Picking up from my last Life Lately update which you can find here.
I’ve also been working on my Powersheets. I’m really trying to be intentional with goal setting for the rest of the year. Q2 is over in two short weeks! This is the perfect opportunity to reevaluate goals and get pumped for the next half of the year!
Also, in an effort to start minimalizing (is that a word? decluttering? moving towards minimalism or whatever), I’ve started mailing books to friends when I finish them. This is good because 1. it gives me the chance to share knowledge with friends who I know would appreciate them, 2. helps me get rid of books that we don’t have room to store anymore, 3. gives me an incentive to keep finishing books (decluttering), and 4. it gives the books new life.
I read a blog post where the writer argued that planning your Instagram content was more important that writing blog posts. Instagram-me is 100% unaltered, unfiltered me. I usually don’t even proofread my captions before posting them, haha. No, but actually, I’m not going to do that and while I respect other bloggers might feel differently, I’m a little over inauthenticness. So here was me in a morning facemask.
This past Christmas I splurged on Essential Oil Kits for Christmas. Many months later, I finally finished my first bottle! On Rachel‘s recommendation, I’m going with Thieves next! My goal is again to help declutter without throwing things away that still have value, so I’m using them, but also appreciating them as I’m using them. I love my oils. Do you use oils?
