m pretty finished with feeling sad. My emotions took over this month and I’ve been less than productive. I’ve purposely ignored goals, ignored healthy eating, and ignored homework. I’ve cocooned myself from all the things that matter and given myself a month of doing things that I need to do for ME. I don’t regret it, but it’s time to move on.
It’s time to get back to the basics of what this year is supposed to be about for me. I always let myself get really down in March (no matter how hard I try NOT to) so I really want April to be turning over a new leaf for me.
I’m ridiculously busy literally right up until March 31st (that is the day of the HUGE Hunger Games event I’ve tirelessly helped organize at work) but as of April 1st, I’m starting over.
Back to goals, back to healthy living, and most importantly back to trying to feel more like myself again. I need to get out of this March funk and get back to being excited about summer, 4 months off, and doing all the things I love. I want to plan a trip and get accepted into the school program of my choice. I want to remember how to just easily brush things off without feeling like I have a huge weight on my shoulders.
March has definitely not been good to me, but as of April? I’m going to make good things happen. Back to basics I go.
How has your March been? Any good plans for the coming months?
