Happy hump day, I hope you are all having a great week! Today I thought I would share with you how I am doing with my Hopes & Dreams so far! If you haven’t read it and have no clue as to what I am talking you can read all about it here! I’ll keep it short and sweet 🙂
In my post at the start of the year I split it into 4 areas and I am going do the same again today!
I posted that I wanted to visit Prague, Copenhagen, Ibiza, Dubrovnik. I don’t think I’ll be visiting any of these places this year but I have been to Italy, Austria and have plans to go to Spain and Bulgaria in the next few weeks!
Travel is a big part of my life, I love to have something booked to look forward to! Even though I probably won’t be visiting these cities this year I definitely have lots of travelling on the cards; I do have itchy feet at the minute to get somewhere further a field booked – I have been thinking of New York if you seen my last Friday Five post – you will know that I just love new york.
This year I wanted to spend more time with family and friends, I found last year I didn’t make that much effort and work just took over my life so I put a stop to that this year!
I have been spending more time with family and friends, I probably could make more time but I am doing quite well so far! I still need to better myself at keeping in touch; a message can come through to my phone and it isn’t to a week later that I realise I haven’t replied so I need to concentrate on that! I am agreeing to more days/event/nights out etc…Yay!
Taking time for me is something I haven’t really done before until this year and I have to say it is making a difference to my life! The main things I have started to do are watching some of my favourite TV shows, reading a magazine or a book or just taking time for a chilled cup of tea, taking time off from work and I am also eating slightly healthier these last few weeks as well!
There are some things from my previous post that I need to work on but I still have 9 months left for that! 😉 One of the things on my list was play my piano more, well I haven’t stuck to this at all so I am definitely going to start from this 3 month point as I love playing the piano!
I have been doing a lot of thinking about what I would like to do when ‘I grow up’ but I haven’t come any closer to finding out what that is! If you have been following for a while you will know that my family own a bar/restaurant but I can’t see myself doing that for the rest of my days!
In my post at the start of the year, I set myself some goals to work towards! Some of them I am working on and others I haven’t done anything only think about them! One of the points was to learn to deal with customer complaints better, as I said in the previous post we don’t have many so it is hard to better myself! I think maybe I am too straight with people when they complain, explaining the situation exactly how it is; I need to find a new way to deal with complaints maybe I need to learn from my brother! lol He is a much more compassionate, people person than I am! 😀
I have only made little improvement in the last 3 months which is better than nothing I suppose 😉 If I hadn’t written the My 2017 hopes & dreams post back in January I honestly don’t think I would have made any improvements at all!
I hope you enjoyed my quick round up of how the last few months have went! I will do a more in-depth version at the 6 month mark if you are interested! Hopefully you are sticking to your hopes & dreams for this year as well, if you aren’t or you haven’t set yourself any goals then there is still plenty of time yet! 🙂
Thanks for reading 🙂 if you want, let me know how you are getting on with your year!
